Work on the first group of homes at Paradise Lakes Willawong, an emerging residential precinct at the former sand mine in Oxley Creek, will soon begin after a decade-long wait for the approval of the development.
Stage 1 of this project will cover 37 blocks of dwelling spaces ranging from 405 to 830 square metres in size. Of these blocks, 33 have reportedly been sold whilst Uniland Pty Ltd also applied to build a six-metre sculpture at the main entrance of Paradise Lakes Willawong on Leroy Road.
By the middle of 2021, the display village will be ready for other interested buyers as earthworks for Stage 2 gets underway as well.
Paradise Lakes is envisioned to be “a tranquil lakeside sanctuary” surrounded by natural bushland. Just 16 kilometeres off Brisbane CBD, the site is a short drive to schools, shopping centres and lifestyle or dining precincts in suburbs like Sunnybank, Algester and Calmvale.
“This exclusive community will integrate with an existing natural habitat to provide a variety of premium homesites, some of which offer views of the adjacent lakes and bushland surrounds,” the developers said.
Uniland Pty Ltd bought and rehabilitated the 55-hectare land in 2009 and proposed to build a 280-housing site that will complement Brisbane City Council’s $100-million Oxley Creek Transformation.
The project will also feature the following facilities:
- a 20-kilometre recreation trail from the Brisbane River to Warril Parkland in Larapinta
- a world-renowned birdwatching destination at Oxley Creek Common
- a regional parkland at Archerfield Wetlands
- progressive improvements to habitats, vegetation, waterway stability and water quality
Incidentally, Stage 1 of Warril Parkland, a nature-based adventure playground on 1059 Paradise Road, has been completed and opened for recreational use.
