THE City of South Perth’s Manning Community Hub has been named a finalist in the Australian Property Institute’s National Excellence in Property Awards.
The hub is one of three finalists in the Local Government Property Award, alongside the City of Perth Library and the Break O’Day Community Stadium in Tasmania.
The awards recognise innovation and outstanding achievement across the property industry with individual, group and sector projects.
A judging panel of industry leaders is brought together to critically assess all entries in their individual categories.
The awards will be presented on October 6 in Melbourne.
The Manning Community Hub is a multi-million dollar project aimed at creating a new heart for Manning and providing the community with a vibrant, connected and attractive precinct integrating community services and social activities.
It includes the relocated Manning Library, a community hall, Manning Child Health Clinic, Moorditj Keila Aboriginal Group, a sporting clubroom to house the Manning Rippers Football Club and an early years’ centre.
Construction of the Manning Community Hub facility started in June 2015 and was completed at the end of the following year.
The facility opened its doors to the public on February 11.
