Everyone knows that “from little things, big things grow” – and nowhere will that be truer than at The Glades at Byford.
The Glades will grow to become the largest new masterplanned community in the south-eastern corridor of Perth.
It will eventually be home to 10,000 people, with a village centre, a primary school, a proposed Catholic Kindergarten to Year 12 school and a senior high school. It will offer a diverse range of homesites to suit everyone from singles to families and empty nesters, creating a thriving community.
At the heart of everything will be the village centre, a rich and vibrant setting for local interaction. It will be somewhere to drop in for a quick catch-up over coffee or to pick up a few last-minute things for lunch. Because it has been designed as an intimate neighbourhood, the village centre will be within easy reach of every one of the 3,500 homesites, never more than a 15 minute stroll away.
The Glades takes its name from the two natural creeks that form the basis of the long corridors of parkland at the heart of the development. These "glades" of parkland will feature walking and cycling paths as well as activity stations dotted throughout. Percy's Adventure Playground, the first of these special activity areas, was opened in May 2010.
More than 10% of The Glades will be public open space, with corridors of natural pathways and cycle routes integrating everything both within The Glades and with Byford Town Centre.
The natural environment has been considered in every aspect of the design, from the retention of existing trees, enhancing the natural waterways to provide a habitat for local fauna and embracing the latest technology in water sensitive urban design.
Rainwater tanks are provided with every lot at The Glades, and will be connected to the washing machine and toilet, along with water sensitive front gardens included with every lot purchased.
