Intrapac Property, the developers behind Torquay’s most successful residential project, The Quay, and their joint venture partners Brencorp Properties, officially launched the second and final stage of the project – Quay 2, with a family fun day community event, a commemorative tree planting and strong sales.
Surf Coast Mayor Rose Hodge and Andrew Katos, MP for Barwon South, attended the event, alongside the former landowners, the McCann family, whose grandfather once farmed the land.
The event included free paella, hot drinks, fairy floss, ice cream and a sausage sizzle run by the new Surf Coast Suns football club, who are sponsored by Quay 2. Bay FM broadcast from the location, whilst local kids utilised the bouncy castle, face-painting, balloons and a petting zoo.
Intrapac founder David Payes, who is also the current UDIA Victoria President, says: “When we started a decade ago with the vision for The Quay, we set about building a community, not just a sub-division. When people drove into the neighbourhood, we wanted it to feel coastal, to have architectural integrity and substantial open spaces, parks and playing fields. With the council’s help, we brought this vision to life and now take it a step further with Quay 2.”
The Quay, which won a UDIA Excellence Award in 2008, is a 580 lot residential subdivision between Torquay beach and the Surf Coast Highway. Quay 2 will consist of over 600 dwellings, with a mix of land lots and modern, medium-density townhomes.
“The Quay is still highly regarded for the quality of the urban design, landscaping and design guidelines,” says Maxwell Shifman, Chief Operating Officer for Intrapac Property. “Quay 2 will build on these themes, taking advantage of the most modern trends and standards to create an even more premium coastal neighbourhood. And with brilliant facilities such as the local playing fields, playground and skate park, new schools, and multiple shopping options coming soon, you will not find a better location on the Surf Coast.”
Intrapac Property was one of the first developers to recognise the “sea change” phenomenon driving demand for more coastal properties. The team’s hunch was right and in the last 12 years, the
town has grown more than 67 per cent with its population more than doubling since The Quay was first developed. Around 30% of that population growth was catered for at The Quay.
Quay 2 is also in close proximity to the unspoiled White’s Beach, coastal bike trails, adventure playgrounds for the kids, great schools, services such as medical, shopping and recreational facilities to suit young, growing families and downsizers alike. Lots start at $179,000. To register your interest visit www.quay2.com.au.
