Diversifying the offering

Crace is a suburb in Gungahlin, north of Canberra in the ACT. It was developed through a joint venture between the ACT Government's Land Development Agency (LDA) and Crace Developments Pty Ltd, a consortium including CIC Australia, Defence Housing Australia (DHA), CHC Affordable Housing and Tatebrook Pty Ltd.

The vision for Crace was to offer flexibility in lifestyle choices on a scale never before seen in Canberra. Staying true to this commitment, the development ultimately delivers both an urban and suburban selection of residences, catering for a far broader customer base in the process.  

The urban precinct is characterised by its modern, contemporary urban built-form incorporating mainly two-storey homes, comprising of terraces, semi detached houses, compact detached houses and apartments. Drawing on the more traditional Canberra suburbs, the suburban precinct consists of standard lots with wide, attractive verges and improved streetscapes.

All homes on offer in the development have a minimum 5-star energy rating. The development demonstrates the whole range of Greensmart® principles which are practical, sustainable, affordable, and cost effective to the end purchasers.
