And really big at AVID Property Group’s $3 billion masterplanned community, Harmony, at Palmview, which will be home to Queensland’s first grand linear park.

Spanning more than 5ha and running the length of 10 football fields, the unusually flat development site was able to challenge traditional design concepts and deliver unprecedented open space and functionality to residents and wider community.

AVID Property Group general manager Bruce Harper said: “The concept of connectivity is thrown around so much in masterplanning, and we set ourselves and RPS, our urban design team, the challenge of really delivering on that for the benefit of Harmony’s future residents,.”

“Typically conventional design dictates a series of local parks dispersed around the community, which are often under-utilised by residents.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row unlock_row=”” row_height_percent=”0″ override_padding=”yes” h_padding=”2″ top_padding=”0″ bottom_padding=”0″ overlay_alpha=”100″ equal_height=”yes” gutter_size=”3″ shift_y=”0″ row_height_use_pixel=””][vc_column column_width_use_pixel=”yes” overlay_alpha=”50″ gutter_size=”3″ medium_width=”0″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ zoom_width=”0″ zoom_height=”0″ width=”1/1″][vc_single_image media=”50448″ media_lightbox=”yes” media_width_use_pixel=”yes” alignment=”center” media_title_uppercase=”” media_width_pixel=”800″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_height_percent=”0″ override_padding=”yes” h_padding=”2″ top_padding=”3″ bottom_padding=”3″ overlay_alpha=”100″ gutter_size=”3″ shift_y=”0″ row_height_use_pixel=””][vc_column column_width_use_pixel=”yes” overlay_alpha=”50″ gutter_size=”3″ medium_width=”0″ shift_x=”0″ shift_y=”0″ zoom_width=”0″ zoom_height=”0″ column_width_pixel=”800″][vc_column_text]But Mr Harper said the combination of the parks into one long linear space, provided a visual and physical connecting ‘green spine’ through the development that would deliver a range of passive and active spaces, making the linear park and the development unique.

“At Harmony more than 90 per cent of all resident will be within 250m from a local park and this also means we’ve been able to connect our future residents to Harmony’s 60km network of pedestrian path and cycle ways,” he said.

“The design encompasses key activation areas, including recreational zones for people to kick the football or run around, to quieter areas to relax and read a book or enjoy a picnic.

“What our grand linear park will offer is a clear reflection of the social and recreational needs of our buyers.”

RPS regional technical director — urban design, Peter Egerton, said Harmony was unique in its topography as the site was particularly flat, which removed a number of design limitations for the linear park.

“Most new sites for communities of this size, have hills and gullies, which dictate the design by the location of storm water, treatment and roadways,” Mr Egerton said.

“Harmony has an abundance of open space and types of open space, which will be a huge attraction for buyers.

“The removal of traditional design restrictions enabled the team to put forward a design that really exceeds expectations for activation and functionality for the community.”

Set on 378ha Harmony will deliver more than 4800 homes for 12,000 future residents as well as a town centre and 100ha of parklands,

With a development timeline of 15-20 years, AVID Property Group anticipate Harmony will create around 9000 jobs and the first land release will take 12 months to complete.”[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
