The UDIA NSW Crown Group Awards for Excellence highlight innovation, sustainability, industry leadership, and excellence in urban development across NSW and the ACT and are an important platform to demonstrate our industry’s commitment to creating liveable, affordable, and connected smart cities to the wider community.
We are proud to have provided our services on numerous projects including Rhodes Central, The Pemulwuy Project, and BLUE at Lavender Bay, which have been recognised in this year’s awards and would like to congratulate our clients on their outstanding achievements.
Rhodes Central is a masterplanned precinct set to rivatilise the area from an industrial peninsular, into a thriving residential community. This monumentally designed precinct will offer a dynamic urban village lifestyle with captivating far-reaching views.
Stage 1 of the development includes a 39-storey and 25-storey tower comprising 548 apartments above a 12,000 sqm shopping centre. The 39-storey tower will feature a distinctive golden heliostat atop, establishing itself as a landmark for Rhodes in the Sydney skyline. To complement these towers, the proposed following stage of the development will include another three towers and a $70 million community centre.
We were engaged by Billbergia for the provision of civil engineering design services for the public domain works, including road and footpath reconstruction and intersection improvements, associated with the Rhodes Central Precinct development.
