Overall, Greater Melbourne is projected to grow by approximately 4.0 million people, increasing from 5.0 million in 2018 to 9 million in 2056.  Much of this growth will occur in the new suburbs being developed in the west. For people building at Accolade there will still be plenty of new families in the looming population boom (41.1%) and a slight increase in couples (27.5%) and lone person households (26.2%) when it comes time for resales. With the development of standalone housing and townhouses at Accolade the estate is catering for the majority of housing demands into the future which is very important for capital growth.

In addition, by 2036 Accolade will be a mature garden estate and a standout location in what by then will be an established market with strong resales with the affordable suburbs further out. “This population boost is expected to result in strong rises in land and housing prices as more than 10,000 people move into the region every year”, said Accolade developer Resi Ventures’ Khurram Saeed and Anthony Braunthal. By then Accolade will have access to a major shopping centre and the urban infrastructure for the additional 175,000 people resulting in a bustling multicultural lifestyle.
