Seachange Kick start

15 Nov, 2012

Gold Coast City Council’s kick start Initiative could not have come at a better time.
Multi-award wining over 50s lifestyle community, Seachange Village Arundel, can’t keep up with demand and needs to build at least one home a week just to meet the demands of existing clients.

The introduction of the kick start initiative by the Gold Coast City Council has allowed the developers of Seachange Village to kick start another stage of the development and continue on with what has been a very successful year.

The Driftwood Park release has been on the drawing board for some time now but the developers have been holding back on commencement of work being a substantial release of thirty six homes. “For any developer, an undertaking of this size in this market means a significant contribution to infrastructure charges. With the kick start initiative we have now been able to redesign the development and focus on delivering affordable lifestyle homes for purchasers” Said Project Director Phil Goodman.

Seachange Village has continuously bucked all market trends over the last 3 years and have been acknowledged by the UDIA, winning best seniors development in QLD for 2011. Just last week they were also a finalist in the Special Purpose Housing category for the QLD HIA industry awards.

Sales Manager Alex McMahon says a number of factors have led to the sales success this year, however the underlying philosophy of providing a lifestyle community that is beneficial for the mind, body and soul has hit a chord with new residents.

“We are pressed to build enough homes and are now selling our display stock just to met the demand,” Mr McMahon says. “People are also happy to buy off the plan, which is a first for us as we have usually built homes and then sold them. The kick start initiative will now allow us to focus on a more affordable housing option for people wanting to live in the best lifestyle resort in Queensland”, said Mr McMahon

“Apart from the lifestyle on offer and the extensive country club facilities, Seachange is proving to be the preferred community for active over 50s and retires on the Gold Coast.”

The centerpiece of Seachange Village is the multi-million dollar residents-only 5-Star Country Club, which includes the most extensive selection of social, recreational and educational facilities available in any over 50s lifestyle community resort.

The community also boasts a large range of 7 star Greensmart energy efficient architecturally designed homes, ensuring a unique streetscape variety throughout the village.

Seachange is centrally located opposite the Arundel Plaza shopping and medical centre and within a short drive to the best of Gold Coast beaches, a range of golf courses and shopping, and just minutes from the M1 with easy access to Brisbane and northern NSW.

Residents enjoy fixed cost living with no stamp duty, conveyancing fees, exit fees (DMF) or council rates.
