Council approves new key projects as others move forward
BIG projects are popping up all over Rockhampton and Livingstone, with the new Ergon Energy depot only one of several key developments.
Rockhampton council recently approved the next stages of the Riverside Estate in Parkhurst which comprises 201 lots and public use land across stages nine to 16.
They also recently approved a service station and restaurant for Puma in Berserker, numerous vehicle depots and low-impact industry uses in Gracemere, and an extension to an aged accommodation village at Kawana, increasing it to 124 beds over two stages.
Other upcoming developments include Gallery Apartments and Skyview apartment complex, both planned alongside other riverbank high rises.
In last week's council meeting, Livingstone Mayor Bill Ludwig called for two of the Capricorn Coast's billion-dollar developments to move into the construction phase.
Tower Holdings' GKI Revitalisation is still to secure funding, while the Iwasaki development has produced a scaled-back model. Construction is underway on the Yeppoon foreshore, a development which links in with the Yeppoon CBD Master Plan to deliver a new water play area, new shade areas and amphitheatre terraces.
