Penrith’s high calibre developments recognised for excellence

Wednesday, 1 December 2021

Penrith’s reputation for superb liveability has been given a boost with the acknowledgement of the excellent standard of residential development taking place in the City.

Several developments in Penrith have been recognised by the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) NSW’s 2021 Awards for Excellence, signalling the high-quality developments in the City.

Four projects in Penrith are among the finalists in three award categories which seek to highlight excellence in urban development across NSW and the ACT. The number of finalists from Penrith makes it one of the top 10 most recognised local government areas.

Penrith City Council’s General Manager, Warwick Winn, highlighted the level of interest in the City as it undergoes significant transformation.

“We are seeing an unprecedented level of investment in our City currently, from infrastructure projects such as the Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport, to city-shaping initiatives like the creation of City Park or the redevelopment of Regatta Park,” Mr Winn said.

“It is pleasing to see that Penrith is also attracting high calibre developments to meet the housing needs of our growing population.”

Council is committed to providing world class opportunities and facilities to the community, so Penrith continues to be an attractive place to live, work, and visit.

“We want the best for our community and seeing projects in Penrith recognised for excellence tells me that our aspirations as a Council to achieve the best is being delivered,” Mr Winn said.

The Royce by Tulich and Calderflower has been nominated in the Retirement Living category. This award focuses on developments that put the needs of retirees at the forefront.

East Side Quarter, by CABE and Astina Group, and The Henry, by Urban Property Group, have both been selected as finalists in the medium-density development category.

The Lumina residential development located within the Thornton Estate is among the finalists in the high-density development category.

The winners of the 2021 UDIA NSW Awards for Excellence will be announced on Thursday 2 December 2021, and Council wishes all nominees the best of luck.
