The Creators – EcoWorld International
EcoWorld International is a real estate developer listed on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad with a swiftly growing portfolio in both Australia and the UK.
From its design-breaking “floating” transparent Sky Pool in Embassy Gardens London to its Australian maiden project West Village in Sydney, EcoWorld International’s developments are impactful on every front.
Since its first project in 2015, EcoWorld International has expanded rapidly through organic growth and joint ventures. The company has 18 ongoing and upcoming projects with a gross development value of GBP4.8 billion and AUD716 million in the UK and Australia respectively. Throughout this period, EcoWorld International has consistently delivered unmatched services and products of quality to its customers, including the residents of West Village and Yarra One.
Well-connected via the city’s transportation links with sprawling views of Sydney’s CBD and Blue Mountains, EcoWorld International’s West Village in Parramatta provides the best of both convenience and tranquillity.
As the company’s second project in Australia, Yarra One carries on this theme of liveability and lifestyle in South Yarra, a suburb of Melbourne that houses some of the city’s most prestigious residential addresses.
Yarra One also continues to deliver the highest standards through its uncompromising approach to luxury and timeless design. Designed by the award-winning Fender Katsalidis Architects, Yarra One brings a breath of fresh air to the neighbourhood.
The barrier-breaking approach behind EcoWorld International’s many developments has won the company numerous awards, including:
- Mixed-Use Development of the Year by British Home Awards
- Best New Place to Live by London Planning Awards
- Development of the Year by RESI Awards
- Grand Prix Award and Best Regeneration Project by London Evening Standard
- Best Residential Development at The Wharf Property Awards
Founded on the philosophy of innovation through collaboration, Fender Katsalidis has evolved from a Melbourne-centric architectural practice, to a highly awarded, multi-disciplinary international design firm whose work now influences built environment thinking across the globe.
The visionary Fender Katsalidis delivers holistic solutions in architecture, masterplanning, urban design and interiors—solutions notable not only for their design quality, but also their civic contribution and economic mindfulness. Perhaps best known for its definitive tall building and public realm designs, Fender Katsalidis takes pride in its culture of innovation that has helped shape modern Melbourne.
In designing Yarra One, Fender Katsalidis envisioned the birth of a new urban space to unwind and connect for the community and neighbours of Forrest Hill alike.
The strategic location of Yarra One’s atrium between the South Yarra train station and Chapel Street makes it a key destination and gathering place for residents and neighbours of South Yarra. Meanwhile, the tower’s façade and slender linear form speak directly to the existing language of its neighbouring towers while amplifying the significance of its role amidst the public landscape below.
