    Building a new community on a former quarry and landfill is no mean feat. But real estate developer Riverlee and a team of engineers have managed to pull it off.

    The $2 billion New Epping development, 18 kilometres from Melbourne's CBD, is designed to be a "city within a suburb", complete with residential neighbourhoods, commercial spaces and a health, wellness and knowledge precinct.

    Spanning 51 hectares, the development will provide housing, employment and commercial opportunities to the north Melbourne suburb – revitalising a twice-used site that may otherwise have lain dormant.

    "This is a true urban renewal and regeneration story," David Lee, Development Director at Riverlee, said.

    "It will drastically improve the local environment while also creating a community that will redefine the area in terms of urban experience and wellness. New Epping will set a new standard in how we regenerate infill sites and integrate mixed-use sites into the broader community."
