Multiple stages of medium density product within the ‘Altrove’ residential community, along with associated streets and infrastructure. The Altrove masterplan is circa 20 hectares and accommodates over 300 land lots, over 300 town home lots and a town centre with surrounding high-density apartment sites.  Town home sites have been developed in a series of stages with circa 30 – 60 lots in each stage, and phased construction within each stage to suit settlement timing.
