Heritage Lanes awarded Project of the Year at UDIA Queensland awards

Heritage Lanes at 80 Ann Street has received a suite of accolades at the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Queensland awards ceremony.

Launched in 1994, the UDIA’s Queensland Awards of Excellence program was created to recognise excellence and innovation in the field of development within the state. Today, it is one of Queensland’s most respected and highly regarded industry awards programs. 

Heritage Lanes at 80 Ann Street received 2023 Project of the Year award as well as taking out the top honour for three other awards categories, including Sustainability, Urban Renewal, and Retail, Commercial and Industrial.

“It’s an honour to be selected for Project of the Year by our peers within the industry,” says Heritage Lanes project leader David Lee. “In its design, we strived to balance form and function, creating a building that is not only aesthetically vibrant, but highly responsive, intuitive and efficient.”

Project landscape architects ASPECT Studio said they were “delighted” to see the project recognised across four awards. “It’s a fantastic result and we extend our congratulations to everyone who worked on the project and all our collaborators including Mirvac and Woods Bagot,” a spokesperson for ASPECT said.

Winners were announced at an awards ceremony held on 3 November, attended by nearly 700 institute members and guests.

Successful projects were selected following an extensive judging process by an independent panel of professional industry members, with projects recognised across 24 categories, from Bangara to Brisbane. The jury praised this year’s entrants as demonstrating “innovation, resilience, and dedication” in the delivery of projects across the state.

“The program is unapologetically rigorous, taking eight months from launch through to the completion of judging,” a spokesperson for UDIA said. “Since the inception of the Awards, our judges have visited every site in person and reviewed the accompanying written submission. This rigorous process recognises the efforts of entrants as well as ensures a thorough assessment of the field.”
