The first res­i­dents have moved into AVID Prop­erty Group’s $3 bil­lion Palmview de­vel­op­ment, Har­mony.

Ben Fran­cis and his part­ner Caisa Tottszer, both aged 21, moved in just be­fore Christ­mas, and are among the first of 12,000 res­i­dents ex­pected to move in to the mas­ter­planned com­mu­nity over the next 15 to 20 years.

“We were look­ing to buy a house for around six months and looked at places and de­vel­op­ments all over the coast,” Mr Fran­cis said. “We de­cided to buy a piece of land in Har­mony, as we had heard great things about the plans for the de­vel­op­ment, as well as it be­ing so cen­tral to ev­ery­thing on the Sun­shine Coast. I work in Caloun­dra and my part­ner works in Noosa, so it is the per­fect lo­ca­tion for us. We both grew up on the Sun­shine Coast and love the life­style here.”

The cou­ple chose a three-bed­room, sin­gle storey house by Sun­shine Coast builder, Nu Trend Qual­ity Homes.

AVID Prop­erty Group gen­eral man­ager Queens­land Bruce Harper said it was ex­cit­ing to be wel­com­ing Har­mony’s first res­i­dents.

“Har­mony has been al­most 10 years in the mak­ing and it is re­ward­ing to fi­nally see our first res­i­dents set­tling in and buy­ers’ dreams be­com­ing a real­ity,” Mr Harper said.

“We are look­ing for­ward to host­ing a range of events, like long ta­ble din­ners, that will help res­i­dents meet their neigh­bours and de­velop life­long friend­ships.”

Mr Harper said there was a “hive of ac­tiv­ity on-site” with lots of homes due for com­ple­tion.

Once com­plete, Har­mony will fea­ture 4800 homes, 100 ha of open space, in­clud­ing Queens­land’s first grand lin­ear park, and a 15,250sq m town cen­tre.

Har­mony is home to the largest dis­play vil­lage on the Sun­shine Coast, Har­mony Dis­play World.

The dis­play precinct show­cases 43 ar­chi­tec­turally-de­signed homes from 25 lo­cal and na­tional builders.

Among the first res­i­dents in AVID Prop­erty Group’s Palmview de­vel­op­ment are Ben Fran­cis and Caisa Tottszer (pic­tured), who moved into their three­bed­room home just in time for Christ­mas.
