Master Planning for a better futureAs an integrated, master-planned community our urban planners and environmental experts have ensured that every aspect of the development has been thoroughly considered for the quality of life it brings to our residents and its natural harmony with the surrounding environment.
This includes the location and variety of the homesites and surrounding parklands, the mix of schools, community amenities, recreation and leisure opportunities, public transport and even the placement of shops within the district centre.
District centreAs an important feature of the master-plan, the district centre will be a focal point for the community based around a ‘main street’ principle.
It will comprise retail outlets, restaurants, cafés and businesses providing shopping and entertainment facilities, plus important local employment opportunities.
It will also be the site of a local transport hub with a shuttle bus connecting passengers to the northern train line.
Bushland and parks foreverA big part of our thinking was based on creating a beautiful and sustainable natural environment offering healthy and comfortable living for young and old.
A large area of green parkland runs through the centre of the community. This will be the heart and soul of Banksia Grove. Featuring lush open spaces, walking and cycling trails, an adventure playground for children and even a skate park for teens there’s an abundance of recreational opportunities on offer. Not to forget the ‘Bush Forever’ Zone that provides our residents with twice the amount of reserve of other developments to enjoy.
Imagine catching up with friends for a barbeque at the local park while your children explore. Or picture your family strolling by the meandering parkland watercourse to the local amphitheatre for an open-air concert on a warm summer evening.
Education for all agesWhen completed, Banksia Grove will be home to no fewer than three public and one private Primary School, plus a proposed brand new High School. And once the kids graduate, Edith Cowan University and Joondalup TAFE are only a five-minute drive away. It means your family’s educational needs are met for life. Furthermore, with our fibre to the home broadband Internet connection, researching school projects online has never been faster.
A better environmentAt Banksia Grove, we back up our concern for the environment by the choices we make and our actions within the community.
Like our policy of retaining large areas of natural bushland, which increases the local biodiversity and doesn’t require watering. Or the fact we use the latest irrigation technology incorporating rain sensor controllers to reduce water use on public open space. Even our homesites include a waterwise front garden landscaping package.
Initiatives like these lead to us recently winning the WA Waterwise Land Development award, something we are very proud of.
But protecting our environment doesn’t stop at just water saving. We strongly support efficient energy use in the home too.
We are building a solar-passive, energy efficient, GreenSmart demonstration home to help guide new homebuilders with their plans. Even our public artwork is based on the latest green thinking.
With such a focus on the future Banksia Grove is all about better thinking and better living now, and for generations to come.
