Kokomo Private Island Fiji owner, Lang Walker will be one of two inductees into the Australian Property Hall of Fame this year.
The Property Council of Australia will inaugurate him and fellow developer, Stuart Hornery at the Property Leaders Dinner at Parliament House in Canberra on May 30.
Council national president, Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz said they were selected by the board for their sustained and visionary leadership, contributions to the industry and Australia and for legacies that stood the test of time.
“Lang has lived and breathed property for more than five decades, delivering 1,000 projects, from national landmarks to homes for thousands of families,” she said.
The Council noted that Walker presently oversees a project pipeline of $25 billion, including the $2.5 billion Collins Square development in Melbourne and the $2 billion Parramatta Square in Sydney and over 28,000 dwellings in Malaysia that Walker Corporations is delivering over the next 15 years.
In Fiji, Kokomo opened on Yaukuve Island, off the Kadavu coast, on March 31, as the first hotel and resort management project of Walker Corporation, Australia’s largest, privately-owned, diversified property development company.
Embodying Walker’s enthusiasms of living near the water’s edge, waterfront development and enjoying activities on the water, Kokomo has been described as his passion project, with the property including his own beachfront residence, hilltop luxury residences and exclusive beachfront villas with their own pools and private, walled gardens.
