Lendlease's approach to creating communities

When it comes to creating masterplanned residential communities, Lendlease is leading the way. Learn more about Lendlease’s approach to creating communities that benefit those who call them home.

Lendlease Communities Kinma Valley

For more than 60 years, Lendlease has been leading the way in creating masterplanned residential communities across Australia that offer a true sense of belonging. Masterplanned communities are thoughtfully, carefully and comprehensively designed neighbourhoods that encompasses everything needed to live a happy, healthy and connected lifestyle. Globally, Lendlease has created more than 50 masterplanned communities, six of them located in Queensland.

The newest Queensland community is Kinma Valley, located midway between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast in the northern suburb of Morayfield. Kinma Valley promotes resident needs and lifestyle preferences at the core of its design. In a major collaboration, the masterplan was designed after extensive consultation, to consider all aspects of the future community with the views of local groups and community members incorporated into the final design.

With healthy outdoor living an important focus, the community has plans for 12 parks, several adventure playgrounds and more than six kilometres of walking and cycling paths, all interconnected with the extensive central nature reserve.

A vast variety of new homes will be available to suit a wide range of buyers, including first home buyers, young families, upgraders, and empty nesters. Larger lots, distinctive building materials, innovative street design and casual neighbourhood meeting spaces will be key features of the community.

An innovative community hub will offer convenience shopping and dining complementing the existing wide range of shopping and other services in the area.

Living connected

Lendlease was born out of a vision to create a company that could successfully combine the disciplines of construction, development and investment. But at the heart of it, Lendlease communities are all about fostering a strong sense of belonging and opportunities to connect with neighbours and friends.

To facilitate connection in Kinma Valley, the community will include plenty of parks that are perfect for barbeques and picnics as well as a proposed Neighbourhood Hub that will provide opportunities for community initiatives and social gatherings. The plans for the precinct also feature a grocery store, childcare centre, coffee shop and other specialty stores to provide locals with a central hub to meet and do life together.

Living healthy

Lendlease communities are designed to connect residents with nature and each other as well as inspiring everyone to live a healthy life. In Kinma Valley, residents will be surrounded by inviting green spaces at every turn. With picturesque walking paths, sprawling parks, bushland reserves and natural waterways, there’s plenty of opportunities to be amongst nature and boost physical and mental health. Plus, whether it’s grabbing a coffee with a friend at the Neighbourhood Hub, going for a walk with family among the nature reserves or having a picnic with neighbours in the park, Kinma Valley will offer countless opportunities for residents to stay connected and keep well.

Living sustainably

Sustainability is another core value of Lendlease communities, with all projects being guided by a robust sustainability strategy and targeting world leading Green Star ratings. Key environmental focus areas include the conservation of resources and materials, the mitigation of climate change as well as the protection and restoration of the natural environment.

Kinma Valley will target a 6 Star Green Star rating by seamlessly incorporating green surroundings and sustainable innovations. More than thirty percent of the community will be dedicated to open spaces and there are plans for a central parkland spanning more than 100 metres to run the length of the community. This will ensure that wherever Kinma Valley residents live, they will only ever be a few steps away from nature. Lendlease has also worked closely with ecologists, environmental consultants to ensure the masterplan respects the habitats of the native wildlife and ensures there’s still space for them to thrive.
