EARTHWORKS HAVE COMMENCED AT GEMLIFE MORETON BAY, A NEW $340 MILLION ECO-INSPIRED OVER-50S RESORT SET ON A PARK SITE OF ALMOST 150 HECTARES AND BORDERING DECEPTION BAY CONSERVATION PARK.
Stage One earthworks began late last month and are expected to take between five and six months.
GemLife Director and CEO Adrian Puljich said when completed, the site would feature 553 homes – each with no rear neighbours – and unparalleled green spaces including wildlife-rich wetlands, conservation area trails, seven private lakes, parklands and more.
“This will be GemLife’s largest site to date and there will be nothing like it in Australia. Every home will have an outlook onto either a lake or parkland, letting residents feel like they’re part of this unique coastal oasis,” he said.
The resort will also boast exceptional green credentials with renewable energy generated, used and stored on site. Biodiversity will be promoted through its green spaces and building materials have been chosen to minimise environmental impact.
“We’re going above and beyond to provide meaningful impacts both financially and in terms of social responsibility. The development will enhance the surrounding environment through planting, regenerating and providing extra ecological value to protect the habitats of migratory birds and other native wildlife,” Adrian said.
Facilities will include a superb lakeside Country Club which faces a nine-hectare lake, architecturally designed recreational precincts with health club and lifestyle pavilion, resort-style swimming pools, a network of trails for walking and cycling, and much more.
Stage One will be released in the third quarter of 2023.
