Why buy in Elements
Where most developments in Melbourne’s west are best described as estates and communities, Elements is closer to its own city. Thousands will eventually call this vibrant site home, and the amenity that such a large population generates will only add to the liveability enjoyed by residents, as well as to the value of their homes.
Elements Suburb Profile
Found in Melbourne’s fast-developing west, as little as a 25-minute drive from the CBD, Truganina is a rare and unique opportunity. The suburb is named after Truganini, the last full-blooded Aboriginal Tasmanian woman, who visited the area for a short time in the 1800s. At that time, and indeed until just a couple of decades ago, the area was nothing more than grazing land. Things began to change at the turn of the century however, and haven’t let up since. From a population of a little under 3000 in 2006, Truganina is set to be home to around 40,000 by 2031, with the likes of Elements estate spurring this incredible growth. While the quick access to the city is a major perk, the area is fast growing into one that is decidedly self-sufficient – manufacturing in nearby Laverton, a proposed business local park and ever-increasing amenity mean that Truganina offers opportunity by the bucketload.
