The Urban Taskforce has unveiled its Development Excellence Awards 2018 winners over a range of categories across the property spectrum. Amongst the various winners was a project designed by Bureau of Urban Architecture - Eighty Eight Kensington.
Urban Taskforce CEO Chris Johnson said “Eighty Eight Kensington… are well mannered apartments that provide the street edge of Anzac Parade with more height on the corner. The project won the Medium Rise City Apartments Development award. The jury saw this as an excellent example of medium rise apartments in an urban setting.”
“Eighty Eight” Kensington is a unique residential experience, unsurpassed in today’s apartment scene. Reminiscent of five-star resort style living, ‘Eighty Eight’ – Kensington is set above lush landscaped gardens, featuring a lap pool, innovative fitness area, BBQ and spa facilities.
Urban Taskforce Development Excellence Awards jury chair and NSW Government Architect, Peter Poulet said “We were very impressed with the quality of apartments being developed around Australia. There seems to be a good balance between design quality and affordability as well as a good focus on the public realm and the spaces between buildings. As our cities move to more apartments as populations grow we will need to learn from the winning examples in this year’s Urban Taskforce awards.”
The jury for the 2018 Urban Taskforce awards was Peter Poulet, NSW Government Architect; Carolyn Cummins, journalist with the Sydney Morning Herald; John Wynne of Urbis; John Ferrarin, Quantity Surveyor and David Tanevski, Secretary Treasurer of the Urban Taskforce.
