Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Mackay’s Harbour Beach is making way for redefined coastal living with exclusive, upscale beachfront townhomes under construction in response to market demand for low-maintenance living by the sea.
‘The Beach Collective’ features seven luxury townhomes by national developer Urbex, in collaboration with Bold Architecture that pays homage to the coastal surrounds and is a first for the Mackay region.
“We are seeing a shift in lifestyle demand across Queensland, as an increasing number of buyers prioritise low maintenance living and convenience in their home search. Consequently, there has been a surge in the popularity of townhomes, duplexes, and apartments,” Urbex Realty General Manager, Craig Covacich, said.
The Beach Collective will form part of the Sol Precinct, Urbex’s Dunes Harbour Beach development, and will offer freehold two-level architecturally designed homes with convenience, functionality and comfort front of mind.
“We are introducing a distinctive dimension of coastal living in the Mackay region; revisiting a two-storey build, expanding the living spaces to suit low maintenance living whilst enhancing the comfort and relaxed luxury that is expected of a beachfront home. This innovative approach caters to meet the demand of buyers who desire a luxurious home without the associated maintenance.
“The added bonus that was a non-negotiable for the development is the connectivity to open space. We have really emphasised the recreational nodes featured within these homes and they truly highlight the beach as the backyard playground buyers want.
“The chance to acquire beachfront property is extremely rare due to limited land availability along the South East coastline, and with the added benefit of being beachside and within 7km of Mackay’s CBD with established amenities, this presents a very rare opportunity for beachside living.”
Each of the seven homes is absolute beachfront and features ocean view lines of the Coral Sea, with unique high-level finishes, luxury appointments, state-of-the-art appliances, with a four- bedroom, three-bathroom configuration, indoor and outdoor living on both levels with alfresco spaces, low maintenance landscaped areas and a plunge pool for maximum comfort.
Construction of two out of the seven townhomes is underway, with Urbex delivering the project.
“We know consumer confidence in new builds is low, and as a result, Urbex will manage the build for each buyer to mitigate any potential risk in increasing construction and supply costs.”
Located 7 kilometres from Mackay’s CBD, Dunes Harbour Beach boasts kilometres of
beachfront with spacious homesites blended within areas of native bushland. Over 30 per cent of the development is committed to open space, conservation and parkland to ensure Dunes remains a pristine destination.
With uninterrupted views of the Coral Sea, exclusive beach access, and close integration to the upcoming tourism, dining and retail hub, The Beach Collective is currently under construction and interested buyers are encouraged to register their interest by visiting
