Mayor breaks ground at Hervey Bay

Hervey Bay locals have leaped at the chance to join new Fraser Coast over 50s community, Ingenia Lifestyle Hervey Bay, with the community recording an almost sell-out first stage just two months after its pre-sales launch in February.

The community officially turned its first sod on Friday 12th April at a breaking-ground ceremony onsite with Ingenia Development Director, Ed Wortman, and Fraser Coast Mayor Councillor, George Seymour.

Councillor George Seymour remarked on the value the new community would bring to the Fraser Coast region.

“The Fraser Coast is a great place to live; it is a healthy, vibrant and active community.

“I am really excited by Ingenia’s development here as it provides a very desirable lifestyle opportunity.

“This is the type of resort-style community living that people are looking for,” Cr Seymour said.

Set on 12 hectares, Ingenia’s new community will deliver more than 250 new homes for downsizers including a multi-million-dollar clubhouse with resort style pool, four-rink lawn bowls green, cinema, gym and sports bar.

Ingenia CEO Simon Owen said the Hervey Bay community had proven extremely popular with local downsizers, with almost 90 percent of the first release already reserved by keen buyers.

“Since the pre-sales launch earlier this year, we’ve had an extremely encouraging response from local downsizers who are eager to snap up homes within our new community,” Simon said.

“With our first release almost sold out, we are now looking at fast-tracking the second stage just to keep up with demand.

“The main drawcard for buyers has been our ability to provide a lifestyle that’s right for them and at an affordable price point as well.

“The fact we’re officially breaking ground on construction gives our clients more confidence to make the decision to downsize and live at Ingenia Lifestyle Hervey Bay.”
