East Sydney:

Winning the 2015 Urban Development Institute of Australia's Award, East Village was voted Best Retail and Commercial Development in NSW and the ACT.

Picking up its third major industry award in less than a month, The East Village project developed by PAYCE at Victoria Park, Zetland continues to receive widespread praise and recognition.

East Village declared winner by UDIA Judges in the Best Retail and Commercial Development category at the recent UDIA (NSW/ACT) Industry Awards in Sydney.

East Village satisfying all the requirements of a successful residential, retail and commercial development.

The latest award for the project followed immediately after winning the top award in the Urban Taskforce Awards for Development of the Year and best project in the Architecture-Residential-Constructed category at the recent Sydney Design Awards.

The East Village Sky Park is one of the largest of its type in the Southern Hemisphere. East Village offers residents within the complex of premium quality residences a 6,500 square metre central Sky Park, which boasts barbeque areas, shade booths and a communal garden in which to enjoy and share with neighbours. The East Village residential, retail and commercial precinct combines leading edge apartments and a unique urban marketplace where the range of shopping and eating options draws patrons from all over Sydney.

The East Village Development - The UDIA judging panel comments.

"East Village challenges the way we perceive zoning laws in Australia," concluded the UDIA judging panel, "and we are hopeful that it will act as a precursor on how to deliver further retail developments that include light industrial and commercial components."

"The development addresses a crucial need in the Victoria Park neighbourhood for a range of goods and services that are user-friendly, environmentally sustainable and design responsive, we conclude that East Village delivers on all fronts."

The UDIA (NSW) judging panel remarked that it was very impressed with the East Village retail and commercial component, concluding that "East Villages bold, dynamic, well-executed and forward thinking approach successfully integrates retail, food and beverage, community uses as well as light industrial uses into a rich tapestry of horizontality and verticality that has made East Village a winning entry".

Brian Boyd – we are very proud of our very talented and creative team...

"The project had been a fine example of team effort in delivering something truly special to residents and the community," stated PAYCE's Managing Director, Brian Boyd.

"We had a wonderful team of highly talented creative individuals working on the project, including our design partners, TURNER Architects, Koichi Takada Interior Architects and HASSELL, along with construction company, Dasco Australia Pty Ltd and our own PAYCE personnel," said Brian Boyd.

"We are all so immensely proud of what has been achieved, everyone associated with the project is completely thrilled with the acclaim East Village continues to receive," he said.

Dominic Sullivan – East Village is a one of a kind development...

"The most recent award adds to a growing list of awards the project has received from industry peers, ranging from design excellence, mixed-use architecture, innovation and sustainability to environmental initiatives," Mr Sullivan said.

Attended by more than 900 industry representatives, the award was presented at a gala dinner in Sydney. This qualifies East Village for consideration in the upcoming UDIA NSW and ACT President's Award to be announced on 2 September. Select State winners will also be entered into the UDIA National Awards for Excellence determined at the Institute's National Congress in Adelaide next year.

PAYCE's General Manager, Dominic Sullivan said the retail component of East Village is a truly a unique and colourful retail experience inspired by some of the leading urban global marketplaces found around the world.

"Our focus at PAYCE is on building sustainable communities that thrive in well-designed urban precincts and East Village is a perfect example of a lively, sustainable community hub that provides an exciting place for residents to live, work and play, all within a friendly village atmosphere," he said.
