Darwin’s newest residential address adjacent to Palmerston campus is rapidly taking shape as the first residents prepare to move into The Heights, Durack.

With the first homes nearing completion, and as homebuyers continue to snap up new allotments as they are released, The Heights, Durack is already moving forward on expanding construction works in subsequent stages of the development.

Following the completion of civil construction in Stages 1 and 2 – including the creation of roads, reserves and community landscaping – similar civil works for Stages 3 and 4 are now underway, which will pave the way for more purchasers to begin building their homes in coming months.

Project Director of The Heights, Durack, Geoff Smith said construction was in full swing.

“There is plenty of activity on-site at the moment, including new home building and works on community services and facilities such as playgrounds, reserves, walkways and landscaping,” Mr Smith said.

“And we continue to be buoyed by land sales within The Heights. Blocks in Stage 5 were the latest to be released to the market last month and already they’re almost sold out.

“Due to demand, we’re now pushing ahead as fast as we can on civil construction works for Stages 3 and 4 of the development, with Stage 5 civil works to be brought forward too for likely commencement in coming weeks.”

Enviably located beside the university’s lake and boasting views of the Darwin CBD, The Heights, Durack is a $450 million project by CIC Australia.

Featuring a broad range of lot sizes ranging from 250 square metres to more than 850 square metres, the development is proving popular with homebuyers from young professionals and growing families, through to empty nesters and retirees.

Since the project was launched last year, more than 150 blocks have been sold in the development, which will ultimately comprise 882 new homes in addition to a community centre, parks, walking tracks and bike paths.
