Royal Shores, Ermington was last night announced as the winner for Best Urban Renewal Development in this year’s Urban Taskforce’s Development Excellence Awards.
The award-winning urban renewal project is a joint venture between Sekisui House and PAYCE.
The waterfront residential complex, comprising nine buildings and 632 apartments, features a variety of connected community facilities, including a bespoke playground, picnic shelters and landscaped foreshore cycle and walkways. The layout of each of the buildings was organised around a central landscaped courtyard to maximise natural light, cross-ventilation and privacy.
The development, adjacent to the 27 hectare George Kendall Riverside Park and Melrose Park, offers extensive foreshore improvements that were completed as part of the development. They included a new playground, upgraded footpaths and pedestrian linkages to the waterfront, new public artworks and improved cycle and walkways.
PAYCE and Sekisui House Australia were proud to accept the award on behalf of the project team that included leading architectural firm, HDR | Rice Daubney, interior architect Turner, construction company DASCO Australia and Project Managers, M Projects.
