The Allen Jack+Cottier designed One Melrose building won a gold in the Architecture, Proposed Large Site category.
The impressive building has almost topped out with residents expected to move in next year.
The next stage, Three Melrose will go on sale on Saturday.
The Melrose Park North project, at the corner of Victoria Road and Wharf Road, includes nearly 1100 apartments, supermarket, café and childcare centre.
PAYCE Director Dominic Sullivan said the award recognised the work put into designing the striking buildings.
“These buildings will set the standard for the development with its curved forms blending seamlessly and smartly with the environment,” he said.
“The perfect balance of stunning design and natural beauty, One Melrose has raised the bar to create a new benchmark in living, inside and out.’’
To the south of the site, another 5000 apartments are planned, including a major commercial and retail centre.
The award winning One Melrose – residents to move in next year.
Melrose Park, which is Sydney’s biggest urban renewal, will create 10,000 jobs in construction and more than 1,500 permanent new jobs.
Two other major PAYCE projects, South Village at Kirrawee and luxury development The Albany at Crows’ Nest also won awards.
