LWP Property Group developments scoop two Awards at UDIA WA Awards for Excellence
LWP’s master-planned community Trinity at Alkimos, and the innovative housing product at Ellenbrook - on the first 80m2 green-title lots in Western Australia, have both been recognised at the 2018 UDIA WA Awards for Excellence on Saturday 15th September.
Launched in April 2018 at Ellenbrook, Verge is Western Australia’s first “micro lot” precinct, comprising 11 double-storey, free-standing houses, ten of which are built on 80m2 green-titled lots. Located in the Ellenbrook Town Centre, adjacent an existing park and close to shops and public transport, this precinct was prime for a new type of housing which reflects modern urban living.
The project is a result of meticulous planning between the Department of Communities, LWP Property Group and Now Living, operating under the primary motivation of providing affordable product diversity through innovation. The goal was to provide a terrace home on a green title lot for less than $300,000 without compromising livability or quality.
Ellenbrook, a Joint Venture between Department of Communities and an LWP Property Group Syndicate, has been at the forefront of product innovation since its inception in the early nineties. The EJV team, led by Megan Buckland Project Manager, initiated the Verge project, working with their consultants including Sharni Howe Architects, Roberts Day, and Cossill & Webley, Veris Australia and Plan E to design an innovation precinct.
Trinity at Alkimos meanwhile won the category of Residential Development, with consultants Gray Lewis, Sharni Howe Architects, GHD Group, Veris Australia, Plan E and Coterra Environment to also be recognised for their hard work on bringing this community to life.
Trinity at Alkimos was recognised for reflecting an urban, not suburban, residential lifestyle with a strong civic focus contained within three distinct villages, each with their own social fabric. Early provision of amenity, community engagement, developing in an environmentally sensitive manner and unique product diversity have all contributed to Trinity’s overall success.
LWP’s Managing Director, Mr Danny Murphy, said “the two awards are the outcome of outstanding contribution from our consultants and project team and with the micro lot product, working in close collaboration with the Department of Communities and NOW Living.”
