Registrations for the highly anticipated Ginninderry project will open tomorrow morning from 9am as more than 100 blocks of land, architect-designed flexi-living and house-and-land packages go on sale in the new ACT suburb of Strathnairn.

The first release for the Ginninderry project, a joint venture between Riverview Developments and the ACT Government, will feature 57 blocks of land, 17 flexi-living homes and a range of house-and-land packages released to the market.

Prices for land at Ginninderry will range from just $590 to $792 per square metre, with prices typically ranging from $230,000-$360,000 for single dwelling blocks.

Riverview Developments Managing Director David Maxwell said a range of housing options were being released to cater for all levels of the market.

“Our decisions around housing options at Ginninderry both in the short and long term have been based off offering a product range that will suit all levels of the market,” Maxwell said. “As part of the first release for Stage 1 we believe the mix blocks of land, house and land packages and our unique Flexi-living series will provide something for everyone.

“It’s an exciting day for everyone that has been involved in the project across the last decade.

“Our vision is to create a sustainable community of international significance right here in the Canberra region and tomorrow is a significant milestone in this journey.”

Land Development Agency CEO David Dawes said Ginninderry would give ACT home buyers additional lifestyle choices.

“The ACT Government is working to ensure as many people as possible can buy their own homes in areas where amenities, services and access to open space contribute to the high quality of life we enjoy here,” Mr Dawes said.

Ginninderry, ACT’s first 6-star Green Star development, has a strong focus on sustainability and the first stage will include mandatory requirements for home energy systems that includes solar panels, electrical household appliances and a demand management systems to significantly reduce ongoing energy bills whilst ensuring comfortable houses.

The Link, a multi-purpose community centre being opened tonight by ACT Minister for the Arts and Community Events Gordon Ramsay, provides the first example of Ginninderry’s commitment to sustainability and the environment.

Made from a significant proportion of recycled content, The Link, has been designed to complement the rural character of the surrounding buildings of Strathnairn and the overall vision for the emerging Ginninderry community.

“The Link will provide spaces for training, community gatherings and other project initiatives, as well as additional exhibition spaces for the Strathnairn arts community,” Mr Maxwell said.

“We are really happy with The Link and believe it shows future residents of Ginninderry what they can do to capitalise on the sustainability advantages available to them.”

The new suburb of Strathnairn will be the first in the master planned community of Ginninderry that will evolve over the next 30 years.

Ginninderry will consist of four suburbs – three in the ACT and one in New South Wales (subject to rezoning approval), with the first of these being Strathnairn and Macnamara.

With the potential to deliver up to 11,500 new homes accommodating about 30,000 people, it will set a new benchmark in liveability by building a community that provides diverse, affordable and inclusive places to live, work and play.

A range of public information sessions will be held between 9am-4pm on both Saturday and Sunday (8 and 9 April) this weekend.

Along with registrations opening from 9am on Saturday, members of the public will be able to get more information about the buying process, learn more about the sustainability features at Ginninderry and ask questions about conservation management.

There will also be a variety of kids’ activities across the weekend including seed planting, giant board games, and a community art wall.
