Three wins for ICD Brookfield Place at the International Property Awards

23 February 2023

February 2023 saw ICD Brookfield Place win three prestigious awards at the International Property Awards. The architectural masterpiece, standing proudly at 282 meters tall, has quickly become a symbol of Dubai's ambition to be the world’s best destination for lifestyle and business.

The International Property Awards are widely regarded as the most prestigious awards in the property industry, recognizing excellence in architecture, interior design, real estate development, and marketing from around the world. Winning an award at the International Property Awards is a significant achievement, and to win three is a testament to the quality of the building and the team behind it.

ICD Brookfield Place was awarded:

  1. Best Office Architecture Arabia
  2. Best International Office Architecture
  3. World’s Best Architecture

The trifecta of excellence recognises the building's exceptional architectural design. Designed by world-renowned architects Foster + Partners, the tower stands out with its distinctive, prismatic design and sleek, clean lines. Its understated, elegant structure and bold geometry create a striking visual impact that is impressive, timeless and also sympathetic to its location in the heart of the DIFC. The building's design also incorporates sustainable features such as high-performance glazing efficient mechanical systems, and LED lighting helping it achieve the prestigious LEED Platinum certification.

ICD Brookfield Place is defined by its vibrant public spaces. The five-storey Summer Garden

is the accessible, flexible, publicly focused, heart of the scheme, with the garden being a destination in its own right. It is this sense of place that has encapsulated the heart of Dubai with its grand but welcoming space, abundant natural light and year-round climate control

The interior design is modern, elegant, and functional, creating both a comfortable and inspiring work environment and a lifestyle destination of equal quality.

The awards recognise the cumulative quality of the building - its design, construction, amenities and sense of place - and are a significant achievement for ICD Brookfield’s first joint venture. The building sets a new standard for buildings both regionally and worldwide. Its success is a source of pride for everyone behind it, and Dubai’s property industry as a whole.

Rob Devereux, CEO of ICD Brookfield expressed his delight: “Winning three awards including one for World’s Best Architecture is a huge testament to the architects and project team’s hard work. ICD Brookfield Place reflects our commitment to creating best-in-class properties and we are overjoyed to have received such a prestigious award”.

“ICD Brookfield Place was different to many other projects we’ve worked on because of its distinct character. This was an opportunity to bring something remarkable to the DIFC, making a real contribution to the district.” - Grant Brooker, Director and Head of Studio, Foster + Partners
