Harry Triguboff is well known for his significant philanthropic interests and passion for tourism growth.
Meriton Apartments was founded in 1963 when Harry Triguboff built his first block of units in the
Sydney suburb of Tempe, with just a small block of eight apartments.
From those early days and under his guidance, Meriton has grown to become Australia’s
largest apartment builder. Today the name Meriton is synonymous with residential apartment
developments. In fact, more people have purchased apartments from Meriton, than any other
developer in Australia.
10 years ago, Meriton identified an opportunity in the market for luxury, self-contained apartment
sized hotel style accommodation. Bringing together industry experts and experience from some of
the world’s leading hotel groups, he forged a new brand that is Meriton Serviced Apartments (MSA).
Starting with just 25 apartments in Bondi Junction, the brand has grown to a staggering
3,076 apartments across 13 locations. This amazing growth is largely due to Meriton’s dedication
to quality and high levels of consistency together with commitment to build brand new, iconic
masterpieces that now form the MSA portfolio.
This successful combination has delivered a much-needed fresh addition to the Australian hotel
In 1990, Mr Triguboff was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) and an Officer of
the Order of Australia (AO) in 1999. In June 2008, Harry Triguboff was awarded an honorary
doctorate from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
