Cedar Woods receives approval for Jackson Green, Clayton South

Kingston City Council recently gave formal approval for Cedar Woods’ Jackson Green urban renewal development in Clayton South, located 19 kilometres south-east of Melbourne’s CBD. The former industrial site is being redeveloped into parklands and a residential community located with frontages along Centre, Haughton and Main Roads in Clayton South. Demolition and site clearing works have been undertaken with a display suite now established on site. The project presents an excellent urban renewal opportunity of opening up Clayton South with infill development with strong connections to its locale.

Jackson Green will embody all the ideals associated with life in the leafy south eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Jackson Green will enhance the everyday, and encourage you to make the most of each moment. A boutique community of contemporary homes and apartments, set around a beautiful central park that is poised to set a new standard for living in Clayton South.

Cedar Woods

In late 2014, Cedar Woods submitted an application to transform the former industrial site for residential use, envisaging a boutique community with a minimum of 300 dwellings offering a choice of housing types,with the masterplan and architecture delivered by DKO Architecture who were also involved in Banbury Village for Cedar Woods.

Jackson Green offers a superior community lifestyle and we anticipate significant market demand for this first class urban renewal project. The development includes a variety of housing options, ranging from one and two bedroom apartments, to townhouses and four bedroom houses. The estate’s proximity to Melbourne’s CBD, plus its high level of amenity and range of housing options, means that it will be highly sought after.

We’ve built the entire landscape concept around this beautiful tree that was one of the original features that have been retained on the site. Although the project hasn’t been released yet, web enquiry has been overwhelming, indicating a high degree of interest in the project.

The design of Jackson Green is intended to be contemporary in its architectural offering and is aimed at a relatively broad demographic, looking to cater for smaller households and the family market, to meet the needs of a growing population in the Clayton South area while providing an opportunity for younger families and first home buyers with an opportunity to enter the market within an established suburb. The development takes advantage of its location, with the site well serviced by existing infrastructure such as Monash University, Clayton Shopping Centre, two train stations at Clayton and Westall, major roads, cafes, hospitals, and with large open spaces, golf courses and parks all in close proximity.

The development is also positioned to benefit from the rebuilding of Clayton Station and removal of two level crossings as part of the Dandenong grade separation project along the Pakenham/Cranbourne train line, the addition of high capacity trains and significantly reduced travel times for people living in the south-eastern suburbs.

A significant portion of the Jackson Green site will be dedicated to a central park that will provide an impressive landscaped area comprising of a children’s playground, shelter structure and open space for both residents and the wider community to enjoy. The development takes its name from the large Port Jackson Fig tree, which is positioned at the entrance to the estate.

Following further approvals, Cedar Woods will commence work on the site in late 2015, with first settlements planned for the end of 2016 and project completion in around 2020.

Cedar Woods has several significant Victorian projects in close proximity to train stations and upgrade transport infrastructure, developing a strong reputation for quality urban renewal outcomes including Williams Landing which features a proposed regional level town centre plus 2400 residential dwellings, the recently rezoned 6.8-hectare residential development in St Albans, and Banbury Village located adjacent to West Footscray train station.
