Willowdale takes home another prestigious industry prize for Best Masterplanned Community

29 May 2019

Stockland’s multi-award winning Willowdale community in Denham Court has been recognised as the Best Masterplanned Community in Australia at the Property Council of Australia Innovation & Excellence Awards.

Considered one of Australia's most prestigious property awards programs, the glamorous PCA event held at Sydney’s International Convention Centre on 17 May was a celebration of the industry’s best projects, people and companies.

This latest accolade for Willowdale is yet another industry nod for one of Stockland’s largest masterplanned residential communities in NSW.

Late last year Willowdale won the Masterplanned Communities award at the 2018 Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) NSW Awards for Excellence and also received the national 2018 Urban Taskforce Development Excellence Award for Masterplanned Community Development.

Richard Rhydderch, NSW General Manager of Residential Communities at Stockland, said his team was thrilled to receive such a coveted award.

“Willowdale is an exceptional masterplanned community that sets an extremely high benchmark for residential development, not just in New South Wales, but across Australia,” Mr Rhydderch said.

“We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved so far at Willowdale and the fact that it has been recognised by such a significant industry panel goes to show that Stockland is delivering something special for homebuyers in south western Sydney.”

Willowdale is now home to more than 4,000 people and is continuing to thrive as more housing opportunities are offered to the market.

The community has a range of affordable modern living options available including land lots, house and land packages, townhomes, completed homes and retirement living.

The convenient amenities available to Willowdale residents include a retail centre with a Coles supermarket and 12 speciality stores, three hectares of green space with playgrounds, walking and cycle tracks, plus a proposed primary school and Willowdale Community Place - a neighbourhood centre designed for residents’ playgroups, fitness sessions, various classes and DIY workshops.

The 350-hectare community also has an environmental stamp of approval with the internationally-recognised 6 Star Green Star – Communities rating for its world-leading design excellence, innovation and environmental stewardship as well as future economic prosperity and liveability.

Willowdale is located 15 kilometres from Liverpool, is close to major road links such as the M5 and M7 motorways for ease of access into Parramatta and Sydney Airport, and the community is a short, five-minute drive to the new Leppington Train Station.

Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport at Badgerys Creek, which is now under construction, will also be within easy reach of Willowdale once completed in 2026.
