Habitat Development Group has turned the first sod on their $129 million mixed-use project, The Corso, the group’s second within the new Maroochydore CBD.

Habitat Development Group Director, Cleighton Clark said The Corso was expected to follow on from the success of the group’s first Maroochydore CBD project, Market Lane Residences, which will soon see the first residents moving into their new apartments.

“Market Lane Residences has been an overwhelming success. It’s sold out and its popularity flowed through to The Corso with strong enquiry and a current sales rate that sits at around 65% already,” he said.

Designed by Sunshine Coast-based K Architecture, tower one comprises 116 apartments including five penthouses, while tower two will home 42 apartments and 715 sqm of ground level retail.

Residents on the northern side will benefit from views toward the Maroochy River and Picnic Point and north-east to the Ocean, while residents on the southern side will overlook the Sunshine Coast Parade, the Corso, as well as the future waterways.

The project features a large resort pool on the ground floor, as well as a 600 sqm communal terrace on the fourth level which connects the two towers. There is also a 130 sqm dining room adjoining the terrace for the exclusive use of residents.

Clark said around 380 people would be employed on the project and that Habitat would look to source as many trades and materials as possible locally.

“We have a commitment to supporting local trades in all our projects as much as we can,” he said.

“We were concerned the labour shortages might affect the project given its size, but despite the labour shortages in the construction sector, it’s been really exciting to see how many local trades are interested in being involved in this new CBD project," Clark added.

“That means we’ll be able to resource the project without having to go outside the Sunshine Coast, which is great news for the local economy."

As the only residential apartment building within the new Maroochydore City Centre that's currently for sale, The Corso presents a rare opportunity, with future buyers within walking distance to renowned local hospitality operator, Tony Kelly’s bustling eateries, Market Bistro and Giddy Geisha in the Foundation Place building on Market Lane.

Completion for The Corso is slated for mid-2024.
