SunCentral Maroochydore has released brand-new images of its planned, $430million Maroochydore CBD, one of Queensland’s largest urban regeneration projects.

Civil works have been completed in the core commercial precinct of the site and construction of the CBD’s first buildings are expected to start mid-year.

The Sunshine Coast has attracted billions of dollars in public and private investment in recent years, making the regional economy one of the strongest in the state.

Investment includes the new international sub-sea broadband cable that will deliver unprecedented global data connectivity in 2020, the Sunshine Coast International Airport expansion that will double passenger capacity into Maroochydore and plans for the new passenger rail / light rail network – all of which will transform connectivity for business and community.

Apart from the new international broadband cable that will connect to a landing station located alongside the new CBD, more than $10 million in underground telecommunications and services capacity has been installed beneath the city centre’s new streets.

With the Sunshine Coast tipped to be home to 500,000 people by 2036, the site of the new Maroochydore CBD has been declared a Priority Development Area (PDA) by the State Government.

This status allows for streamlined planning, approval and development processes.

An enhanced city centre means an enhanced city lifestyle, and Maroochydore’s new CBD will be no exception.

Gorgeous waterways, new dining and entertainment venues, public plazas, beautiful parks, and exclusive retail precincts represent just a handful of the lifestyle features local residents and workers will enjoy in Maroochydore. And as these features attract more and more people to the CBD, it can only be good news for investors, with the lifestyle draw card helping to ensure healthy rental returns and rental demand for your Maroochydore property.
