AVID FANS OF PROJECT
The first residents have moved into AVID Property Group’s $3 billion Palmview development, Harmony.
Ben Francis and his partner Caisa Tottszer, both aged 21, moved in just before Christmas, and are among the first of 12,000 residents expected to move in to the masterplanned community over the next 15 to 20 years.
“We were looking to buy a house for around six months and looked at places and developments all over the coast,” Mr Francis said. “We decided to buy a piece of land in Harmony, as we had heard great things about the plans for the development, as well as it being so central to everything on the Sunshine Coast. I work in Caloundra and my partner works in Noosa, so it is the perfect location for us. We both grew up on the Sunshine Coast and love the lifestyle here.”
The couple chose a three-bedroom, single storey house by Sunshine Coast builder, Nu Trend Quality Homes.
AVID Property Group general manager Queensland Bruce Harper said it was exciting to be welcoming Harmony’s first residents.
“Harmony has been almost 10 years in the making and it is rewarding to finally see our first residents settling in and buyers’ dreams becoming a reality,” Mr Harper said.
“We are looking forward to hosting a range of events, like long table dinners, that will help residents meet their neighbours and develop lifelong friendships.”
Mr Harper said there was a “hive of activity on-site” with lots of homes due for completion.
Once complete, Harmony will feature 4800 homes, 100 ha of open space, including Queensland’s first grand linear park, and a 15,250sq m town centre.
Harmony is home to the largest display village on the Sunshine Coast, Harmony Display World.
The display precinct showcases 43 architecturally-designed homes from 25 local and national builders.
