An Update From The Developer
I look forward to keeping you up to date with the latest happenings and developments within the vibrant Pelican Waters community – one of the most desirable, fresh and exciting waterfront precincts to live in all of Australia.
We have reached a significant milestone with our community’s central showpiece – Pelican Waters Southern Lakes – having recently obtained all regulatory requirements for the Development Approval (DA) process.
With the Sunshine Coast Regional Council and State Government granting preliminary approval for our proposed uses within the development, we are very excited about the prospect of the new town centre and mixed density residential precinct commencing soon.
To be built on the remaining 105 ha of the 810 ha suburb of Pelican Waters, The Southern Lakes will be the heart of the Pelican Waters community.
A place to live, work and play, the heart of Pelican Waters will consist of a modern 5 ha town centre overlooking a stunning marina complex, with dry-stack boat facility, water side pedestrian walks and a fabulous 3 ha park in the centre of the island. The town centre will offer residents a choice of restaurants, coffee shops, boutique retail outlets, child care, commercial offices and medical centre.
Radiating out from the town centre there will be a variety of residential options for a wide cross section of purchasers to choose from waterfront and non- waterfront blocks of varying sizes to appeal to buyers from all age groups and demographics.
A project of this size and complexity takes time to get right and in 2009 a forum was held with planning experts, council offices, local business operators and residents to formulate the master plan of The Southern Lakes so we could confidently propose the design to the Sunshine Coast Regional Council. We are on target to begin developing by 2013, with a 15-year completion time line.
Boronia Grove, Stage 2
Offering all the peace and tranquility synonymous with Pelican Waters, stage 2 of Boronia Grove has just been released for sale. At a time when there is a push towards smaller and smaller residential lots the Boronia Grove precinct is one of the only places on the Sunshine Coast in a master planned community where there is the opportunity to select traditional residential blocks. The 11 premium home sites range in size from 692 sqm to 750 sqm. Boronia Grove is bordered to the south by beautiful Bells Creek which flows direct to the fishing and boating paradise of Pumicestone Passage and provides a natural barrier to further development, ensuring the peaceful amenity is protected for future generations. Priced from only $260,000 to $266,000 these new release home sites are outstanding value.
Boronia Grove is a quiet and tranquil place to live and in the near future will be in walking distance to the town centre. Boronia Grove is a truly beautiful part of Pelican Waters.
There are also on offer in this stage two duplex home sites and one park view block.
In Boronia Grove there is an abundance of lush green parkland which is a perfect place for a family picnic with room for the kids to kick a footy, climb trees and fish in Bells creek.
The first stage of The Headlands has almost sold out with only a few ocean access waterfront blocks still for sale. These large waterfront blocks range in size from 852 sqm up to 912 sqm and they are priced to meet the market at only $450,000. These remaining blocks represent absolutely outstanding value. The waterfront blocks offer absolute water frontage where you can have your own private pontoon and boating access to the protected waterways of the pristine Pumicestone Passage and the blue water fishing grounds off Caloundra.
The Headlands Stage 2
The Headlands consists of two waterfront precincts and the second precinct, Headlands Stage 2, will be released in two stages with the first release to be offered to the market shortly.
The final release of The Headlands reflects the changing requirements of the buying public and the design of this latest release offers a wide selection of different sized blocks which will deliver greater choice of product at very competitive price points.
Comprising a mixture of prime waterfront and dry blocks, The Headlands stage 2 is the first release of its kind in Pelican Waters which departs from our standard 20m frontages.
The most northerly precinct in Pelican Waters, The Headlands is within easy reach of the shopping, dining and business hub of central Caloundra, while being less than a kilometre fromGoldenBeach.
A scenic waterfront boardwalk has been built winding past The Headlands connecting both sides of the Loch Lamerough waterway.
It’s a delight cycling, jogging or strolling with family or friends, taking in the stunning water views throughout Pelican Waters.
This final stage of The Headlands will be an opportunity not to be missed.
Pelican Waters is very proud of the many strong links it has forged with the local Caloundra community some of which I will talk about in this edition.
We have been a proud long-time sponsor and supporter for 25 years of the Pelican Waters Caloundra Swimming Club based at the Caloundra Aquatic Centre.
The Pelican Waters Swimming Club recently hosted a major sprint meet offering young competitors their final opportunity to qualify for the Queensland Championships.
It was a tremendous honour to attend the event and witness the depth of talent that has been nurtured at what is now ranked as one ofQueensland’s most successful regional swimming clubs.
Nearly 600 swimmers and more than 1500 people attended the January 14 meet in what was an extraordinary showcase of sporting and community endeavor. Everyone involved in the Pelican Waters Swimming Club contributed to this outstanding event. Without these dedicated parents working tirelessly behind the scenes these events would not eventuate or run as efficiently as this meet did.
It was at this facility where Caloundra teenager and Commonwealth Games silver medalist Tessa Wallace honed her skills under father and coach John Wallace, and it has been a great honour to watch her progress.
We are delighted to be associated with and support an organisation that shares our commitment to young people and families in the Caloundra community.
Another community organisation we have no hesitation in supporting is Night Eyes.
For more than 10 years, Pelican Waters has lent its support to the volunteer group which does an outstanding job keeping the waters of Pumicestone Passage and the foreshores and canals of Pelican Waters free from rubbish.
The award winning group also aims to educate the community about waterway litter and the damage it causes to our marine life, birdlife and the environment.
Pelican Waters offers its congratulations and thanks to the Night Eyes team of more than 250 dedicated volunteers for their ongoing efforts protecting our precious waterways.
I hope you found this first Developer Update informative and I look forward to bringing you more news from the Pelican Waters community soon.
