McNab officially starts construction – 57 high-end beachside apartments
Today construction company McNab, along with developer Cube Developments, launched the start of construction at one of the Sunshine Coast’s most anticipated luxury developments Beach Life Alex, with residents expected to move in by late 2020.
McNab Construction Manager Carl Nancarrow said commencing work on the iconic development was good news for local trades and subcontractors given McNab’s commitment to supporting local on all their construction sites.
“We expect to have up to 200 staff and subcontractors onsite at peak times so the site will be a hive of activity over the coming months as Beach Life Alex comes out of the ground,” Mr Nancarrow said.
“We are delighted to work with Cube Developments to make these luxurious apartments a reality and having the team onsite today to officially get work underway is a great milestone after completing our final design phase.
“On average we achieve around 95 per cent of local trades on our projects so a development of this calibre will see an impressive injection into the local economy and a boost for our construction industry. We have great talent here on the Coast and have enjoyed developing excellent partnerships with the best in the business since opening our doors on the Sunshine Coast in 2017.
“I am confident this development will raise the bar for apartment living on the Sunshine Coast being one of the few remaining sites offering uninterrupted, never-to-be-built-out views of the ocean in the heart of the popular Alexandra Headland precinct.”
Developer Scott Juniper from Cube Developments said Beach Life Alex had been very well received by the market with more than 60 per cent of the 57 high-end apartments being sold and strong enquiry levels for the remaining apartments.
“The combination of uninterrupted ocean views to the east and lake views to the west means all apartments have their own appeal and there are still great opportunities to still secure a piece of Alex beachfront paradise,” Mr Juniper said.
“Our vision for Beach Life Alex is to offer buyers all that we love about the Sunshine Coast ― great views, a relaxed coastal lifestyle, a strong sense of community and easy access to some of the Coast’s best beaches and entertainment precincts.”
“It’s exciting seeing McNab commence work onsite as our plans come to fruition. We have great confidence in the team’s ability to delivery this high quality project and look forward to welcoming our first residents in spring next year.”
The Beach Life Alex site overlooks Alexandra Headland beach to the east and Nelson Park to the west. The building’s design incorporates a two-story atrium with a lush vertical garden and is split in two to increase natural lighting and ventilation.
Still on offer at Beach Life Alex are apartments, sky homes and penthouses ranging from $580,000 to $2.49 million and interest from both owner-occupiers and investors has been strong here on the Coast and further afield.
McNab employs over 50 people at its Maroochydore office and is currently working on eight other projects across the Sunshine Coast including recently commencing construction of Stockland’s The Terraces at Bokarina Beach.
