Civil construction has now commenced at Jackson Green – the new $150 million development in Clayton South set to encompass up to 350 new dwellings.
Kingston Mayor Cr Tamsin Bearsley attended the recent ‘sod turning’ ceremony and said the occasion highlights Cedar Woods’ and the City of Kingston’s shared commitment to Clayton South and transformational urban infill development.
"Jackson Green is a clear demonstration that smart urban renewal and appropriate infill development is the way of the future, particularly when the developer - as is the case with Cedar Woods - has an ongoing commitment to quality, affordability and sustainability," Cr Bearsley said.
Jackson Green's developer company Cedar Woods Properties Limited appointed Montdami Construction to undertake civil construction of the first five stages.
According to the developer, Jackson Green has met with high demand with a rapid succession of sales during the first four town home releases.

“Jackson Green provides buyers the opportunity to purchase in an architecturally designed master-planned community in Melbourne’s sought after sandbelt.
“At Jackson Green we have embodied all the ideals associated with life in the leafy south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne coupled with a diverse housing typology to meet the needs of a broad range of buyers,” he said.
Upon completion, the development will consist of a diverse range of housing options, ranging from one and two bedroom apartments, two, three and four bedroom town homes.
Future apartment and town home releases are planned at Jackson Green, with the park frontage Wattle Apartments due for release on 14 September and the next release of town homes scheduled later this year.
Jackson Green is located in Melbourne’s middle-ring south eastern suburbs and will be well serviced by existing infrastructure such as Monash University, Clayton Shopping Centre, two train stations, cafes, hospitals, and recreational trails.
Recently the state government commenced works on the $1.6 billion Caulfield to Dandenong project that will see the removal of nine level crossings on the Cranbourne - Pakenham train line.
