First homebuyers in the Northern Territory have a new benchmark in entry-level yet high-quality housing following the completion of new display homes at The Heights, Durack, adjacent to CDU’s Palmerston campus.

As one of Darwin’s newest residential developments, The Heights is helping to deliver housing affordability with the official release of its first “Lifestyle Housing” homes in partnership with Territory builder Vantage Homes.

House and land packages start from $495,000. Project Director of The Heights Mr Geoff Smith said the new homes formed part of developer CIC Australia’s commitment to delivering 5% of all new homes in the development to affordable housing.

“For quality and price, our first Lifestyle Housing homes are quite possibly the best homes on the Darwin property market for first homebuyers and people on moderate incomes,” Mr Smith said.

“The Territory Government has long been looking at ways to deliver high-quality affordable housing, and as part of the housing mix at The Heights, we’ve taken on the Government’s challenge and are now the first to deliver a lower cost product that is truly exceptional.”

The Heights, Durack, is a $450 million project by CIC Australia in collaboration with CDU.

The project ultimately will include 882 new homes, as well as parks, bike paths, walking tracks and a lakeside community centre.

More than 300 allotments have been purchased so far. For more information visit W: theheightsdurack.com.au
