Urban Property Group takes home two UDIA National Awards for Excellence 2024


Urban Property Group has taken home another two awards with its wins at last night’s 2024 the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s (UDIA) National Awards for Excellence at a Gala Dinner in Melbourne. These latest accolades come after first winning the state level UDIA New South Wales awards last year. Urban Property Group’s visionary CEO Patrick Elias received the Young Leaders’ Award and Navali, a premium mixed-use development in Penrith, was crowned the winner of Apartments (Mid-Rise), against the other states.  

These two award wins demonstrate not only Urban Property Group’s quality leadership, as well as quality projects, but also that quality and affordability do not need to be mutually exclusive, as well as the strength of the New South Wales property sector. Urban Property Group has long shown leadership in creating high-quality spaces, by providing buyers with 10-year Latent Defects Insurance in an Australian-first, being one of the first developers in Australia to receive an as-built BTI rating from KPMG Origins, an independent assessor of “trustworthy buildings,” as well as having received a New South Wales Government-endorsed iCIRT rating. 

Navali, a conveniently located Penrith 10-storey mixed-use development received top honours for Apartments (Mid-Rise). Consisting of 163 apartments, the development also includes 17 National Disability Insurance Scheme apartments and 10 affordable apartments, along with ground floor retail. Navali reached Practical Completion in 2022 and provides high-quality, yet affordable apartments to help ease the housing crisis. Resident facilities include a rooftop garden, communal space, kitchen, garden, and children’s play areas. In addition to Navali’s latest award win, it was also crowned as the winner of the 2022 Urban Taskforce Mid-Rise Development Award. 

Patrick Elias, CEO of Urban Property Group, was crowned as the winner of the Young Leaders’ Award in recognition of his visionary thinking, strategic mindset and focus on innovation. Patrick was also acknowledged for putting his team first, and for fostering a culture of collaboration and mutual respect. 

Patrick Elias, Chief Executive Officer of Urban Property Group said, “It’s an incredible honour for Urban Property Group to have taken home two national UDIA awards on top of our state wins, for both my Young Leaders’ Award and for Apartments (Mid-Rise) for our Penrith development Navali. I’m truly grateful for this recognition and could not be prouder of what our team has achieved.” 

“These awards are also reminders of how vital our work is in creating high-quality, yet affordable homes to assist with tackling the housing challenges we face in Australia. We are not just building properties, we are creating homes where people can thrive. In today’s housing crisis, that mission feels more important than ever. Urban Property Group looks forward to creating more high-quality, yet affordable homes in Penrith.”
