This week UDIA WA released the Awards for Excellence 2021 Nominated Projects booklet, which is a compilation of the incredible projects that have been entered into UDIA WA’s prestigious awards program this year.

Each year the UDIA WA Awards for Excellence program recognises the best projects from around Western Australia and, in doing so, we provide a handy guide for homebuyers who are looking to select the ideal location for their next home.

The awards program is widely regarded as the pinnacle for the urban development industry in terms of achievement in community creation, innovation and sustainability, with award winners and finalists representing the very best urban development projects delivered within WA.

The awards program is split into a variety of categories, with each category highlighting a different aspect of the market, ensuring we provide a comprehensive overview of available options for buyers, from diverse housing options offered by medium and higher-density projects, through to more traditional land estates in new areas.

In addition to the individual category awards, there is the added carrot of awarding the Russel Perry Award for Urban Development Excellence, which is presented to the best of the best each year, with the judges handing this prestigious award to the best overall project.

During the 2020 awards, the Russel Perry Award for Urban Development Excellence was presented to the Amberton Beach coastal precinct by Stockland, located in Perth’s burgeoning northern corridor. This project received the award due to the perseverance of the developer to provide the best possible result for the consumer by overcoming the various challenges presented by regulatory hurdles.

In presenting the award, the judges described the project as a jewel in the crown of the northern coastal strip, with the developer going to great lengths to deliver a community infrastructure project that will be popular with residents and visitors alike and provides access to a beautiful section of WA’s pristine coastline.

This year’s entrants have once again raised the bar in terms of quality, and we look forward to celebrating the winners and finalists in less than two months at our UDIA WA Awards for Excellence 2021 Gala Dinner. Following the night, we will release our highly coveted winners supplement, which is a perfect compilation of the best in the business this year.
