The search is back on to acknowledge creative urban design projects that have enhanced the City of Logan.

The Logan Urban Design Awards (LUDA) is a biennial event that recognises excellence in design and delivery across projects big and small.

The 2020 awards were due to be announced last year but were postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nominations re-open on Monday, January 18 for projects, businesses or events within the City of Logan that were completed from 2017 to 2020.

Judging will be in four categories: Master Planning; Landscape Architecture and Urban Infrastructure; Architecture and Business; and Programs and Events.

The Retreat estate in the booming suburb of Yarrabilba was the overall winner in the last LUDA awards.

In choosing The Retreat – which features the innovative Buxton Park – as the 2018 LUDA overall winner, judges praised the estate for creating “great places that are enjoyable and prosperous”.

“This project is recognised for connectivity to the residential catchment, accessibility to and through the open space . . . (and) a high standard of master-planning, design, construction and community development,” the judges said.

Nominations for all four categories close on Sunday, February 28.

Entries are open to everyone from major developers through to sole operator businesses and community organisations.
