Outstanding project development team truly came to the fore – Dominic Sulivan

Mr Sullivan said he would also like to acknowledge the project team that developed this outstanding project. “They include project managers JAPM, architects and interior designers, Robertson + Marks, landscape architects, Turf Design, construction company, Dasco Australia and our own staff.”

Mr Sullivan said Harts Landing was a unique opportunity to create an integrated housing model that ticked all the boxes for affordability and walkability, being close to jobs, transport, shopping and recreational amenities.

Shining the light on Sydney`s social housing needs

“The development addressed the need for more affordable and social housing in Western Sydney and provides accommodation for more than 500 people,” said Dominc Sullivan.

“The modern apartments are of open plan design with light-filled spaces and all finishes throughout the three buildings are of the same high quality, with no difference between the affordable, social and private apartments.

“In addition, all residents have access to the communal spaces that feature barbeques and seating in landscaped gardens,” noted Mr Sullivan.

The Urban Taskforce Excellence Award was the third major award for Harts Landing this month, having recently taken out two Silver Awards at the Sydney Design Awards for architecture and graphic design.
