Thought I'd start a thread on Cairns projects - I don't follow Cairns too closely but I do flip through the Cairns Post when I get time. Fell free to add any news you come across. Some of the bigger highrise apartments going up:

Mantova (uc?)
http://mantova.emanueleprojects.com.au


Pier Monde (approved)


Jack & Newell (uc)


Madison on Abbott (completed)


For other developments check out http://www.twhedley.com.au/
The Hedley Group is the most prolific developer in Cairns (and brings some nice projects to Townsville as well). The website above has heaps of pics of their other past and present developments.

was in Cairns last week, there are a few projects going up around the city probably 8-10 levels, with a few billboards around for projects what look up to 15 levels. so its not going off like gold coast but there is stuff happening. and with all the tourists coming through, im sure development will be strong. its great that its not booming to much because you don't get hounded by property people like on the gold coast

Courier Mail on Friday (p43) reports that Harbour Lights Apartments will begin soon. It will be 12 storeys with 193 apartments. Preliminary construction works will begin on September 13. It's next to the the redeveloped Trinity Inlet waterfront called Cityport. I'll keep a look out for renders so it can go on Emporis. If someone (Cairnsinite?) has some already please post.

To tell you the truth Oriolus. It's a Hedley city up there (Mainly to the fact it is the base of Hedley pty ltd). The Harbour Lights one is a Honeycombes development and they were awarded the contract earlier this year. There has been a couple of interesting developments going on up there and some have been completed. On the esplanade, There's a 13 storey development that had just finished called Trinity and on Lake street, there is a 10 storey development called mantova going on there. There has also been word of a 20 storey mixed use development not far from the piermonde development.

Gertzy - do you mean Trilogy? Are all the buildings completed?
Here's a render. The right building at 13 storeys needs to be added to Emporis if anyone has time.


This is from http://www.trilogyontheesplanade.com.au/

Amazing photo but the building with a box around it isn't Trilogy is it? - was it demolished to make way for Trilogy. I'm confused.

Not yet, It's just the First stage or the building on the right. The Developers (Thakral) have bought the All Seasons hotel and are going to demolish that to build the next to buildings

Big News - Cairns Newest Highrise is Complete

Its seems the 14s/47m Jack & Newell Apartments are finished. Whats more its been finished since January! I think they must be both residential and holiday apartments. This is the only picture of the finished product I can find.



Anyway time to update Emporis.
This gives Cairns 6 completed buildings over 12 storeys on Emporis.
I've also read something that implies that 17s/50m Pier Monde is now UC - it said completion was due mid 2005.

Harbour Lights looks really good - not as many wierd colours or shapes like other Honeycombes projects.
