Last Friday, 27 April 2018, the Tonsley Innovation District was awarded South Australia’s top property honour for what the Property Council of Australia described as “an approach which sets new standards for urban renewal”.
RLB’s South Australian Director, Giulio Altamura, noted, “The judges were impressed by the project’s commitment to low carbon and climate resilient infrastructure, technology and systems. These undoubtedly demonstrate innovation in urban design, governance and delivery models.”
The state award night is a prelude to the the national awards gala dinner being held at the ICC Sydney Convention Centre on Friday, 11 May 2018. Tonsley is a finalist in three national award categories:
- Best Mixed Use Development
- Development Innovation
- National Development of the Year
