The Western Sydney Leadership Dialogue is a not-for-profit community initiative which has been set up to provide and encourage interaction between key influencers and opinion leaders in the region, to drive the public policy debate and support and promote the Western Sydney agenda through analysis and advocacy.
The Boomtown! awards celebrate excellence in public policy and recognise outstanding building projects in Western Sydney over the past 12 months.
Flinders Centre Bankstown, which was completed in June this year, is the newest office development complex in Bankstown’s CBD, boasting nine-storeys of contemporary, efficient and sustainable A-grade office space, with a 5-Star Green Star rating.
Bankstown Sports CEO Mark Condi says receiving an award like this is truly humbling.
“The Flinders Centre project was a big risk for us and a lot of people had advised us against building a commercial office tower in Bankstown, when the big end of town was focusing on Parramatta. But there were big things happening in Bankstown too.
“If you glance across the Bankstown CBD skyline at the moment, you can’t miss the many signs of progress. With multiple construction projects taking place and huge cranes dotting the cityscape, it’s exciting to see how our community is growing and changing to plan for the future.
“We were confident that our vision and our dream would be strong enough to succeed, and we whole-heartedly believed that we could deliver a tower with state-of-the-art facilities in a prime location, to rival all other developments”.
