PHASE TWO LIGHTS UP
Phase two of the $500 million Ecco Ripley development has opened for registrations following a strong run of sales this year.
Developed by Sekisui House, Ecco Ripley has already yielded more than $12.5 million of sales in the first quarter with nearly 80 per cent owner-occupiers. Phase two – Lighthaven – marks the second major phase of the development, offering 300sq m to 450sq m lots with buyers given the option to build a home designed by Sekisui House or contract a builder of their choice.
Ecco Ripley sales manager Scott Blaney said Lighthaven was expected to continue the momentum from the first phase “Brooking Rise” and benefit from its location, a short walk to the $1.5 billion Ripley Town Centre.
“With the first stage of the Town Centre well under way, Ecco Ripley is becoming increasingly sought-after by homebuyers,” Mr Blaney said. The $40 million first stage of the Town Centre is scheduled to be completed early 2018.
“Lighthaven will offer the closest housing to the Town Centre within the entire Ecco Ripley masterplanned community, and it offers the last opportunity to purchase land before the Town Centre opens,” Mr Blaney said.
“Buyers are drawn by diversity in product choice and the sustainability of Ecco Ripley which is the only community in the greater Ipswich area to achieve a Five Star Green Star Communities rating.” Ecco Ripley is being developed by Sekisui House, one of the world’s largest residential groups known for taking a holistic approach to community design.
More than 750 residents presently live at Ecco Ripley or are in the process of building.
“We’re expecting Lighthaven to become a lifestyle address for everyone from first-home buyers, second-plus home buyers and downsizers,” Mr Blaney said.
Lighthaven will be surrounded by more than 10ha of open space with homes no more than 200m from parks and open space.
Sekisui House has just launched its latest stage at Ecco Ripley called Lighthaven.
