Barangaroo takes top honours

Barangaroo South in Sydney has been named development of the year at the 2018 Property Council of Australia / Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Awards.

“Barangaroo South is a truly iconic international project which has recalibrated the way Australians think about precinct-scale urban renewal,” said Property Council chief executive Ken Morrison.

On completion in 2023, Barangaroo South will house 23,000 office workers, 2,000 residents, a six-star hotel and 80-plus cafés, bars, restaurants and retail outlets across more than half a million square metres of space.

The project also won WSP Award for Best Sustainable Development – New Buildings, and the Liberty Steel Award for Best Mixed Use Development. Lendlease’s workplace at Barangaroo was also the winner of the Eagle Lighting Australia Award for Best Workplace Project.

This year, 137 finalists competed for national recognition in 20 categories. A full list of winners is available online.
