Going for Industry Gongs

Posted on October 17, 2011 | Awards

LANDMARK riverside apartments in an acclaimed £11 million development are short-listed for top building industry awards.

Already named the north’s best large housing development, 46 luxury apartments at Kendal’s Kentgate Place are finalists in both UK Property and Northern Design award industry competitions.

Managing director of developers Russell Armer Homes, Martyn Nicholson, said he was delighted by the accolades. He explained: “It was extremely important to us that the design for this prominent site on the bank of the River Kent delivered a very special building.

“The whole Russell Armer team is proud of what we achieved at Kentgate and we get many positive comments at local level. To receive great national recognition is the icing on the cake!

“The scheme sold well through a very tough economic period, which shows that quality development in the right location – and one that offers good value for money – will always be in demand.”

Winners of high profile UK Property Awards will be announced at a prestigious London gala dinner on October 28.

Meanwhile, Northern Design champions take to the stage at Manchester’s Lowry Hotel on November 24, compèred by George Clarke, of Channel 4’s Restoration Man.

Martyn Nicholson added: “We are celebrating our 50th anniversary and being nominated for top awards really makes this an exceptional milestone year.”
