DEVELOPER: Brown Property Group
CATEGORY: Masterplanned Communities
CERTIFICATION: Ecosystems, Waste, Energy, Materials, Water, Community
As one of Victoria’s leading private residential developers, this is the Brown Property Group’s first certification.
The group has the honour of developing the former Amstel Golf Course into an exciting new, high quality residential community. The Canopy Development includes 52ha of land that is now known as 1000 Cranbourne-Frankston Road, Cranbourne, located approximately 42km south-east of the Melbourne CBD. This land was rezoned to a General Residential Zone in 2015 to facilitate its comprehensive redevelopment following the Club’s decision that the land was no longer required for golf purposes.
Canopy at Amstel enjoys a spectacular landscape setting and presents a rare opportunity to create a residential environment that offers a truly superior lifestyle experience unlike anything else on offer in the City of Casey. The urban design has sought to incorporate the very best of the site’s vegetation and landscape qualities within linear open space opportunities that weave through the residential environment. Neighbourhood cells have then been integrated around the high value landscape areas, responding to the aspirations of second and third home buyers in Casey who desire the best amenities of urban living within an environment that still maintains a ‘country feel.’
