Ellenbrook in Western Australia has been awarded the prestigious FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Award for 2015, as the best master-planned community in the world by the International Real Estate Federation.
The Federation is represented in over 60 countries with its annual FIABCI Awards recognising projects that best embody excellence in all the real estate developers involved in its creation.
The public-private joint venture between the West Australian Government’s Housing Authority and a LWP Property Group Investment Syndicate celebrated its 20th birthday this year and Managing Director Danny Murphy, said the award win recognised Ellenbrook’s innovations and long-term success.
“From the very start, Ellenbrook has been able to adapt and respond to changes in housing preferences, community, technology and lifestyles.
“Through its many innovations, particularly in the areas of housing, community development, urban design and environmental management, Ellenbrook has maintained a leadership role and delivered a series of firsts for the West Australian and Australian development industry,” Mr Murphy said.
A testament to its success, Ellenbrook stands as Australia’s most awarded urban development project, with the World Prix D’Excellence Award the ‘icing on the cake’, according to Mr Murphy.
“We have extremely proud of what we have achieved here at Ellenbrook.
“Our sustained commitment to delivering the founding project vision and objectives of a return to traditional neighbourhood planning; affordability; environmental sustainability; and community development has ensured we have created a great place to live, work and play,” Mr Murphy said.
The people of Ellenbrook agree, with Ellenbrook consistently one of Australia’s fastest selling residential estates over a 20 year period.
Ellenbrook will eventually be home to 35,000 residents and features a thriving town centre, an abundance of community facilities for all ages, 7 primary schools, 4 secondary schools, over 30 community groups and sporting clubs, 30km of walking trails, 10km of cycleways and almost 20 parks.
