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.’

Harmony

Harmony

More than just a name, AVID Property Group’s $3 billion project – Harmony –is a philosophy strategically located in the heart of the Sunshine Coast and was recognised as Australia’s best Project and Master Planned Community for 2023.

As the largest master planned community underway in Palmview, Harmony is set on 378 hectares and will deliver more than 4,800 homes for 13,000 future residents, catering to a wide range of buyers – all enhanced by 130 hectares of open space and the future delivery of a more than 30,000 GFA Town Centre. More than 9,000 short-term jobs will be generated through the delivery of the project.

Harmony’s design embraces the Sunshine Coast’s enviable lifestyle and living at Harmony means it’s easy to get around.

The ingenious masterplan also features Queensland’s very first Grand Linear Park – spanning more than five hectares and running the length of ten football fields, it links residents to Harmony’s 60km network of pedestrian path and cycle ways. Adding to the parkland amenities, a future local park will pay homage to Harmony’s Grand Linear Park and provide four hectares of additional play and relaxation greenspace.

Woodlea

Woodlea

Woodlea is a fully integrated masterplanned community by Victoria Investments and Properties (VIP) and Mirvac, designed to provide wonderful homes as well as opportunities including employment, education, retail, commercial and community services.

Spanning 711 hectares, Woodlea is a major asset for the West, comprising prestigious schools, ‘destination style’ playgrounds, parks and sporting facilities and is home to a large-scale Town Centre with a Coles. Woodlea is currently home to 14,500 residents and upon completion, will effectively be a ‘mini-city in the suburbs’ with approximately 25,000 residents.

Woodlea is the largest masterplanned community in Australia to achieve all six EnviroDevelopment accreditation ‘leaves’. This demonstrates high-level performance in the areas of ecosystems, water, energy, waste, materials, and community.

Approximately 30 per cent of the site has been earmarked for public open space, incorporating an extensive network of walking and cycling paths.

A commitment to environmental preservation is evident in sensitive landscaping design, to rehabilitate habitat areas around the Kororoit Creek corridor, Deanside Wetlands, and protected river red gum forest. Woodlea is proud to be the first developer to partner with the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action (DEECA) in the procurement of the very first purpose-built wetland habitat for the protected growling grass frog.

Woodlea is ahead of its rehabilitation and conservation program with more than 30,000 trees already planted across the masterplan, with annual community events aimed to encourage residents to help see this number grow.

Woodlea is also proud to be carrying out significant works to preserve our community’s heritage, through the restoration of the historic ruins of the Rockbank Inn. Once complete, the heritage-listed site will be stabilised and made safe for the public to visit the ruins.
