Words by Jodie Powell

A commitment to open space, generous block sizes and accessibility is putting North Harbour on the map.

The developing community at Burpengary East will eventually be around 3000 houses, as well as schools, a business precinct the size of Brisbane’s CBD, entertainment and medical precincts and a supermarket.

North Harbour sales manager Aidan Winter says 1500 lots have opened up in the past eight-and-a-half years, with another 150 to be released in this residential stage.

He says the latest display village of 37 homes is filled with options to tempt new residents.

“We have a really good mix of local and national builders, all with a focus on quality living,” Aidan says.

"Most comparable projects have a lot higher density than North Harbour, where our average block sizes are larger."

Builders represented in the latest display village include ABC Homes, Bold Properties, Brighton Homes, Burbank Homes, Catapult Homes, Coral Homes, Creation Homes, Clarendon Homes, Emerald Developments, GJ Gardner Homes, Hallmark Homes, Homes by CMA, Cheney Constructions, Metricon Homes, MSN Homes, Orbit Homes, Plantation Homes, Rise Homes, Stroud Homes and Stylemaster Homes.

Sense of community

Aidan says buyers are drawn to North Harbour’s lower density housing and broad streets, which are about 1.5m wider than other similar developments in the Moreton Bay region, as well as the four-bedroom homes with double garages.

“A consistent message we get from people who choose to live here is that they really appreciate the sense of community, and the opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy all the walking trails, bike trails, playgrounds and parkland so close to home,” Aidan says.

North Harbour’s design and construction team put great effort into delivering high quality parkland and green spaces for the enjoyment of the community, which was recognised in 2021 when North Harbour took home the excellence award for Parks and Recreation at UDIA Qld’s development industry awards night.

Delivering lifestyle

The popular Heritage Park has recently reopened on weekends after being closed to the public as North Harbour works on extending Moreton Bay Blvd to link up to Exit 150 on the Bruce Highway, which Aidan says will be a game-changer.

|“It’s being built at a cost of $40 million and will be open around the end of the year, meaning motorists will be able to be on the highway within minutes.|

"We've spent $3 million on that area - the heritage relics along the Heritage Trail have been carefully preserved and tell the stories and significant developments of the North Harbour site from early European settlement through to the present day."

North Harbour’s proposed marina precinct offers to continue delivering excellent lifestyle opportunities for both residents and the broader community.

With plans for waterfront dining, tavern, luxury hotel and retail shopping alongside a marine tourism and recreational boating hub, North Harbour has visions of becoming a new recreational destination for Moreton Bay City.

Among the other features of North Harbour are free Park Run sessions on Saturdays, a 6km mountain bike trail and more than 400ha of green space.
