Coffs Harbour, the popular tourist hotspot on the New South Wales North Coast, is set for a rare new apartment development.

Plans have been filed by Canberra-based developer Core Developments for a two-building, 80-apartment development across a 3,055 sqm site at 69-73 Ocean Parade, the dress circle street facing the ocean.

The buildings on the site, which includes the Ocean Park Motel and Holiday Apartments Motel, will be demolished to make way for the Stewart Architecture-designed building which will comprise 31 one-bedroom apartments, 36 two-beds, and 13 three-bed units.

There will be 1,150 sqm of communal open space, as well as 121 resident and visitor parking spaces across the basement and podium levels.

Three pedestrian access points have been incorporated into the development. Each building features a primary entrance leading to a centralized lobby and lift core, while all units on the ground floor will have their individual entry point from the street.

The seven-level buildings offers two communal open spaces. The central courtyard communal podium and pool area is located on level one. The 770 sqm will have a swimming poo, lounge spaces, a fully rquipped kitchen

Crowning the building will be a 380 sqm rooftop garden with extensive landscaping and another fully equipped kitchen.

The building will sit in a sought-after pocket on Ocean Parade, across the road from The Park Beach Hotel and the popular pub Hoey Moey, as well as the Park Beach Bowls Club.

"The form and external appearance of the development significantly enhance the quality and amenities of the immediate public domain, particularly considering the site's prominent location along Ocean Parade," the documentation submitted by Urbane Studio as part of the application noted.

"Each ground-floor unit features its own individual entry and directly addresses the street, complemented by a landscaped courtyard. Furthermore, the formalization of the rear laneway is anticipated to make a substantial contribution to further improving the public domain."
