Pousada de Lisboa
Pousada de Lisboa was awarded with the National Award for Urban Rehabilitation (Prémio Nacional de Reabilitação Urbana), in the Best Tourist Use Intervention (Melhor Intervenção de Uso Turístico) category.
The National Award for Urban Rehabilitation (Prémio Nacional de Reabilitação Urbana - PNRU) is an annual initiative of Vida Imobiliária and Promevi and awards the urban interventions of greater value to society, in its multiple areas: the contribution to the cities qualification and impact in the community, the success measured by the market acceptance, the social impact and value and the ability to induce changes in the urban fabric.
This prestigious award is the result of a joint bid of Soares da Costa and Pestana Group, whose partnership was, once again, publicly recognized for its quality and public utility. One note to the fact that this was the first time that Soares da Costa applied for this award, associating itself directly with the Owner of the project.
PNRU has five categories, classified according to the use of the buildings (Residential, Services, Commercial, Turistic and Social Impact), plus a special award to the Best Intervention in the City of Lisbon and three special mentions - Best Reabilitation with less than 1000 m2, Best Restoration Intervention and Best Energy Efficiency Solution.
Pousada de Lisboa was selected among 15 candidates, in the category of Best Turistic Use Intervention.
Tourism is particularly important in the rehabilitation of city centers, attracting new audiences and more consumption, so all interventions with impact on touristic attractiveness of a city or region are widely valued by this prize.
