International architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan has played key roles on two projects that secured awards at last week’s Cityscape Abu Dhabi.
The company was responsible for the Al Bandar waterside development in Abu Dhabi, and was also concept masterplanner on Yas Island, which were named Best Residential Project (Built) and Best Urban Design and Masterplanning Project respectively.
Broadway Malyan director James Rayner said, “These prestigious awards are recognition for our client and testament to the world-class designs of our international teams, the diversity of their sector expertise, as well as our long-term partnering with the client.”
