Councillors and officials of the Moreton Bay Regional Council had the opportunity to familiarise themselves with Heritage Pacific’s award winning Forest Ridge community in Narangba this week.
Forest Ridge was the recipient of the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Queensland Award for Best Masterplanned Development and the 2008 Property Council of Australia Innovation and Excellence Award for Best Residential Development in May.
Councillors Mike Charlton, Julie Greer, Bob Millar, James Houghton and Adrian Raedel along with staff of the newly formed Council, toured the site to have a first hand look at the community.
Project Manager, Jeremy Bell said we are proud at what we have achieved at Forest Ridge and we believe it was perfect timing, following the Council amalgamation, to show our local Councillors and council staff the benefits of living in a masterplanned community like Forest Ridge.”
“Tours like this is something that we see as beneficial to both the Council and to Heritage Pacific, it gives us an opportunity to not only answer questions, but also an opportunity to showcase the award winning community.” Councillor Mike Charlton, who took part in the tour congratulated Heritage Pacific on their two recent awards. “I believe masterplanned communities proved an excellent result for prospective residents, Heritage Pacific has produced a wonderful community which is reflected in the awards that have been deservedly won by Forest Ridge.”
Forest Ridge has been the flagship community for Heritage Pacific for more then 15 years and in that time we have welcomed nearly 1,700 families.
Since 1987, Heritage Pacific has welcomed more than 10,000 families to over 25 communities throughout South-East Queensland and has established one of the country’s fastest-growing home-building businesses.
Heritage Pacific has also developed a portfolio of commercial and retail assets valued at more than $350 million and built an established funds management business.
