Residents already agree that Harrington Grove is a magical place to live but the most recent award provides even stronger evidence. Harrington Grove has been named the best Masterplanned Community in NSW (2016) by the UDIA NSW | Meriton Awards for Excellence. The award recognises masterplanned developments that are self-sufficient and offer high standards of design. But most importantly, it is the sense of place and range of community facilities that are most sought in awarding this title.

This complements Harrington Grove’s award for Australian Residential Development of the Year (2014). The judges for that year’s Urban Development Institute of Australia Awards for Excellence noted the holistic approach and respect for the natural environment in Harrington Grove.

“The judges were particularly impressed by the overall quality of the development and attention to detail in every facet of the project. The restoration of bushland and creek lines and their integration with the residential precincts is exemplary," stated the award notes by the judges.
