Construction of $70m development awarded to McNab Sunshine Coast
The much-anticipated, luxurious apartments of Beach Life Alex are set to come out of the ground in the coming weeks with Cube Developments appointing local construction company McNab to turn the impressive vision into a reality.
McNab Construction Manager Carl Nancarrow said the team were delighted to secure the project and with designs currently being finalised, expected to turn the sod on the 58 high-end apartments within the next eight weeks.
“Beach Life Alex will be a truly iconic building and we are very confident that in partnership with the high-calibre team of developer Scott Juniper from Cube Developments and project managers Project Urban, we will deliver a new benchmark for luxury in Alexandra Headland and the greater Sunshine Coast region,” Mr Nancarrow said.
“These apartments ― which are already 55 per cent sold ― will offer uninterrupted, never-to-be-built-out views of the ocean to the east and the lake to the west in the heart of the vibrant Alexandra Headland community. They really represent the lifestyle we love on the Sunshine Coast.”
The project will provide a significant boost to the local construction industry with McNab committing to local subcontractors and suppliers wherever possible during the 18-month construction period.
“The project will see over 1,000 construction workers contribute to the project over the 18-month build period with a forecasted 150 on site at a time at its peak. We are very proud to be a part of the Sunshine Coast community and therefore are committed to supporting it on all our jobs. Our track record shows we usually achieve around 95 per cent of local trades and suppliers so this build is good news for the Sunshine Coast.”
Developer Scott Juniper said this formed part of the decision-making process in appointing McNab to deliver the signature project.
“We like McNab’s philosophy and the fact that over 85 per cent of their work stems from repeat and referral clients gives us a very high level of confidence in their ability to deliver a quality build,” Mr Juniper said.
“Beach Life Alex will offer some of the Coast’s most luxurious apartments and our priority was to appoint a construction partner that shares our vision for the project and has the capability to execute it. We very much look forward to working with Carl and his team and hope this is a start of a strong local partnership going forward.”
The 2276sq m Beach Life 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.
“We have had a high level of interest locally and from outside the region, particularly given we are offering three-bedroom apartments with direct ocean views at just under $1 million,” Mr Juniper said.
“Beach Life Alex represents exceptional value for money which is reflected in the strong sales figures we have seen to date. The diversity of our offering including apartments, sky homes and penthouses ranging from $580,000 to $2.49 million makes beachfront living accessible to a broad range of buyers, whether as owner-occupiers or investors.”
McNab ― which employs over 50 people at its Maroochydore office ― will commence construction of Beach Life Alex as soon as the final design phase has been completed.
