Sustainable housing & communities
Our sustainable communities
Our communities are not only your homes – they’re a permanent part of the urban fabric of great Australian cities. With this in mind, Peet develops thriving, sustainable communities that give you a head start on the neighbourhood you’ll help shape into the future.
We not only build the infrastructure that supports communities, like roads, shops, schools, neighbourhood centres and services, we ensure your homes are integrated with existing landscapes, industries and neighbouring communities so they grow sustainably over time.
Innovation, choice and diversity
As Australia continues to grow, Peet provides the places to build your new homes – and the choices to make them your own.
From homes and townhouses to apartments and resort-style over 55s communities, you’ll find the right place, in the right location that feels right for you. Whether it’s four rooms with a pitched roof or open plan living encased by glass, we create properties that are affordable, sustainable and connected to where you want to be.
That’s because Peet is always looking forward to find new places, concepts and housing solutions that suit our changing lifestyles and livelihoods. We introduced the first display home concept more than a century ago and today we are breaking new ground in clever, affordable apartment construction.

We give you a head start on the neighbourhood you’ll build by laying the foundations that help communities prosper.
Parks, cafes, sports grounds and community centres are among the amenities you’ll find at our Peet communities, which we also link in to local transport, schools, medical centres, child care, shops and other services you need to call on in life.
By creating well connected communities – not just homes – we provide the services you need and the places and spaces you can enjoy and play, work, eat, shop, exercise and connect with your family, friends and neighbours. After all, connections help people and places thrive and grow.

Step into a Peet community and you’ll notice the attention given to the natural landscape.
It’s reflected in subtle landscaping, bushland parks, recycled road surfaces and artworks that form part of our sustainable development approach.
Before we build our communities, we examine the local landscape and how it can be built upon before we create the homesites, services and spaces that you can enjoy when you live there.
Through our parks, public open spaces, bushland areas and sporting precincts, we give people of all ages the chance to participate, explore and celebrate the area and their great new community.
Connecting with the existing landscape is fundamental to our estate planning.
