The flats and houses were designed to conform to an Urban Design Masterplan prepared by Cadell 2.
A major feature of the design and masterplan is the townhouses are accommodated along a Home Zone street while the flats are grouped around the perimeter of the development. Social Housing for the elderly is provided in secure, lift accessed flats at a key corner location close to public transport and the proposed tram extension line.

The development is an excellent result of a happy “marriage” between good architecture and masterplan. The houses are spacious and well-designed, proven to be popular amongst residents and house buyers.
