Pre­cious patch stays green

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Rear View -

IT is now a widely ac­cepted fact that Noosa is Queens­land’s most exclusive and pro­tected lifestyle des­ti­na­tion.

The re­gion has long been renowned for its clean, green en­vi­ron­ment, choice of stun­ning beaches and world fa­mous Na­tional Park. Now, strong cap­i­tal growth in the Sun­shine Coast’s prop­erty mar­ket is send­ing in­vestors scram­bling for their rare and pre­cious piece of Noosa.

For some in­vestors, Virid­ian Re­sort and Spa is prov­ing a rel­a­tively solid op­tion. Ac­cord­ing to the de­vel­op­ers, Virid­ian rep­re­sents the way of the fu­ture for de­vel­op­ment on the Sun- shine Coast, set­ting an ex­em­plary stan­dard in en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity.

With a prime po­si­tion just off Hast­ings Street, and bounded Noosa Na­tional Park over­look­ing La­guna Bay, Virid­ian Re­sort and Spa is set across 20 hectares of land, 10 of which have been do­nated as park­land by the de­vel­op­ers.

The de­vel­oper’s com­mit­ment to pre­serv­ing Noosa’s en­vi­ron­ment is fur­ther demon­strated by the ex­ten­sive re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of the site’s nat­u­ral habi­tat, in­clud­ing the plant­ing of over 36,000 na­tive trees. Virid­ian Re­sort and Spa fea­tures eco- sen­si­tive ar­chi­tec­ture and utilises world’s best prac­tice in en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able de­sign in­clud­ing so­lar elec­tric­ity, nat­u­ral gas, wa­ter stor­age and re­cy­cling, pas­sive so­lar con­trol and cross ventilation.

The board­walk which links Virid­ian’s grounds to Hast­ings Street en­cour­ages guests and res­i­dents to leave the car be­hind.

The project has been recog­nised by the Ur­ban De­vel­op­ment In­sti­tute of Aus­tralia ( UDIA), the Royal Aus­tralian In­sti­tute of Ar­chi­tects ( RAIA) and the Noosa Glossies Awards.
