Peet’s Burns Beach recognised in top industry honours
Burns Beach has been named 2021’s best Residential Development at the prestigious Urban Development Institute of Australia’s (UDIA) Awards for Excellence.
The Awards, which were held on Saturday night, are regarded as the pinnacle for the urban development industry encompassing community creation, innovation and sustainability.
Peet’s award winning Burns Beach, located in Perth’s popular northern corridor and just 30 minutes from the CBD, has formed into an established community with enviable access to the beach – designed to provide residents with a first-class lifestyle.
Burns Beach was recognised for overcoming significant environmental challenges of creating an urban community within a sensitive, dunal landscape by working collaboratively with a wide variety of stakeholders – including extensive community engagement.
Leading property developer Peet had a clear design brief from the beginning, which was to create a vibrant seaside community that accommodated a passion for coastal living and deliver a premium coastal estate nestled amongst nature.
Peet Managing Director and CEO Brendon Gore said the award recognises the hard work of the team involved with the development of the project, contributing to the growth of the community.
“From day one, preserving the existing landscape was key to the design and we integrated the homes and local amenity into the natural environment. It was important that we considered the current and future demand for local infrastructure and amenity, all within the comfort of the community. Burns Beach continues to grow which we attribute to the strong community ethos, and modern coastal living,” said Mr Gore.
The project plans ensured that the estate had an overall stunning presentation, equipped with manicured streetscapes, parks, walkways and boardwalks, surrounded by natural bush - including a walkable environment with interconnected space and path networks, facilitating community interaction and a healthy lifestyle.
Burns Beach Estate has been carefully designed to facilitate panoramic views of the ocean, ensuring residents are connected to the coastline, as well having premium access to bushland.
This strategic design also includes Burns Beach Rocks, an emergent limestone reef, as a key visual focal point for the estate – with the design of the estate’s latter stages taking advantage of the view of the coast and extensive bushland, which can be accessed from several roads and public spaces.
Connectivity is a hallmark of the beachside estate, providing residents with a range of local amenities. Burns Beach is close to a selection of state and private schools, including the Burns Beach Primary School which will open to the community in 2022. Shopping centres and other facilities are also a quick drive away.
With 125 years’ experience, Peet is one of Australia’s leading property developers and Burns Beach is one of a number of Peet developments across the country.
