Shoal Point Road Development

The Shoal Point Road Development, located on the northern beaches of Mackay in a rapidly growing regional town, consisted of 62 units designed to reflect the tropical site and proximity to the beach. As a popular tourist destination, Mackay is close to the Great Barrier Reef, and is part of Queensland’s mining boom. The development consists of two three/four storey apartment buildings connected by a shared basement car park and 6 blocks of attached two and three storey townhouses with diverse floor plans and façade treatments.

The development is configured around a “village square”, overlooked by apartments and townhouses. The communal recreation area includes a pool and picnic facilities. The two apartment buildings which overlook the public reserve to the east, are separated by an 11.3m pedestrian zone, which allows for a visual connection between the recreation area, the natural dune landscape beyond, and connects to the existing path to the beach.
