Last Thursday, 25th May, the ASPRIMA-SIMA Awards were presented in Madrid. The ASPRIMA-SIMA Awards are a reference in Spain for the public recognition of the best initiatives in the real estate sector and are held annually. This year’s edition of the awards saw a record number of entries for its twentieth anniversary, with a total of 125 nominations.
Stoneweg’s Skyline project was awarded the special mention for the best real estate performance in housing. Values such as the regeneration of the neighborhood, the image of a residential icon on an architectural level, sustainability, with the BREEAM international sustainable building certificate, and the sales milestone (95% sold and 50% rented) have been decisive for the jury to have chosen this project.
The final decision considered, among other aspects, the uniqueness of the business and real estate concept of the project, its architecture and design quality, by the prestigious Touza Arquitectos architectural firm, the incorporation of innovative elements: building process, accessibility, sustainability, energy efficiency and technology, and the impact and integration into the environment and compliance with current urban planning regulations. Regarding sustainability, the use of renewable or recycled construction materials, the reduction of the water footprint in its construction, as well as in the manufacture of construction materials or the use of renewable energies and measures to reduce the demand for energy, water and other natural resources, among others, have been valued.
The Skyline towers, 100 meters high, consist of two almost symmetrical buildings (603 homes) now part of the Madrid skyline, with terraces and exceptional views and incorporating in each tower two swimming pools, garden areas, shaded porches profusely decorated with native plants and low water consumption, an urban vegetable garden, gym and community room with a gastroteca.
The ASPRIMA-SIMA awards recognised a total of 13 categories in such diverse areas of the real estate sector as sustainability, innovation, urban regeneration, and emerging companies in the industry.
