Located in the suburb of Shaw, adjacent to the popular areas of Mount Louisa and Kirwan, Greater Ascot is in the perfect location for growth. Surrounded by the Ring Road, getting around Townsville is easy. The CBD is only 13km's away, and within an 8km radius is Lavarack Barracks, James Cook University, Townsville Hospital, Riverway Leisure Precinct, Willows Shopping Centre, Stockland Shopping Centre, 1300 Smiles Stadium and numerous daycares, primary and secondary schools.
Greater Ascot over the next 10 years will be home to 7000 residents.
As the estate and community grows so too will the immediate amenities.
A local suburban shopping precinct will be created, access to the Bohle River frontage will be developed, further green space for sporting fields, a daycare and school will also be included in the masterplan.
Laneways are transition places - where our homes meet the outside world and where we stop and share moments together with our community. They are the perfect place to introduce yourself to your neighbours, have a street social or another space for kids to play in.
At Greater Ascot we believe laneways are an institution that should be revered. In designing this feature we hope to hand back a host of dreams to the children of tomorrow.
You will notice when driving around Greater Ascot our diverse housing options. We are proud to incorporate a point of difference to the estate and believe these enhance the lifestyle of living here.
Together with our building partners and designers, the neighbourhood is intended to engage the community. Houses will have verandahs again, front fences will be low to enable street visibility, and rear laneways will see kids playing together in close proximity to their homes.
