The CIJ Awards arrived in Slovakia Tuesday night to be greeted by an enthusiastic crowd in the Sheraton Hotel. Only projects with river frontage picked up prizes at the awards this year, which was held for the fourth time in Bratislava.
While there were nearly a dozen prizes handed out in various categories, it would be fair to say that a single scheme dominated the proceedings. Eurovea, by the developer Ballymore, not only impressed the Awards jurors and reader voters of its overall merits, but managed to take most of the individual honors as well.
