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.
