Gateway to Coast land snap up opportunity for buyers
THE Capricorn Coast's first fully integrated business and industry precinct was launched this week.
Livingstone Shire Council spent $3.5m to buy 56ha of land to establish the park in April and nine Stage One lots will be released for prospective buyers to tender expressions of interest.
Livingstone Mayor Bill Ludwig said the development, located five minutes from the Yeppoon CBD and beachfront, would provide business and industry with the opportunity of low development costs.
"The Gateway is strategically positioned to capitalise on the region's strong growth," he said.
"The integrated business and industry precinct will have the capacity to meet the Capricorn Coast's projected growth needs for the next 15 years and service the needs of the broader region."
Capricorn Enterprise chairman Graham Scott said The Gateway delivered an exceptional development package.
"When you combine superb location with low development costs and excellent transport links, The Gateway is really an unbeatable proposition," Mr Scott said.
"Add to that readily available affordable housing and a highly skilled resident workforce and it is easy to understand why The Gateway will have such a strong competitive edge."
Stage One included business offices, showrooms, large format retail and light industry facilities.
Mr Scott said Stages Two and Three would be suited to medium to general industry uses. "With the Capricorn Coast continuing to grow at 3% to 5% annually, there is already strong interest from established Rockhampton businesses looking to consolidate their market position."
