OMP were lead consultants in the preparation of a detailed masterplan for a new village with 1600 homes on 21 hectares/ 52 acres of green field site in leafy suburbia. The principle collaborators were Metropolitan Workshop, a practice that OMP have worked successfully with on a number of Urban Design projects, the site is situated between a railway line, a golf course and a main arterial route to the City centre with wonderful sea views to the east and mountain views to the west. The Masterplan proposes a mixed use commercial core beside a new rail station and public transport interchange in the north eastern corner of the site.
A Street based Neighbourhood Centre and Village Square is located in the south western side of the site and these principle facilities are linked by a series of green routes, linear parkways and tree lined boulevards. A new Linear Public Park is situated along the eastern boundary overlooking the Golf Course and is supervised by high density apartments orientated to take full advantage of the sea views. There are five residential clusters in the development with high/medium density housing in the northern sector of the site and lower density family housing sited on the southern side of the Village.
