The Communication Group plc is delighted to announce that Ballymore has been crowned Developer of the Year at the prestigious Property Week awards – the Oscars of the property industry, while London City Island, the new cultural hub for London, won the much coveted Placemaking Award – saluting another ‘epic year for the business’; the two successful entries were submitted by The Communication Group on behalf of Ballymore.
This accolade endorses Ballymore’s 36 years of success, as one of the UK’s most active and pioneering developers, and its unswerving focus on design and quality, allied to a commitment to energising communities through arts, culture and ‘placemaking’. A family-run property developer and one of Europe’s leading developers, Ballymore remains 100% under the control of the Mulryan family.
London City Island was recognised as the ultimate placemaking success story, having achieved its vision of becoming a new cultural hub for London which really contributes to London’s arts scene. With English National Ballet moving its headquarters to the island imminently, along with the English National Ballet School and London Film School and joining existing tenant’s arebyte, Studiomakers and Trinity Art Gallery, London City Island has achieved its goal to become a culturally vibrant neighbourhood which is having a positive social and economic impact on the local community.
