SPRING INTO ACTION
While tradie and supply shortages are impacting many builds around the country at present, we have a number of builders in our Display Village at Pelican Waters who are looking to take on more work over the next 3-6 months. As you know it can take months to resolve your final designs and Christmas is fast approaching, so don’t delay your decision to do this based solely on the back of the negative news stories in the media. Many of our builders are low volume and can sit down with you and talk you through the process to ensure you have all the information you need to make an educated decision.
Pelican Waters is entering its final stages of development, meaning available land is in finite supply. Only a handful of premium lots are currently on the market, and now is the time to secure the perfect canvas for your dream coastal home before prices rise.
This land won’t last forever, and these unique lifestyle opportunities are becoming scarcer by the day.
There are seven waterfront lots remaining at the popular Castaways precinct nestled between parkland and the wide canal on the new island, while just three premium north facing lots are up for grabs across the water at Navigators.
Meanwhile, pricing is imminent for new Signature Terrace homes at Castaways, providing a luxury low maintenance option for downsizers and couples.
Secure your lot in this pristine lifestyle destination while you can and tell your friends!
The amenity of the Castaways precinct, and the whole community, has been recently enhanced with the opening of the new pedestrian bridge linking to the southern end of Pelican Waters through to the coastal path along Bells Creek. All you need to do is stand on the recently opened pedestrian bridge and cast your eyes north and west to see what’s left of the Pelican Waters development land – an ever decreasing commodity.
Enhancing the maritime theme and in keeping with other bridges around the island, the new structure’s keel shaped features and LED lighting displays offers an impressive access to the marina and Central Park for walkers, joggers, riders and skaters.
FRAMING AN EXCITING FUTURE
It is impossible to miss the enormous framework underway at the marina precinct as the state-of-the-art boat shed and dry stacker facility nears the finish line.
On completion, the facility will comprise a fully enclosed 3,000sqm shed for the storage of up to 160 boats up to 10m in length, unlimited boat lifts, boat washdown and engine flush amenities, client lounge and more.
On the water, the network of floating pontoons which are now more than 95% complete, set the scene for what will be a thriving hub of nautical activity once the boats arrive.
We are currently working through some red tape issues with Unity Water about service provision for future marina users, resulting in frustrating delays. They have now held up construction by over 4 months which in all likelihood will push us into January 2023 for the opening for what will be the first marina of its kind for the region in many decades, reshaping the southern Sunshine Coast as a destination in its own right.
Deposits are now being received from boaties keen to secure spots in the dry stacker and wet berths, while interest is also strong for the exciting range of commercial opportunities attached to the project such as marine mechanics and electricians, shipwrights, chandlers, canvasers and trimmers.
The dramatic changes to the northern part of Bribie Island which has seen a new coastal crossing about 2km south of Caloundra’s Happy Valley has generated plenty of local interest.
Recreational boaties, fishers and businesses based on Pumicestone Passage are watching carefully as events unfold.
Pelican Waters is working closely with all stakeholders including the Caloundra Coast Guard and relevant government bodies to plot a course forward which results in the best outcomes for all users of the passage. The aim of these discussions is to ensure the safety of all recreational watercraft users as well as considering the Pumicestone Passage tidal range extending up to the old bar for water quality and other environmental reasons.
Stay tuned for future updates.
VILLAGE ATTRACTS HIGH-PROFILE TENANTS
A number of high-profile tenants are now locked in for the Marina Village development, with Andrew Douglas from Henzells Commercial serving as the go-to agent for the range of opportunities on offer.
Approximately eight of the 15 commercial vacancies have now been filled, with a major café franchise, medical and allied health services, pilates studio, gym and sushi restaurant amongst those who have committed to the premium waterfront retail and lifestyle hub adjacent the marina.
Negotiations are progressing to attract a blue-chip restaurant or bistro operator to establish a signature business on the prime waterfront site overlooking the marina.
“People are looking ahead and imagining what an amazing destination this will be in the very near future. It will be buzzing with activity as the central hub of foot traffic resulting from the marina. They want to get in now, so they don’t miss out,’’ Andrew said.
SWINGS AND ROUNDABOUTS
We are edging ever closer to an opening date for Pelican Waters’ newest shared recreational space – Jensen Park. Construction has been extremely challenging for this park due to weather as well as trade and supply chain issues but we are just about there. The park may even be open by the time you read this but if it’s not don’t despair as it will be very close.
Bordering Bells Creek, the 4.3-hectare themed park will be a stunning addition to the more than 10ha of parkland in the
southern part of Pelican Waters, accounting for around 10% of total land.
Once open, visitors will enjoy a range of unique play equipment, custom bike circuit, cycle tracks and walkways and the southern region’s first frisbee golf oval.
The park is split into active and passive zones, comprising approximately three hectares of themed recreation and family facilities and the remainder dedicated to rehabilitation and retention of the Bells Creek tidal inlet.
ROCKPOOL RESIDENTIAL AGED CARE
Spitfire Banks Drive is a hive of activity, with construction officially underway at Rockpool Pelican Waters.
Opening in mid-2023, Rockpool Pelican Waters will boast water and mountain views and is situated just moments from the nearby marina and village.
Rockpool recently opened Australia’s first 5 Star, Green Star designed aged care home at Carseldine, which caught the attention of Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Aged Care Minister Anika Wells. The pair toured the site and were both blown away by the extraordinary range of facilities, the design and Rockpool’s approach to aged care. As the Prime Minister said.
“This is a world-class facility…”
“Rockpool is an example of what the future should look like, but it’s here today.”
Innovation and sustainability will underpin the build at Rockpool Pelican Waters, which will boast 150-beds once complete.
