PRESTIGIOUS WINS FOR CYGNIA COVE
WATERFORD is now home to the best residential development in Australia, with Cygnia Cove estate taking home several gongs at the 2015 Urban Development Industry of Australia National Awards for Excellence.
The Richard Noble project won the top award for Residential Development and received the nod for the prestigious Environmental Excellence award in Sydney on March 19.
“We are exceptionally proud of what’s been achieved at Cygnia Cove,” Richard Noble managing director Alex Gregg said.
“We have transformed what was a degraded piece of land on the banks of the Canning River into a very beautiful and connected community for around 200 households, effectively providing a lasting environmental and cultural legacy for the whole community to enjoy.”
The UDIA judges said the development tackled many challenges to result in a quality residential estate established on a difficult but highly desirable site.
“The approval process was complicated with heritage, environmental and cultural issues – resolution of these challenges over 13 years was testament to the professionalism and patience of the developer and consultant team,” they said.
The judges added carefully controlled design guidelines and preservation of key frontages to open space and established vegetation ensured all the allotments within the estate were sought after.
