Leading the way in medium-density housing for Hamilton
Spread across 136 hectares of freehold farmland in North-East Hamilton, Greenhill Park is home to Hamilton’s newest suburb, with 1600 residential properties planned over 15 years.
Greenhill Park is a large-scale medium-density housing area which includes a diverse range of housing types to ensure residents have access to a variety of choices in living arrangements. The integration of housing design with the surrounding streetscape and open space network will create a sense of place and a high quality, liveable neighbourhood.
Boffa Miskell was involved in the master planning and design philosophy for the overall development, providing planning, landscape architecture, and ecological input from conception through to implementation. Working with a large multi-disciplinary team, a complex suite of resource consents was obtained in October 2016. A focus on high-quality urban design has been at the core of each stage of this project.
“The scale of this project is unprecedented in the Waikato, and while this presented a number of challenges for the team, the opportunity to deliver Hamilton’s first significant medium density residential suburb was really motivating,” says Boffa Miskell planner, Dave Moule. “Greenhill Park will no doubt contribute positively to improving the quality of housing in the region and provide a broader range of housing choices to the community”.
With Greenhill Park, Chedworth Properties have adopted a bold, innovative approach that sets a new standard in urban design for residential development. Quality development is guaranteed through the application of design guidelines and a design review panel, complemented by high quality public amenities, including the use of environmentally sustainable stormwater solutions such as swales and wetlands.
Planning, Landscape Architecture, and Ecology inputs into resourcing consent applications and detailed design phase. We are also actively involved in on-going work as part of the detailed design phase to deliver high-quality landscape plans for the streetscape, open space networks, and development lots.
