Daren Wallbank collects OPP Award for Horizon Sky

With no time for the trophy for ‘Best Development Turkey – Highly Commended’ in the International Property Awards in association with Bloomberg Television to gather any dust, Horizon Sky was back in the limelight with a Gold Award for ‘Best Developer Turkey’ in the Overseas Property Professional (OPP) Awards for Excellence 2010.

Daren Wallbank for developer Signature International, collected the accolade in front of an ExCeL audience and commented, “Against the background of a tough economic climate we’re thrilled with the Best Developer Turkey win and truthfully think it’s well-deserved. Within its price range, Horizon Sky is a class above anything being built in the Bodrum region. For less than £90,000 we deliver larger than average two bedroom duplex apartments displaying minimalist architecture, superlative build qualities and a high specification as expected from Galliard Homes, our major shareholder. Not to mention access to an endless list of onsite facilities from a beachside Clubhouse to a rental management office. Sales are brisk for us as we believe that we have the formula spot on and are delighted that the OPP Awards judges agree to the extent of presenting us with a top-level Gold.”

This year, OPP gave an insight into the judges’ thoughts by releasing a short extract from their remarks. For Horizon Sky this read, “The Horizon Sky - Turkey entry for Best Developer stood above the rest in so many ways. Credibility and buyer confidence is paramount in today’s market and this development has struck an effective balance between contemporary and modernist architecture to introduce a new level of luxury to Turkey … whilst combining this with the trust and confidence Galliard Homes brings to the development.”
