Landcom is embracing the challenges that limit housing diversity and affordability through projects that demonstrate innovative approaches to its delivery.
The Schofields project is part of this innovation and will showcase the “missing middle” housing typologies that reflect the changing needs of our diverse communities including single people, retirees, couples with and without children, extended families and downsizers. Landcom will use this site to deliver a residential precinct offering housing diversity.
Located in Sydney’s North West makes the Schofields project ideal to also demonstrate the need for more liveable green streets that address the climatic effects of urban heat island. It will deliver a significant increase in green canopy compared with more traditional developments. The project also seeks to reinvent the road reserve with a focus on verges and landscaping that provides a cool, green and comfortable streetscape creating places for informal social interactions and incidental play. These become places where communities engage, are socially connected and gain a greater sense of belonging.
