Globals Over 50's Housing

2011 World’s Best Retirement Resort
Waterfall Hills and Waterfall Valley Mature Lifestyle Estate

Midrand-based Century Property Developments has beaten off more than 1,000 international competitors to walk away with the prestigious Globals 2011 for the world’s best retirement resort. The Globals Award is held annually to recognise excellence in over-50s residential housing. Mark Corbett, CEO of Century Property Developments says the award for best retirement resort in the world is a major coup for a South African developer, not to mention what it means for South Africa. “This category is intended to differentiate retirement ‘resorts’ from typical retirement villages and old age homes. The judges were particularly impressed by the focus on customised, bespoke homes, and the quality of amenities available to residents”.

CNBC International Property Awards

Century Property Developments is delighted to announce that its Waterfall Equestrian and Waterfall Hills Mature Lifestyle Estates won a total of six awards at the prestigious CNBC International Property Awards competition in 2009:

– Best Retirement Development in South Africa – 5 star award.

The CNBC International Property Awards is the world’s most prestigious competition dedicated to recognising the best real estate professionals and projects across the globe. The fact that Century Property Developments won six of these coveted awards shows that South Africa possesses the capacity not only to compete at this level, but also to triumph within the highly competitive European and African property arenas.

Entries were judged by a panel of professionals whose collective knowledge of the property industry is second to none. The judges included Eric Pickles MP, chairman of the Conservative Party, Ben Wood, industry head property markets of Google UK; Peter Bolton King, group chief executive of the National Federation of Property Professionals; Imtiaz Farookhi, chief executive of the National House Building Council; Christopher Hall, president elect of FIABCI; Wilhelm Harnish, Master Builders of Australia (MBA); Thijis Stoffer, International Consortium of Real Estate Agents Association (ICREA); Helen Shield, editor-in-chief of International Homes Luxury Collection magazine; and Gillian Farr, head of design at Laura Ashley Home.

Mark Corbett, CEO of Century Property Developments, said of winning the award, “We are truly honoured to receive these accolades. This is our first year of entering the Europe & Africa Property Awards, and winning in all five of the categories we entered is a wonderful achievement! We pride ourselves on our uniquely South African approach, and I reckon that it was the combination of environmentally friendly principles and aesthetically pleasing architecture that won the day for us.”

Local Awards

Century Property Developments is one of the most celebrated companies within the South African property arena. This sets the group apart from its competitors and allows it to set the benchmark for other developers to follow.

A Nedbank “Young Lion” is described as a person that displays the qualities of performance and productivity that raise above all expectations to reach unique levels of achievement.

Congratulations to the ‘Young Lion’ winner, Mark Corbett, on his remarkable achievement in winning this year’s prestigious accolade.
