All gold winners in the International Council of Shopping Centres (ICSC) regional awards program are automatically entered to the prestigious global awards program.
East Village, which opened in 2014 and has been co-owned with Mirvac Retail since 2015, won the Gold Award in the 2016 ICSC Asia Pacific Shopping Centre Awards in the category of New Developments under the section of “Design and Development Excellence” at the Shangri-La at Fort in Manila.

PAYCE Director Dominic Sullivan said East Village was a remarkable success story, providing a great focal point for Victoria Park.
“This project has not only set an Australian benchmark but quite rightly is being recognised internationally,” he said.
“This includes all aspects of the project from design to the extensive sustainability initiatives built in.
“East Village has provided a one-stop living location for people on the edge of the Sydney CBD.”
Mr Sullivan said East Village had completed the planning vision for Victoria Park.
“It is an inspiring integrated residential, retail and dining precinct,” he said.
“This award recognises the hard work put in by everyone who worked on the project.”
