Sekisui concept plan 08Oct14

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.

Note the disclaimer in the fine print at the end of the video... there are no guarantees regarding the accuracy of the concept plans or simulations. The community sees beyond the 'gloss, spin and you won't even know it's there' line.  Low-rise development sympathetic to the natural evironment, amenity and community is supported- not the extreme departure from the newly adopted planning scheme to go from 8.5m to almost 50m!  This courting of council by a developer to make drastic and unwanted changes to the planning scheme which puts the entire Sunshine Coast at risk of unwanted density in inappropriate locations is not on.  We need to have our say- clearly & loudly
