BEACH ES­TATE TO BOOM

The Courier-Mail - Home - - SUNSHINE COAST - BELINDA CHILTON

One of the last re­main­ing beach­front es­tates on the east coast of Aus­tralia is prov­ing to be a siz­zling hot prop­erty, with more than 800 peo­ple reg­is­ter­ing their in­ter­est even though sales don’t launch un­til July.

Stock­land’s Boka­rina Beach, part of the $5 bil­lion Ocean­side de­vel­op­ment on the Sun­shine Coast, has ex­pe­ri­enced a spike in in­quiries since the re­cent open­ing of the Sun­shine Coast Univer­sity Hospi­tal at Ocean­side. Stock­land se­nior de­vel­op­ment man­ager Mark McMa­hon said the high level of in­ter­est came as no sur­prise.

“This is one of the last re­main­ing de­vel­opable parcels of beach­front land of its size on the east coast of Aus­tralia, and our vi­sion for Boka­rina Beach as a vi­brant sea­side com­mu­nity with an en­vi­able life­style is res­onat­ing strongly with prospec­tive home buy­ers,” Mr McMa­hon said. “Boka­rina Beach is just min­utes from the new Sun­shine Coast Univer­sity Hospi­tal and will have di­rect con­nec­tions to the Sun­shine Coast Health Precinct and fu­ture Ocean­side Town Cen­tre.

“I ex­pect de­mand to ramp up in com­ing months as we draw closer to the first land re­lease.”

Boka­rina Beach will be a mixed-use res­i­den­tial, re­tail and tourism hub, in­clud­ing about 160 home sites, 130 ter­race homes and 800 beach­side apart­ments in build­ings rang­ing from four to eight storeys.

De­tailed pric­ing will be re­leased closer to the start of sales in July, but in­ter­ested buy­ers can regis­ter at stock­land.com.au

The com­mu­nity will be de­vel­oped in stages, with con­struc­tion ex­pected to be com­pleted on the fi­nal stage by about 2020.

The es­tate will have bou­tique shops, cafes and restau­rants, with plans for a new pub­lic beach ac­cess and a new surf life saving fa­cil­ity, and more than 5ha of open space, in­clud­ing park­land and the Lake Kawana ex­ten­sion, en­sur­ing all res­i­dents are just a short stroll from the beach, lake and green open spa­ces.

Stock­land’s Boka­rina Beach res­i­den­tial precinct (close to the Sun­shine Coast Univer­sity Hospi­tal) is gen­er­at­ing strong early in­ter­est from buy­ers ahead of the first land re­lease, which is sched­uled for July.
