OSK Property’s Melbourne Square gains double nomination for prestigious International Property Awards

OSK Property’s Melbourne Square gains double nomination for prestigious International Property Awards

OSK Property’s six-tower development is likely to draw attention to Southbank, having been nominated in two categories for the acclaimed 2019/20 International Property Awards.

Although the development is still very much a construction site, that hasn't stopped Melbourne Square from submitting for best 'Mixed-use Development’ and ‘Residential High-Rise Architecture’.

Since the site is within an urban regeneration zone, OSK Property placed importance on creating a public-orientated precinct where residential property, childcare facilities, retail outlets and large outdoor spaces were accessible to all.

“We have done everything that we can to create the best public realm in Melbourne within our development, and it’s right in the heart of Southbank.”

- Tan Sri Ong Leong Huat, Chairman of OSK Property

Tan Sri Ong Leong Huat also mentioned that Cox Architecture was to be commended for creating buildings that will "enhance the beauty of Melbourne’s skyline".

The $2.8 billion development features a 3745m2 park, designed by renowned landscape architectural firm Taylor Cullity Lethlean (TCL). Noted as one of the largest architecturally significant green spaces in Southbank, the park highlights will include a European-inspired piazza, a cascading waterfall and an outdoor terrace.

"It will be an important destination, delivering benchmark sustainable urban design, and a place for people to live, work and play, with the park drawing people from across the city in. The brief was focused on creating an opportunity for residents of Melbourne Square but also local residents and the public in Southbank to engage with nature.” 

- Lisa Howard, TCL director

Stage one of the Melbourne Square development will introduce the park, a new Woolworths supermarket, childcare and retail, as well as two luxury apartment towers and is due for staggered completion from late 2019. 

Future stages will include a Hilton branded hotel, a commercial office tower and a further two residential towers, with further details expected to be released in coming months.

Finalists of the International Property Awards will be announced in Bangkok this May and will be invited to compete for global recognition. Previous winners include the likes of London’s landmark Kings Cross Gasworks apartments, the Royal Academy of Music and Heathrow Airport.
