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.
