The key focus of this project was to protect significant canopy trees and respect the established character of the surrounding neighbourhood. This was achieved with a thorough site analysis and attention to detail with respect to the development layout, the architecture and tree impacts. Particular emphasis was placed on the review of levels, to ensure that tree protection zones were maintained, and the built form derived from our team of designers balancing the desire to maximise development whilst maintaining neighbourhood character.
An extensive consultation process was undertaken with Maroondah City Council and a series of neighbouring submitters, with the final decision being issued by the Tribunal.
Millar Merrigan provided a complete service to the developer including project management, surveying, building design, town planning, landscape architecture, engineering and expert witness evidence at the Tribunal.
The result is a distinctive and appealing development that is showing strength in the real estate market and exceeding estimated sales returns. This development is being marketed by Stockdale & Leggo – Croydon.
