East Sydney:

Landmark PAYCE development East Village took out the prestigious 2015 NSW Urban Taskforce Development of the Year Award at the Excellence Awards held last night in Sydney.

PAYCE General Manager, Dominic Sullivan said it was a big thrill for PAYCE to again win the award.

"This is a wonderful acknowledgement for everyone who worked on a project, of which we are so very proud," he said.

The meticulously planned project was the culmination and work of a carefully selected team that travelled the globe to gain inspiration from the world's most vibrant and exciting urban developments.

The judges noted that the Victoria Park project, which is just three kilometres from the CBD, was a standout winner.

After accepting the award last night, PAYCE General Manager Dominic Sullivan said the project team pivotal in delivering East Village included Turner Architects, Koichi Takada Interior Architects, Iconic Project Management and builder Dasco Australia.

"This world-class team has delivered more than bricks and mortar; they have delivered a thriving, living place catering for a rich diversity of people and retailers."

"This accolade acknowledges development projects that tick all the boxes, great residential living, but also a way of life with entertainment and services on the doorstep."

"We are also pleased to see that there is a great sense of community already developing at East Village.

"We always wanted to create a great village and thanks to the hard work and professionalism of so many people that's what we have achieved."

The East Village concept - Brian Boyd.

"We think East Village is one of a kind, it was a great opportunity for us to develop the site and we are pleased with what has been achieved.

"This project fundamentally delivers not only on a vision for this site, but the broader Victoria Park precinct.

"It not just a development, with the site's great location and transport links we have created a modern, convenient and enjoyable lifestyle," he said.

The judges emphasised the benefits of East Village, being a truly unique offering of 206 low-rise apartments surrounding a private 6,500sqm Sky Park.

Residents also enjoy access to a globally inspired urban marketplace and eat street consisting of cafés, restaurants, fresh food and boutique stores, along with a Virgin Active gym, Audi Service centre, commercial office suites and Montessori Academy.
