Palmview is a A$4 billion master-planned community to be completed over the next 20 years, and consists of three key development areas. Harmony is the first development area which started construction in 2017.
Construction in two smaller development areas is expected to begin in late 2019.
The master planned area totals 926 hectares and is bound by the Bruce Highway to the west and Chancellor Park and the Mooloolah River National Park to the north – and is in close proximity to the University of the Sunshine Coast.
The first major road link into the master planned development opened on 26 June 2017. This 2km road link forms part of an overall investment of A$165 million in major road infrastructure that will be delivered by the major landholders.
More than 7,000 dwellings will be constructed in the new master-planned community and will house around 17,000 people.
Palmview will include a centrally located District Activity Centre of 15,000 square metres with a traditional main street layout, a 3ha town park, civic plazas, a transit station, a district community facility, two Local Activity Centres of 3,500 square metres each, a 20,000 square metre Local Employment Area Precinct, and a private and public school. In addition around A$100 million will be spent creating parks and sports fields.
- The three key development areas provide a range of residential, commercial and retail opportunities supported by more than 400 hectares of parkland, sports, recreational and ecological open space.
- Over 40,000m2 gross floor area of business, commercial and retail opportunities will be available in the town centre and two local retail centres. A high-quality local industrial area and business park will be developed over the life of the project.
- The first stages of residential development land began construction in 2017, including over 700 residential lots and a retirement village, now nearing completion.
- Further stages of residential land across the three development areas are currently in the market.
