Our vision

To create extraordinary places for people to live, work and be entertained.

Our values


We demonstrate integrity in everything we do, from the acquisition of land through to construction and sales. We believe that our responsible and honest approach will yield the best outcomes for those that work with us, live with us, and the communities where our developments reside.


We are innovative and intelligent in everything we do, from concept through to development completion. We believe that by taking calculated risks we inspire creative thinking that adds value and delivers extraordinary outcomes in the process.


We eagerly adapt and embrace change that allows us to design with the future in mind. We believe that with change comes knowledge, and with knowledge comes enrichment and the imagination to create better and more sustainable spaces to live and work.


We believe that the best results are those that are informed and constructed through the collective insight of positive partnerships. Our teams work closely with all levels of government, industry partners, local contractors, communities and stakeholders to create new urban spaces that redefine how we live, work and relax.

International partnerships

With a deep and rich international heritage, the R&F group of companies has formed strong international partnerships with leading architectural firms and global hotel brands such Marriott International Inc., Hyatt Hotels Corporation, InterContinental Hotels Group PLC (IHG), Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc., and Accor.

Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA)

R&F Property Australia sponsored the 2017 APSA Screen Awards which are hosted annually in Brisbane. The APSAs recognise and promote the cinematic excellence and cultural diversity of the vast Asia Pacific region. Nominated films come from 70 countries and areas from the Middle East to Polynesia, from Russia to Australia.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Across our international operations, the R&F group of companies contributes millions of dollars to support charities including cultural, education, senior and youth care, public security, poverty alleviation, disaster relief, literacy and sport development programs.

We love Football

In 2011, we established the Guangzhou R&F Football Club, and in 2012 partnered with the Chelsea Football Club (F.C.) to create the R&F Chelsea Football School in the Guangdong Province – the ‘hometown’ of football in China.

The school introduced a youth football training program based on the Chelsea F.C. own program, to groom younger football generations for the future. A huge success, our teams have won a number of national youth football competitions.


Restoring environmental amenity

With each of our developments we seek out opportunities to improve the natural environmental amenity. This includes the remediation, revitalisation and reactivation of disused sites into vibrant liveable spaces that expose dormant land to the community.

Protecting our environment

During the planning, approvals, design and construction of our developments we seek out best environmental practices to ensure we provide the necessary protections to our local waterways, and sensitive flora and fauna. We also work closely with local community groups, councils, and environmental agencies to ensure full compliance with relevant legislation and any project specific conditions defined under the Environmental Protection Act.


Unparalleled industry knowledge across the retail, residential and commercial development sectors has established our reputation as a trusted partner and key player in the delivery of future-facing properties.


With 68 projects currently under development in 27 cities, our asset portfolio lies in investment properties, boasting a diverse mix of sites including 17 star-rated hotels. Within the next five years, this target will increase to 20 sites in some of Asia Pacific's most vibrant cities.

With a landmark totalling 2.35 million square metres, we are sufficiently equipped for more projected growth over the next few years.
