At the Herald's Property Awards for Scotland 2016 gala awards evening In Glasgow's Crowne Plaza, the Gourock Pierhead Redevelopment won the Best Townscape Regeneration Project. Riverside Inverclyde Chair Gerry McCarthy said:
"Winning the Townscape Regeneration award at this prestigious event was a real honour. Gourock was shortlisted with Aberdeen and Perth & Kinross so the win against these equally worthwhile projects made the night even more special . It was a great feeling for us to represent Gourock and Inverclyde at these awards along with Inverclyde council, RJ McLeod and our other partners. This recognition must extend to the residents and businesses of Gourock who demonstrated tremendous patience and support throughout the course of the project".
