Competition for Development of the Decade launched

RESI, the UK’s largest residential housing conference, has launched a new award to coincide with its 10th Anniversary.

The new RESI 10 for 10 Award is sponsored by Mansion Global and recognises the best residential developments of the last decade. The 24 projects that have made the long list of 12 large and small developments will be narrowed down to a shortlist of 5 in each category.

Frontrunners for the prize include Royal William Yard in Plymouth by Urban Splash, Hanham Hall in Bristol by Barratt and Sovereign Housing and Royal Arsenal Riverside in London by Berkeley Homes, who will shoot it out for title of housing scheme of the decade in their respective categories.

Each development will have a showcase at a RESI and delegates will be asked to vote on their favourites, before two prizes will be awarded for the best Small and the best Large housing scheme.
