Monday, 10 October 2022; At the lavish International Property Awards ceremony held at the exclusive Habtoor Grand Resort in Dubai on 6 October 2022, Waterfall Management Company was honoured with the Best Mixed-use Development in South Africa award for Waterfall (which recently rebranded as Waterfall City) for the eighth time in nine years.

In addition, Waterfall City walked off with two more Best in SA 2022-2023 accolades. LYT Architecture was awarded Best Leisure Interior for the Highline – Courtyard Hotel Rooftop Bar and Restaurant, while Balwin Properties won Best Leisure Architecture for the Munyaka Lifestyle Estate.

Besides scooping these prestigious awards, all three winners were also nominated for Best in Africa accolades by the International Property Awards – Africa and Arabia chapter. Now in their 30th year, the International Property Awards celebrate the very best projects and professionals in the industry worldwide, covering the regions of Asia Pacific, Africa and Arabia, Europe, USA, and the Americas, as well as the UK. Judging focuses on design, quality, service, innovation, originality, and commitment to sustainability.


The highest scoring, five-star winners from each category in Africa will be automatically put forward for re-judging against the five-star winners in the other regions of the world. Following this re-assessment, the 2022 International winners in each category will be identified as the ‘World’s Best’. These winners will be announced at the grand gala presentation dinner to be held at the Savoy Hotel in London in January 2023.


Waterfall City has to date won Best Mixed-use Development in Africa for seven consecutive years and Best International Mixed-use Development for four years running, from 2017 to 2020.


Willie Vos, CEO of Waterfall Management Company, said; “Winning the Best Mixed-use Development in South Africa award again certainly reaffirms Waterfall City’s world-class status. Such recognition is an ongoing achievement we, along with all our partners, are very proud of. It has been an honour to watch this development evolve, and having recently rebranded Waterfall to Waterfall City, we have entered a new and exciting phase of our evolution as a world-class Smart City. We will continue to showcase the excellence of Waterfall City and look forward to what the future holds.”
