Greenbough Residential Estate








The Greenbough residential estate is located on the North Shore in Greenhithe.  This 41-unit comprehensive residential development comprises freestanding and duplex houses set on compact freehold sites. 

The landscape character of the area, the steep topography of the land, and the natural waterways which traversed the site provided challenges from an urban design and engineering design perspective.  The variation of site sizes and the inclusion of areas of green open space within the subdivision were key design features employed to integrate this medium-density residential development into the traditional ‘house and garden’ landscape character prevalent within the Greenhithe area.  Significant planting was undertaken within the reserve areas of the subdivision to enhance visual amenity and ecological values and mitigate the effects of the landform modification and vegetation alteration that was required to facilitate this comprehensive residential development.
