A significant 6.5hectare infill site, in Clayton South, just 25kms from Melbourne’s GPO on the newly completed SkyRail train line. Developed by Cedar Woods as master planned by Ratio, DKO Architects and MDG Landscape Architects, this is a boutique community of contemporary homes and apartments set around a beautiful central park. Heavily influenced by a large Port Jackson Fig Tree (retained on Haughton Rd), the high-density terraced homes together with low rise apartment towers meander along tree and grass lined streetscapes without a hint of crowding that (350) dwellings would normally present.

ULS Group created these streetscapes together with open reserves, a playground, a sheltered BBQ & dining area, gardens and a retaining basin – a sanctuary near a train line will have passing commuters wishing that they had no further to travel home.
