Developers Meriton are building a stormwater diversion project in Sydney's northern beaches suburb of Dee Why ahead of their development of the 18 level 356 apartment complex named the Lighthouse to be built on the corner of Pittwater Road and Howard Avenue.

Lighthouse will be built on the site purchased from Canadian group Brookfield for $52 million in 2013.

The development will eventually become a four-tower project with an upmarket retail centre, childcare facilities and commercial suites on the 1.44ha site.

The civil project, approved after extensive flood modelling of the development site, will divert existing stormwater system to alleviate previous flooding issues .

Meriton head Harry Triguboff said the aim was to provide Dee Why with a pulsating community heart.

“We intend to make this new town centre a vibrant destination for Dee Why’s residents – it will give the whole suburb a lift.”

The complex will contain 356 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, along with a number of resident facilities.
