Ap­pre­ci­ate lit­tle won­ders

THE Cairns prop­erty mar­ket is of­ten guilty of plac­ing too much of its fo­cus on the “big projects” that are ei­ther pro­posed or un­der­way.

I can un­der­stand that we can be­come fas­ci­nated by the bright lights of th­ese de­vel­op­ments but we must not be blinded by them.

This is ev­i­dent by our fas­ci­na­tion with “big is bet­ter” projects such as Aquis, C3 and Nova8, which have all re­ceived huge me­dia at­ten­tion over the past year.

I ac­knowl­edge that th­ese de­vel­op­ments could be a huge bonus for Cairns, but I be­lieve we are ig­nor­ing the smaller, yet just as cru­cial projects that Cairns cur­rently has un­der­way.

Projects such as the The Vil­lage Edge – a small bou­tique project by Ur­ban Prop­er­ties has sig­nif­i­cant value for the Cairns mar­ket.

It is the first of its type for Cairns and con­struc­tion is al­ready un­der­way.

This is a $20-mil­lion project con­sist­ing of 57 res­i­den­tial lots, in­clud­ing 56 new houses and a 3000sq m unit com­plex site all lo­cated close to our city hub.

This project has the added bonus of en­gag­ing lo­cal de­vel­op­ment and con­struc­tion group Prime Con­struc­tions who will em­ploy about 100 con­struc­tion and af­fil­i­ated work­ers while also sourc­ing 95 per cent of its goods and ser­vices from the lo­cal Cairns mar­ket. This project is due for com­ple­tions around Christ­mas.

That’s right – a ma­jor de­vel­op­ment for Cairns that will be com­pleted this year.

So fo­cus on what is hap­pen­ing right now in Cairns. Look a bit deeper and you will dis­cover mul­ti­ple rea­sons to feel con­fi­dent that Cairns is in a great po­si­tion and worth in­vest­ing in.
