Meet the future property leaders of tomorrow

Full of energy, passion and excitement, meet our future leaders of tomorrow, who gained valuable industry insight from the Shoreline team at a special Futures in Property day.

Meet a roll call of our region’s future leaders. This eager group of senior students from Victoria Point State High School took a behind the scenes look at what it takes to build a thriving, connected community at Shoreline.

The Futures in Property initiative welcomed the design and construction students to step into the shoes of a Lendlease developer for the day, witnessing first-hand how innovation, design and placemaking has transformed Shoreline from a vision into a vibrant neighbourhood.

Lendlease Social Impact Manager Danielle Kollanyi said the initiative gave the high school students insight into various careers in the property development and construction sector.

“Students were given a behind the scenes look into designing a park space. Listening to landscape architects Vee Design, they then took a tour to the site compound for a safety toolbox talk with Shadforth Civil where they got to see all the works underway on site,” she said.

“We also took the students on a walking tour around the completed stages to show them the many different parts of construction required to create residential land parcels, looking at things like civil works, drainage, electrical, sewerage and all the things under the ground that you wouldn’t even realise are there. Because the students were design and construction students, we tailored the day to suit what they were studying, focusing on the design and construction elements of a master planned community.

“Fiteni Homes gave students a guided tour of the new Display Home which was followed by a BBQ lunch (and a few turns on the slides) in Jingeri Park. The students finished off the day working on a design activity for a future foreshore park before presenting their innovative ideas to the team. Some very creative minds in the room.”

To learn about the inner workings of designing a community park, students met with Lendlease State Design Manager Sue Dewar, who spoke about the importance of vision behind design.

Sue explained how Jingeri Park was created to pay homage to the history of the region, while the lighthouse play structure represents a shining beacon, welcoming residents and the wider community to Shoreline.

A big thank you to everyone involved, especially the student superstars for their enthusiasm and creativity. We look forward to seeing the bright futures that lie ahead for the students.
