Queensland developers were among some of the most active, and busy, in 2021.
The Gold Coast boomed as much as anywhere in the country, with interstate migration still seeing thousands move from the southern states, while Brisbane picked up an early burst of sentiment with the news they would be hosting the 2032 Summer Olympics.
Some of Queensland’s top developers have been planning for 2022 and acquiring development sites, while also happy to leave any official project launch to near Christmas given the border reopening to prospective New South Wales and Victoria buyers.
We’ve taken a look at who’s been busy in the market, with site acquisitions and project launches, heading in to 2022.
Cube Developments is one of the most well known developers on the Sunshine Coast. They’ve built up their pipeline for 2022, with further site acquisitions in the lakeside suburb of Birtinya.
They recently secured a near 9,000 sqm site in Cardinal Place, which will host up to 245 apartments, adding a further $100 million to Cube’s Birtinya portfolio.
Cube, led by director Scott Juniper, recently submitted $75 million plans for Oasis Apartments, just 56 residences across three buildings at Bokarina Beach.
Juniper said that he expected the new sites acquired by Cube would relieve the pressure currently experienced in the Sunshine Coast housing market.
“Our commitment to the Sunshine Coast is resolute and has culminated in a site where we can rapidly cater to the strong demand that we’re experiencing,” Juniper said.
Currently Cube are selling Seasons Birtinya, a two-building development of 146 apartments designed by Cottee Parker Architects.
“The brief was to create a unique and elevated ‘Work Rest Play’ environment in response to the post COVID lifestyle shift, with leading amenity for the Sunshine Coast,” Cottee Parker director Sandra Browne told Urban.
They also have in market Nature by Cube, a luxury project at Cotton Tree.
