SEKISUI House has triggered $9.2 million in sales at Ecco Ripley in Brisbane's western growth corridor, after breaking ground on the central hub of the community.
The developer commenced construction on the first stage of the new $1.5 billion Ripley Town Centre at the end of last year, which will service the projected 120,000 population of Ripley Valley.
Ecco Ripley state sales manager Scott Blaney says the increased sales activity was a direct response to the accelerated activity taking place that will transform the western growth corridor.
"People are recognising the value and opportunity that Ecco Ripley presents and can see that this will become a thriving and diverse community with the Town Centre now underway," Blaney says.
"Buyers are now aware of the vision for the new Ripley Town Centre and realise it will become the major focal point of not only Ecco Ripley, but for the entire Ripley Valley community."
Ecco Ripley offers a diverse range of housing choices, including terrace, duplex, Fit&Finished homes and land-only options to build on.
With more than 130 residents at Ecco Ripley and a further 73 homes under construction, Blaney says buyers are taking advantage of the affordable pricing.
"They understand what Ecco Ripley is set to become and the value they gain from buying in the initial stages of a masterplanned community," he says.
"The diverse housing options are very unique to Sekisui House and are tailored to a broad spectrum of buyers with varying budgets."
Sekisui House has released 47 land lots in Stage 4, starting from $165,000. Traditional house-and-land packages start from $357,200.
Launched in 2013, Ecco Ripley continues to progress with construction underway on the $40 million first stage of Ripley Town Centre and also on the Ripley Road upgrade.
