Rushbond plc wins a prestigious Pro Yorkshire Award

                                                  
Bank Leumi UK is delighted to announce that client firm Rushbond plc has won a prestigious Pro Yorkshire Award from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

These awards recognise outstanding projects from property professionals across Yorkshire and Humber. The 2015 residential award has been presented to Rushbond for Bootham Green in York -a development of 38 individually-designed, ecologically-friendly homes.

Created with financing support from Bank Leumi UK (BLUK), it was delivered in partnership with Advent Developments. All homes sold on completion in 2014.

BLUK provided supporting finance through its Northern Office. Established to offer the Bank’s first-class boutique banking services specifically to high-calibre clients in the North, this office has particular expertise in working with local property development projects.

“We have enjoyed a very successful relationship with Rushbond for the past seven years,” said Steve Cooper, Northern Office Regional Manager. “We have very much played our part in several of their successful developments during that time.

“I’m delighted to see them being recognised for their work at Bootham Green. It’s a unique project that required exactly the kind of bespoke banking and finance services we specialise in. I’d like to offer our very sincere congratulations to Rushbond on this well-deserved award.”

Jonathan Maud, Managing Director of Rushbond, commented: “Our ambition, with our partners, was to give a much-loved historic building a new lease of life and future and together with the new contemporary-designed homes, Bootham Green now provides a wonderful place to live in a great location and City. The support of Bank Leumi has been fundamental to the success of this venture and we were delighted to continue our strong and close working relationship with the Bank and its team, a relationship which we are furthering through new and exciting projects throughout the region’.
