Jackson Green recognised as Australia’s best new development project

3 December 2020

Victoria’s Jackson Green has been recognised as Australia’s best new community development, winning ‘Development of the Year – New Communities’ in The Urban Developer Awards.

Jackson Green, located in Clayton South, is a 6.5-hectare, $230 million masterplanned development which has transitioned into a medium density suburb in recent years. Built on a former factory site, which was also the filming location for the Logie-winning TV series, Wentworth, the community incorporates 151 townhomes and over 400 apartments across four buildings. 

Cedar Woods’ Chief Operating Officer, Patrick Archer, said Jackson Green’s diverse range of high-quality, affordable dwellings and well-designed green spaces is breathing new life into the suburb. 

“Creating a new community in an established area needs careful planning and sympathetic design. We worked closely with consultants to create a well-considered residential masterplan that integrates townhomes and apartments, alongside an internal road network, parks and pedestrian links to the surrounding streets,” says Mr Archer.

A key factor in Jackson Green’s success is not only its proximity to existing amenity, such as public transport, supermarkets, schools including Monash University and the Monash Medical Centre, but also the range of housing price points. Apartments within Jackson Green’s latest development, Aster Apartments, are priced from just $361,800* and offer opportunities for buyers who may otherwise be priced out of the sought-after suburb. 

DKO Architecture has designed all townhomes and apartments at Jackson Green to ensure a high standard of living. At its heart, the project’s design focuses on open space, pedestrian traffic and bike-friendly accessibility.

Jackson Green also integrates sustainable measures to each dwelling, such as rainwater tanks, energy efficient and water-saving appliances, and gas boosted solar hot-water. The townhomes and apartments have achieved a 6.5-star and 6.6-star energy rating under the NatHERS rating system respectively.

Jackson Green has delivered on its promise of high-quality, sustainable homes in a well-planned environment and Cedar Woods is delighted that this has been recognised by The Urban Developer.
