Sunland Group’s Soheil Abedian to Keynote Urbanity ’18


The Urban Developer is thrilled to host legendary property developer Soheil Abedian as a keynote speaker at Urbanity ’18.

Soheil Abedian, founder and executive chairman of Sunland Group Limited, will be sitting down with fellow renowned developer Iwan Sunito (Crown Group) in a moderated conversation with Adam Di Marco, founder and publisher of The Urban Developer.

Soheil Abedian started Sunland Group Limited in the late eighties and immediately went to work transforming skylines across Australia.

He garnered early acclaim as the man who convinced designer Gianni Versace to build Palazzo Versace, the first ever fashion-branded hotel.

Later, he shattered records with the construction of Q1, once the tallest residential tower in the world.

Abedian was originally trained as an architect and his passion for design is prevalent throughout his work. Abedian's philosophy, "architecture as art", informs his approach to urban development and shaping cities.

Despite recently handing the reigns of managing director over to his son, Sahba, Soheil Abedian remains as active today as ever before.

He continues to shape Sunland’s legacy as its executive chairman while also overseeing the company’s charitable arm, the Sunland Foundation.

Grace on Coronation

Grace on Corro
Dubbed the "champagne flutes", the $430 million Grace on Coronation comprises a 27-storey and two 24-storey towers.

Grace on Coronation is a trio of residential high-rises designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid.

The buildings, inspired by blooming flowers, contain 486 apartments and eight waterfront villas, overlooking the Brisbane River.

The towers are connected by 7,300sq m of landscaped public parkland, complete with a 130-metre-wide riverside viewing platform.

Grace on Coronation is currently in limbo, with a recent judgment from the Court of Appeal finding that the development had exceeded the strict height limits outlined in the planning scheme.
