1. Mirador, Chevron Island
Developer: Citimark Properties

A unique blend of built form and nature, Mirador has been designed by Cottee Parker as part of the coastal identity of Chevron Island.

The 71 luxury residences respond to ocean views while reinforcing a coastal through a refined material palette including its white façade, bronze metal features and natural stone elements.

Two, three and four-bedroom apartments are generously sized with butlers’ pantries, island benches, wrap-around balconies and walk-in robes.

Extensive landscaping is also a key design feature, with cascading greenery softening the built form whilst providing a lush subtropical backdrop to the residential recreational spaces including the pool, gym, wellness and barbeque areas.

2. Seasons, Birtinya
Developer: Cube Developments

Cottee Parker has been engaged on a new residential project by Cube Developments that is certain to attract young property buyers.

Situated in the growing coastal suburb, Birtinya, Seasons is a trendy $102 million apartment development with almost 150 units in two, three and four-bedroom configurations.

Architect Sandra Brown said an emphasis on aesthetics, generously sized apartments and a number of amenities was expected to impress young buyers.

“We have focused on a range of materials to achieve a sleek, urban feel [with] timber, aluminium, plenty of greenery, as well as getting a lot of the off-form concrete into the design,” she said.

3. Nature by Cube, Cotton Tree
Developer: Cube Developments

Nature, located in the small waterfront suburb of Cotton Tree, will deliver 12 luxury residences.

Designed by Cottee Parker, the development sits high above the Maroochy River, surrounded by green parkland and ever-shifting tidal sand bars.

“The brief that Cube gave us [was] we want the best the Sunshine Coast has ever seen”, Sandra Browne said.

The sculptural project features a glass façade and hosts a number of amenities, including a 25-metre lap pool, gym, steam room and spa, yoga lawn and sun lounging areas.

4. Lowanna Beach Resort, Buddina
Developer: WOW Group

Lowanna, an Aboriginal word that is often used to describe exquisite beauty, is the namesake of the newest development to hit Buddina.

Three buildings make up the new Lowanna Beach Resort offering, each presenting a different perspective of the surrounds, and connected by centralised resort facilities.

All residents can enjoy the luxurious landscaped gardens, light-filled, tropical open communal areas and pool and barbeque facilities.

Residences boast generous floorplans, large balconies, plenty of storage and high-quality finishes.
