A BRIGHOUSE mill conversion has been hailed as one of the UK's most successful developments.
The £17m Millroyd Island scheme has won the Transformation Of The Year Award in the Yorkshire Residential Property Awards.
And Nick Kenyon, project manager for the canalside scheme, collected a Supreme Pride in the Job award from BBC Breakfast presenter Natasha Kaplinsky at a ceremony in London.
The award was made by the National Housebuilding Council to recognise Mr Kenyon's efforts on the scheme.
Developer Binks Vertical has transformed the disused mill into a complex with 129 flats and facilities, including a swimming pool and gym.
The flats are being sold by property agent Knight Frank.
Anne Haggas, of Knight Frank, said: "Millroyd Island is a deserving winner in both competitions because - in our experience - this is one of the best mill conversions in the North.
"The attention to detail in the restoration - plus the new facilities - have proved to be very helpful in selling the development."
The scheme gained national recognition when it became one of the fastest-selling developments in the country last year.
Knight Frank had sold 100 homes just four hours after they went on the market.
Five of the 15 penthouse flats have been sold, with those remaining priced at £236,950 to £249,950.
The sales shot Brighouse to the top of the property hotspot list nationwide.
Binks Vertical founder Richard Binks said: "Restoring these old buildings is so rewarding, especially in town centres, where our work contributes to the development of the town.
"Mill conversions have become our speciality and we are proud to be doing our bit in the regeneration of Yorkshire's historic old mill towns."
