We are thrilled to announce that on Friday night Wivenhoe Village was crowned winner of the prestigious Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Award for Excellence in Retirement Living 2018. The UDIA awards are designed to highlight innovation, sustainability, industry leadership and excellence in urban development across NSW and the ACT. This is the second award that Wivenhoe Village has been honoured to receive this year. In May, Wivenhoe Village was recognised as the best retirement village nationally by the Property Council of Australia.
Upon accepting this award, James Robinson, Director of Mbark, the retirement village specialist company behind Wivenhoe Village, said, “We are a small family company who strives to develop retirement communities that we are proud of. I’d like to acknowledge our really dedicated team and the opportunity that we have had to develop a fantastic site in the South West of Sydney. It is an honour to receive this award, in a pool of such strong finalists and nominees.
I would like to thank our partners, the Sisters of the Good Samaritan for trusting us with a site that has amazing historic and fantastic environmental values, that our residents at Wivenhoe can share with the surrounding communities.”
