Bluewattle Estate at Rasmussen.
BLUEWATTLE in Rasmussen has received two nods at the 2018 Urban Development Institute of Australia Queensland Mitchell Brandtman Awards for Excellence claiming finalist status in two categories.
Bluewattle (pictured) – developed by Defence Housing Australia – was named as one of three finalists from across the state in the Affordable Small Scale Development category during the awards ceremony last week.
Defence Housing Australia was also recognised as one of three finalists in the Community Engagement Excellence category for their Townsville project.
State president Ian Murray said a UDIA award was a true sign of excellence, quality, and industry best practice.
“Our record number of entrants this year shows the industry strongly values the opportunity to be judged alongside their Queensland peers,” Mr Murray said.
The first land of the 1300-lot development at Bluewater, located off Riverway Drv, was released in 2014.
More than 220 families call Bluewattle home and even though it’s being developed by Defence Housing Australia, it’s not exclusively for defence members.
