Plans for a residential subdivision as part of a planned $106-million mixed-use estate in Brisbane’s northern growth corridor have been approved by the Moreton Bay Regional Council.
Developer KDL Property Group has been given the green light to break ground on the six-stage development to be known as Avaline at Burpengary East.
It comprises the creation of 188 home sites—reduced slightly from a previously proposed 192 lots—as well as a medical precinct and childcare centre.
The council has granted approval for the $77-million residential component of the project, which is earmarked for seven lots spanning 13.6ha.
Construction of stage one, on the corner of Old Bay and Maitland roads, is due to start in September.
KDL Property Group managing director Kent Leicester said the lots would range from 294sq m to 500sq m with 2.6ha of the estate preserved as open green space, parklands and koala habitat.
He said Avaline—a name meaning breath of life—was targeting a diversity of buyers from those first entering the property market through to growing families, upgraders and downsizers.
“Our new estate is a boutique bayside community with protective design and landscaping covenants to provide an ideal lot to build a new home and ensure the quality of your address is preserved,” Leicester said.
It is about 40 minutes’ drive from Brisbane’s CBD and 50 minutes from the Sunshine Coast.
“Avaline offers easy access to schools and major shopping including Westfield North Lakes and supermarket precincts, while Burpengary railway station and the Bruce Highway are only five minutes away,” Leicester said.
Moreton Bay Regional Council is assessing KDL’s plans for the $29 million commercial component of the estate, which includes a childcare centre and allied health precinct with provision for general practioners, pharmacy, pathology, and physiotherapy services.
“It’s a major attraction for any new development to be able to offer shopping, education, childcare, transport and allied health options right on the doorstep of residents,” Leicester said.
KDL’s other residential estate in Burpengary East—Dakota, totalling 70 lots—has sold out and home construction is under way.
Listed property giant Ingenia Communities Group recently revealed plans to upsize its development within a “super block” of land lease communities at Burpengary East.
The holiday park and senior living player has filed a proposal to add 47 relocatable home lots to an existing approval for an 11.5ha site. If approved, it will increase the number of lots in Ingenia’s Freshwater over-50s lifestyle community project to 276.
