They were accompanied by Sweid & Sweid’s Managing Partner Maher Sweid, and Development Manager Valeria Sevilla.
Commenting on the award, BSBG Partner Andrew Bereza said: “To get recognition at this level for a BSBG design project is a notable achievement for us. I think the International Property Awards is well regarded in the industry, and to win is to gain genuine recognition of excellence in design and delivery. The Edge was a great project for BSBG, and gave us our first opportunity to work alongside Sweid & Sweid. As a result of the wonderful outcome of that project, we are now in the construction stages of a new residential project in collaboration with a world-renowned hospitality operator, which promises to be a contender for even more awards.”You can read the full details about the design and development of The Edge, here.
