It will complement the unique features of this iconic waterside locality, situated about 9 km south west of Melbourne CBD."Waterline Place is AVJennings' first major inner suburb infill project in Victoria for some time.

AVJennings Managing Director Peter Summers said, "The project will provide a significant increase and diversification in AVJennings’ Victorian business, and follows the recent announcement of the establishment of the Wollert JV involving some 2000 lots. Both transactions demonstrate the Company’s confidence in the sector."Mr Summers said the positive reaction to the recent market guidance of profit before tax in the order of $40 million of higher for the year to 30 June 2015 was pleasing and supported the Company's strategies adopted in recent years. He also noted that as the Waterline project is already underway, it was expected it will be a significant contributor to results over the next few years.
