New chapter, same commitment
I am very honoured and excited to have recently been appointed to head up Stockland’s Halcyon Communities across the country.
The legacy Dr Bevan Geissmann and Paul Melville have achieved for the lifestyle community market is without peer. This was evidenced at one of the first Halcyon events I had the privilege to attend - the Friends of Halcyon Referral Luncheon held in Brisbane in September.
It was wonderful to connect with so many Halcyon homeowners and home buyers as well as hear from a few of the charities the program has supported so generously over the years.
I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and talking to many of you, and I look forward to doing more of that as I visit all of our communities in the new year.
Over the past few months since Stockland and Halcyon joined forces, it has been incredibly exciting to get to know the Halcyon team and learn more about the business and how they have created such a valuable and well-respected brand.
Together we are focused on retaining the close relationship we have with all homeowners and will keep doing this incredible work as we create more communities across the country.
Having worked for Stockland for the past 16 years, it’s important to note the many similar values both companies share. The reason we acquired Halcyon is simple – they are the leading lifestyle community creator in Australia and as such, we see enormous value in retaining the Halcyon brand.
In fact, we will be rebranding Stockland’s two Thrive lifestyle communities in Nirimba on the Sunshine Coast and Berwick in Victoria to Halcyon. We are also excited to be launching Halcyon Promenade, located on the northside of Brisbane in Burpengary East.
Pre-sales have already been strong and construction will begin in 2022. We look forward to being able to announce other new communities across the country over the coming months.
For now, like many of you, I am excited for the borders opening to friends and family so we can all have a traditional Christmas and Aussie summer.
We wish you a very healthy, happy and safe Christmas and New Year.
