West One has won an award in the European Property Awards 2016-17 (Residential High Rise Development category). The international panel of judges, all property experts, is chaired by Lord Best. The development, currently under construction just to the south of Eurotowers, consists of 96 residential apartments, one floor of offices and a ground floor of restaurants. Off-plan sales were launched in July 2015 and all apartments sold in just 4 days, breaking records.
The developer, West One (Gibraltar) Limited, together with their development consultant and sales agency Chestertons Gibraltar, and local marketing agency Copywrite, were at the Marriott Hotel in Grosvenor Square, London last Thursday night to collect the award at a prestigious event in front of hundreds of European property professionals. Dominque Searle, Gibraltar’s representative in the UK, was a guest of the developer.
Evgeny Cherepakhov, chairman and owner of the development was clearly delighted.
“We put considerable effort into designing a development which Gibraltar needed and suited the local area. We were taken aback on launch by the sheer speed of sales which demonstrated just how successful our design team had been. The hard work didn’t end there. The award submission was a 40 page dossier covering every aspect of the design, marketing, selling and construction of West One. This is a proud moment for me. The hard work does not stop with West One though. We are now working even harder on Eurocity, the adjacent development. Hopefully we can bring a further accolade to Gibraltar,” he said.
Mike Nicholls, managing director of Chestertons Gibraltar sais this was very good news for “the developer, for us, for our clients who bought all the apartments in just four days and for Gibraltar itself”.
Mr Nichols said: “We are proud to serve as an independent development consultant, not associated with any developer by any connection at all, just there on merit. We added value, as part of a strong development team, from the time West One was conceived to when it was sold out. We now look forward to Eurocity.”
