Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - Property - - FRONT PAGE - WORDS ALEISHA DAW­SON

THE Gold Coast’s largest dis­play vil­lage is com­plete at Villa­wood Prop­er­ties’ $500 mil­lion He­lensvale com­mu­nity, The Sur­rounds, with the doors to 31 new homes now open.

The launch of the dis­play vil­lage co­in­cides with the com­ple­tion of Stage 2 of the light rail, which will ser­vice the He­lensvale sta­tion from early 2018.

Villa­wood Prop­er­ties ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Tony John­son said the light rail con­nec­tion to He­lensvale has been a draw­card for pur­chasers at The Sur­rounds and would be a cat­a­lyst for the gen­tri­fi­ca­tion of He­lensvale.

“The $420 mil­lion stage two light rail con­nec­tion to He­lensvale is the first great step in un­lock­ing the full po­ten­tial of The Sur­rounds, which is be­ing de­vel­oped on such a unique site,” he said.

“The He­lensvale tran­sit cen­tre, lo­cated at the en­trance to The Sur­rounds, is now the only trans­port hub in the state that al­lows com­muters ac­cess to three ma­jor forms of pub­lic trans­port – heavy rail, light rail and buses.

“The light rail con­nec­tion to He­lensvale is not only vi­tal to the Com­mon­wealth Games trans­port task, but was an in­vest­ment in the Gold Coast’s fu­ture, and to the trans­for­ma­tion of the sub­urb of He­lensvale.”

The trans­port hub is an 800m walk from the dis­play vil­lage. The dis­play vil­lage fea­tures de­signs from 10 lead­ing builders in­clud­ing As­ton Mi­lan, GJ Gard­ner, Mc­Carthy Homes, McDon­ald Jones, Met­ri­con, Plan­ta­tion Homes, Porter Davis, Si­monds Homes and Style­mas­ter.

“Hav­ing so many dis­plays from a range of lead­ing builders within one lo­ca­tion gives prospec­tive buy­ers a chance to ex­plore their op­tions and eas­ily com­pare de­signs to find the right fit for them,” Mr John­son said.

The Sur­rounds sales and in­for­ma­tion cen­tre is on Coun­try Club Drive, He­lensvale, and is open ev­ery day.
