Major development to change face of Coast street and suburb
A 13-UNIT development has been launched, touted as a new entry statement to one of the Coast's busiest areas in the midst of a major overhaul.
Picasso Mooloolaba has been submitted to the Sunshine Coast Council for approval, the latest in a string of residential developments in the beachside suburb.
The seven-storey project is proposed to replace a single-storey home at 3 Naroo Ct, Mooloolaba.
Sitting on busy Walan St, near the Mooloolaba Pub and located within the Mooloolaba Heart precinct, with a zoning limit of 25m in height, the project is set to deliver 13 three-bedroom units.
In the development report submitted by Project Urban on behalf of Naroo Projects Pty Ltd planners have outlined the aim to shake up what is a residential street, as well as replace what's been described as an "eyesore” alongside the development site.
Currently filled with maximum two-storey homes, the Picasso project would mark a significant change for the street, on what has been described as a key precinct site.
The developers have pledged to also give a facelift to the vacant block adjoining the Picasso site, creating an urban plaza with seating, shade trees and concrete paving.
The vacant site will be affected by widening of Brisbane Rd and planning documents state the council also intends to extend Naroo Ct further towards the beach, to connect with Muraban St, creating another "key precinct entry site” to an upgraded Mooloolaba beachfront.
"Picasso's built form presents a unique architectural design that will provide a recognisable entrance into the heart of Mooloolaba,” the planner's report reads.
The development sits within the height limits, coming in at 25m above natural ground level.
All units will include 12sq m of balcony space while a communal space on the top floor will include a pool, barbecue and deck area.
Parking for 16 vehicles (13 resident and three visitor) has also been proposed, with all to be provided on the ground level.
Waste collection and service vehicles will access via the Naroo Ct frontage.
