It’s apparent in our many waterfront developments delivered over the years that we have an appreciation and inherent understanding of how to create a go-to-destination on the water’s edge. Our love for waterside development is what attracted us to Toondah Harbour. Lang Walker AO immediately recognised the potential for this magnificent location, inspiring a master plan that would transform the face of Redlands as we know it today to become a thriving tourist destination.
With an estimated start date of 2017, this project will see us revitalise Toondah Harbour with new housing – offering magnificent views across the bay. Complemented by retail and public facilities, such as a dedicated ferry terminal that will improve access and tourism to North Stradbroke Island. Inflating the local economy in a multitude of ways, the development will create employment and new business opportunities. Construction is expected to generate more than 1000 jobs and the destination itself a further 500 permanent jobs.
Spread over 67 hectares (17.5 on land and 49.5 over water), this $1.3 billion precinct will deliver residential dwellings, commercial space, retail and eateries within a contemporary urban village, new public open space and up to 400 berth marina. Beyond the precinct, the existing public realm including the park and encircling green space will be preserved and enriched with the introduction of a world-class waterfront boulevard that will span the length of the marina, providing a picturesque walking, running and cycling track for local residents and visitors alike to enjoy.
Toondah Harbour will become a destination in its own right, a dynamic community where families can live, socialise, work and shop. The wider master plan includes a hotel site, port facilities and significant investment into infrastructure and the wider community. This is in partnership with Redland City Council and Economic Development Queensland to support growth of the region.
Toondah Harbour will continue to play a critical role as the gateway to North Stradbroke Island and the Bay. The local economy has relied on sandmining in recent years but with Government slowly phasing it out, tourism will eventually take precedence. On the doorstep of Cleveland CBD, the site is only 40 minutes from Brisbane city centre.
