THE public will be able to inspect the first stage of the Whitsundays newest lifestyle community when the sales office at Regatta Waters Whitsundays opens this Saturday, December 14.
It comes as the main entry road to the community is also completed and follows a number of other major construction milestones recently, including completion of two manmade lakes, the first golf course holes, civil works and communal area landscaping.
Ray White Whitsunday agent Steve Marks will be based at the onsite office and said its opening was timely, enabling the sales team to capitalise on the influx of visitors to Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays over the Christmas and New Year period.
“It enables us to make a pitch to non-local buyers who are in town for the holidays. Being in such an idyllic location, it shouldn’t be a hard sell,” he said.
“Our onsite presence will be hugely advantageous to our sales and marketing program as prospective buyers won’t have to rely on a brochure when making their decision to purchase. They’ll be able to drive around the first stage and see for themselves how the community is coming together.”
Visitors to the purpose-built sales office will be able to view the site’s masterplan and home designs as well as drive through the first stage of 49 lots.
Prospective buyers will also be able to see the ongoing construction of community amenities and communal recreation areas, as the 2500-lot estate starts to take shape.
The sales office is located on Shute Harbour Road, Cannonvale and will be open from 10am-5pm, seven days a week as of December 14.
THE entrance to Regatta Waters Whitsundays, just outside of Cannonvale, will soon resemble a tropical paradise upon the relocation of fourteen rainforest trees from within the development.
In a bid to accentuate the natural attributes of the Whitsunday property, existing iconic tropical foliage will be relocated to the front of the estate over the course of a week.
Latitude Development Group has brought in a team of professionals including local independent landscape architect John Harper and arborist David Hawthorn who will manage the delicate operation.
Development manager Richard Fries, who is overseeing the project, said the relocation was a significant task that would ensure the preservation of the native trees.
“It’s a slow process and one that needs to be done carefully, so we have a team of advisors that will ensure each tree makes it safely to the main entrance over the course of a week,” Mr Fries said.
“Once complete it will tie in well with the community layout which is designed to reveal the natural beauty of the Whitsunday landscape. The finished product will be a welcome sight to homeowners and visitors, displaying the serenity and tranquillity of the development.”
Construction on the golf course continues to forge ahead with man-made lakes to be filled by mid-November this year.
The Regatta Waters Whitsunday community will be developed over the next 10 to 15 years and will ultimately comprise 2500 residential lots across a 283.5 hectare greenfield site at Cannonvale.
Dwellings will include traditional homes, villas, townhouses and apartments.
