Construction commences at innovative King’s Leigh community in Werribee

Construction of the innovative King’s Leigh residential community commenced at Werribee this week to help meet booming demand for quality housing in Melbourne’s west. Property developer Dacland says the 37-hectare King’s Leigh project, located four kilometres from Werribee town centre and five minutes from Werribee train station, is perfectly positioned to meet the needs of home buyers seeking a relaxed, healthy, and safe community that is also sensitive to the local environment.

“Melbourne’s west is poised for significant growth over the next two decades, with the population forecast to almost double to more than 384,000 residents in Wyndham alone. This represents an enormous demand for high-quality and affordable housing,” said Dacland Managing Director John C Dwyer.

“At King’s Leigh, useable open spaces for active and passive recreation are located throughout the community, and within a five-minute stroll of each home. In addition, the city is just 27 minutes away by train,” said Mr Dwyer.

“Dacland communities are meticulously planned, because we are committed to creating places where people want to be. We want residents to have the best of all worlds: this means easy access to local transport, shopping, education, and medical facilities; as well as just a short walk away from abundant green open spaces and opportunities for outdoor recreation, to enhance health and well-being.

King’s Leigh community offers a range of housing designs to meet people’s diverse needs. Housing design guidelines are in place to ensure the aesthetic and neighbourhood appeal of King’s Leigh, to encourage a feeling of community, and to support a strong return on investment for residents and buyers.

“Dacland’s success is built on consistently responding to consumers’ needs and aspirations. Our track record of high-quality, successful communities over the past decade is the result of our efforts to create friendly communities where people feel connected,” said Mr Dwyer.

Dacland’s Mitchell’s Run project at Doreen – which won the 2013 Urban Development Industry Award for Excellence – was designed to emphasise the natural landscape and draw from the local topography. The project featured clever urban design with easy access to local amenities, and retained mature river red gums and other significant vegetation to preserve the local character and ambience.

“We believe that we help shape a better future by creating a real ‘sense of place’ in our communities for everyone who lives there, and we expect King’s Leigh to set a new benchmark for Dacland,” said Mr Dwyer.
