The quay to coastal liv­ing

Herald Sun - Property - - DEVELOPMENT -

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.”
