Stamford Park Redevelopment

Stamford Park - A living jewel in the City of Knox

Occupying 45 hectares of natural habitat, waterways and open space, Stamford Park is being developed into a place of true beauty – a place where people can live, work, play and enjoy life.

Stamford Park is also a place of historical significance. At the heart of Stamford Park is the Stamford Park Homestead, surrounded by its exotic Gardens. Built in 1882 by Edward Row, this living link to early European settlement is one of the last remaining 19th Century country Homesteads in Knox and the region. The development will see the Homestead restored and sympathetically expanded to include a premier restaurant and dining experience.

Council Vision. Community Aspiration.

Stamford Park encompasses four unique but integrated precincts: the Historic Precinct, Park Precinct, Commercial Precinct and the Residential Precinct. Knox City Council is responsible for the Master Plan and integrating these precincts in line with one overarching vision.

Knox City Council’s vision will see Stamford Park transformed into a beautiful and significant urban place of local, national and international standing, in keeping with the community’s passion for the area.

For residents and visitors alike, Stamford Park will offer country living and an authentic values based lifestyle, 28 kilometres south east of Melbourne’s CBD and en route to the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges Stamford Park will become one of Australia’s most sought-after locations for generations to come.

Project Summary

Following successful Master planning and land rezoning phases between 2010 to 2014, the Stamford Park Development has now moved to the delivery phase. The Stamford Park Commercial Estate known as Enterprise Business Park provides a range of business premises from Corporate Headquarters to smaller warehouse/office premises. The development of a 6.5 hectare residential estate known as Waterleais underway and will comprise around 190 dwellings. The residential Estate is being developed by Stockland will be Knox’s first Greenstar residential community. The development will offer a range of homes and allotment sizes catering for wide range of needs. The net proceeds from the sale have enabled Council to fund the renovation of the historic 1880’s Stamford Park Homestead and Gardens and as well as the design and construction of the Stamford Park Parklands (Stamford Park Concept Masterplan Report 02 June 2017 - PDF 10.2MB).

Stamford Park 6 Star Green Star Residential Community

Stockland’s new development within the Stamford Park Precinct has been named Waterlea Rowville, and site works are progressing well. Waterlea Rowville has been recognised as a 6 Star Green Star Community by the Green Building Council of Australia. This means the community will be developed to industry leading environmental and liveability standards. As the Waterlea Rowville community develops, Stockland will be delivering two unique park spaces as well as walkable pocket parks accessible to all in the community and will provide a seamless integration to the planned Knox City Council parkland works.
