Place Design Group were the open space planners and landscape architects for the Urban Land Development Authority on their inaugural residential land development site at Fitzgibbon.

Initially, our involved a multidisciplinary team to delineate open space areas against competing land development issues.
The project progressed to detailed open space and recreation trail planning, bushfire management plans and the realisation of well designed public parklands, conservation areas and streetscape. We produced the detailed design and documentation of all streetscapes and parkland areas. The project has involved consultation with Brisbane City Council stakeholders to ensure consistency with local government expectation. Fitzgibbon Chase won the ‘BP-Water Sensitive Urban Design Award’ for parks and streetscapes at the Healthy Waterways Awards in 2012 and the 2011 Urban Development Institute of Australia (QLD) Awards for Excellence in Environmentally Sustainable Development – Land Based.
