LAND sales at Bushmead are attracting some interest with 91 blocks already sold.
Developer Cedar Woods officially opened a sales office at Bushmead in June.
The opening was attended by more than 150 people with six lots sold during that weekend.
Cedar Woods Chairman Bill Hames attended the opening where a plaque was unveiled.
A Cedar Woods spokeswoman said Bushmead was one of the few residential infills in the eastern suburbs.
Earlier this year the estate was awarded the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s 6-leaf enviro-development accreditation and recognised as an endorsed waterwise development by the Water Corporation.
Set on a former rifle range Bushmead will become a 600-lot estate surrounded by 185ha of bushland.
City of Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright said the development had an environmentally sustainable focus and was designed to conserve the surrounding flora and fauna.
“Two-thirds of Bushmead will be preserved as a conservation site, making sure the natural environment in the area is protected and enhanced,” he said.
Just 16km from the Perth, 5-10 minutes from Midland, and nearby to the Swan Valley, Bushmead is expected to have 2000 residents in the next 10 years.
