Discovery Place, the new high-performance global headquarters developed for Discovery in a joint venture of two of South Africa’s leading property companies, Growthpoint Properties and Zenprop Property Holdings, is the overall winner of the prestigious South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) Awards 2019.
These awards are a great reflection of the collaborative work achieved by the professional team in conjunction with the internal Discovery team to bring our brief for the building to life. We envisioned a physical manifestation of the Discovery brand, our core purpose and ambition to make people healthier and this is intrinsic to the design. Congratulations to the Growthpoint and Zenprop development teams and all the professional teams involved in creating a world-class facility.
David Pierre-Eugene, Discovery’s Head of Group Facilities
We’re ecstatic to receive this award as a testament to the commitment to excellence, the culture of collaboration and innovation, and the drive to exceed Discovery’s expectations that underpinned this joint venture of Zenprop and Growthpoint. Every single person who was part of this hardworking team can be as proud of this award as they can be of their contribution to the exceptional final product that is Discovery Place.
James Tannenberger, CEO of Zenprop Property Holdings
Growthpoint congratulates all involved in creating this leading-edge development. We appreciate that this development took place over several years; it was a marathon rather than a sprint, and every step in the journey and every person on this phenomenal team has made an amazing contribution. We are particularly proud of this building because rarely in the development industry are aesthetics, sustainability, agile workspace, functionality and cost-effectiveness combined in such harmony. It is a privilege to have Discovery as a client and work with its passionate, talented people. Growthpoint’s in-house development team couldn’t be prouder to have partnered with Zenprop to play a part in creating a workplace where Discovery, and its people, can truly thrive.
