West Village, a mixed-use masterplanned community in West End, Brisbane was named Winner for Excellence in Marketing. The marketing strategy has thoughtfully paid homage to the historic Peters Ice Cream Factory as the centrepiece of this development. The campaign has included highly successful community events such as the Brisbane Ice Cream Festival, a creative collaboration with artists David and Yuge Bromley of Bromley and Co, and a host of initiatives for locals and the community as a whole.

Connor, jointly developed by Sekisui House and Frasers Property Australia was awarded Development of the Year in High Density Residential. Connor, part of the $2 billion Central Park community in Sydney, was up against some outstanding projects but in the end its elegant design, eco-friendly features, and its position as the architectural gateway to Central Park set it apart. Designed by Smart Design Studio, Connor instantly resonated with the market and all 178 apartments were sold prior to construction beginning.
