RPS has successfully assisted Stockland in obtaining Master Plan approval for the emerging residential communities on Birtinya Island and Birtinya Peninsula, having completed a comprehensive assessment process involving both local and state government agencies. Collectively, these communities will deliver up to 658 detached dwellings and 426 attached dwellings in a variety of unit types and configurations, thereby serving to provide a range of housing options for the expanding residential market. Planning is also underway to deliver up to 11,000m2 of commercial and retail floor space in the northern section of Birtinya Island, in conjunction with a further 540 attached dwellings that will ultimately form a nexus with the adjacent Kawana Town Centre.
RPS is also performing an ongoing integral role in establishing a renewed vision for the Bokarina Beach site, facilitating the preparation and lodgement of a hierarchy of master plan documents that will set the framework for delivering up to 293 detached residences in this prime beachside location, in addition to a further 829 medium-high density residential units. The development will also deliver upon a range of key public facilities including land for a Surf Life Saving Club, Public Access Club Facility and a Community Facility, all located adjacent to a considerable area of central open space that will play a key role in attracting local and regional visitors to the area.
The RPS team has assisted Stockland and all co-consultants achieve this renewed vision by understanding the possibilities of the site, the sequencing, future timeframes and the approval processes. Our broader involvement in the development of Kawana is both client focused and community collaborative, with RPS being represented on the Sunshine Coast University Hospital Business Industry and Development Opportunities Taskforce, the UDIA SSC Economic Development Subcommittee and the Sunshine Coast Business Council.
