Innovation & Excellence Awards

history of the awards

In 1982, as the property industry gathered to present its first annual awards for excellence and innovation, many of the buildings that now shape our skylines, that bring life to our cities and energy to local economies, were still distant dreams or sketches on the drawing board.

australian development of the year

Each year the Property Council’s national judging panel awards an Australian Development of the Year winner. Some of Australia’s most iconic developments have been awarded throughout the years.
