Double award triumph for Edinburgh development

THE Crescent at Donaldson’s in Edinburgh was named Best Luxury Development and Best Apartment Scheme at the WhatHouse? Awards 2019.

The double triumph makes the Richard Murphy-designed project CALA Homes’ most award-winning development, which over the past 12 months has seen it collect 12 awards across a range of housebuilding and construction sector ceremonies.

The project is an 84-home sweeping arc of glass-fronted apartments situated in the grounds of Edinburgh’s Donaldson’s estate, within the city’s UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Philip Hogg, sales and marketing director with CALA Homes (East) said, “From day one we’ve sought to do justice to what is a rare and important type of development. It therefore brings sheer joy to see our various teams’ and partners’ immense efforts rewarded and recognised at such a prestigious event, celebrating the pinnacle of UK property.

“The comments we received from the judges were excellent, especially in the Best Luxury Development category where we fought off stiff competition from some exceptional luxury developments in London. For The Crescent to receive two golds, to cap off a year that has seen it gain acknowledgement throughout the land, is something that we’ll be celebrating for a good while.”
