Crowne Plaza Adelaide judged Australia’s top tourism development.
Hines Property's Crowne Plaza Adelaide development has been honoured by Australia's property industry, with the hotel judged the nation's best tourism and leisure development.
The landmark Hindmarsh Square hotel was formally acknowledged at the 2012 Property Council of Australia Innovation & Excellence Awards announced in Sydney on Saturday night.
It was the only South Australian development to receive an award.
Hines Property Managing Director James Hines said the award is a fantastic endorsement for Crowne Plaza Adelaide and the innovative work of Hines Property.
"Since Crowne Plaza Adelaide opened two years ago, it has welcomed more than 250,000 guests and become a favourite among local, interstate and international guests," said Mr Hines.
"This award is a massive accolade and confirms Crowne Plaza Adelaide as one of Australia's premier hotels. Receiving such a prestigious national award also underlines the credentials of Hines Property, which remains committed to making the most of opportunities within the Adelaide CBD and other Australian capital cities to meet demand for luxury residential, hotel and commercial developments."
In 2010, Hines Property completed the 20 Hindmarsh Square development which included two unique towers, one being the 15-level, 308-room Crowne Plaza Adelaide hotel and the other a 14-level luxury residential apartment tower.
The Property Council of Australia award is the latest for the development, which last year won the Accommodation Association of Australia's Best Deluxe Accommodation Award following its 2010 South Australian Tourism Award for Best New Tourism Development. In 2010, Crowne Plaza Adelaide was also honoured by the Urban Development Institute of Australia as the Best Master Planned Development and by the Master Builders Association as the Best Residential Development in South Australia.
Crowne Plaza Adelaide is one of many award-winning projects by Hines Property, which is an integrated property development and property investment group with experience across high-rise residential developments, commercial/retail developments and hotel developments. As one of the most active developers in SA, Hines Property has recently completed more than $300 million of developments in the Adelaide CBD area alone
