Unlocking a life of harmony: The benefits of living in a masterplanned community

14 February 2024

In the fabric of modern living, masterplanned communities emerge as vibrant threads, weaving convenience, sustainability, and community into the fabric of everyday life. These purposefully designed neighbourhoods, like Midtown MacPark, offer a host of benefits that go above and beyond the traditional concept of a residential area. Here’s a few reasons why living in a masterplanned community is the ultimate choice for a harmonious and fulfilling life. Masterplanned communities are not just created for the present; they are built with a vision for the future. The ongoing development and adaptability of these communities ensure that they remain vibrant and relevant for generations to come.

Midtown MacPark is a mixed tenure masterplan community proudly built by Frasers Property, who are currently celebrating 100 years of building stronger, smarter, happier neighbourhoods since 1924.

Thoughtful Design for Modern Living

Masterplanned communities are not merely collections of houses, townhomes and/or apartments; they are meticulously designed ecosystems where every element is intentional. From the placement of homes to the layout and variety of green spaces, to the amenities incorporated within, these communities are crafted for a seamless, modern lifestyle, meaning you can eat, sleep, work and play all without leaving your community. Like at Midtown where you have a range of open spaces, parks and playgrounds, a pay-as-you-go gym and pool, convenience shopping, cafes and take-away restaurants as well as a brand new state primary school and two childcare centres all within Midtown itself.

Community and Connection

At the heart of masterplanned communities is the fostering of a strong sense of community. With a variety of shared spaces, a community centre, community garden, pocket parks and children’s playgrounds, Midtown MacPark provides ample spaces and opportunities for residents to connect, fostering a close-kind neighbourhood where everyone feels at home.Dedicated Community Development Managers from both Frasers Property and Mission Australia work together with our residents to organise social events and gatherings to further strengthen the bonds among neighbours.

Amenities at Your Doorstep

Picture a life where you have the convenience of having a range of everyday essentials, recreational facilities, and green spaces all within arm's reach. Masterplanned communities bring convenience to your doorstep. From schools and childcare centres, cafes and retail stores, health and fitness facilities to open spaces for the kids to play, everything strategically located within your community.

At Midtown you will also have the benefit of everything Macquarie Park has to offer within a short walking distance of your new home. With an abundance of shopping, entertainment, recreation, healthcare, dining, education and employment opportunities, all nearby, you don’t need to leave the neighbourhood if you don’t want to.

A Green Lifestyle

Masterplanned communities, like Midtown MacPark, are designed with sustainability in mind. Green spaces, energy-efficient infrastructure, and a commitment to eco-friendly practices contribute to a more sustainable lifestyle. Living in harmony with nature becomes a daily reality.

Midtown MacPark has a 6-Star Green Star Community rating,and once complete, a 5-Star Green Star rating for each building. Green Star is a third party certification by the Green Building Council of Australia. This rating demonstrates world leadership in sustainability and the highest rating is 6 Stars.

Healthy Living Spaces

Wellness is woven into the fabric of masterplanned communities. Thoughtful landscaping, walking trails, and recreational areas that encourage an active lifestyle and social interactions with your neighbours. The emphasis on health extends to community programs and initiatives that promote overall well-being.

Education and Learning Opportunities

Access to quality education is often a hallmark of masterplanned communities. Proximity to schools and educational institutions ensures that families have convenient and reliable options for their children's learning journey. Within Midtown MacPark, you will have access to two new childcare centres, the first which will be operated by Montessori Academy, and a brand new public primary school. Just 600m down Herring Road is Macquarie University and nearby is an array of other primary and secondary schools, making Macquarie Park an education precinct like no other.

Value Appreciation

Investing in a home in a masterplanned community goes beyond the property itself. As these communities grow and flourish, property values can appreciate. The continuous development and enhancement of amenities contribute to a thriving community that stands the test of time.

In essence, living in a masterplanned community transcends the conventional idea of a residential area. It's an invitation to embrace a lifestyle where every element is purposefully chosen to create a harmonious and fulfilling environment.
