Commercial Centre in Pipeline for Booming Bli Bli

By Ed Hackenberg

One of the fastest growing towns on the Sunshine Coast is set to welcome a mixed use commercial centre.

Plans have been revealed for the 400sqm, three level Bli Bli Village Centre, which will set alongside the River Markets Shopping Complex on David Low Way. The $21m Village Centre will sit on 7920sqm block and is being developed by Roz and Michael White who also own the Bli Bli River Markets.

The Village centre will cater for a gym, a tavern, professional offices and a diverse range of medical practices in spaces ranging from 94sqm to 500sqm. Approval from the Sunshine Coast Council is expected soon and construction should start before Christmas. It is likely to take 12 months to complete.

Bli Bli has undergone a major transformation over the past few years, according to Damian Brown of PRD Project Marketing Sunshine Coast. But he said, 2015 should be it’s biggest ever. “This historic community that many people know by the iconic Sunshine Castle tourist attraction is experiencing a coming of age at the moment,” Mr Brown Said. “There has been enormous growth over the past couple of years, and while government projections show a population growth rate for Bli Bli of 2.5 per cent, our on-the ground research of sales and new homes built and occupied homes showed a net increase of 450 residents – or closer to 7 per cent growth. We expect this sort of growth to continue well into this year as well.”

There has been more than $522 million in infrastructure investment planned for the area over the next decade to cater for the ongoing growth, this includes a major new housing project, a major new retail, medical and commercial development, schools and transport and recreation infrastructure. $100 million of this will be rolled out this year.
