First homes to be built at Johnston Ridge
The homes will be the first built in the new Johnston Ridge development, nestled between Rosebery and the Stuart Highway.
The Northern Territory Government issued titles for the lots in January marking the final step for soon-to-be residents to start construction.
For Casey McDonnell and Kelly Hedger it marks the start of a new chapter in their lives.
“We’ve always wanted to build,” Mr McDonnell said.
“Kelly’s an architect so we’ve designed many dream homes in our heads, drawing ideas from holidays in Asia, and now we can really pursue it with our new block.”
Mr McDonnell and Miss Hedger purchased a 1020 square metre block as part of the Freeman release in May 2012.
The Moulden couple, who plan to start construction in April, were sold on the land sizes at Johnston Ridge and its proximity to the centre of Palmerston and Stuart Highway.
Urbex General Manager Wayne Rex said it’s a momentous step forward for the project.
“Our team has worked diligently to see these 40 Territory families get their titles on time as promised and on the road to building their new homes,” he said.
“It’s a significant milestone for the project, as these families foster the Johnston Ridge community and fulfil our vision of a neighbourhood with flexibility, diversity and room for growth.”
When complete Johnston Ridge will feature 284 mixed lots of single and multiple dwelling homes with single dwelling lots ranging from 607sqm to more than 1900sqm.
More than eight hectares of the suburb is dedicated to parklands and conservation of the natural environment.
Territorians looking to buy land in Johnston Ridge are able to view the scaled model, development plans and the vision for Johnston Ridge at the Urbex Realty, Sales and Information Centre at 18 Cavenagh Street, Darwin.
