Stockland Halcyon continues its expansion in Victoria with four new communities now in market, following the success of Halcyon Berwick, which only has display homes left to sell.

Halcyon Berwick was launched in 2021 and was Stockland’s first land lease community designed for over 55s in Victoria.

Buyers have already shown strong interest in Stockland Halcyon Evergreen (Clyde in Melbourne’s southeast) and Halcyon Horizon (located in Armstrong Creek which is between Geelong CBD and Torquay), with the first stages of their releases nearly sold out.

Stockland Halcyon Evergreen, which is expected to comprise close to 300 homes, is designed to take in the natural bush surrounds within the Stockland Evergreen masterplanned community, while Stockland Halcyon Horizon is expected to comprise around 230 homes and is located a short drive from some of Australia’s favourite beaches including Torquay, Jan Juc and Bells Beach.

At Stockland Halcyon, each community offers homeowners low maintenance living in architecturally designed homes, with the convenience of central amenities which may include a pool, fully equipped gym, health and wellness centre, recreational clubhouse and bar facilities, cinemas, walking tracks, bowling greens, pickleball courts, and a shared community Tesla car.

Stockland Halcyon Victoria General Manager, James Westh, said this recent success has been driven by Victorian buyers resonating with the Halcyon lifestyle.

“As awareness of this lifestyle grows, more buyers are seeking to secure their opportunity to enjoy the benefits of living in a premium community designed for their needs,” Mr Westh said.

“Our expansion in Victoria is forging ahead with another two new developments, Halcyon Highlands and Halcyon Jardin, recently commencing earthworks and the first releases for both these communities now in market.”

Halcyon Highlands is in the Stockland Highlands community, 30 kilometres north of the Melbourne CBD in Mickleham and is expected to include around 240 low maintenance and architecturally designed homes close to shopping precincts, parklands, and golf courses upon completion.

In addition, Halcyon Jardin, located approximately 46 kilometres southeast of the Melbourne CBD in Clyde North, is expected to see close to 280 homes built near the St Germain town centre. This $203 million development will feature green spaces and social areas to help foster social connections.

“The new developments have been met with strong interest as homeowners can enjoy a rewarding lifestyle, with carefully designed spaces and resort quality facilities that create thriving communities,” said Mr Westh.

“Our Halcyon communities are clearly hitting the mark with Victorians who are looking for high quality, low maintenance living in one of our communities.”

There are currently 17 Stockland Halcyon communities – either established or in development – across Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Moreton Bay, Logan, as well as in Victoria.

Mr Westh said the land lease model is providing an alternative housing option, giving customers the opportunity to free up capital, as well as enjoy a connected and enhanced lifestyle.

He said a key differentiator is the financial model that Stockland Halcyon communities offer as there are no hidden costs, stamp duty or deferred management fees and homeowners keep 100% of the capital gains.
