Burj Alfardan, located in Lusail smart city’s most coveted Marina District, has been awarded the title of ‘Best International Commercial High-Rise Development’ at the 2020 International Property Awards for its outstanding architectural design, development, and sustainability aspects.
The building’s state-of-the-art design is credited to Qatari architectural pioneering company, the Arab Engineering Bureau (AEB) which has received several international awards for their remarkable designs.
The International Property Awards celebrate the highest levels of achievement by companies operating in all sectors of the property and real estate industry. They are open to residential and commercial properties and professionals from around the globe.
The title gives recognition to Burj Alfardan’s visionary design, which features a cantilevered podium intended as a luxury showroom which transitions into a symmetrical sharp-edged 32 storey high-rise building wrapped in a glazed façade. Additionally, the judges were impressed with Burj Alfardan’s effective energy performance, water consumption, cutting edge technology, and high standards of safety and security that have been incorporated in the building.
