Belmont Urban Eco Village
Our Belmont Urban Eco Village will be a biophilic, sustainable, cross-laminated timber eco-building, with an activated street-front and common spaces, including a genuine productive rooftop garden designed to actively curate community. Rooftop garden plots allow apartment-dwellers to share a ‘backyard’, a common desire from downsizers. To increase diversity, we have a range of housing types, including accessible, micro and studio apartments right up to three-bedroom apartments. A community curator will be employed to optimise community cohesion.
Nestled in the Belmont Town Centre, the location is walkable to shops, schools, employment, public transport and lifestyle amenities, minimising the need for cars, and maximising community participation.
This project has been approved unanimously by council. In conjunction with the Social Impact Hub, we are in early-stage negotiations for patient impact capital for the construction and early operation stage.
A mixed-use development on a large site, this vertical village is designed for inclusivity, sustainability, and connection. We are currently working on a development application to put to council which includes seniors housing, accessible housing for people with a disability, affordable housing, commercial space and shop-top housing. We intend to retain at least 20% of the site as long-term rental accommodation for frontline workers.
Across the site, we will use permaculture as our landscaping guide, whilst retaining established trees and nature. We will also incorporate sustainable technologies to ensure that residents are able to live sustainably.
