Back in 1999, Amex saw the growth potential for Baldivis in Perth’s south west development corridor and purchased 61 hectares of magnificent undulating land with spectacular views to the hills. Amex’s vision was to develop the premium residential estate in Baldivis benchmarked by high quality parklands, public spaces and built form construction.
Now some 15 years on, the initial vision has become a reality. Tuart Ridge has been established as one of the leading estates in this very competitive region, and widely recognised as having the best open space areas in Baldivis.
Located in the City of Rockingham, some 40 km’s south of the Perth CBD, Tuart Ridge has convenient access to both local and regional retail, commercial, educational and healthcare facilities, with the popular Rockingham waterfront café / restaurant precinct only 10 minutes away.
With an overall development potential for over 650 residential lots, construction commenced in late 2006 with the first land sales completed in mid 2007.
The urban design for Tuart Ridge has limited changes to the natural undulations of the site, providing spectacular views of the Perth hills for most lots on the estate, and has enabled preservation of a number of giant tuart trees that have become a feature of the development. Amex has invested significantly in extensive public parklands, artwork and community amenities, now recognised as the best in the Baldivis area.
A key feature of Amex’s development approach is proactive consultation with the community, adjoining developers, the City of Rockingham and a range of Government agencies. This is demonstrated by the effort applied to the concept planning of the Village Centre, which will be the hub of the Tuart Ridge community and will consist of a Primary School, retail centre, residential lots and public areas integrated into an urban environment.
To ensure we meet the specific demands of the market, Amex works closely with a number of Perth’s leading builders to fully understand the range of housing products available and the consumer’s requirements for appropriately sized lots. This has resulted in all development staging and lot sizing being carefully assessed, and in many instances modified to better cater for the needs of our buyers.
Extensive design guidelines and covenants have seen the highest quality of homes built on the estate, and have attracted a premium display village of 10 of Perth’s leading builders.
