Commencing construction in 2023, Sekisui House will deliver more than 450 properties, with the majority expected to offer its flagship housing product SHAWOOD.

CEO of Residential Communities & Home Building at Sekisui House Australia, Sean Osawa, said: "We are excited to be expanding to another site along New South Wales’s eastern seaboard, building on our active acquisition strategy and allowing us to deliver our well-appointed and sustainable SHAWOOD homes to more Australian homebuyers.

The vision for the Calderwood masterplan is to incorporate Sekisui House’s unique approach to placemaking and community building, combining the very best in design, quality, innovation, and sustainability to deliver a vibrant new estate."

The Calderwood site will be one of Sekisui House’s largest estates in its portfolio having successfully completed several large-scale residential developments in Australia since its incorporation in 2009.

In line with Sekisui House’s philosophy, the site will be developed to respect the natural characteristics of the land, embodying the rolling hillsides and commanding views of the Illawarra escarpment, Calderwood Valley and Lake Illawarra.

Craig D’Costa, Executive General Manager, Sekisui House Australia, said: "We have created an extremely strong residential offering across metropolitan Sydney, in response to increasing market demand for high-end lifestyle housing developments. This new acquisition in Calderwood will allow us to extend our premium housing and lifestyle proposition to a broad spectrum of customers with an affinity to second home buyers, large families and downsizers.

The successful delivery of this development will ultimately draw upon a strong connection with the local community, businesses, and government agencies. We will shortly commence the engagement and procurement of our delivery team that will ultimately support local employment and the Shellharbour economy. We’re excited by the opportunity to build our presence on the south coast of New South Wales and look forward to delivering an unmatched lifestyle for our future Calderwood residents."

Continuing its multi-awarding-winning accomplishments in home design and innovation, Sekisui House intends to further elevate the standard of sustainability and lifestyle features of housing in Australia as it expands the portfolio. Sekisui House looks forward to delivering a leading, sustainable masterplanned estate within Calderwood for all to enjoy.
