23 January 2019 $15 million northern beaches building boom gathers pace

The building boom is providing much-needed employment for the city’s trade services industry and a spark of optimism for the property market as it continues to battle with the recent cyclical downturn.

The Northern Suburbs are appealing to a new breed of buyer, who are attracted by the development of new homes on well-designed blocks, along with the easy access to beaches, local infrastructure and employment hubs.

Land in this prestigious location is in short supply, and the masterplanned community of Breezes Muirhead is the last remaining opportunity for buyers to purchase ready to build blocks in the northern suburbs of Darwin.

Recently awarded Darwin’s best residential development at the 2018 NT UDIA Awards for Excellence, this 1,150 lot development features blocks ranging from 450 to 5,980 square metres. The project is being marketed by property services group Oliver Hume from the land sales centre on the corner of Asche and Fuhrmann St.

Oliver Hume Sales Manager Kevin Williams said it was typical of a city the size of Darwin to have a number of smaller internal markets with different levels of demand and price growth at any one time.

‘The north of Darwin is completely different to the inner city, established homes or southern corridor markets,” he said. “The lifestyle, housing and demand drivers are very distinct which is why we are seeing more consistent growth in the north,’ said Mr Williams.

‘People are also attracted to activity and energy and when you drive around the area you really get a sense that something special is being created by all the new construction.

‘Breezes Muirhead is already 90 per cent settled, with a range of lot sizes still available on market in the final stage.

‘Of these lots there is a limited selection of acreage blocks averaging 4,000 square metres. All of our acreage blocks are fully serviced with town water, sewerage, underground power, drainage and bitumen roads.’

DHA’s Senior Development Manager, Chris Grimm said a large emphasis was also placed on developing a sense of community, which is why Breezes Muirhead features custom-designed parks and exercise spaces along with a calendar of regular events for residents and locals alike to enjoy.
