PWC Centre and Titanium Park win urban design award
29 October 2013 - Hamilton’s PwC Centre and Titanium Park Stage 1 have been recognised at the Property Council’s ‘We Are Waikato’ awards announced on Wednesday night.
McConnell Property took out the Urban Design and Architectural Merit category awards for its outstanding contribution towards the development of the two projects. The award acknowledges project teams who have contributed to a more inspiring, innovative and wealthier Waikato.
McConnell Property Senior Development Manager Aidan Donnelly says: “The Waikato is uniquely placed to benefit from improving economic conditions and prospects for it looking forward are very favourable; Hamilton is one of New Zealand's fastest growing cities with a considerable amount of new activity coming through. We’re delighted that the PwC Centre and Titanium Park developments have been recognised by these awards as contributing to the region’s revitalisation.”
The five-storey, 5300sqm PwC Centre is the first new office building in the Hamilton CBD for several years and has transformed a site that had been vacant for 17 years.
“The PwC Centre is an important component in the revitalisation of Hamilton city centre. We're proud to be part of a development that will serve as a gateway to the heart of the city centre,” says Mr Donnelly.
Titanium Park, a major industrial business park development on the southern outskirts of Hamilton, provides a gateway to national markets. A key advantage of the high-profile development is its accessibility and connectivity: it is flanked by State Highways 1, 3 and 21, and is adjacent to Hamilton International Airport.
“Titanium Park is sited strategically at the heart of one of New Zealand’s largest export regions. Currently we have over 830 people employed at Titanium Park and Hamilton Airport, with that number forecast to increase to over 1,000 over the coming year. Titanium Park will continue to provide a valuable resource for existing and new businesses, and underpins the region’s strong economic progress,” says Mr Donnelly.
Now in its third year, the We Are Waikato awards event attracted more than 200 delegates.
