CLIENT: Sweeet Property Bunyip Pty Ltd
LOCATION: Melbourne’s outer northeast
Just a stone’s throw from Bunyip town centre, Rangeview Acres features 27 one acre lots set in a panoramic country landscape with a major wetland and magnificent views of the Strezlecki Ranges and Mt Baw Baw.
Rangeview Acres meets market demand for larger lifestyle allotments in close proximity to Pakenham and the south eastern coast of Victoria. Easy freeway and train station access combined with a rural community and open space wetland create a unique development in Cardinia.
What we did
LD Eng prepared development feasibilities and negotiated servicing conditions and favourable infrastructure reimbursement conditions with the relevant Authorities.
Extensive negotiations with APA were required to facilitate construction as the primary gas supply line for Melbourne traverses the site.
A major Melbourne Water potable water supply line is located in an easement immediately to the north of the site. LD Eng negotiated a lease of this area to the adjoining lots, which increased the usable lot area and also reduced maintenance costs to Melbourne Water.
LD Eng created designs sensitive to the needs of the Southern Red (Brown?) Bandicoot population to allow their safe passage along an established wildlife corridor.
The LD Eng team successfully secured external funding of a major wetland, ensured the protection of an endangered native species, and worked closely with APA adjacent to their major asset, allowing the client to confidently proceed with the development.
