Port Baku Tower 2 and Gran Plaza 2 win prestigious CREDAWARDs in China

Port Baku Tower 2 and Gran Plaza 2 were honoured with prestigious awards at the 10th CREDAward, an event celebrating excellence in global property design. Port Baku Tower 2 earned a Merit Award in the Mixed-use category, while Gran Plaza 2 received the Silver Award in the Urban Regeneration category.

Port Baku Tower 2, Baku, Azerbaijan (Mixed-use Architecture)

The architectural design for the 135,000m², office-led Port Baku Tower 2 was conceived as a sculptural completion of the wider Port Baku development. The new mixed-use tower serves as an evolution of the original Port Baku Tower 1 design, completed in 2011. It forms a "bookend" to the eastern aspect of Port Baku and creates a sense of enclosure in the central zone of the development.

The sculptural, curving façades and inclined upper levels create an elegant addition to the Baku skyline. Additionally, the angled foyer space at the base of the new tower, with its 16m-high ceiling, establishes a strong sense of arrival and an impressive entrance into the office building.

Gran Plaza 2, Majadahonda, Spain (Urban Regeneration)

Chapman Taylor has extended and reconfigured this beloved shopping centre, creating a cutting-edge renovation and extension project that has transformed it into a day-out destination for visiting families. The project includes extensive new indoor and outdoor areas and leisure attractions catering to modern shopping and relaxation preferences.

What once was a car park has been transformed into a landscaped park, evoking the atmosphere of a botanical garden with around one hundred different species of plants and trees. Attractions for families include water jets, a pirate ship play area, and climbing walls built to resemble natural rock formations. Restaurant terraces and seating areas are also available, with retractable sun protection.


Over the last ten years, the CREDAWARDS have received approximately 10,000 entries from design firms in 26 countries and regions. The awards highlight various projects, from urban regeneration and infrastructure developments to public facilities such as museums, libraries, and sports complexes. They also cover extensive commercial and office developments and residential areas and encompass both existing and conceptual designs.

Congratulations to all involved!
