Hesperia chose to certify Rivermark under all six categories of EnviroDevelopment because of the importance of the ecology of the location and the strong interest in the community in living more sustainably.
Nestled on a quiet bend on the Swan River, Hesperia’s first masterplanned community comes to life in the heart of Viveash. On a rare parcel of land on the banks of the Swan River just 16km from Perth, Rivermark has revitalised an underutilised riverfront location. The Estate will unlock a quiet and picturesque portion of the river that has a diverse heritage and was most recently home to Midland Brick.
Reimagined riverside living is at the heart of Rivermark. A thoughtful response to the unique Western Australian landscape where good design, existing amenity and sustainability go hand in hand, residents will be offered a lifestyle immersed in their natural surroundings.
Rivermark aims to extend the established community of Viveash, with nearby amenity including schools, retail and leisure, allowing residents to have everything within easy reach.
With a commitment to achieving net zero carbon, Rivermark will incorporate a range of design and construction principles that are aligned with Hesperia’s enduring approach to sustainable development.
A sustainability focus throughout the project will be reinforced by its EnviroDevelopment 6 Leaf accreditation. Particular features include a progressive approach to renewable energy supply, widescale use of recycled materials, and an ecology led approach to landscape design of this regenerated former industrial site. Rivermark has also been endorsed by Water Corporation as a Gold Water Wise Development, achieving great outcomes in water efficiency and natural storm water management.
