Prosper Dembedza Herald Correspondent
WEST PROPERTIES chief executive Mr Kenneth Sharpe last Friday scooped the leader in Real Estate of the year 2021 platinum award in the just ended Megafest National Awards ceremony held in Harare.
Sharpe was recently awarded the Forbes Best of Africa Award’s Innovative CEO of the Year Award to become the first Zimbabwean businessman to be conferred with such an award.
In her speech after receiving the award on Mr Sharpe’s behalf, his wife and business partner Joanna said West Properties dedicated the award to its stakeholders, customers, partners, employees, suppliers, regulators and all hardworking Zimbabweans who continue to challenge them to do better.
“As West Properties, we are committed to providing both luxurious and affordable housing units,” she said.
“All our unique projects are in areas of high access and opportunity, with proximity to amenities.”
Mrs Sharpe said the company had gone out of its way to ensure that all projects were constructed with utmost regard to architectural excellence, world class construction quality and aesthetics, combined with their zealous commitment to timely delivery and innovation.
“For the past 14 years, Sharpe has revolutionised Zimbabwe’s real estate and property landscape in a big way,” she said.
“Through his company, West Properties, he has acquired sizeable land banks across the country on which he is spearheading some of the country’s most eye-catching housing developments, especially in the northern side of the capital city, Harare.”
Mrs Sharpe said for many who have followed West Properties’ exceptional projects and products on the property development scene, particularly Pomona City, the first Zimbabwean housing development to adopt an innovative leasehold concept, the string of awards coming Mr Sharpe’s way have not come as surprises.
“We want our high quality prestigious properties to dominate the skylines of many urban centres in Zimbabwe,” she said. “We want to make a difference in the overall social-economic growth of the country.”
