NEW He­lensvale com­mu­nity The Sur­rounds will wel­come its first res­i­dents ahead of Christ­mas. Work is al­most com­plete at the He­lensvale rail sta­tion, which is at the en­trance to the $500 mil­lion com­mu­nity, with pas­sen­gers able to board the G Link at He­lensvale from early 2018.

First home buy­ers Jai­son Vargh­ese and Reshma John­son (pic­tured), who bought a 428sq m lot in stage one, are look­ing for­ward to re­duc­ing their car­bon foot­print, with one of their two cars now on the mar­ket.

“The He­lensvale trans­port hub gives us ac­cess to light rail, heavy rail and buses, all within walk­ing dis­tance from our new home,” he said.

Lo­cated on the former Gold Coast Coun­try Club site, The Sur­rounds com­mu­nity will cover more than 60ha. The fin­ish­ing touches are be­ing made to the homes in stage one and Mr Vargh­ese said he and his wife were ea­ger to set­tle into their dou­ble storey, four- bed­room home. The Sur­rounds will have about 620 res­i­dences.

Villa­wood Prop­er­ties ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Tony John­son said The Sur­rounds was set to be­come one of the most well con­nected com­mu­ni­ties in the coun­try, with the stage two light rail con­nec­tion to He­lensvale prov­ing a key draw­card for buy­ers.
