This year Property Week received a record number of entries.

The Personality of the Year award went to Steve Morgan, the outgoing chairman of housebuilder Redrow. A titan of the housing industry, Morgan founded Redrow with a £5,000 loan in 1974. Since then he has overseen its growth into a FTSE-250 company and one of the UK’s largest housebuilders with annual revenues of close to £2bn in 2018. When he announced his retirement as its chairman at the end of November, Redrow had just completed its 100,000th home. Morgan also received a CBE in 2016 for his philanthropic work.

Homes England took the Deal of the Year award for its acquisition of the 494-acre Northern Arc site in Burgess Hill - the agency’s biggest-ever land investment which will enable the delivery of 3,500 homes. It brokered deals with 11 separate landowners to secure the site, and contracted within 4 months. 

There were two winners in the Development of the Year category - Bow Garden Square by Poplar HARCA and Telford Homes and Television Centre by Stanhope.
