CITY HEIGHTS

The Weekend Post - Cairns Eye - - Front Page - WORDS:

is be­ing taken to new heights, lit­er­ally. With the con­struc­tion of the first of seven tow­ers, Nova Light, about to start. It has been a long jour­ney for World Class Global’s sales di­rec­tor, Zak Thaker, which be­gan when he first met the chair­man of Aspial Cor­po­ra­tion 13 years ago.

Con­struc­tion be­gan last week and calls for a cel­e­bra­tion and the spe­cial VIP night was held at the Nova City Dis­play Gallery on Spence St. There you could get a feel for the in­no­va­tive de­sign, lux­ury res­i­den­tial apart­ments, com­mer­cial build­ing, re­tail shops, a ho­tel, restau­rants, cafe­te­rias, health cen­tres, Club Nova with its in­cred­i­ble ameni­ties for res­i­dents and its very own tree-lined boule­vard. Nova City have even gone so far as to dis­play their two-colour pal­let op­tions for the apart­ments – dark or light.

Mem­ber for Cairns Michael Healy shared some very ex­cit­ing facts and fig­ures about the growth of Cairns. He fin­ished off with: “It is a great time to be in this city be­cause this de­vel­op­ment is just an­other in­di­ca­tor of where we are go­ing”. Zak left us all feel­ing very in­spired. “We are not just build­ing a tower, that is easy enough to do,” he said. “We are build­ing a whole new precinct, a new in­te­grated des­ti­na­tion, a new city within the city – seven glass tow­ers, the tallest in Cairns – when com­pleted. This will change the cityscape of the city of Cairns for­ever. It is the largest pri­vate de­vel­op­ment in the his­tory of the Cairns CBD, $550 mil­lion in one lo­ca­tion.”

If you want to own your own lit­tle slice of his­tory in the mak­ing, you will have to be quick. More than 50 per cent of the first tower has been sold since its re­lease and 90 per cent of the own­ers are Aus­tralian. I will take one on every level, thanks.
