RIVERSIDE PRECINCT

Prime land available for industrial, commercial, residential, entertainment and an extensive range of mixed use in Riverside Park continues to draw investors and developers.

In 2014, Halls Properties commenced with planning of Phase 3 of this popular precinct and obtained approval for four new townships, Riverside Extension 27, 28, 29 and 30.  Extension 27 has been divided into four townships, namely Extensions 31 to 34 and Extension 28 was divided into Extensions 35 and 36.  The phasing of Extensions 29 and 30 is currently underway.
