A multibillion-dollar mixed-use development, an innovative office project and a workplace made by merging two inner-city towers are among the winners of the Property Council’s 2023 Rider Levett Bucknall State and Territory Development of the Year awards.

The awards are the runway to the Property Council’s National Innovation and Excellence Awards, which will be unveiled at a gala in Sydney later this year. The program highlights ground-breaking innovations and exceptional leadership in Australia’s property industry.

Each state and territory winner is now eligible to take out the night’s biggest prize – the Australian Development of the Year. 

From 112 eligible finalists, the state and territory winners included: 

Brookfield Place Sydney

The New South Wales Development of the Year was awarded to Brookfield Place Sydney.  This “transformational” mixed-use development from Brookfield Properties preserved the site’s heritage while delivering a modern transport hub. It also amalgamated five individual properties into a commercial and retail space.

405 Bourke Street

At 32 levels and 66,000 square metres, the cantilevered 405 Bourke Street won in Victoria. The vertical commercial campus and retail laneway connects Bourke and Little Collins Streets and exemplifies “cutting-edge” workplace design from developers Brookfield Properties, according to the Property Council.

BHP Adelaide

BHP Adelaide’s workplace was named South Australia’s Development of the Year for its family-friendly focus and accessibility.

Midtown Centre

In Queensland, AsheMorgan and DMC Projects’ revitalisation of two older buildings into the new Midtown Centre was named the state’s best. The Property Council calls it an “exemplar project” of how to repurpose existing underutilised assets into an innovative, relevant and contemporary workplace.

Walyalup Koort 

Sirona Urban’s Walyalup Koort in the bustling civic heart of Fremantle received the honours in Western Australia for “revitalising” a “once-declining” City Centre, says the Property Council.

The Tasman Hotel

From Citta Property Group, the Tasman Hotel in Parliament Square won in Tasmania for linking heritage buildings of various eras with bold contemporary additions.

RAAF Darwin Banksian House Refurbishment  

Banksian House is the commander’s residence at Royal Australian Air Force Base Darwin, designed by acclaimed architect Beni Burnett and built in 1941. Aurecon’s extensive restoration work brought the building up to modern standards while preserving original building fabrics.

Throsby Residential Community

“Quintessentially Canberran”, Suburban Land Agency’s Thorsby Residential Community won the award in ACT. Spanning approximately 106 hectares, it features 1100 dwellings, community facilities, and open spaces. 

Property Council of Australia CEO Mike Zorbas says the Innovation and Excellence awards celebrate the “pinnacle of property achievement”. 

‘They showcase the positive impact that Australia’s most innovative projects will have on the future of our cities,” Mr Zorbas said.
