Smooth Sailing for $2.74bn Brisbane Marina Plan

Smooth Sailing for $2.74bn Brisbane Marina Plan

A $2.74 billion marina, residential and recreation precinct just north of Brisbane is set to be streamlined under Queensland’s priority development area scheme.

The 570-hectare development site in Burpengary East received bipartisan support to be declared a PDA following the state election on 31 October.

The North Harbour Marina Precinct consists of a 400-berth marina, retail village, 600 new apartments and 600 detached homes as part of the marina village, and 800 dwellings in a waterfront estate.

The masterplanned community also includes 319 hectares of recreational and regional open space and is expected to be home to around 10,000 residents along Caboolture River.

Joint project developers North Harbour Holdings and Trask Land Corporation will work on the project which is expected to be complete by 2035.

▲ The site adds to the existing North Harbour development in Burpengary East
▲ The site adds to the existing North Harbour development in Burpengary East and is expected to inject $707 million a year into the region.

North Harbour has already received support from Moreton Bay Regional Council mayor Peter Flannery and councillor Mark Booth.

North Harbour project director Bryan Finney welcomed the bipartisan commitment to declare the site a priority development area.

“The PDA will pave the way for North Harbour to become a state-of-the art marine industry hub,” Finney said.

“The North Harbour team has extensive experience with waterfront development and are well placed to attract a significant portion of Australia’s $68 billion marine industry to the region.”

Trask Land Corporation managing director David Trask said with key enabling infrastructure already in place, they are ready to create an exciting legacy project once planning approvals are received.

“The North Harbour Marina Precinct is a vital project which will benefit this rapidly growing area for many generations to come,” Trask said.

“The timing of this announcement could not be better as it will also underpin our region’s post Covid-19 recovery.”

▲ The North Harbour development will also take advantage on in-demand boat moorings across South East Queensland.
▲ The North Harbour development will also take advantage of current wait lists on boat moorings seen across South East Queensland.

The site adds to the existing North Harbour development which is at stage 45 of land releases and includes 30 display homes.

The Moreton Bay region is attracting a number of large-scale residential projects.

Stockland recently submitted plans for a $388 million residential projects across the Bruce Highway in Caboolture West.

Further north, the Sunshine Coast lifestyle has been a major drawcard during the Covid-induced “Zoom boom” .

The region recorded a 0.8 per cent increase in the second quarter of 2020, meanwhile greater Brisbane prices went up by 1.7 per cent.

Gold Coast set for Australia’s first Mondrian brand residences and five-star hotel

five-star hotel

The boutique US hotel operator Mondrian has announced it will open its first five-star hotel and brand residence in Australia at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast.

Mondrian, a partnership between SBE Entertainment and hospitality giant Accor, has engaged the local developer Vitale Project to construct the two tower development which is slated for completion in mid-2023.

The two towers, designed by the multi-award-winning architect Elenberg Fraser, will separate the 89 private residences from the hotel, which will have 208 guest rooms.

Studio Carter, the international hospitality design consultant, was commissioned to oversee the interior design.

The building will be connected by a three-level podium that acts as the building’s communal space and will home a state-of-the-art fitness center, spa, restaurants, and swimming pools, all overlooking the beach.

It’s being built on 4,035 sqm on the corner of First Avenue and The Esplanade Burleigh Heads.

five-star hotel

Mondrian Gold Coast is one of nine new Mondrian properties that SBE plans to open globally by 2022, with six more to be announced.

It follows the company’s recent opening of Mondrian Seoul Itaewon, and the announcement of Mondrian Shoreditch London set to open in 2021.

The Gold Coast has grown into one of Australia’s leading travel destinations and the opening of Mondrian Gold Coast is the next step in our strategic global expansion for the Mondrian brand, selecting communities at the heart of the most exciting cultural destinations in the world,” SBE’s chief operating officer Chadi Farhat said.

Accor Pacific chief executive Simon McGrath said the expansion of the first-ever Mondrian into Australia reflects Accor’s commitment to developing innovative, lifestyle-oriented hotels alongside SBE.

“With the Mondrian brand, SBE creates destinations within the destination, bringing together regional authenticity with sophisticated design, creative programming, and a lively bar and restaurant scene.

“Mondrian Gold Coast will be the embodiment of this philosophy: providing residents and guests with elevated hospitality experiences that match the beauty and vibrancy of Australia’s Gold Coast region.”

LGC Property Investments, directed by Chris and Letitia Vitale, paid $22 million for the site, which currently houses the 1960s apartment block White Horses Apartment, in July.

There had been an agreement in place for the Brisbane-based Neilson Properties to buy the site in 2018, but that failed to proceed.

The White Horse Apartment owners had been in court battles for a number of years trying to band together to sell their combined 49 apartments.

But because it was a company titled block, they needed 100 percent of the vote to approve a sale, however, six owners resisted.
