Eco-friendly development taking shape

Posted: 9am 17 Apr 2022

Work is underway on an eco-friendly master-planned community at Albany Creek.

Riverfront, with an emphasis on sustainable living, is at the junction of Albany Creek and the South Pine River and sits on 6ha of land, with Stage one incorporating 39 terrace homes.

Developed by Lucindale Holdings the development includes renewable energy solutions and rainwater harvesting.

It also has design certification from the internationally recognised EarthCheck Building Planning and Design program, based on sustainable initiatives for each home with no net loss in biodiversity.

Lucindale Holdings managing director Marcel Russ says the company has integrated innovative sustainable design principles throughout the project to provide positive, productive, and sustainable contributions for residents and the local community.

Reducing emissions

“Our design approach acknowledges the uniqueness of the location and its environment and incorporates a number of measures to reduce energy and greenhouse gas emissions, conserve natural resources and minimise waste generation and pollution throughout the planning and design of the development,” Marcel says.

“We are also committed to the sustainable procurement of local products and services and give preference to natural design elements, where possible.”

Position Property is marketing the development, with 60 percent of homes sold before construction started.

Director Richard Lawrence says Riverfront is providing a luxury, sustainable alternative that buyers had been looking for.

Eco-friendly oasis

“With climate change at the forefront of most people’s minds, we’re seeing an increase in buyers wanting to purchase sustainable housing that still looks and feels luxurious,” Richard says.

“With exclusive river and creek frontage, set upon 15 acres of land, Riverfront buyers can live in a private, eco-friendly oasis at an affordable price point.”

“Riverfront has implemented a range of initiatives in each home which are not only good for the environment, but also for the hip pocket of residents.

“Owners will benefit immensely from the project’s renewable energy solutions.”

Room to move

Paul Abad and his family chose to buy in Riverfront, attracted by space to explore for his son.

“The inclusion of solar, water tanks and all the green space with orchards and vegetable gardens really impressed us and gave us the feeling of modern suburbia paired with a mini eco village,” Paul says.

The development also includes a 20-metre pool, fire pit, community garden and a barbecue area with a woodfired pizza oven.
