Tract Consultants in collaboration with Villawood, Urban Pacific, Peet and VicUrban, have prepared the R2 Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) for a 455ha area of land located at Craigieburn.
The R2 PSP will provide the Growth Area Authority (GAA) with a comprehensive urban framework to facilitate successful urban development within Melbourne’s northern Growth Area.
The successful completion of R2 will provide for a new 15,000 person residential community consisting of approximately 5300 residential dwellings, with provision for associated retail and employment, government and non-government educational facilities and and local community facilities.
Tract’s Urban Design and Planning teams have worked in close collaboration to ensure that the R2 PSP the creates the foundations for successful design solutions that will ensure the creation of a successful and liverable new residential community.
The process was an iterative one, having commenced prior to the release of GAA PSP guidelines, the formalisation of the R2 PSP was both influenced by the draft guidelines and has helped inform the development of the present guidelines.
The R2 PSP has provided the broad scale foundation for number of related projects that Tract has also had involvement in, including:
- Craigieburn South Master Plan.
- Craigieburn North Master Plan.
- Peet Greenvale - Craigieburn Visioning Workshop.
