Exciting projects are being announced on the Sunshine Coast right now… but is your business ready to take advantage of these new opportunities?
With the new Sunshine Coast City Hall soon to be ready for construction in the Maroochydore CBD, this will represent the success as one of the fastest growing and most progressive regions in Australia. The future vision is that the Maroochydore City Centre will be the centre of Sunshine Coast’s economic and social activity and provide strong, long term community benefits. We have no doubt this $59.9 million dollar highly sustainable building will ensure lots of positive new interest to our region!
Another exciting project, is the first direct international telecommunications cable which is set to attract huge new investment opportunities to the Sunshine Coast, connecting our East Coast to global markets. The undersea fibre optic cable will future proof the Sunshine Coast telecommunications and increase our ‘Smart City’ capacity. This in turn will mean stimulating local business and creating new opportunity for current business owners.
The expansion of Sunshine Coast Airport has allowed international travel directly to us in regional Queensland. This project will make significant enhancements to the runways, terminals, control towers and associated utilities to enable the airport to accommodate larger aircrafts and by adding more flights to further destinations. This project is expected to invest $4.1bn into the local economy.
