Preston Crossing Preston, VIC

Preston Crossing is a new residential neighbourhood defined by progressive design, community and a healthy environment. The development will deliver between 450 and 650 new 1, 2 and 3-bedroom dwellings across two sites (six lots) totalling 2.8 ha located within the Oakover Village precinct in Preston.

Our masterplan vision to create a local, connected and diverse community, is based around significant public realm improvements to existing streets and a new public realm network of safe streets and pedestrian links that encourage play and social engagement.

Hayball’s project covers two significant land parcels made up of 116 townhouses and 432 apartments across the two sites as well as significant place-making and landscape elements. These sustainable homes are designed to protect our environment, reduce living costs and support a healthy lifestyle.

The architectural approach takes cues from the local context, houses and gardens as well as the larger civic and early industrial brick buildings prevalent in this part of Preston. Pitched rooflines are reinterpreted through skillion townhouse forms, brick is used as a feature material threaded through the different buildings and detail is added with the fine metal and timber fences, balustrades and screens which pick up on the existing domestic details which surround the site.

Preston Crossing prioritises sustainable transport and high-performing built fabric to meet Greenstar and high energy rating benchmarks. The incorporation of a new pocket park space and landscaped pedestrian laneways will regreen the public realm.
