Location Cranbourne East
Project Type Green field site development
MECENE Urban Design had an opportunity to peer review latest stages of the land subdivision of Peet Limited’s Livingston community in Cranbourne East. A large portion of Livingston has already been developed in accordance with the existing development plan. A minor redesign has been completed for the remaining stages within this project, which included a revised street grid and a detailed design for the medium density and community facility sites – designed to improve the neighbourly feel and connectivity through the precinct.
Urban Design challenges for this project were to create a pleasant, liveable environment with the point of difference in delivering unique neighbourhoods while creating provisions for community infrastructure such as schools and community facilities and all well connected and approachable by various modes of transport. Creation of walkable neighbourhoods and green interfaces was the important aspect of current design.
