- Town plan shock: Sekisui’s plan for 17 beach buildings 08/10/2014
SEKISUI House revealed yesterday plans to erect 17 buildings on a 20ha piece of Yaroomba beachfront ranging from three to 10 storeys.
The project, an application for which will be lodged next year, includes five 10-storey buildings, each 39m tall, one nine-storey building, two of eight storeys, seven buildings to seven storeys and two between two to three storeys.
The company’s senior development manager Evan Aldridge said he wanted to release facts and images on the proposal so the community could provide feedback on correct information.

The Sunshine Coast Council is holding a special meeting on Tues 30 September to consider amendments to the recently adopted planning scheme – these are likely to allow Sekisui House to develop high rise hotels and apartments on the beach in Yaroomba. And possibly, Bokarina. This is the thin edge of wedge to allowing inappropriate high-rise development along our famously low-rise, environmentally significant natural coastline. Read more
