The 70ha neighbourhood will comprise more than 800 residential lots, providing a range of housing choices to cater for the diverse needs of the Townsville community through a mix of housing types, densities, pricing and home ownership/rental options.

The new community will include an interconnected network of parks amongst the retained mature rain trees and pedestrian-friendly avenues that will link the community to the river and beyond.
