Some of South East Queensland’s best developers scooped a number of prizes at the annual UDIA QLD awards last weekend.

The national ASX-listed developer Mirvac took out the best development in Queensland, with their Gainsborough Greens project winning the Project of the Year Award.

Gainsborough Greens, which also took home the Environmental Excellence award, is a masterplanned community in the Gold Coast’s Pimpama area.

“The project is a benchmark example of environmental rehabilitation, creating an outstanding backdrop for a master planned community,” the judges noted.

Gainsborough Greens has created a new habitat for koalas and an array of native fauna and birdlife species within 170 hectares of conservation area.

Aria Property Group, whose focus is sustainable developments in Brisbane, won five awards on the night, spread across their residential and commercial efforts in the Fish Lane Town Square precinct.
