Hundreds of affordable land allotments to be released in Adelaide’s north

A number of new affordable land allotments are set to become available at Playford Alive in Munno Para.

Dozens of new affordable land allotments are set to become available at Playford Alive this week, marking a significant step in the development of the northern Adelaide community.

A total of 282 land allotments are being crafted within the Newton Boulevard estate at Munno Para, with 161 of these set to be sold at or below the affordable price point for land, currently set at $187,650.

The initial release will consist of 18 allotments situated on the southern side of Newton Boulevard, with prices starting from a modest $157,500. These plots offer varying sizes, ranging from 255m2 up to a spacious 688m2, and come equipped with rear driveway options and laneway access.

Following this first release, an additional 22 allotments are scheduled to be made available for purchase in the coming weeks.

“Playford Alive offers a fantastic lifestyle to residents because it is delivering a connected and sustainable community surrounded by amenity including schools, a medical centre, railway station, wetlands, parklands and a thriving town centre,” Glenn Docherty, City of Playford Mayor, says.

“We know that Playford is a popular destination for people looking to build their own homes and this latest release will provide more families the chance to call the north home.”

The project is a joint effort between Renewal SA, the South Australian Housing Authority, and the City of Playford, contributing to Playford Alive’s standing as one of Australia’s most expansive urban renewal projects.

Residents of the Newton Boulevard stage will benefit from Renewal SA’s recently introduced sustainability guidelines, promoting environmentally conscious living through features such as all-electric homes and mandated lighter-coloured roofs. These initiatives combat the urban heat island effect and bolster energy efficiency within the community.

Prospective buyers will have the opportunity to explore a diverse range of housing designs from prominent builders, including Distinctive Homes, Rivergum Homes, Weeks Homes, Sterling Homes, Hickinbotham, Stateman Homes, and SA Housing Centre.

Earthworks for the allotments within the Newton Boulevard estate are projected to conclude by October 2024, paving the way for home construction to commence in the first quarter of 2025. As a result, the first residents are expected to settle into their new homes by mid-2026.

In a parallel development, construction is set to commence next month on the extension of Newton Boulevard westward, connecting it with Stebonheath Road. This extension is anticipated to alleviate traffic congestion on nearby Curtis Road, with the road expected to be open to traffic by early 2025.

“Homes and land are critical, but it’s the supporting infrastructure and amenity that makes a community hum, and it’s why master planning a community like Playford Alive is so important,” Shane Wingard, Renewal SA Executive Director, Residential Project Delivery and Assets, says.

“The extension of Newton Boulevard will provide better connections for residents across the suburb including the creation of a seamless corridor through to Mark Oliphant College and the Munno Para Railway Station.”
