Policy objective
Affordable housing


Development Victoria is transforming land in Officer into a welcoming residential community.

Officer is a fast-growing suburb in Melbourne’s south-east and we will support this growth by delivering a new residential development, new infrastructure, community spaces and a future town centre.

Our residential townhouse development – Oilo – will provide affordable homes for moderate income families, increasing the supply of homes in this emerging suburb to support sustainable growth in Melbourne’s south-east.

We have partnered with Victorian-owned Sienna Homes to deliver more than 200 sustainable and affordable townhouses at Olio, with construction of homes in Stage 1 now underway.

We are currently selling Stage 2, which comprises of over 100 homes – all within walking distance to Gum Scrub Creek, Officer Train Station, the new One Centre Square Officer and Olio Park.

Development Victoria is also planning parklands and pedestrian walkways which will connect Olio with the surrounding area and amenities.

As part of Stage 1, we delivered a new community park which opened in late 2023. Sized at over an acre, Olio Park features a playground, shelter, picnic spaces and BQQ and plenty of open space.

The park is now a popular meeting place for residents and local community members to enjoy the ambience of Gum Scrub Creek and surrounds.

Gum Scrub Creek Open space is one of the many features attracting people to Olio, including the newly revitalised Gum Scrub Creek. We were instrumental in the rejuvenation of this waterway, delivering an environment that supports the regeneration of a range of endangered and threatened wildlife and plant species.

In addition to these significant environmental outcomes, Olio residents and the Officer community will benefit from new public open space connections along the length of the creek for years to come.

Priority access

We help to make home ownership possible for more Victorians – ensuring that 25% of our properties are sold to everyday Victorian families who earn less than $150,030 a year.

At Olio, we offer eligible buyers a 7-day priority access period during which they can make a purchase before homes are made available to the general public, or exclusive access to properties created specifically for their price range. Find out more on the Olio website or at our sales office on the corner of Bridge Road and Coxon Street, Officer, which is open 11.00am to 5.00pm Saturday to Wednesday.


Homes at Olio Stage 2 have been designed to maximize energy efficiency through a range of standard sustainable inclusions, including a 7-star energy rating, double glazed/laminated windows (depending on design and location) and solar panels. This means they’ll require less energy to heat and cool, reducing residents’ carbon footprint and energy bills. 

Officer Town Centre

The Town Centre has been an important element of our vision for Officer. When complete, it will feature a mix of retail outlets such as supermarkets and specialty stores, mixed-use office spaces and new homes – all conveniently located close to the Officer Train Station and Princes Highway.

For more information, visit our Officer Town Centre project page.


The Officer Residential development is located on the corner of Bridge Road and Princess Hwy in Officer.

Development Victoria acknowledges the Bunurong people as the Traditional Custodians of the land.
