From Plan to Place commendation for Alexander Urbanism, Development Victoria and Plus Architecture

"The project demonstrates innovation in industrial site planning, and serves as an example for other landowners looking to regenerate land for industrial land use. The panel visited the park and noted that there was continuity in certain design elements, particularly fencing and landscaping that provided an overall positive contribution. The built form outcomes were also noted, having regard to the effectiveness of urban design controls. It was recognised that the planning process has resulted in a place that appears to be enjoyable to work within and provides a broader community benefit via the recreational facilities on site."

"This project demonstrates that with cross-sector collaboration and the proper implementation of controls industrial parks can result in positive contribution to broader community."
