The first stage of the development offers the opportunity to set the tone in creating a unique integrated waterfront residential community, comprising of two five storey apartment buildings, four waterfront villa buildings and a recreation facilities building.
Climatically responsive with deep shading and filtered light through screening elements, the architecture is ‘Contemporary Queensland’ with clean lines and a modern lightness. Predominantly white surfaces are contrasted with a richness of green trellised walls, timber-toned accents and screening elements. As part of a larger broad-scale vision, each building maintains its own identity, whilst complimenting its neighbour and strengthening the community’s distinctive identity.
Lower building elements will bring a rich range of screening and detailing to the pedestrian-focused ground plane, while taller buildings will feature active and engaging rooftops with new levels of resident amenity and landscape expression that will become a quintessential part of community’s identity and hallmark lifestyle opportunity.
This initial stage of development will provide the early residential community with significant private and public amenity and an interim quality stand-alone living environment. A wide range of villa and medium-rise apartments will embrace the waterfront and park-front edges, while central garden apartments adjoin the precinct’s recreation hub and sporting facilities. Stage 1 will also be beneficial to the public realm from the outset, with the early provision of quality parkland and waterfront amenity.
