Construction has commenced on Grocon's $40 million Greenwich Fairfield project in Melbourne's inner-suburban Fairfield. The former RSL site in Railway Place will be redeveloped over the next year and a half to become one of the area's most sustainable and socially aware apartment developments.
The appetite of owner occupiers in Melbourne for homes that are sustainable, accessible and connected to their community has impelled Grocon to deliver an innovative and sustainable development. Greenwich will be a 5 star GreenStar rated development using the Green Building Council of Australia's (GBCA) "Design and As Built tool".
In addition to its Greenstar sustainability rating the project will also be certified to the Livable Housing Australia (LHA) guidelines which are designed to provide better access, circulation and facilities for people with special needs, be they elderly Australians, young families with strollers and child rearing paraphernalia or people with temporary injuries.
Grocon has created an enviable product evidenced by a near sell out in just over a month. The high owner occupier purchasing underscores that good quality, accessible and sustainable development sells well. Greenwich is one of a number of projects that Grocon are developing to this brief with more projects to come on line in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane over the next couple of years.
In recognition of the pressure of housing affordability Grocon has committed all of its projects to The Big Issue's Homes for Homes scheme. In this respect purchasers at Greenwich have had the ability to enter the project into that scheme and in doing so give something back to the broader community.
