Bankside’s highly considered masterplan transforms its distinctive topography into a modern enclave with a unique spirit of place. Passing between open parkland and the site’s mixed-use precincts, the tree lined entrance boulevard extends a welcome that is both scenic and practical. Internal roads offer views to Corhanwarrabul Creek or parkland, and in many cases, also the Dandenongs. Lush streetscape plantings and subtle traffic calming initiatives further heighten your sense of quiet, relaxed living.
Close to 40% of the site’s 68-hectares is dedicated to open space, all of it meticulously landscaped with a mix of European canopy trees along the main boulevard and natives throughout the rest of the development. Lots are oriented to maximise solar access and boast a variety of sizes. Bankside will also offer a selection of affordable medium density living including townhouse and apartment options.
Whatever your choice, Bankside’s emphasis on quality design will ensure you live in a neighbourhood of benchmark architectural character, with easy access to the site’s natural and built form attractions, and the amenity of the wider Rowville community.
Sustainably designed, rich with amenity and set among vast wetlands, parkland and open spaces, Bankside will be an urban residential enclave unlike any other.

The stunning parklands and open spaces of Bankside will be complemented by an inspired range of thoughtful, architecturally designed amenities and facilities located throughout the site. Together, they will help foster and support an active, connected community and a shared pride of place.
Parents with young families will love Treetops adventure playground. Overlooking Corhanwarrabul Creek and suitable for children of all ages, this beautifully landscaped 1 hectare (approx.) reserve is planned to include formal and informal play areas, basketball and netball rings, all-weather shelters and an amenities block, plus amphitheatre style seating, picnic tables and barbeques.
Health and wellbeing are another priority, with plentiful opportunities for group or individual recreation across the site. Start each morning at your own pace along Bankside’s Trail Run. If you work locally, jump on your bike or pull on your walking shoes and let the Waterwalks connect you to Rowville’s network of tracks and cycle paths. Or practise your favourite ball sports on the lush turf of the X-Field multi-sport precinct.
The arts will also form an inherent part of Bankside life. Placemaking across the site will showcase sculptural landscape elements and follies to be discovered, while the Deck Amphitheatre will create opportunities to experience music, theatre and other performing arts in an intimate setting.
The retail and hospitality tenancies planned for Bankside’s two mixed-use precincts will provide further opportunities to socialise, as will those of nearby Stamford Park. Pask will also hold regular gatherings and activities to bring together new residents and existing neighbours. So much more than an address, a home at Bankside is your opportunity to be part of something truly special.
Sustainability is a principal consideration in every new Pask development, but with a location as plentiful in natural assets as Bankside, the imperative is greater again. Our determination to rehabilitate Corhanwarrabul Creek, protect the local environment and use resources responsibly, inspired many innovative initiatives that will contribute to a greener, healthier community for generations.
Collectively, these initiatives ensured Bankside received the maximum ‘six leaf’ EnviroDevelopment accreditation from the Urban Development Institute of Australia. A scientifically-based system that makes it easier to identify environmentally sustainable homes and lifestyles, this highest possible accreditation recognises Bankside’s exemplary achievements in the six key areas of ecosystems, energy, community, water, materials and waste.
The stringent EnviroDevelopment standards are set by an expert panel comprising experienced ecologists, town planners, engineers, architects, lawyers, economists and developers.
By purchasing a home within an EnviroDevelopment, you are assured of living in a community with minimal impact on the environment; that encourages safe, healthy and active lifestyles.
In striving to create communities of the highest standards that are sensitive to the environment, Pask has formulated a set of sustainable housing, living and landscaping guidelines we call our ‘Living Design Principles’.
Showcasing the latest in new home design from some of Victoria’s leading builders, the Bankside Display Village will offer design inspiration for your new home with a selection of single and double storey designs on display.
