One of the most popular communities for first home buyers in Sydney, Willowdale at Denham Court, has been accredited by the Green Building Council of Australia. (GBCA) for world-leading design excellence, innovation and environmental stewardship and as a centre for future economic prosperity and liveability. 

The GBCA has awarded Stockland’s Willowdale residential development with the highly coveted and internationally-recognised 6 Star Green Star – Communities rating, which recognises world leadership across a wide range of environmental, economic and social sustainability measures. The GBCA has also awarded the new Willowdale Retirement Village with a 4 Star Green Star – Design and As Built rating.


In addition to Willowdale, Stockland has achieved 5 or 6 Star Green Star – Community ratings at six other residential developments throughout Australia. This includes 6 Star ratings awarded to its new green cities of Aura on the Sunshine Coast and Cloverton in northern Melbourne, making Stockland Australia’s leading developer of Green Star residential communities.

One of the greatest strengths of the Willowdale masterplanned community, and fundamental to its achievement of the 6 Star rating, is its liveability. Willowdale is providing a range of housing options to appeal to a diverse range of buyers, and making a marked impact on affordability in Sydney by providing home sites and new townhouses below the comparable median prices of surrounding suburbs.

“Everything that goes into our Green Star rating - more green spaces with better and safer parks and playgrounds; more sustainable, high-quality materials selection; or the connectedness and walkability of our neighbourhoods - makes Willowdale a better place and a better way to live." - Gavin Tonnet, General Manager Residential at Stockland
