What is the vision for the project?
Williams Landing is a contemporary urban environment, complete with 21st century infrastructure, with a range of education and childcare facilities nearby as well as sporting and leisure facilities. Designed for convenience and connectivity, there are four residential neighbourhoods that flow around the heart of this suburb along with an expansive Town Centre with its own transport hub providing train and bus services and direct freeway access.
When did the project commence and when will it be complete?
Civil construction commenced in 2008 and continues to this day. Land sales are estimated for completion within the coming three years. Apartment sales commenced in 2015 and will continue to be released and developed within the Town Centre and Addison neighbourhood over a longer period.
What are the plans for the Addison Neighbourhood?
- The Addison Neighbourhood is the last of the four residential neighbourhoods in Williams Landing. This neighbourhood will offer a mixture of land lots (compact lots and some traditional lots), terraces and duplex homes and possibly apartments.
- Sales commenced early 2016.
- Addison Park and Wetlands is the central amenity within the neighbourhood and is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
How do I purchase land?
Clients registered on the database are notified by SMS and email when land is released. Sales are made on a first-in-first served basis either direct to the public as vacant blocks or via house and land packages.
Can I build with any home builder?
Yes, purchasers of regular land allotments can select the builder of their choice. Some lots are restricted to certain builders such as medium density lots, house and land packages or display builder land releases, and these will be clearly identified.
Is the site contaminated?
The history of the airfield is well understood.
Comprehensive assessment and remediation work was undertaken by the Federal Government prior to sale of the site to Cedar Woods. The site has been signed off by an EPA accredited environmental auditor and declared suitable for residential development and other sensitive uses.
Remaining RAAF Base & Hangar Precinct
As far as Cedar Woods is aware, the site will continue to function as a base for the foreseeable future. The remaining base may be re-developed at a future date.
What is the Williams Landing Neighbourhood Grants Scheme (NGS)?
Cedar Woods host an annual Neighbourhood Grants Scheme (NGS), which is available for not-for-profit community organisations within the local area. In 2016, Cedar Woods donated $30,000 in sums of $250, $500, $750, $1000 or $2000 to 34 different community organisations.
What are the key features of the Williams Landing Town Centre?
The Williams Landing Town Centre has a land area of approximately 50 Ha. To put this in perspective, it compares in area with the CBD’s of Dandenong, Box Hill and Geelong. The Town Centre has a land area approximately 3½ times the size of the Point Cook town centre.
It is envisaged that the Williams Landing Town Centre will ultimately be a Town Centre in the broader sense and include other uses such as office, residential, medical, retail and services, as well as the Williams Landing Shopping Centre. It is Cedar Woods’ intention to deliver a high quality, high density retail, commercial and residential precinct. In total, the Town Centre has the capacity to accommodate in excess of 400,000sqm of gross floor space.
As the population of the City of Wyndham continues to grow, the number of white-collar workers employed within the municipality will also increase. It is anticipated that the Williams Landing Town Centre has the potential to accommodate more than 23,000 employees.
Williams Landing Town Centre is an ideal business location as it boasts:
- Being located within one of Australia’s fastest growing municipalities;
- Excellent access to major road networks and to surrounding suburbs;
- Immediate access to public transport;
- Convenient retail and service amenity; and
- High quality design.
When will the Town Centre be completed?
The Town Centre will develop progressively over many years. Cedar Woods has completed works on the first stages, which included the first stages of the Williams Landing Shopping Centre. Construction has begun on the first apartment building, Newton Apartments, which are on program to be complete mid-2017.
The delivery timeframe of the Town Centre is dependent on authority approvals and market demand.
