A Victorian-based property developer has won two prestigious UDIA VIC 2014 Awards for urban renewal and high density development.
The annual UDIA Awards acknowledge developers for their standout commitment to excellence in development.
Little Projects’ Tip Top Brunswick East won the 2014 UDIA VIC Urban Renewal Award for the redevelopment of the former Tip Top Bakery site into a master planned lifestyle precinct of six unique buildings.
The company conceived the $215 million rejuvenation plans for Tip Top Brunswick East located between Edward and Weston Streets, with a strong commitment to maintain and celebrate the site’s iconic history
Michael Fox, Managing Director of Little Projects, explained that since launching the development in 2009, the team worked closely with project architects ROTHELOWMAN to ensure the site’s striking heritage was maintained.
“We are honoured by this achievement as it recognises our efforts to rejuvenate one of Melbourne’s heritage icons for residents and the broader community to enjoy,” Mr Fox said.
Little Projects’ ILK South Yarra was the joint winner of the High Density Development Award.
Designed by leading architectural practice, Cox Architecture, ILK delivered a broad selection of one-bedroom and two bedroom apartments with luxurious penthouses with views of Melbourne’s city skyline, the bay and beyond.
Mr Fox said the project had been one of the most successful for the developer, with the award proving it set the bar for quality multi-residential living.
The Tip Top redevelopment also won the Australian Property Institute 2014 Heritage Property Awardearlier this year and has been nominated as a finalist in the National UDIA Awards to be held in 2015.
