Opening doors to the future

A move to Market Cove is a move to join a true community, where diverse cultures and people align. This soon to be buzzing neighbourhood is being created for you to enjoy living in a secure, caring environment. Guided by fundamental principles inherent to Favona and its people; community, inclusion and sustainability, this development is intended to set the standard for aspirational homes made accessible to a diverse range of people.


The proposed communal gardens, vegetable plots, cycle-ways and walking tracks are intended to foster a healthy environment that everyone can nurture and enjoy. Our vision is that there will be no shortage of places for people to meet with shops, eateries, picnic areas and parks a plenty. From the moment you step in, you’ll love to call Market Cove home.

Spaces to share

Market Cove is intended to be developed to offer a wide variety of community activities, services and events. The central park is proposed to be an exciting hub, to host events and regular markets for fresh produce, food trucks and local products.


The proposed community centre is intended to offer a flexible in-door venue for meet-ups, classes and activities. Market Cove’s vision is that a variety of services and wellness clinics will operate out of the community centre, providing amenities such as family planning, employment support, beneficiary services and childcare.


A proposed central retail space complete with café, corner shop and small pharmacy will mean you won’t be far from the essentials. Public barbeques, pocket parks, multi-sport game courts, playgrounds and picnic zones are intended to be scattered throughout, ensuring you’re never more than a stones-throw from the action.

“Great care has been taken to ensure there are great spaces available to the community to encourage interaction and access to the surrounding amenities and foreshore”.

Designed for us

It’s an expression of the best of human-centred design. Careful consideration has been given to you, the owner, and the types of amenities you would find important. After consulting with numerous architects, every home is designed with modern, easy, open- plan living front of mind. The result is light-filled interior spaces, just waiting to be shared with family and friends.


Functionality marries beautifully with clean, timeless aesthetics, expertly crafted to last a lifetime. Every detail considered, from kid-tough floors to subtle lighting and contemporary finishes. All the hard work has been taken care of, all that’s left is the fun part, adding your own personal touch.

“Market Cove will deliver thoughtfully designed, good looking, quality homes for everybody”

Preserving our home

Nestled amongst native bush and thriving birdlife, your new home and lifestyle will be in a community that is leading the way towards a smarter, more sustainable future. Designed with environmental sustainability at its core, Market Cove boasts alternative power solutions, rainwater collection and recycling initiatives.

Homestar rating

All homes will have 6-Homestar ratings, ensuring energy and water resources are used efficiently and every home is well- insulated, dry and warm.

Rain water harvesting

Stormwater is proposed to be treated in the streets through a series of planted rain gardens and swales, which will help to remove pollutants, slow down stormwater flows and recharge freshwater bodies.

Alternative power sources

Buildings have been designed to enable alternative energy sources to be used, such as solar technology. This may provide energy savings and reduce the carbon footprint of the community.

Recycling and community gardens

Waste, composting and recycling stations are proposed to be easily accessible and convenient for everyone to use. Community gardens are intended to help to promote health and wellbeing of residents, providing the twin benefit of exercise and the production of healthy food.
