More than 1,200 people gathered at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane this evening for the RESI Awards 2019, which was hosted by comedian Stephen Amos.
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.
