Suburban development pre-empts future legislation and goes all electric.

Dubbed as a development that is “good for humans, great for birds”, Kingloch Parade is surrounded by lush landscaping, with considered plant selection to foster native flora and fauna

Oz Property Group’s latest residential venture is closing in on 50% sold as interest continues to grow in the future-proof, 51-home community. Kingloch Parade adds another notch in the developers growing list of big and small projects across the city with sustainability at the forefront of the design.

Kingloch Parade, however goes even further to break down the buzzword of sustainability and provide tangible sustainable measures for future residents - which was no small feat according to Oz Property Group Marketing and Sales Manager, Scott Williams. 

“Achieving a 7-Star energy rating took a lot of consideration with all aspects of design playing a part,” he says. 

“The size and function of each room, the type of building materials, the specification of each building's openings and the orientation of each individual home are all carefully designed into every floorplan to make them as energy efficient as possible," said Williams. 

Perhaps even more importantly, Kingloch Parade is fully electric, something the developer believes will soon be mandatory for all new developments. It will utilise the latest, cutting edge appliances for cooking, hot water and heating to ensure all homes are future-proof – and without a gas bill. Saving residents up to $700 annually. 

These considerations also helped Kingloch Parade achieve a BESS Score of 70 per cent, which equates to BESS design ‘excellence’, a voluntary commitment that goes beyond ticking the minimum requirements.

BESS is especially important as it ranks how sustainable the design is as a whole, scoring areas such as energy, water, waste and urban ecology.

Dubbed as a development that is “good for humans, great for birds”, Kingloch Parade is surrounded by lush landscaping, with considered plant selection to foster native flora and fauna.

While underneath the surface, swales and tree pits will passively irrigate the many plants and trees to create local biodiversity and feed the native birdlife. 

 

The largest swale is called the Blue Green Spine, which will cut right through the middle of the site, creating a sustainable water management system but also a practical and beautiful space for residents. 

Made for all of Melbourne’s weather conditions, solar panels will be provided as standard, generating over a quarter of the energy demand for the development.

In collaboration with DKO, SLAB and REALM Studios, Kingloch Parade lands on the old site of Wantirna Heights School, a piece of history that Oz Property Group were keen to honour. 

“We know we’re building on a place that was very important to the community, so we wanted to build something that was future proof and would stand the test of time, ” added Williams.
