The first dedicated marina for the Sunshine Coast in many decades is officially underway. We are pleased to announce that contracts have been signed to signal the start of construction of the wet berths and associated infrastructure in the new marina precinct.
As we go to print, works should already be underway by local company, The Jetty Specialists installing pilings into the marina basin providing a first glimpse of what’s to come. Over the coming months the floating wet berths will begin to take shape for the future mooring of up to 126 vessels, with provisions now available for boats up to 15 metres.
Construction is also imminent for the associated marina facilities including fuel wharf providing unleaded and diesel fuels and the sewage pump-out station. We are about to set sail on associated landward works as well, as we move closer to finalising contracts with another respected local construction company, QTM, who will transform the precinct with a new 160 boat dry-stacker, boatyard, supporting marine-industry businesses and café.
Keep an eye out for building activity to start ramping up with this phase of the development early in the new year.
CONNECTIONS BUILT TO LAST
Connecting the community is at the heart and soul of what we do at Pelican Waters with a lot of work going into our network of parks, pathways, bridges and boardwalks to help keep residents active and engaged.
The latest example of this is now evident with piers rising up on the new pedestrian bridge linking the southern reaches of Pelican Waters with the island precinct, offering walkers, joggers, riders and skaters access to the marina and Central Park with its multitude of new and emerging recreational
Works are also underway on a vehicular bridge connecting the island to the western and golf course precincts via Mahogany and New Holland Drives. We expect pylons to start being erected for this project in mid-2022, with final completion date tipped for around the middle of 2023.
CASTAWAYS POCKET COMING SOON
In addition to the new bridges and associated construction activity, one of our primary focuses at Pelican Waters is the upcoming land release on the island, to be known as Castaways Pocket.
This release, earmarked for March next year, will offer something for everybody featuring 37 lots in total including nine premium waterfront homesites, eight exciting new terrace home designs overlooking the park and a wide selection of dry lots close to the water and Central Park.
The lots will range in size from low maintenance 399sqm sites up to large waterfront sites of 900sqm-plus, with pricing yet to be finalised.
Given the demand for quality land and the success of previous releases, the advice to prospective buyers would be to register your interest in order to get first options once the new land is available.
Kennedy Property Group, our developer partners for the upcoming marina dining, retail and shopping village, have teamed up with Henzells Agency to lease the exciting range of tenancies on offer.
With an expected completion date during 2022, Henzells’ commercial property experts are busy securing the right businesses to fit what will become a premium waterfront retail and lifestyle hub, complete with medical offices, adjacent the marina.
Residents and visitors can already expect a taste of the good life, with highly successful local hospitality experience and local kraft brewer tapping into the marina vibe by opening a new premises at the village. If your dining habits outweigh your shirt size then why not join the new gym or pilates studio that is also opening as part of the new development?
