LocationHervey Bay, Queensland
PTI assisted our Client from their initial feasibility studies of the site at the time of purchasing, then to develop a design and concept for the site, and then to source a joint venture partner ~ who was one of our other Clients. We then provided comprehensive Architectural services to lead the design team, gain Planning Approval, then provide the documentation for the Sales and Marketing stages and then to provide detailed design and documentation services and assistance during construction.
In the process our project team worked with Council to extend the runway of the local airport to be able to take larger planes and together with us creating a new major hotel for the town we managed to help to change Hervey Bay from being in the minds of many the ’access town’ for Fraser Island to being a significant destination and “tourism town” in itself.
The project was to design a strata apartment resort with Conference and Function Facilities, Restaurant, Bar, Health Club and retail areas that made best use of the location in the town and along the beach front, as well as the site, the views, the sunlight. Of the 132 apartments, the majority are 2-bedroom, most having 2-keys and with sub-penthouses and penthouses on the top floors.
The design of the property expresses the special character and ambience of the site and of the town. Almost every apartment has a view and takes advantage of the northerly orientation. This enables and showcases the special pleasures of the property which are built around those of sitting by the pool in the sun, gazing out over the sparkling waters and enjoying the feeling of peace, relaxation and freedom that come from escaping from the usual demands of day to day life. The large pool and recreation area to the front of the property, with its accompanying shops, Bar, Restaurant and Function facility activate the street and providing a new major attraction and destination for residents and visitors to the town.
