Victorian projects vie for national property awards

Twenty-five outstanding Victorian projects and three future leaders are finalists in the prestigious national property awards.

The 2020 Property Council of Australia / Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Awards will see the Victorian finalists go up against 107 other projects from across the nation.

The awards program, now in its 38th year in partnership with RLB, showcases innovative projects, pioneering solutions and inspiring leadership in Australia’s property industry.

Best Office Development

Four Victorian office buildings are squaring off in the hotly-contested Best Office Development category: Lendlease’s One Melbourne Quarter, Target Australia Headquarters, T&G Building – Pembroke, and Walker Corporation’s Collins Square. RLB provided services on all four office buildings.

‘These four office projects illustrate how well-designed and executed office developments can transform a city,’ says RLB’s Director, Ewen McDonald.

‘The $3 billion Collins Square, the largest commercial office development in Australia, seamlessly integrates commercial office space with a retail podium over an entire city block, while the $2.9 billion Melbourne Quarter project features the city’s first-ever Sky Park,’ Ewen says.

‘Target’s new workplace at the $2 billion Williams Landing Town Centre will play a key role in the future of a dynamic and growing region of Victoria. And the extensive refurbishment of the historic T&G Building has created a thoughtfully-curated business community while maintaining the charm of one of Melbourne’s best-loved heritage buildings, Ewen adds.

Rider Levett Bucknall Australian Development of the Year award

All Victorian development finalists are in the running for the Victorian Development of the Year and the industry’s most coveted prize – the Rider Levett Bucknall Australian Development of the Year award.

Reward and Recognition

‘RLB has proudly co-hosted these awards since 1982. Over the last 38 years, the awards have become an important platform to recognise and reward the people and companies building great cities and communities,’ Ewen concludes.

Gala Dinner

National award winners will be announced at the 2020 Property Council of Australia / Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Awards Gala Dinner, to be held at the ICC Sydney Convention Centre on Friday 15 May 2020. Tickets are now on sale.
