Warner Lakes The Reserve is a residential community located 30 minutes north from the Brisbane CBD in the suburb of Warner. Developed through a partnership between Defence Housing Australia and Peet Limited, the 36 hectare site will house over 1,400 new residents across 465 lots.
The site, which was previously used as a quarry, has been rejuvenated to provide extensive open space and conservation areas. The development features a Conservation Corridor, to preserve the native habitat for local flora and fauna species, including the endangered White-bellied Sea Eagle. Guidelines are in place to protect the native species, especially during breeding season. Safe road crossing options have also been designed to help wildlife move through the site.
Warner Lakes The Reserve is expected to enhance social mix in the local area, with provisions for diversity in housing types and price points suitable for a range of different income groups.
