Gravity Co wins Coliving 'Operator of the Year' Award
Gravity Co Awarded Coliving Awards Highest Accolade
Gravity Co, the UK based co-living & PRS brand focused on community, flexibility, wellbeing and professional growth has won the Operator of the Year Award in the 2022 Coliving Awards.
Recognised and entered by brands, institutions and individuals working both within and with the coliving industry globally, these awards have been created to ‘give visibility to the most thought-provoking and innovative approaches in the coliving sector’.
With over 70 entrants to the awards this year alone, with projects coming from countries including Australia, the Philippines, Denmark and Spain, covering 15 categories, each entry was judged in an initial first stage process with a handful from each category moving forward to become 2022 finalists.
Set to a partial public vote (worth 35%) and the remaining percentage weighting decided by a judge or judging panel, each project was carefully analysed and considered against a specified, strict criteria with the winners announced at the global ceremony, this year held in Katowice, Poland.
Of the 15 categories, the Operator of the Year Award is without question one of, if not the most sought after. Gravity Co this year won this category through the submission of its project ‘Community at Heart’, an in-depth presentation that focuses on its dedication and achievements to date in creating a unique coliving experience that offers modern, adaptable living environments with one principal feature at the core. Community.
Focusing on Gravity Co’s four key pillars of community (professional growth, meaningful engagement, personal wellbeing, and unconventional design), Gravity have been able to effectively demonstrate how it has created an in-demand, fluid member-focussed living experience that continues to grow in popularity as the brand scales.
Riccardo Tessaro, Co-Founder and CEO of Gravity says 'We’re absolutely thrilled to be announced Coliving Operator of the Year for 2022 and would like to thank everyone who voted for us and to the judges for selecting our entry. Gravity had a hugely successful start to the year with the launch of our fifth and newest property in Reading, adding over 100 new members to our community in the second most important city in the UK for innovation and technology companies, a market the Gravity brand is strongly appealing to. As we move further into 2022 and into next year, we plan to grow this community even further. Not just in the UK, but also internationally with properties in Spain, France and Italy now in our pipeline'.
Susanna Rock, Co-Founder and CIO of Gravity continues 'This award is important to us as it has allowed us to share with the coliving community what we do and how we do it. Entering the awards was a real team effort and we’re all massively proud, not just because we won best Operator of the Year, but also proud of what we do at Gravity and the amazing community we have created’.
