Since the inception of Springlake, our aim has been to create a premium community development that embellishes the best of the Adelaide Hills lifestyle, culture and landscape.


That commitment was realized on Friday night at the Urban Development Institute of Australia (SA) Awards for Excellence. Receiving not only the Award for Best Residential Development in South Australia, Springlake was presented with the prestigious President’s Award, having also taken the honors for Environmental Excellence (Wetlands & Stormwater Management) and Best Affordable Housing (Hampton Cottage) earlier in the evening.

UDIA SA Chief Executive Pat Gerace said: “Springlake, as well as all the other award winners demonstrated a commitment to excellence and to delivering products that our state can be proud of.” 

Springlake Project Director Richard Osborne said the team was very honored to receive such a high accolade, and are thrilled to see Springlake developing into such a real community.

“To be recognized by the UDIA and the development industry with these awards is such a fantastic achievement for the project and we’re all very proud and humbled by it. We’re reaching the stage at Springlake where people can come and see the real thing. The lake, the parks, the quality and variety of housing. There’s a real community evolving with real outcomes being delivered. It’s a very exciting time for both Springlake and our growing community.”

The Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) is the leading representative body for the urban development industry. As the state winner, Springlake will now also enter the national awards in March 2018.
