BELLINGHAM MARINE MEETS DEMAND FOR BOUTIQUE MARINAS IN BRISBANE
February 9, 2009
In Queensland, Australia, a series of boutique marinas and luxurious residential developments have popped up along Brisbane’s riverfront. Bellingham Marine Australia and local developers are working together to redefine waterfront living by offering upscale living accommodations in conjunction with world class marina facilities.
Named “Queensland’s best multilevel development” at the UDIA Suncorp Awards for Excellence in 2008, Castlebar Cove located on the Brisbane River at Kangaroo Point is comprised of two 12-level towers, each with luxury apartments, including grand penthouses on the 11th and 12th floors. The $98,000,000 development built by Sincere Properties also features a health club with steam room, sauna, hot and cold plunge pools, spa and change rooms complemented by an outdoor heated swimming pool, barbecue facilities, a river walk and a Bellingham Marine marina featuring 14 berths from 10 meters to 20 meters.
The luxurious new One Macquarie developed by Seymour Developments includes 36 residences across four individual buildings that parallel the waterfront in Brisbane’s historic Teneriffe. The residential buildings offer sweeping views and numerous amenities, including access to a private, boutique 17 berth marina built by Bellingham Marine.
The development at Norman Reach, a $100,000,000 venture by Stockland Developments includes apartments, penthouses, villas and homes. Located on the Brisbane River at Norman Park residents enjoy direct river access and an abundance of nearby recreational activities. Amenities include a 25-meter lap pool, gym and private 10-berth marina. The marina features Bellingham’s Pacific pontoons and accommodates boats 10 meters to 30 meters in length.
Bellingham Marine Australia’s Managing Director John Spragg said “it is a great achievement being involved with such prestigious local developments.” Bellingham Marine is well known for specializing in building large scale marinas, not only in Australia, but around the globe. However, many Brisbane River developers now need no reminding that Bellingham Marine Australia also specializes in smaller boutique marina construction for riverfront developments.
Bellingham Marine is the global leader in design, manufacture, and construction of marinas and related products and services. Bellingham Marine enjoys an unrivalled reputation within the industry and has installed more than 1.9 million square meters of docks throughout the world.
