The following developments have now been certified as EnviroDevelopments in the Northern Territory:
- Breezes Muirhead (Defence Housing Australia and Investa Land)
- Spirit on 'The Avenue' (Osborne Family Holdings)
Breezes Muirhead is the first residential community in the Northern Territory to achieve EnviroDevelopment accreditation. Breezes Muirhead provides 1, 227 dwellings across a 167.57 hectare site. Positioned in the city's sought after northern-suburbs, Breezes Muirhead brings together the best of tropical living and sustainability in an address that offers specially designed home-sites, strategically planned lot layouts and sweeping green spaces that connect residents with the nature that surrounds them.
A key feature of Breezes Muirhead is its innovative 'breezeway' design concept. Each home site will feature a 'side yard,' facilitating the channeling of breezes throughout the community and providing an area for outdoor entertaining or boat storage. Innovative masterplanning ensures that allotments are orientated to capture the prevailing dry and wet season cooling breezes, with design guidelines encouraging home owners to adopt a sustainable, locally appropriate approach to architecture and design.
Spirit on 'The Avenue' is the first mixed-use project in the Northern Territory to achieve EnviroDevelopment certification. Forming part of a fully masterplanned precinct ('The Avenue'), Spirit includes 8,000m2 of commercial space and 144 apartments.
Located on a 1.7 hectare site, the former industrial facility has undergone significant land remediation, transforming the site into a flourishing community. The development utilised the industrial sized land to create an urban village with the promise of life's necessities within walking distance. Many of the sustainability initiatives within Spirit on 'The Avenue' are interwoven, reducing waste and increasing community benefit.
