We're not usually one for tooting our own horn - but....
Last financial year we achieved our highest ever new build numbers including our 100th build!
It's no secret that Townsville has experienced some tough economic times of late, but confidence is building and there's a positive feel about the future of our fantastic city.
We only have to look back and consider the achievements of our small, but committed team in the previous financial year to appreciate the positives.
Last financial year was our most successful yet, completing 21 new home constructions, exceeding the previous high of 17. A large proportion of which were built in the Maidment Developments of Harris Crossing and Eden Park.

Martin Locke said the results were promising given the difficult economic conditions for both businesses and individuals.“As a custom builder, our focus is on workmanship and the finest finish for our clients which means quality over quantity,” Mr Locke said.
“While we’re not normally concerned with pushing out a high number of builds, it is definitely encouraging for our small, committed team and our trades and suppliers to see the demand is growing,” he said.
“Our aim is to enhance the lives of our clients through thoughtful, accessible design and excellent construction, so our product has really worked well in Harris Crossing and Eden Park, I think because Maidment Developments are concentrating on creating communities with lifestyle as the big focus.”
our 100th home!
MLH clients Nigel and Tania Sowerby could not be happier with their home in Harris Crossing and the ‘honour’ of it officially being the 100th Martin Locke Homes build.
“Our home, its design, its location and how it feels to live in has achieved the lifestyle change we were after and it’s even brought our family closer together,” Mr Sowerby said.
“The whole experience with Martin Locke Homes was fantastic, and the location at Harris Crossing is great, we’re so close to Willows and everywhere is easy to get to with the Ring Road so close by.”
good signs for the future
The promising results follow an encouraging 2016 – 2017 financial year which saw MLH build its award-winning Isaac 303 Display Home at Harris Crossing. As a result, MLH homes were prominent in the estate’s first release with now eight (8) featured on Swanlea Circuit alone.
“Many of our clients in Swanlea Circuit went through their build journeys together, they are neighbours, they know each other and it’s great to see there is a mini MLH community in Harris Crossing,” Mr Locke said.
“Now, we’re seeing the same type of thing happening in Eden Park as well, we completed four builds there last financial year, we just handed over the keys to another and we’ve started construction on one more.”
Martin Locke Homes now has three display homes open for the first time, with award winning homes at Harris Crossing and North Shore and a newly opened Multigenerational display home at Elliot Springs.
