CLIENT: Pask Group
LOCATION: Melbourne’s north west
CASE STUDY: The Maples
LD Eng worked through a due diligence process for the acquisition of several sites within the Greenvale Central area for a residential development of approximately 450 lots. The permit for the site was issued in early 2017 and detailed design is progressing with construction scheduled to commence in mid 2017.
The sites are well located with easy access to Mickleham Road, Aitken College and the Greenvale Shopping Centre.
The planning process involves extensive negotiation over traffic management and upgrade of the surrounding roads to include a major signalised intersection, sewer pump station and rising main and water sensitive treatment measures.
What we did
LD Eng personnel are working closely with our Client to coordinate the development plan and permit. Negotiations with Hume regarding development contributions and works in kind offsets are proceeding.
A sewer pump station is required to service the site. LD Eng is working closely with Yarra Valley Water to deliver the most economical and sustainable sewer strategy for the overall catchment.
The projects returns have been magnified by aggregating the infrastructure costs over a number of smaller sites and negotiation of appropriate development contributions and reimbursements for external infrastructure.
