Carolina

Carolina

AVID Property Group’s Carolina, located in Deanside, is a haven for the local community amid the hustle and bustle of the Melbourne growing west.

We take pride in helping individuals find their happy place at Carolina, which has earned the ‘Six Leaf’ national EnviroDevelopment certification for master-planned communities from the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA).

Carolina is in the process of creating a sustainable community of over 730 lots, set to accommodate 1400 residents. Those who call Carolina home will enjoy extensive green spaces throughout the community, including a 1km Grand Linear Reserve. This reserve forms the community’s backbone, stretching out to the majestic wetlands in the south. This expertly designed master plan encourages residents to come together in these open spaces to foster a strong sense of community, helping everyone to find their own happy place.

In support of this, Carolina’s own Community Development Manager has personally delivered countless hampers during the festive season to Carolina residents and oversees the local community grants program, which has aided the Melton Performing Arts and the Carolina Springs Scout Group.

With a meticulous design, Carolina urges all its prospective residents to construct sustainable, energy-efficient homes, fostering a lively community centered around healthy living, respect for the natural environment, and overall well-being.

Carolina’s care and attention to detail has made it one of the most sort after locations to live in Melbourne’s growing west. Find out more about Carolina at www.carolina.avid.com.au

Arbor

Arbor

Superbly located at the base of the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, Arbor has been designed to enhance, protect, and celebrate the unique character of the surrounding environment.

The gently undulating shape of the land lends a special character to Arbor. Extensive plantings of native and indigenous species create important habitats for local birdlife, while the carefully designed path network, play spaces, architecturally designed shelter and seating nodes provide ample opportunity for residents to pause and appreciate this special environment. Mature eucalypts have been protected and enhanced through responsive design.

A central green spine creates a view axis to the environmentally significant Gum Scrub Creek, a short stroll to the east, as well as providing a landscaped bookend to each of Arbor’s streetscapes, ensuring each home site shares a visual connection to nature.

Over 20,000 native and indigenous plants and trees provide important habitats and contribute to maintaining local biodiversity.  Homeowners are provided with extensive information on indigenous plants for landscaping and design controls prevent the planting of species recognised as environmental weeds.  Kerbside green waste collection is available to residents and is promoted to reduce landfill and decrease greenhouse gas emissions.

Arbor seeks to engage with its community around sustainability, with information on thirty different environmental initiatives promoted to residents.  Even Arbor’s Land Sales Centre is powered by accredited 100% renewable electricity.

Home sites at Arbor are generously proportioned, creating a premium neighbourhood feel with more green space around every home. The most common lot depth is thirty-six metres, affording residents greater opportunities for entertaining, landscaping and outdoor lifestyle.

Taylors Quarter

Taylors Quarter

Development Victoria set a clear objective during the early design phase of Taylors Quarter, to achieve the UDIA’s EnviroDevelopment certification, recognising the positive impacts this would have for future residents and the environment.

In achieving this certification in 2019, the project was commended on the quality and content of their Climate Change Risk Assessment, with this work being recognised as an exemplar for other developers committed to sustainable outcomes.

Some of the project’s key initiatives include:

  • Water Sensitive Urban Design features such as raingardens, which are integrated into the streetscapes and open space.
  • More than 90% of plant species used within the development are native.
  • Planting within Messara Park incorporates the local native and critically endangered Grasslands of the Victorian Volcanic Plains vegetation community.
  • Implementation of a Construction Waste Management Plan and a 60% recycle or reuse rate on site.
  • Design Guidelines which consider energy requirements, including active and passive design standards, peak load reduction measures and a 6-star minimum NatHERS rating, as well as mandated energy efficiency initiatives.
  • Low VOC emission paints, sealants, adhesives and floor coverings, and E0 engineered wood products mandated within the design guidelines.
  • A 3,000L rainwater tank is mandated for all lots, to be connected to toilets, laundries and irrigation systems, as well as water-efficient sanitaryware and appliances.
  • The design of the public realm has considered community, social interaction and the linkages to quality open spaces.
  • The site has ample access to public transport, parks, nature reserves, sports ovals and local services/amenity.

Development Victoria’s commitment to environmental sustainability led to a collaboration with Brimbank City Council to provide 20% RAP (Recycled Asphalt Pavement) Type N asphalt mix for all road pavements – a significant improvement on the standard 10% RAP asphalt mix which was more commonly used at the time.

The use of 20% RAP asphalt mix reduces the consumption of natural resources (aggregate and binder), and the volume of material going to landfill.

Stormwater management was a particular focus for this site, with significant increases in expected stormwater flows since establishment of the suburb. A combination of underground stormwater storage tanks and retarding basins provided the solution, with the underground tanks effectively ‘hidden’ away under the grassed kick-about area of Messara Park.

These storage tanks also provide Council with future opportunities for re-use of the stored stormwater for irrigation of the grass and garden areas of the park.

Canopy

Canopy

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.’
