McGregor Coxall, Hill Thalis Architects and Candalepas Associates Architects developed the current Masterplan for the Little Bay Cove site. Current planning controls allow for the development of 450 dwellings with building heights of mostly up to 12m and on two lots up to 18m; 226 of these dwellings have already been built.
Located at Little Bay on a contaminated 17ha former brownfields site, the Masterplan provides for a diverse range of housing types on a regular street grid that responds to the coastal topography and environment. The landscaping concept, completed in 2015, features a large central detention pond and wetland system located alongside a public park delivering a fully integrated water sensitive urban design framework. Roads are designed as biostreets filtering water at the pollutant source prior to discharge into the wetland. Existing Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub, deposits of Miocene geology and ochre earths of significance to local Aboriginal people have been protected.
