Flashpoint housing wins top award.

Byline: SARAH SCOTT

A PROJECT to transform a volatile flashpoint has been crowned building project of the year.

The Parkside development on North Belfast's Limestone Road took the top accolade at this year's Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Northern Ireland Awards.

The PS3.8million scheme, providing 37 high-quality sustainable homes, won the regeneration and residential categories at a gala dinner in Holywood, Co Down, before claiming the overall project of the year title.

The judges said Parkside was: "An innovative social housing project that has achieved an impressive transformation of one of the most volatile flashpoints in North Belfast... a shining beacon example of what can be achieved in difficult circumstances."
