The region's newset city centre at Maroochydore will be open to the public in the second half of this year.
The Maroochydore City Centre will provide 2000+ residential apartments, a 250 room premium hotel, 25,500 square metres of convention facilties, 150,000 square metres of commercial floor area and 65,000 square metres of retail floor area. The 53 hectares of Greenfield Site will also produce 17.78 hectares of waterways and parklands, and 22.75 hectares of development site.
Development Manager SunCentral's CEO John Knaggs said the first commercial buildings would also start to rise from the ground in the latter half of this year.
After a joint venture deal was struck last year which is set to create a new city hall and possible university campuses in the new CBD Mr Knaggs said they were currently closing in on finalising deals for at least two other commercial buildings.
He expected those to be complete within the next month or so and said 2018 was shaping up as a "really exciting year".
The first six months of this year will be busy as civil works are wrapped up on Stage 1A, in the northern third of the 53ha site, and above-ground works become visible with roads to be surfaced, footpaths constructed and landscaping to be carried out.
Mr Knaggs said the Aerodrome Road-Maud Street intersection upgrade was due for completion by the end of 2018 and expected the first residential developments to begin from early-2019.
