Stockland has received approvals for its proposed $830 million Birtinya Town Centre masterplan residential, retail and office development on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

Set over 18 hectares, Stockland's project is estimated to generate more than 550 jobs during construction and more than 14,600 new full time jobs on completion.

The first stage of the town centre masterplan is the $87 million Stockland Birtinya Shopping Centre, with works expected to commence before Christmas. 

Stockland Group Executive and CEO of commercial property John Schroder said the new subregional retail town centre would embrace its coastal location with architectural finishes, extensive landscaping and natural ventilation, offering a relaxed atmosphere representing the culture of the Sunshine Coast.

Stockland Birtinya will be the heart of this vibrant and thriving future town centre featuring a flagship Coles and Aldi supermarket, two mini-majors, an open-air, late night dining precinct, some 30 specialty retailers and 522 car parking spaces.”

“Upon completion of the first stage next year, this new centre will service a primary trade area of 15,000 people, offering a diverse dining, entertainment and retail offering. It will be a great place for convenience shopping, having a coffee along the waterfront or meeting friends for dinner and drinks.”

Stockland will also develop a service station and two drive-thru tenancies adjacent to the shopping centre in the first stage of development. A second stage of the shopping centre will be developed in future stages taking the total retail to 20,000 square metres.

Stockland has committed to a 5 Star Green Star As Built rating for the new Stockland Birtinya Shopping Centre, featuring solar panels and end of trip facilities among other sustainability measures. 

It plans to develop a subregional retail town centre, a new civic plaza, walkable waterfront along Lake Kawana and open green space - all integrated with commercial, health related research facilities and high density residential.
