$7.8m Development to be First of its Kind | Kele Property Group

A LUXURIOUS 19-unit development has been proposed for Rockhampton, with secure gated living and a private pool for each unit.

The $7.8 million development is the latest project for well-respected Rockhampton developers, Kele Property Group.

The 7500sq m development site is on 99 and 101 Pennycuick Street and overlooks the 8th hole of the Rockhampton Golf Course.

Part of the site was previously approved for a duplex in 2015.

The new proposal is for a multiple dwelling development with 19 single-storey separate buildings centred around an internal access driveway.

There would be 14 threebedroom units and five twobedroom units.

Each unit would have a lock-up garage, tandem car park and small private garden and backyard with a private pool.

There would be an additional nine visitor carparking spaces.

It would be secure gated living with unit intercoms and is set to be the first luxury development in Rockhampton of its kind.

The units have been architecturally designed by Design + Architecture with a contemporary building design of pitched roofs, verandas and cladding and timber design elements, suiting the surrounding Queenslander-style dwellings.

Residents of the units would never have to mow again as the units would be landscaped with shade trees, shrubs and turfed areas.

Plans for the development were lodged with Rockhampton Council this week by Gideon Town Planning.

The report states the development would expand on the range of housing opportunities within an established residential zone.

Pending council approval, construction is expected to start in October this year and would employ 40 local workers.

The units would be marketed and sold through Pat O’Driscoll Real Estate.

KPG are also about to start works on another project, Cocobrew Express, a $1.35m drive-through coffee shop on Albert Street.

Work is set to begin on site soon by Hutchinson Builders and is estimated to take four months.
