Maroochydore CBD Precinct is Taking Shape

The new Maroochydore CBD Precinct is starting to take shape with construction about to start on the first buildings within the precinct, which is on the site of a former golf course not far from the ocean.

“Once complete, the new city centre will be one of the most connected CBDs in Australia in terms of communications and public transport, which will benefit the entire suburb, not just the city centre,” SunCentral Maroochydore chief executive John Knaggs says.

“Sunshine Coast businesses will all be able to take advantage of the high-speed global connectivity delivered through the new international sub-sea cable and light rail to the heart of the site, which will make it easier for people to get around Maroochydore and access main train routes.”

The long-term project, set on about 50 hectares, is now in its second stage, with it expected to create 15,000 permanent jobs on the Sunshine Coast as well as inject billions into the local, regional, and state economies.

“Maroochydore is becoming a stronger hub and centre of attraction, with businesses, particularly those at the forefront of technology, keen to get a foothold in the area,” Mr Knaggs said.

Plans are also under way for a light rail to link Maroochydore to Caloundra, subject to funding, while Sunshine Plaza recently underwent a $440 million redevelopment. Along with the Sunshine Coast Airport expansion, with a second runway and associated facilities due to be completed in 2020.
