Lendlease has unveiled its new $500 million residential community, Kinma Valley, which is expected to be home to more than 6,500 people, in one of Australia’s fastest growing regions for new home buyers.
Located midway between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast in the northern suburb of Morayfield, the new community is approved for up to 2,500 new homes alongside an approximately 31-hectare central green corridor.
Lendlease Managing Director, Communities, Matthew Mears said, “After years of in-depth planning and extensive consultation, today marks an incredibly important milestone for Lendlease and the Moreton Bay community.
“Our vision for Kinma Valley is to not only create a market leading sustainable community that meets the needs and aspirations of homebuyers but to build a sense of belonging and connection to our newest community.
“The natural aspects will be one of the biggest drawcards for home buyers with the development offering incredible views to the Glasshouse Mountains, family-friendly neighbourhoods and green open spaces.”
In a major collaboration, the masterplan was designed after extensive consultation, to consider all aspects of the future community with the views of local groups and community members incorporated into the final design.
With healthy outdoor living an important focus, the community has plans for 12 parks, several adventure playgrounds and more than six kilometres of walking and cycling paths, all interconnected with the extensive central nature reserve.
A vast variety of new homes will be available to suit a wide range of buyers, including first home buyers, young families, upgraders, and empty nesters. Larger lots, distinctive building materials, innovative street design and casual neighbourhood meeting spaces will be key features of the community.
An innovative community hub will offer convenience shopping and dining complementing the existing wide range of shopping and other services in the area.
The name Kinma comes from the Kabi Kabi First Nation Peoples language which translates to ‘awake,’ capturing the spirit of a community that promises new beginnings and the opportunity for happiness and wellbeing.
The first lots are expected to be released soon with initial civil works expected to commence in the coming months.
