There are a lot of advance environmental technologies available from Japan. Therefore, we hope that some of the Japanese advance technology will be used for this new green city in Australia.
According to The Australian Financial Review today, Stockland's $5 billion Caloundra South community (in QLD) will grow to house more than 50,000 residents and rival the size of Maroochydore, Hervey Bay or Gladstone within three decades. But a swag of innovative building practices, water management systems and an environmentally efficient approach to design, development and construction will set the coastal community apart as Australia's first 6-star, Green Star-rated city.
The development will set a new benchmark for sustainable development in Australia, according GBCA chief executive Romilly Madew.
"Stockland's 6 Star accreditation demonstrates that it is possible to undertake a development of unprecedented scale and achieve world-class environmental and social outcomes," Ms Madew said.
Set on 2310 hectares, the community is the largest mixed-use development developed by a single owner in Australia. It is also Stockland's largest project.
As part of the Green Star rating process, Stockland has decided on the most advanced water reticulation, filtration, storage and treatment system ever installed in an Australian city.
Stockland has also developed a Caloundra South economic development strategy targeting the creation of 19,500 direct jobs and long-term local employment opportunities.
