Quotes from Rob Deck, Managing Director, Barangaroo South

“We are thrilled to receive this award which is widely considered to be the top property honour in NSW. Lendlease vision is to create the best places. This award is recognition of the work of thousands of people who have brought this vision to life in this high quality, globally attractive, mixed use precinct that is literally changing the face of Sydney and setting new global benchmarks in sustainable living.

“Barangaroo South has also provided a rare opportunity to explore and innovate with new products, systems and methodologies. This includes important initiatives such as International House, Sydney, currently the largest engineered timber commercial building in the world, and the innovative Barangaroo Skills Exchange (BSX) in which we partnered with TAFE Enterprise to help more than 10,000 workers gain more than 20,000 accredited training outcomes in their workplace.

“We believe Barangaroo is a model for how Government and the private sector can work together to deliver large-scale urban regeneration projects that maximise the development outcomes for the community and future generations.
