Identified by State Government developers PlacesVic as the location for a new transit city, Officer is projected to have 5000 dwellings and a population of 18,000 by 2030. Outlines Landscape Architecture and DesignInc Melbourne were joint winners of a shortlisted competition in 2009 to design the Major Activity Centre at Officer.

Officer is to be a 6 Star sustainable suburb, with a new medium density core based around the existing Pakenham train line. We are undertaking extensive masterplanning at Officer for the major urban activity centre, the creeks and waterways, and the residential subdivision. Our work entails best practice streetscape typologies, urban density studies, wetland management and green space design.

Outlines is working alongside the Cities as Water Catchments Research Project which seeks to maximise water sensitive urban design opportunities on the site.
