In 2011, Mirvac purchased the 47-hectare site of the Eastern Golf Club after course operators decided to relocate to the Yarra Valley.
Mirvac unveiled plans to develop the golf course into Tullamore Estate, a new residential community with 800 dwellings, pocket parks, small woodlands, playgrounds together with numerous walking and cycling trails.
The developer’s focus was to maintain the abundance of mature and habitat trees and make key infrastructure components the focal points. Planning for the development commenced in 2011 and site-works in 2015. The development will be finalised in 2021.
Cardno was engaged by Mirvac to provide multi-disciplinary consulting and design services. These include civil, water, geotechnical and traffic engineering.
The development has achieved a Six Leaf sustainability rating with the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) and awarded an Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) Excellence Award in the category of Victorian parks and open space
Working closely with design partner MDG Landscape Architects, Cardno delivered hard infrastructure to marry in with the natural habitat. We successfully managed the challenging topographic, environmental and hydrologic conditions to deliver a remarkable and sustainable residential community.
