UNIT SITE MAR­RIES OLD, NEW

The Courier-Mail - Home - - NEWS - EMILY BLACK

A new town­house project has launched on the Sun­shine Coast, which will see 32 new three­bed­room res­i­dences in Bud­erim.

Ken Guy Bud­erim prin­ci­pal and marketing agent Danny Red­man said the development would be built on the Bud­erim Mo­tor Inn site, a pop­u­lar spot to get mar­ried in the 1980s.

“It’s quite an iconic land­mark that was for prob­a­bly 30 or 35 years a mo­tel site,” Mr Red­man said. “It had ac­com­mo­da­tion and beau­ti­ful land­scaped gar­dens and a restau­rant, so if you wanted to get mar­ried, you could get mar­ried, have your re­cep­tion there and if you en­joyed your­self too much you could ac­com­mo­date your­self there on the day.”

The agency had the prop­erty on the mar­ket in 2015 and it at­tracted a lot of in­ter­est from in­ter­state and lo­cal in­vestors who wanted to buy it as a pre­mium res­i­den­tial project.

“But the owner de­cided to re­tain the site and look for some suit­able joint ven­ture part­ners and that’s how this all evolved,” he said. “A very ac­com­plished Bris­bane ar­chi­tect, Paul But­ter­worth, be­came en­gaged and he an­swered the brief per­fectly well and un­der­stood our mar­ket place and life­style and he cre­ated this de­sign for Bud­erim Cen­tral.

“It’s not just Bud­erim Cen­tral to Bud­erim, it’s Bud­erim Cen­tral for the cen­tral Sun­shine Coast, it’s quite an in­ter­est­ing ge­o­graph­i­cal de­mo­graphic.

“We’ve only just launched in the last cou­ple of days and... the in­ter­est has been quite over­whelm­ing, be­cause it ticks those boxes, you can buy a three-bed­room pre­mium level town­house for un­der $600,000. We ex­pect a lot of those buy­ers will be from in­ter­state and they might be in­terim in­vestors, but long-term res­i­dents.’’

Bud­erim Cen­tral is a new town­house development of 32 units built with state-of-the-art ma­te­ri­als on an iconic site.
