Halcyon crowned Australia's Best

Halcyon has been recognised for its achievements after Halcyon Landing won the title of Australia’s Best Seniors’ Living at the 2014 UDIA National Awards for Excellence.

The highly contested award recognises the efforts of retirement community developers in enhancing the lifestyles of their home owners through innovation in design and management.

The National UDIA Award follows last year’s multiple state wins for Seniors’ Living and environmental initiatives along with the coveted President’s Award. 

Halcyon Joint Managing Director, Bevan Geissmann said he and the entire team were thrilled to secure the accolade and be recognised among a stable of high calibre projects from across the country.

“From the outset our aim has been to build communities rather than just houses and receiving this award at a national level is evidence of the fact we have reached our goal in that regard,” Dr Geissmann said.

“We are dedicated to providing home owners with well-rounded lifestyles and are genuine in looking out for their best interests when it comes to cost of living, health and minimising their carbon footprint."

“It shows we have found the right formula and are ticking all the right boxes for the modern senior.”

UDIA Judges were highly impressed with Halcyon Landing citing the exceptional quality of the housing and the inclusion of two-storey houses (with lifts) to address a significant site-level change. Judges also noted the strong environmental performance of the housing, which has delivered significant ongoing cost savings to home owners.

Dr Geissmann said Halcyon Landing’s facilities, paired with its affordability were the major factors that helped secure the Seniors’ Living award.

“Each Halcyon Landing home has an 8-star energy rating which has proven to be a money saver for many of our home owners – in a number of cases they have even managed to generate an income in unused energy credits.”

“We’ve also provided a transparent financial model which allows home owners to have a clear understanding of where their money is going and save on unnecessary exit fees, stamp duty or body corporate."

“This has enabled us to stand apart from our competitors and helped us to take home the Seniors’ Living award.”
