Villawood Properties’ spectacular Montego Hills community at Kingsholme, Queensland has been named Australia’s Best Residential Development at the prestigious 2021 UDIA National Excellence Awards.
Montego Hills earlier took out the coveted 2020 Queensland UDIA Residential Subdivision Award.
The sell-out project’s recognition marks Villawood’s second national award, following the UDIA Masterplanning Excellence gong for its Alamanda community in Melbourne.
The win takes Villawood’s trophy-room tally to a grand total of 26 major awards across the areas of best residential, masterplanning, design, environment, landscape, community engagement, water and more.
Aquarevo was developed in partnership with South East Water, with innovative water and energy conserving initiatives that make it Australia’s most water and energy efficient residential community.
In 2019 it was awarded an Environmental Excellence award by the UDIA (Urban Development Institute of Australia).
Homes at Aquarevo save up to 70 per cent of water and 65 per cent of energy usage compared to current Australian averages. The savings are equivalent to around 24 Olympic-sized swimming pools of water or taking 300 cars off the road each year.
“Innovative projects like the Aquarevo development are key to putting people first by making our communities more liveable and sustainable for the future.”
The Hon Lisa Neville, Minister for Water
When residential communities are designed for active, healthy and socially connected living, everyone wins. In 2019 our boutique Delaray community in Clyde North was awarded ‘Best Residential Development’ in the UDIA’s Awards for Excellence.
Delaray features stunning wetlands, board walks, parklands, playgrounds and public art.
The jewel in the crown is the architecturally designed Club Delaray – the thriving central hub for residents.
This is the fourth time that a Villawood community with a Residents’ Club has taken out the top honours in its category.
