A $50 million development in Port Macquarie is expected to be completed by mid October.
"Ocean Estate is a prestigious 47 lot house and land development," Rob Scott from Scott Property Group said.
"It's positioned on the highest elevation in Port Macquarie, known as Transit Hill, with 60km coastal ocean views."
The completed estate will include resident access to a three acre rainforest with walking trails.
Mr Scott said every house has been designed to ensure privacy and positioned for maximum views.
Drainage, water and sewer services are currently being installed at the location.
During the coronavirus lockdown period of March and April the development was impacted.
"We lost a bit of time with consultants moving from their office and setting up at home," Mr Scott said.
"Since then progress has been back to normal and running at full capacity."
Mr Scott said he has received positive feedback from the community and praise from the locals.
"We are regenerating parts of the established rainforest to improve the environment and amenity in the area," he said.
Pacific Drive resident Peter Day moved into his property about a year ago after originally purchasing the block in 2013.
He believes views from his house down to the ocean at Lighthouse Beach won't be impacted once the estate is complete.
Mr Day was aware the development would eventually take place is generally satisfied with its progression.
Dust was a prior concern for residents and it inundated Mr Day's pool in January, due to the dry conditions.
Orr Street resident Maya McCulloch said she's not in favour of the development due to concerns about the environmental impact on the ecosystem at the location.
She is worried about the future for valuable species such as frogs.
Orr Street resident John McClure said he understands traffic will increase along Pacific Drive due to the development but he's overall happy with how the work has been carried out.
Mr McClure has lived in his property for the past 20 years and has been in communication with the developer.
Orr Street resident Gina Button said it's not a pleasant sound to hear the felling of trees at the location.
She said she will miss the rolling hills and greenery when she drives past the area.
Ms Button acknowledged development is a positive thing for the area of Port Macquarie.
