Stockland is a Top 3 retirement living operator within Australia, with 7,535 established units across five states. Our portfolio includes a short-medium term development pipeline of over 3,413 units.
The Stockland story began in 1952 when a young architect named Ervin Graf was employed to turn a small poultry farm at Sefton into a housing estate. Ervin had recently arrived in Australia from Hungary and literally worked his way from the ground up, carrying out all tasks from setting site levels to managing the finances.
That first Stockland development proved a great success, providing low cost housing eagerly sought by a community growing rapidly after the war. And those nineteen houses built at Sefton in Western Sydney remain virtually unchanged today.
Ervin Graf's vision at this time was to "not merely achieve growth and profits but to make a worthwhile contribution to the development of our cities and our great country".
From 1952 the team at Stockland has kept Ervin's vision alive by creating communities that inspire people to gather, to share and to live life. Places that are as functional as they are colourful.
