The quay to coastal living
A WAVE of demand for stylish coastal living has marked the launch of a new housing development in the seaside town of Torquay.
Buyers snapped up 25 lots at the launch of the Quay 2 project, the second and final instalment of the awardwinning The Quay residential development.
Quay 2, by Intrapac Property and Brencorp Properties, will include more than 600 homes when complete, with a mix of land lots and modern, medium density townhouses on offer.
Its elevated location provides ocean views to about a third of the homes in Quay 2.
The project’s May 28 launch saw the release of 29 lots in the exclusive Crestbury Precinct, ranging in size from 252sq m to 540sq m and priced from $179,000 to $324,000.
A second land release is expected in four to six weeks.
Inrapac founder David Payes said the vision for The Quay began a decade ago with the aim of “building a community, not just a subdivision”. “When people drove into the neighbourhood, we wanted it to feel coastal, to have architectural integrity and substantial open spaces, parks and playing fields,” he said.
“With the council’s help, we brought this vision to life and now take it a step further with Quay 2.”
The Quay, a 580-lot subdivision between Torquay beach and the Surf Coast Highway, won an Urban Development Institute of Australia excellence award in 2008. Intrapac Property chief operating officer Maxwell Shifman said the estate, about 19km from Geelong, was still highly regarded for its urban design, landscaping and design guidelines.
“People who liked The Quay will absolutely love Quay 2,” Mr Shifman said. “It has all the same elements, such as beautiful landscaping, environmental sustainability.”
