SPEEDY DEVELOPMENT APPROVAL TIMESFRAME ACHIEVED THROUGH MULTIPLE PRELODGMENT PROCESS
“Aston Grove” is a boutique residential subdivision at Bridgeman Downs. All of JFP’s services worked collaboratively on this project from inception, through to design and implementation. The residential estate consisted of 110 residential lots, 3 bioretention basins, streetscape and entry works.
JFP’s integrated project feasibility services developed an innovative lot layout and refined project costs to a high level; which gave our Client an edge in securing a hotly contested site which went to market.
One of the key site features was an existing mature bottletree which was relocated to the central roundabout. An ex-ground bottletree was then installed at a feature tree at the entry. The trees provide a unique focal point for the estate. The mature bottle tree and retained vegetation along Darien Street provided an established feel to the estate.
The estate entry is flanked by two bioretention basins which have been enhanced with timber hardwood fencing, low stone walls and planting.
Significant earthworks, allotment benching and retaining walls were required to produce level building pads on a site with relatively steep grades which allowed for great views towards the Great Dividing Range.
