PTW is honoured to share that Eighty Eight by JQZ was awarded Development of the Year at the Urban Taskforce Development Excellence Awards by Urban Taskforce Australia on the 27 July 2023. Thank you so much for the opportunity for PTW Architects to be part of this amazing project and great to also work with the wonderful consultant team including Urbis.
Congratulations to JQZ and all involved for this national award for excellence – so rewarding to bring alive such a vibrant mixed use project which has transformed the heart of St Leonards with three towers, a park and public library.
The award was presented by keynote speaker, the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces, the Hon, Paul Scully MP.
"Eighty Eight by JQZ is the perfect example of development with density and a mixture of uses right next to a railway station. The two residential towers have different expressions by architects PTW while the Commercial tower also has its own character. The buildings overlook a new park funded by the project and the three levels of retail and the library serve residents well. A great development."
