Soho Village proves that housing diversity and density, and the creation of a 20-minute neighbourhood is commercially achievable in Australia’s growth suburbs. It has become a test case for councils on how to deliver mixed-use projects into the future
The development features a small, pedestrian-friendly main street and village square lined with restaurants and a range of community amenities including a community conference centre that can be hired for community and business events. This mix of uses extends street activation times, increasing the safety of the precinct due to the constant presence of people and the passive surveillance provided by the apartments and townhouses.
With a lack of medium to high-density housing options throughout Point Cook, the site presented the opportunity to improve housing diversity while simultaneously maximising yield.
The mixed use urban quarter is an exemplar of a contemporary compact village centre, containing many of the essential daily needs with a diverse range of housing types and live work spaces. The project is providing dearly needed urban development industry leadership.
