Virtue at Harrisdale – Metro’s first project in the west
The Metro WA team recently launched their first development, a 10 lot house and land development in the popular residential community of Harrisdale located 25 minutes south of Perth’s CBD.
Nestled within pristine parklands and the lake of this high quality established area, Virtue at Harrisdale offers a unique and affordable sanctuary.
Four of the ten house and land packages have already been sold with significant interest in the remainder of the development.
Virtue at Harrisdale will deliver Metro an estimated end value of $5 million with construction set to commence in coming months.
New townhouse and apartments on golf course mark beginning of Metro's NSW major project pipeline
National residential developer, Metro Property Development (“Metro”) has received DA approval from Strathfield Council for a $260 million Town Home and Apartment development on part of the Strathfield Golf Club site, representing its first major apartment development in New South Wales.
The 20,200 square metre site at 84 Centenary Drive was acquired by Metro last year. Metro will create a new residential community on the site, comprising 50 luxury Town Homes and 178 apartments, with expectations to launch in the next six weeks.
High-profile architects Marchese + Partners have been appointed to design the project. The Town Homes will offer spacious three and four bedroom designs over two and three levels, some with expansive views of the adjacent golf course. Apartments will come in a range of configurations including one, two and three bedroom designs.
“We are very pleased to have received full development approval and look forward to launching the project to the market later this month. We have already experienced a lot of early interest from buyers keen to live in this unique location right on the golf course,” said Phil Leahy, of Metro Properties.
“With a full turnkey offering exclusively located on the golf course, we had anticipated a lot of interest. The proximity to transport as well as retail and education hubs present a solid investment and lifestyle option,” he said.
Principal of Arcadia Landscape Architecture, Alex Longley said the design looks to capture the lifestyle and amenity of its location.
"We have used high quality finishes and furnishing throughout the al fresco dining areas. Open spaces are separated by flora and fauna connections, using a planting palette that will connect the golf course into the grounds of the estate,” said Longley.
Strathfield Golf Club is also currently building a new Clubhouse, expected to be complete in late 2017. It will include a range of upgraded facilities a short walk from the development site.
Construction of the Town Home site commences later this year with completion due in late 2017.
Metro has been active in the New South Wales market for over a year now, working with its home building arm Creation Homes to deliver brand new architecturally designed homes at high quality for more affordable prices across Sydney’s key growth areas.
Metro has launched several housing estates across Sydney in the last year in key growth areas such as Kellyville and Catherine Field.
Metro set to launch Adelaide Polo Club development
Metro Property Development is gearing up for the Stage 1 launch of Minters Fields, a $120m multi-staged development on the former Adelaide Polo Club site at Mt Barker in South Australia.
The premium development site, located 30km east of Adelaide’s CBD, will be Metro’s largest South Australian project and will be delivered over eight stages.
Minters Fields Stage 1, which will offer 46 lots, will give buyers the chance to purchase land only from $95,000 or customised house and land packages from $295,000.
Metro South Australia Director, Steve Weightman, said the master-planned community would offer a variety of house and land options as well as townhome living.
“Minters Fields will offer 288 lots to be delivered in eight stages over coming years. These lots will consist of a variety of options including land only, house and land packages as well as townhomes,” Mr Weightman said.
“The former Adelaide Polo Club site offers us a unique opportunity to create a master-planned community which is centered around more than 15 hectares of parks and recreational fields.”
My Weightman said Metro would offer buyers a variety of options to purchase and build their dream home at Minters Fields.
“Metro South Australia is one of the state’s largest integrated developer builders. For buyers this means they can access a huge range of building options when choosing Minters Fields for their dream home,” Mr Weightman said.
“We can offer everything from full turnkey house and land packages to tailoring building contracts that suit individual buyer specifications. Buyers may even want to purchase land and use their own builder which is all achievable at this Mt Barker development.”
Development Approval for the Stage 1 release is currently underway which will be followed by a project launch in coming months. Construction is set to begin at Minters Fields from September this year with the first of the homes scheduled for completion in late 2017.
Mt Barker is one of the fastest growing inland areas in Australia with average annual growth of 4.6% between 2006 to 2011 according to the ABS Census of Population and Housing.
“Mt Barker is a developing and expanding township that offers the country charm of rural living, yet is an easy commute to Adelaide. This has seen significant demand for housing in the area with new developments commencing in recent years,” Mr Weightman said.
Since forming in 2010, Metro has delivered more than 5,000 homes, townhomes and apartments across Australia.
Metro was ranked the fastest growing private company in 2015 in the Top 500 Private Companies List released by The Australian and IBISWorld in September and ranked 108 overall.
