The third edition of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Australia) announced today the continent’s finest examples of residential property development and design during an inaugural gala event and awards ceremony that aired over AsiaPropertyAwards.com and partner channels YouTube, Facebook and LinkedIn.

The real estate industry’s highest accolades and citations were presented to five companies and nine projects, including praiseworthy apartment, townhouse and housing developments in New South Wales, Victoria, and Western Australia.

The 3rd PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Australia) marked the first presentation of the prestigious Best Boutique Developer title. The award was presented to Balfour Group.

The independent panel of judges said: “Balfour Group’s impeccably designed and forward-thinking projects provide a glimpse into the future of residential development in Australia. Their residences impress with classy interiors, generous spaces, and top-of-the-line health and wellness automation features, raising the bar high in the luxury and sustainable housing segment.”

Balfour Group also gained another award, Best Apartment Development (Victoria), for One Adams Street South Yarra 3141.
