Lake­side lo­ca­tion a win­ner

The Courier-Mail - Home - - WATERSIDE SWAY - THOMAS MOR­GAN

As the old say­ing goes, prop­erty is all about lo­ca­tion, lo­ca­tion, lo­ca­tion.

A new medium-den­sity precinct on the Sunshine Coast is look­ing to lever­age just that, com­bin­ing wa­ter­front and park­land liv­ing with con­ve­nience to lo­cal em­ploy­ment, health­care and shop­ping fa­cil­i­ties.

Stock­land’s Sway Birtinya is the lat­est de­vel­op­ment at­tracted to the area by the mas­sive 17ha Sunshine Coast Health Precinct at Kawana, which has links to pub­lic trans­port, a ho­tel, aged care apart­ments and a green­field “health hub” fa­cil­ity for spe­cial­ists.

Stock­land se­nior de­vel­op­ment man­ager Matt Pat­ullo said the Birtinya com­mu­nity’s prox­im­ity to th­ese fa­cil­i­ties would pro­vide con­ve­nience for work­ers.

“Stock­land’s Birtinya com­mu­nity has been a sought-af­ter neigh­bour­hood for health pro­fes­sion­als and those look­ing to upgrade to a prime lo­ca­tion on the Sunshine Coast since the project first launched,” Mr Pat­ullo said.

“Sway’s quality de­signs and low­main­te­nance lifestyle within walk­ing dis­tance of two hos­pi­tals and Birtinya Town Cen­tre is also a draw­card for health­care work­ers.”

Sway Birtinya will have 60 town­houses and a cen­tral park, bar­be­cue fa­cil­i­ties and a com­mu­nity swim­ming pool, with Mr Pat­ullo promis­ing af­ford­abil­ity was key for the re­gion.

Sunshine Coast ar­chi­tec­ture firm O.G.E. Group de­signed each town­house to be dis­tinc­tive. “We’ve fo­cused very much on every home hav­ing a con­nec­tion to the out­doors, and every residence hav­ing its own iden­tity,” O.G.E. Group di­rec­tor John Robert­son said.

“Life’s busy so you want to come home and re­lax and en­joy the Coast, whether in your pri­vate space or in the com­mu­nal ar­eas.”

Stock­land's wa­ter­front town­house com­mu­nity at Birtinya is sure to sway work­ers at the Sunshine Coast’s new hospi­tal precinct.
