Sunshine Cove estate wins major design award

SUSTAINABILITY, community, growth, amenity, innovation and affordability. Before the planning of Sunshine Cove started the Chardan Development Group chose these six key words to use as its development yardstick for the central Maroochydore project. Today, seven years into the development of its, 106 hectare Sunshine Cove estate, Chardan’s commitment to these words has been recognised in winning the Urban Development Institute’s Qld award for Residential Subdivision.

Held at the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort, Gold Coast, on Friday night, it was the 21st anniversary of the UDIA’s awards program and the industry rose to the occasion with projects that set a high benchmark for future years.

UDIA (Qld) president Brett Gillan said delivering affordable housing, urban renewal, and thoughtful seniors’ living solutions – all at exceptional standards – were key priorities for the UDIA (Qld) and the residential development industry.

“It’s great to see that while there was a strong focus on innovation and creative design in all this year’s winning projects, the core values of sustainability, liveability, and fundamentally understanding how people want to live, were still at the heart of every development,” he said.

Sunshine Cove is home to 4000 people and offers a mixed use of commercial and urban residential precincts within a waterfront setting on the doorstep of Maroochydore’s newly announced CBD redevelopment.

It is also home to the emergence of some of the most dynamic and modern living options in Australia.

Innovative allotment solutions have opened up more room for lifestyle community facilities including parks, boardwalks, walkways and bikeways that combine to enhance the coast lifestyle.

The vision for Sunshine Cove was for a coastal, urban lifestyle community where individuality and the freedom of space remained paramount.
