The Hilton Surfers Paradise Hotel and Residences has been named Australia’s best tourism and leisure development at the 2013 Property Council of Australia/Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Awards.
Brookfield Multiplex was presented with the Ryan Lawyers Award for Best Tourism and Leisure Development for an exceptional landmark that proved a very challenging project.
Hilton Surfers Paradise Hotel and Residences is well-deserving of national recognition for its innovative design and clever construction solutions, chief executive of the Property Council of Australia Peter Verwer says.
“After the original developer ran into financial difficulties, developer Brookfield Multiplex and financier ANZ worked together to save the project. Brookfield Multiplex overcame the financial, legal, technical and delivery hurdles that had stalled the project,” Mr Verwer says. “The final product is the first luxury hotel to be built on the Gold Coast in a decade, a unique residential resort, a spectacular contribution to the Surfers Paradise skyline and an economic engine for the local economy,” Mr Verwer added.
The Hilton Surfers Paradise Hotel and Residences comprises two striking and architecturally-distinctive high-rise towers with 410 apartments, a 5 star hotel and a high-end retail precinct.
The Garden House in Melbourne, a development comprising comprises 46 luxury apartments overlooking the world heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens, won The Village Building Company Award for Best Residential Development.
