Austral Estate

Client: Vantage Property Group
Scale: Over 600 low density lots

Located in Austral, in the Liverpool LGA, approximately 31 kilometres southwest of Sydney, Austral Estate represents the largest contiguous development site in this fragmented precinct. The fragmented landownership, previous soil contamination, overhead high voltage easements and highly degraded waterways have presented numerous challenges for our design and project management teams.

Lengthy neighbour negotiations and approvals, easement land ownership challenges, and a former poultry operations site with several different types of contamination all account for one of IDC’s most complex projects.

Our innovative approach resulted in approval for part of the road corridor combined with the existing electricity easement and close collaboration with Endeavour Energy and Council – this meant the housing yield was uncompromised, and the community received a continuous green spine through the estate.
