Excavator-ready mosaic on coast expansion
Mosaic Property Group is continuing its expansion in South East Queensland on the Sunshine Coast, filing plans for a twin-tower apartment development overlooking Cotton Tree Beach.
The Maroochydore development comprises two eight-storey residential buildings with 41 apartments spread over the two buildings.
The Bureau Proberts-designed project sits on a 1,821 sq m amalgamated site of three blocks of houses at 17 The Esplanade and 62-64 Memorial Drive.
This is the third Mosaic project in Maroochydore at the back of the 86-apartment Avalon on Duporth Avenue and the sold-out Lorient, a 15-penthouse tower next door.
Building 1 facing the Esplanade has seven full-floor apartments, while Building 2, which faces Memorial Drive, will accommodate 33 apartments on the tallest floors.
“Inspired by the natural coastal surroundings of Maroochydore, Cotton Tree consists of two architecturally designed mid-rise apartment buildings that uniquely respond to the local context,” the design report states.
“Taking inspiration from sweeping headlands, the two buildings complement each other with articulated facades, soft scalloped shapes and lightweight protective elements representing the coastline sculpted by the ocean over time.
“The Memorial Avenue building is showcased by strong exterior forms, luxurious yet resilient materials, and an emphasis on generous outdoor living spaces.
“The building facing the Esplanade is a unique architectural statement, with sculpted edges that ebb and flow through the exteriors of the building.”
▲ Mosaic Property Group’s third project in Maroochydore overlooks the mouth of the river and comprises two towers and 41 apartments.
A ground plan connects the two buildings as well as leisure facilities including a swimming pool.
Mayroochydore is seeing significant development as construction ramps up in the emerging $2.5 billion CBD.
But finding development opportunities is not easy on the constrained Sunshine Coast.
In November 2020, Walker Corporation, SunCentral Maroochydore and the Sunshine Coast Council signed a development agreement worth $2.5 billion to develop the town centre.
The agreement will provide 160,000 m² of commercial and retail space and approximately 4,000 residential apartments over the next 15 to 20 years.
Maroochydore town center has also been designated for a 2032 Olympic Village.
Walker Corporation provides 1374 beds to accommodate athletes competing on the Sunshine Coast in football, basketball, marathon, mountain biking, cycling and kitesurfing.
