CURVE TAK­ING SHAPE

The Courier-Mail - Home - - HEALTH HUB - SA­MAN­THA HEALY

A Sun­shine Coast de­vel­oper will break ground on its $37 mil­lion lake­side res­i­den­tial com­plex next year, but there has al­ready been plenty of in­ter­est from the med­i­cal fra­ter­nity.

Curve Birtinya will fea­ture 55 lux­ury one-, two- and three-bed­room apart­ments within the heart of the Ocean­side Health Hub – a 17ha de­vel­op­ment along­side the Sun­shine Coast Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal. Launched in midSeptem­ber, Cube De­vel­op­ments di­rec­tor Scott Ju­niper said there had been six ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est and one apart­ment sale.

“It soon be­came ob­vi­ous that our po­ten­tial buy­ers would likely come from those con­nected to the hos­pi­tal, or peo­ple who wanted to be close to health fa­cil­i­ties,” he said.

“But hav­ing said that, peo­ple are also at­tracted by the new precinct and the fact our de­vel­op­ment is fo­cused on the owne­roc­cu­pier more so than in­vestors.

“We de­signed it with that in mind ... larger, live­able apart­ments with ev­ery­thing you need in walk­ing dis­tance.” Mr Ju­niper said they had also fo­cused on en­sur­ing the build­ing it­self was a “show­stop­per”. “Ar­chi­tec­turally, we have gone to another level,” he said.

Con­struc­tion is ex­pected to start in Jan­uary 2018 and be com­pleted by Jan­uary 2019.

Each apart­ment will boast northerly wa­ter views, spacious light-filled in­te­ri­ors, high ceil­ings, quality ap­pli­ances, gen­er­ous bal­conies and room to en­ter­tain.

The spacious apart­ments are also ex­pected to be pop­u­lar with empty-nesters keen to down­size but not ready for a re­tire­ment vil­lage set­ting.

“You can pad­dle in the lake, jog around the board­walk, visit lo­cal restau­rants and cafes, work out in the on-site gym or en­joy a Sun­day morn­ing cof­fee in the beau­ti­ful park next door,’’ Mr Ju­niper said.

Apart­ments at Curve Birtinya range from $385,000 for a one-bed­room apart­ment to $1.05 mil­lion for a three-bed­room pent­house with rooftop ter­race.

Curve Birtinya is a $37 mil­lion project just launched lake­side in the heart of the Sun­shine Coast's world-class health hub.
