Our Art Deco inspired design for this apartment scheme in Palm Bay has recently been awarded the top accolade in the Margate Town Pride Awards. The scheme was voted the best of 12 shortlisted properties, and given a prestigious blue plaque.
We worked closely alongside the client and planning department to ensure that we were able to unlock the full potential of this site, whilst enhancing and preserving the historic character of the area.
The Isle of Thanet News reported that “The calibre of nominations received indicates a growing awareness amongst the Society’s members of the major contribution that both renovation of often run-down properties and the erection of well-designed new properties, make to the overall attractiveness of our town.”
Palm Bay, was recognised for its innovative, sensitive and eye-catching design, making a major contribution to the regeneration of the Cliftonville area. The development will now proudly display a blue plaque to mark the award.
These were the 39th Town Pride Awards, the Society’s Chair, Pamela Pople said: “I should like to thank everyone who has been involved, contributing to making this year’s event such a special occasion. This year is particularly poignant, as is the first Town Pride Awards’ event that we have held since 2019 and the ideal opportunity to celebrate the positive impact that projects have made in the local area.”
“I am delighted once again that we received nominations of such a high calibre, resulting in one Town Pride winner this year (Palm Bay) and 4 ‘Highly Commended’, each of which was diverse, reflecting the exceptional high standard of new projects that have been undertaken in the areas of Cliftonville, Margate, Westbrook and Westgate-on-Sea, which will contribute greatly in raising ethos and a sense of pride in our community.”
