Howard Smith Wharves Crowned Retail Property of the Year

Howard Smith Wharves has been awarded the title of 2019 Queensland Retail Property of the Year, the state’s most prestigious retail property title. 

The Property Council of Australia’s Queensland Retail Property of the Year Awards acknowledges the best in retail properties and precincts across the State. The award categories reward excellence in relation to design, marketing, presentation and food retailing. 

The winners were announced at the annual Retail Awards Gala Dinner held at the Royal International Convention Centre on Friday 23 August.

Property Council Queensland Executive Director, Chris Mountford, said “Howard Smith Wharves has breathed life into one of Brisbane’s most historical sites by bringing together an array of high-quality restaurants, function areas, a boutique hotel and public open space.”

“A once-derelict piece of prime land just minutes from the Brisbane CBD has been transformed into the city’s hottest food and beverage precinct, enhancing Brisbane’s offering to residents and visitors.

“Howard Smith Wharves is an outstanding example of urban regeneration, capturing some of the most iconic parts of our city.

“Howard Smith Wharves also took home the ‘Excellence in Food Retailing’ award, a remarkable achievement in its own right.

“We would also like to recognise Amanda Attard from AMP Capital for winning Emerging Retail Property Professional of the Year Award, a brand-new category introduced to this year’s awards to acknowledge up and coming talent in the retail property sector.

“The Property Council would like to congratulate all the finalists and winners of the 2019 Retail Property of the Year Awards. All those nominated have shown outstanding achievements and contribute to the success of the Queensland retail sector.”
