The Maroochydore City Centre in the heart of the Sunshine Coast is the ideal location for companies seeking CBD offices in one of Australia's fastest growing regions.

Declared a Priority Development Area by the Queensland Government, the Maroochydore City Centre is expected to service a wider catchment of over two million people by 2030.

Smart technology is being embedded throughout the Maroochydore City site with city-wide smart signage, Wi-fi, real time transport information, movement sensors, smart lighting in public places and access to a high speed, fibre optic digital network providing internet speeds equivalent to Australia’s fastest.

The new Maroochydore City centre will create an energetic commercial and city lifestyle with night life, event venues, al fresco dining, boulevard shopping, urban recreation, community facilities and water’s edge experiences. 

The climate and existing natural assets of the Sunshine Coast have informed the city centre design, with 40 percent of the site to be waterways and parks.

Maroochydore City centre will be serviced by frequent and reliable public transport, with a transit plaza in the CBD catering for all modes of commuting and providing direct access to business, retail, dining and residential precincts.

This unparalleled development represents a region coming of age, attracting a new wave of residents, businesses and skilled workers who enjoy having first class facilities on their doorstep.

  • prime commercial office space
  • exclusive retail
  • fine dining
  • entertainment facilities
