It was a big night for team Scarborough Group on Thursday 7 July 2023 as we received not one, but two awards at the Insider Media South Yorkshire Property Dinner.
The annual event, held at Sheffield’s City Hall and attended by over 300 members of South Yorkshire’s property community, celebrates the outstanding developments and property deals across the region, as well as the real estate funds and advisers that made them a reality.
Kicking off our award wins for the evening with the Property Deal of the Year accolade was our record-breaking letting of Endeavour at Sheffield Digital Campus. Described by the judges as a “cracking deal”, the 65,000 sq ft lease to BT Group was the largest office deal in Sheffield for over three years and represents a multi-million-pound investment in the city by BT which, in addition to providing a welcome boost to the local economy, sends a strong message to any other businesses looking to locate in Sheffield that the city has strong credentials as a place to invest, recruit and grow.
Our second award was for Outstanding Development of the Year in recognition of our work to deliver the Community Stadium at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, which provides a range of flexible, high-quality office, retail and hospitality space for start-ups and SMEs in the sports, health and wellbeing sectors, in addition to a professional-quality, floodlit 3G pitch and covered Grandstand with capacity to seat 758 supporters. Commenting on Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park as a whole, the judges proclaimed it a “great success story”.
Nicola Bulley, Group Head of Marketing & Communications, commented:
“To say we’re honoured to receive the recognition from our peers for the contribution we have made and continue to make to the city of Sheffield, would be an understatement!
“These awards recognise the hard work and commitment of our extended teams who continue to go above and beyond so it goes without saying how grateful we are to each and every one of them. We’d also like to congratulate all the finalists and everyone else that collected an award on the night.”
