Collaboration and innovation spark new CBD

Fri Apr 29, 2016

Exciting developments will help cement the Maroochydore Central Business District as the state’s most vibrant, high-tech commercial hub.

SunCentral Maroochydore is determined to build a new city centre that encourages entrepreneurship, innovation and collaboration and is appealing to business and professional services seeking a forward-thinking environment.

To help achieve this, we have formed a partnership with SPARK BUREAU, a not-for-profit co-working space and startup incubator with a strong record of helping local businesses launch and grow.

SPARK BUREAU will be one of the first groups to call the new CBD home, providing support and advice for startups through its structured business incubator and accelerator programs.

SPARK BUREAU is also developing further partnerships to offer professional business and technology education services to local firms, students and entrepreneurs.

In other news, SunCentral Maroochydore is delighted with the high level of interest from potential investors and prospective tenants and we are working towards launching a formal Expressions of Interest process.

On site, significant bulk earthworks remain underway and the CBD’s future roads are starting to take shape.

Work has commenced to realign the Maud Street drain that runs through the site, allowing us to create an expanded and attractive waterway that will be a major drawcard for the CBD, complete with waterfront dining and pedestrian promenades.

The contractor is also undertaking essential sewerage infrastructure upgrades on site to cater for future growth and we expect to announce the commencement of Stage 1 civil works in coming months.

As this work continues apace, we would like to thank you for your continued support for the vision for the new city centre, which will provide significant investment and employment opportunities for people on the Sunshine Coast and further afield.
