Crafted by an award-winning name

JD Property Group has been recognised with several prestigious awards, highlighting its commitment to excellence, innovation, and sustainability. These accolades underscore the developer’s commitment to creating distinguished living spaces that harmonise with their surroundings, and Secret Garden Private Residences will be no different.

Jason Dunn, Managing Director of JD Property Group and a third-generation Byron Bay local, shares his excitement for the development:  “As a proud local, I am excited to showcase the best of Byron in a world-class, luxury precinct.”

“Every element has been thoughtfully considered and designed.

“From partners to products, we have aimed to work with our local community at every stage.

“This includes partnering with a local landscape architect to incorporate natural vegetation in our expansive greenspaces, which account for more than 40% of the precinct’s ground floor area.

“We have also worked with a local designer Island Luxe to deliver a rustic, coastal, and authentic style emulating the Byron Bay coast and hinterland, not yet seen in residential apartment living.

“Secret Garden is a very different offering to others in the market and has been positively received by our community and stakeholders.

“We anticipate strong interest from residents and retailers.”

What’s more, the development’s premium-grade retail space will be a stand-out, set to showcase local talent, including top chefs, designers, and artisans, while bringing some of Australia’s leading brands to the Byron Bay township.

Emphasising sustainability, Secret Garden aims to provide a 100% renewable energy supply, along with rainwater harvesting and a strategy to maximise fresh, clean indoor air.
