2021 has arrived and the year ahead promises to be another action-packed one for GemLife with new resorts coming on line and several exciting launches and special events in the works.
2020 was a huge year for GemLife with four new resorts added to our growing number of locations and construction powering ahead at sites around Australia. Despite the significant challenges of COVID-19, GemLife made great strides forward and it has been tremendously rewarding to see our communities grow and flourish.
On the Sunshine Coast, residents at GemLife Maroochy Quays are enjoying their stunning new Summer House, making the most of the beautiful resort-style swimming pool, pool house, garden croquet lawn, barbecue facilities and more. Work on the boardwalk is coming into the final stages and there was also excellent progress on the country club with the roof going on this month.
At GemLife Pacific Paradise construction on the outdoor pool and recreation precinct, the Paradise Pavilion, is well under way and remains on schedule for a mid-2021 opening.
On site at our Sunshine Coast hinterland resort, GemLife Palmwoods, civil works are continuing and we are currently on schedule to begin home construction by the middle of the year. Thanks to its charming and picturesque location, the resort continues to attract strong interest among those looking for a leaf-change, as seen by the excellent turn-out at our GemLife Palmwoods information session last month.
Construction is continuing at GemLife Gold Coast’s state-of-the-art sales experience centre, and the team is looking forward to seeing this unique building, which will help buyers get a more complete picture of what the resort will offer thanks to a suite of impressive interactive features.
At our picturesque rural resort in Highfields, Stage Five earthworks are continuing, as is residential construction in stages three and four.
Last month we welcomed GemLife Rainbow Beach’s new sales manager, Craig Dixon, to the GemLife team. Craig brings a wealth of local knowledge and experience to his role and will be an invaluable asset at our latest resort on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales – GemLife’s first in this vibrant region. The sales office is now open and Craig and the team look forward to introducing the GemLife lifestyle to this beautiful part of the coast.
In Victoria, at GemLife Woodend, our idyllic resort in the Macedon Ranges region, the resort’s outdoor recreational precinct, which includes a barbecue pavilion, bocce, pickleball and petanque courts, was completed. These outdoor facilities, along with the stunning lakeside country club, offer something for everyone to enjoy. The team made excellent headway on Stage Four civil works which were completed prior to the Christmas break.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our residents – current and future – a very happy new year and all the best for a wonderful 2021.
