Benguela Cove Estate Wins 2021 TITAN Property Award
Benguela Cove won Gold in the prestigious international TITAN Property Awards for architectural design, interior design, property development, real estate, and marketing from all over the world.
Penny Streeter OBE, a British-South African entrepreneur, is the developer of Benguela Cove. Streeter is a serial entrepreneur with interests in hospitality, recruiting, and real estate. Streeter, a dedicated conservationist, resides on the estate, which is the crown jewel of her collection. The allure of living in one of the world's most spectacular estates has enticed buyers to purchase more than half of this luxury creation. Residents enter a world-class sustainable environment that is governed by a homeowners association.
Benguela Cove Residential Estate was described as ‘One of the Most Formidable Property Developments’ in the World by International Awards Associate (IAA), the organisers. Penny Streeter OBE says: “We are delighted to win this award, which recognised all the incredible work put in by our team to create a real jewel in South African real estate developments.”
“We reward excellent design and ideas, innovative concepts, and groundbreaking strategies that go into developing exceptional properties. Where our efforts and passion helped advance the global infrastructure, through honouring remarkable property design projects and qualified industry professionals, setting a new benchmark for property-related excellence across the industry,” said Kenjo Ong, CEO.
More than 600 entries were submitted from 31 countries around the world, including the United States, China, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Mexico, Denmark, and Japan, to name a few. Each project was blind-judged by the TITAN jury panel, which consisted of eminent property practitioners from around the world, and was judged on the merits of the TITAN Property Awards. The winners were determined based on the jury members' average scores.
