Nelsons Ridge is one of the last large-scale “Greenfield sites” in the region.
Set amongst the towering gums and capitalising on views from Prospect Hill, Nelsons Ridge will be transformed into a vibrant community offering a range of inner urban housing options with a contemporary urban character.
A central heart and series of tranquil water features will meander through the centre of the site creating a key focal point for residents
Nelsons Ridge is spread over 104 hectares and is expected to be home to 4,000 residents in 1,500 homes upon completion.
More than 40% of the community is dedicated to open space, including parks and nature reserves, a six-hectare conservation park and over 6km of bike tracks and a further 5km of walkways to help you explore the Nelsons Ridge community. Every home will be conveniently near a landscaped park or nature reserve.
Nelsons Ridge is well connected to surrounding amenities, with many local schools within either walking distance or easy access by public transport.

This accreditation recognised our commitment to sustainable initiatives and continuing to create safe communities across the region.
