Cygnia Cove a Sell-Out Success


Richard Noble’s sold-out Cygnia Cove in Waterford has achieved incredible success on all fronts –
it’s a beautiful and well-connected place to live for the more than 200 households that call it home, it leaves a lasting legacy through its improved environmental outcomes, and it’s been recognised by industry with a number of State and National awards and accreditations.

The development resulted in the successful transformation of a highly contaminated and degraded site into a magnificent residential community with vastly improved environmental attributes, a rehabilitated wetland, a newly constructed wetland designed as a Black Swan breeding sanctuary, and an extended and rehabilitated foreshore reserve at its heart.

The wetlands now provide a continuous, environmentally sustainable water source for the Canning River and have been proven as a perfect feeding and breeding habitat for Western Australia’s iconic Black Swans.

The cultural heritage of the project site was also fundamental to the identity of the new community. The site’s proximity to the Canning River and neighbouring Clontarf Aboriginal College, a significant cultural facility, was acknowledged in the site planning and landscape design and now connects seamlessly with Cygnia Cove.

A raised boardwalk, a network of pathways, viewing areas and interpretive signs offer residents and the wider community the opportunity to connect with nature and learn about the site’s environmental highlights, and its rich and varied history.

Richard Noble Managing Director, Alex Gregg said he is incredibly proud of what’s been achieved at Cygnia Cove.
“We have transformed what was a degraded piece of land on the banks of the Canning River into a very beautiful and connected community for around 200 households – effectively providing a lasting environmental and cultural legacy for the whole community to enjoy.”

A range of industry experts agree, with the development being recognised with a range of prestigious awards and accreditations, including a number of UDIA State and National awards, UDIA EnviroDevelopment accreditation in the community and ecosystems categories and Water Corporation Gold Waterwise Development endorsement.
