A Visionary Redevelopment of an Historic Queensland Site

The site of Kernow Charters Towers North Queensland allows the imagination of any property investor to run wild. Located on elevated ground with 200 acres of land, and with planning for a mixed-use community of 400+ dwellings in a lifestyle environment, the opportunity combines both the services of being in a dynamic country town along with the peace and tranquillity of landscaped gardens and outback cattle country.

We see the site evolving over time into a unique lifestyle community that combines the regeneration of the 1950s red brick buildings with new-build houses, purpose-built (starter homes/retirement) units and apartments.

Where we are now

Phase One of the development has focused on the redevelopment of the three existing buildings situated in the central crescent of the site to produce what will be a unique, eclectic development of up to 33 apartments and cottages, each one designed to make it a special environment in which to stay or live, whether just for one night or on a more permanent basis.

The first fifteen units of Phase One have been completed and have been operating as short-stay/overnight accommodation since 25th November 2016. The apartments range from the amazingly high-ceilinged, high spec, 185m² Executive Apartment with private garden and direct pool access, through to our cosy but comfortable 79m² Courtyard Garden Apartments, all fully furnished.

Where we’re going

The next major projects are the rejuvenation of the main Admin Building which will be the central focus of Phase One but will retain many of the quality-build features from 1954 when it was first built, and the Crystal Lagoon – a clearwater lake with restaurant, café, kids play area and other features including an amphitheatre. Expressions of Interest for landblocks around the lake will be available in 2017.

Phase One will act as a springboard to launch the development but will be a standalone environment in which to stay, live and relax.
