Drawing strong inspiration from connection to country, the adjacent Belconnen Fresh Food Markets, and Belconnen Town Centre’s Lake Ginninderra, Eden is a home created for sustainable living, set within an urban forest and outfitted with sky-high urban amenity. Mounded native planting beds and leafy forest trees are maximised at all levels of the development, including a deep soil planting zone right through the central courtyard. Winding paths and leafy, urban breakout nooks transverse the landscape master plan, connecting the 4 10-storey apartment blocks, each with an array of residential amenities on their rooftops. The rooftops are programmed with a flexible yoga and workout area, pet park, outdoor entertainment and dining spaces, kitchens and grills, sun lounges, undercover laundry with natural clothes drying, indoor and outdoor gyms, quiet workspaces, business lounge, flexible use rooms, community gardens, and urban farming infrastructure.
Recycled and locally sourced natural materials, such as decorative rocks and nursery grown native plants are paired with sustainability measures across the site, such as solar panels, electrical vehicle charging stations, solar access, cross-ventilation, and neutralised drainage. The development includes improvement of pedestrian accessibility in the surrounding verges, with refurbished paving and tree plantings to the verges interfacing the markets, and retention of all mature canopy trees along Benjamin Way.
