Australia's premier developers and projects were recognised in 42 different categories at the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards, held at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne—marking the inauguration of the prestigious event in Australia.

The $1 billion mixed-use project AURA by Aqualand in North Sydney stood out as the most awarded project, receiving three development awards, including the Best Mixed-Use Development title, as well as three design awards for its architecture and interior design.

The 29-level building will home 386 apartments, comprising one, two, three, and four-bedroom units, including sub-penthouse and penthouses.

The apartments offer a seamless transition from open living spaces to inviting winter gardens or balconies, while some units feature a multi-functional room that can serve as an additional living area, an office, a bedroom, or an ideal guest room.

The interior designers at Richards Stanisich have thoughtfully curated three contemporary colour palettes for AURA residences – light, mid or dark. All palettes are very textural and evoke a sense of feeling from lightness to opulence.

AURA by Aqualand features a podium-level retail precinct with a curated shopping and dining destination, including a providore, bakery, café and wine bar, an all-day diner and a contemporary Japanese restaurant.  Other resort-style facilities include a lifestyle concierge, pool, gym, room, sky deck, private dining rooms, and barbecue space for year-round al fresco entertaining.
