2020 Category Winner

York & George (NSW)
Owned by Fife Capital Group and nominated by Colliers International

York & George fuses the history of York Street with the energy of George Street. Rectification works to commercial heritage properties on York Street are juxtaposed to the modern glass, sandstone and basalt George Street retail frontage. A slender residential apartment tower rises above, offering themed apartments that reflect this architectural fusion.
