New Epping is a $2 billion mixed-use precinct that will transform a disused landfill and quarry site into a vibrant city within the suburbs.
In close collaboration with the City of Whittlesea, Riverlee is undertaking one of Australia’s most ambitious urban renewal projects, rezoning a 51-hectare industrial site to mixed-use. Stage 1 of the development includes the new Northern Private Hospital, 151 affordable homes, along with retail and commercial end uses.
The new Northern Private Hospital, operated by Ramsay Healthcare, will deliver comprehensive medical, surgical, and mental health services, which are much needed to cater for the region’s growing population – forecast to increase by 10 per cent annually over the next five years. Co-located adjacent to the Northern Hospital, the New Epping 7 hectare heath, wellness and knowledge precinct is the largest in the region.
Expressing Riverlee’s commitment to people-centred design, New Epping will offer over 2,000 townhouses and apartments connected by green spaces, supported with community amenities including restaurants, cafes and retail spaces. The precinct’s commercial offering will feature a business park and a collection of multi-level office complexes suitable for a diverse range of businesses.
The site’s 11 hectare green spine, including a natural lake and a stretch of Edgars Creek will be regenerated, with parks and a 3.2 kilometre walking and running loop. Central to the site’s evolution, these conservation efforts will protect existing natural ecosystems and wildlife.
Investing $1.2 billion of private capital to realise this project, New Epping demonstrates Riverlee’s ongoing commitment to the region and our broader mission to deliver built environments that positively impact the wider community.
