On Friday 16 June, Victory Pier won two awards at the first-ever Medway Design and Regeneration Awards.
Berkeley beat dozens of companies to come first place in 'Residential Super Major' and the 'People's Choice for Regeneration Impact' for its Victory Pier development.
The prizes were awarded to celebrate Berkeley's radical transformation of a stretch of land by the River Medway, Kent which has created homes for thousands of people and a new tourist destination.
Once a redundant industrial plant, the site now offers:
- 841 new homes including affordable homes and homes for senior living
- Approximately 3,800 sq.m of retail and commercial space
- 80-bedroom hotel
- Student Village with 1,106 bedrooms
- Improvement works to the local pier and river wall
- Beautiful landscaping
- Creation of 226 full time jobs
Alan Edgar, Managing Director of Berkeley Homes (West London) said:
"Victory Pier is a thriving community with a mix of homes for first time buyers, students and senior living. We are delighted to have this recognised by Medway Council."
Victory Pier was one of several projects acknowledged for its contribution to Medway. Other achievements for the area in the past decade include the opening of a new rail station and new projects for home and leisure facilities.
