Urban Taskforce CEO, Chris Johnson said, “2017 has been a vintage year for quality development across Australia and the best of the best is Lendlease’s Barangaroo South.

“Our awards specifically recognise the risk developers take to realise major projects and Barangaroo South has battled planning delays, campaigns against it, uncertain economic times, yet it has triumphed as the most significant addition to Sydney’s global economic status while being an incredibly vital people space loved by Sydneysiders.

“Barangaroo South has created a successful, dynamic precinct that lifts Sydney’s position as a global city.”

Lendlease’s Managing Director, Barangaroo South, Rob Deck said, “Barangaroo South has become a place that people want to be, and we could not be prouder.”

The former container wharf has been transformed by some of the world’s best architects into a vibrant new waterfront financial district, with a mix of world class sustainable office space, premium residential buildings, as well as vibrant shopping, dining, hotel, hospitality and public spaces. The precinct is Sydney’s largest urban renewal project since the 2000 Olympics. 

The Urban Taskforce’s awards acknowledge development projects that achieve the best outcomes and recognise the crucial role of the developer in making a new development an outstanding success.
