The Project

Mixed use masterplan for the town centre of the ‘Altrove’ Residential Community, situated in the Schofields Precinct of the North West Growth Centre. The aim of the masterplan is to create a new urban hub offering a great place to live, work and recreate.

The proposals incorporate a mix of use including medium and high density residential, seniors housing, retail/ commercial space, community facilities, a sales information centre and public open space with a direct connection to the existing Schofields station.
