In our backyard
In Queensland, Lendlease has created a number of vibrant and thriving residential communities - Fernbrooke Ridge, Forest Lake, Springfield Lakes, Stoneleigh Reserve and Woodlands – and has even more that are currently under construction including, Shoreline Redlands, Springfield Rise at Spring Mountain, Yarrabilba and Kinma Valley.
In order to create these aspirational communities, Lendlease place great importance on understanding and exceeding the needs, wants and desires of residents through offering a wide range of attainable living options in environments that deliver early amenity and are truly beautiful and sustainable.
Lendlease Urban Design Manager Sue Dewar said people like to surround themselves with things and people that resonate with them.
“While diversity and choice are paramount, it needs to be anchored by place. By understanding what makes a place unique and staying true to that, makes a place where people want to be,” she said.
“Lendlease create communities that are innovative and founded on sustainability. Sustainable design seeks to reduce negative impacts on the environment, and the health and comfort of people. The basic objectives of sustainability are to reduce consumption of non-renewable resources, minimise waste, and create healthy, productive environments where people can live a healthy life.”
