Lakeside shines on national stage
Halcyon Lakeside at Bli Bli is Australia’s best Seniors Living community after winning the accolade at the 2019 UDIA National Awards for Excellence.
Lakeside prevailed in a strongly contested field of projects from across Australia to deliver Halcyon its fourth national award.
The picturesque community overlooking two lakes picked up the gong just months after winning in the same category at the 2018 UDIA Qld Awards for Excellence.
Halcyon joint managing director Dr Bevan Geissmann said receiving the national award in the company’s 15th anniversary year was particularly momentous.
“We are enormously proud to receive peer recognition at the national level for Halcyon Lakeside,” Bevan said.
“It is a milestone moment in what is a significant milestone year for the company.
“Excellence and innovation have been guiding lights for Halcyon’s growth and success since its inception in 2004.
“To receive acknowledgement of this calibre encourages us to keep evolving and innovating to create the best possible lifestyle for our home owners.”
Halcyon Lakeside project director Chris Carley said he was thrilled that Lakeside had followed its sister development, Halcyon Landing, in winning the award.
“It is gratifying that both of Halcyon’s Bli Bli communities have been acknowledged on the national stage for their excellence,” Chris said.
“We couldn’t be prouder – it reflects our desire to be the best rather than the biggest.”
All three of Halcyon’s Sunshine Coast communities have now won national or state UDIA awards.
Offering 232 homes within a lush landscape, Lakeside has a $6 million Lifestyle and Recreational Precinct and offers spectacular views across two lakes and towards iconic Mt Coolum.
The award comes as Lakeside nears completion four years after its launch, with only 5 homes remaining and the final homes under construction.
The accolade further cements Halcyon’s status as Australia’s most awarded lifestyle community developer, having earned 19 state and national awards since 2006.
