Congratulations to Brookfield Place Sydney in New South Wales and SubStation No. 164 by Built in New South Wales who are in the running for the S4B Award for Best Heritage Development.

The award-winning BPS seamlessly integrates a railway concourse, new commercial offices, and retail with two significantly important heritage assets, Shell House and Beneficial House. It boasts one of the tallest heritage facades in the Southern Hemisphere. Brookfield Properties has set an impressive precedent for heritage-integrated cityscapes, showcasing development excellence.

SubStation No.164 is a rare development with complex challenges that left two heritage buildings dormant for decades. From adapting heritage buildings and overcoming a highly constrained site to delivering the design and engineering requirements of the cantilevered glass extension, and setting new sustainability benchmarks, SubStation No.164 demonstrates what ingenuity can achieve.

In collaboration with RLB since 1982, the prestigious awards have promoted excellence in design and innovation in the built environment. From 157 eligible finalists, the winners were selected by a high calibre judging panel made up of 14 property specialists and chaired by Adrian Harrington.

Winners will be announced at the 2023 Property Council of Australia / Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Awards, to be held at the ICC Sydney on Wednesday 23 August 2023.
