A SPIKE in first home buy­ers are be­hind the launch of the sec­ond stage of $10 mil­lion hous­ing project The Av­enue at Ormeau.

Sit­u­ated on the north­ern Gold Coast, the 1.5ha de­vel­op­ment will fea­ture 47 blocks start­ing from $255,900. Each site is more than 500sq m in size.

The de­vel­op­ment has at­tracted neigh­bour­ing Coomera res­i­dences Ni­cholas Tun­ga­toa and Pe­tra Mack­in­tosh (pic­tured with their chil­dren Ne­vaya and Hud­son), who have bought a 520 sqm par­cel of land.

Mr Tun­ga­toa said the size of the prop­erty paired with the State Gov­ern­ment’s $15,000 First Home Own­ers’ Grant drew them to sign a con­tract with Azure De­vel­op­ment Group.

“Our land at The Av­enue is re­ally well po­si­tioned and it’s just so much big­ger than any­thing else on the mar­ket … we were ex­pect­ing to have to travel out west in a place more ru­ral for this kind of size,” he said.

“The site is nice and flat too – a lot of the other land was much smaller and quite steep, which isn’t ideal for fam­i­lies want­ing to put in a tram­po­line like us.

“The State Gov­ern­ment Grant was also an in­cen­tive as we were sav­ing for some­thing any­way but weren’t sure where we wanted to buy so it has been a great bonus for us.”

Azure De­vel­op­ment Group di­rec­tor Trent Keir­nan said in­ter­est from south­east Queens­lan­ders en­ter­ing the prop­erty mar­ket had driven the launch of the sec­ond phase.

“The Av­enue is per­fect for fam­i­lies look­ing to build their dream home in a leafy, pri­vate set­ting with­out want­ing to com­pro­mise on space or lo­ca­tion – our prop­er­ties are on av­er­age 70sqm larger than other sites in the Bris­bane and Gold Coast cor­ri­dor, which has been driv­ing de­mand with first home buy­ers plan­ning on build­ing their for­ever home,” he said.

The Av­enue is on Eg­gers­dorf Rd.
