White Gum Valley (WGV) is a 2.2ha medium density, 80 dwelling residential infill development located in the City of Fremantle. Led by the WA State Government’s land development agency LandCorp, WGV demonstrates design excellence on a number of levels by incorporating diverse building typologies (detached houses, town houses and apartments), climate sensitive considerations, creative urban greening and innovative water management strategies. This Living Laboratory project will follow the development process at WGV from construction, to completion, through to occupancy, with a focus on the mechanism used to achieve low carbon outcomes, their acceptance and uptake, with a view to making them mainstream.
