Weston Homes' Bridges WharfWeston Homes, the Essex-based residential developer, has won the CNBC International Property Award for the ‘Best International High-Rise Architecture’ for its flagship Bridges Wharf development in Battersea.

The announcement was made during an awards gala dinner in November at the US Grand Hotel in San Diego. Bob Weston, Chairman and Chief Executive of Weston Homes who collected the award, commented, “Since we purchased the site in 2006 it was always our main aim to create an exceptional development with excellent design that would become an iconic landmark in Central London. To win the international award and to be recognised as the best in the world for architecture at Bridges Wharf proves that we have accomplished what we set out to achieve. It is a great honour and we are delighted.”

Having secured its place at the International Awards by winning the Five Star (Gold Award) for Best High Rise Architecture in the UK in October, Bridges Wharf beat off stiff competition from developments around the world in the America’s, Asia Pacific, Arabia, Africa and Europe categories to be crowned the world’s best.

Bridges Wharf, designed by Chantrey Architects, is Weston Homes’ jewel in the crown.
