The Silo Point luxury condominium project in Locust Point has been named the best high-rise development in the Americas by the International Property Awards. The awards recognize residential and commercial developments across the globe in categories of development, design, architecture and marketing. Silo Point, a former grain elevator redeveloped by Turner Development Group, competed with entries from the U.S., South America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Panama, Canada, Belize and Bermuda and was chosen as best overall in high-rise development. Entries were judged by a panel of 52 international professionals. Patrick Turner, president of Turner Development, said he attributes much of his project's success to the uniqueness and design of the 24-story tower. Silo Point has 228 units, a lounge, parking and ground-level retail. So far, 96 condos have sold.
