The developer believes that the built environment should respect the natural one, profit should not be a driver at the cost of sustainability. As such, only 20% of Ocean Ridge will become residential. The other 80% will be revegetated to create an environment with parks, nature walks and cycle tracks. Native flora and fauna will abound creating an idyllic natural environment for all to enjoy.

Ocean Ridge is encouraging its residents to explore the options of adopting eco-building principles. The use of high quality permanent materials is a prerequisite which is sympathetic to the environment.
