Bli Bli is Gearing Up for It’s Commercial Centre

By Rachel Meyers

The town of Bli Bli will soon see the first stage of the $25 million commercial venture come to life in the coming months.  This venture is the biggest development project to date for Sunshine Coast locals Michael and Roz White.

Starting in September last year the Bli Bli Village Town Centre is scheduled to be completed by June 2019 and the excitement is building for this community.  The first stage is set to open this coming June, “It’s a lot of hard work to get a development of this size done,” Mr White said.

The White’s first development was in 2013 where they redeveloped the River Markets shopping centre, the home of one of their IGA stores. Their Bli Bli IGA sits alongside, Mount Coolum, Peregian Beach and Mooloolah Valley all run under the leadership of Roz.  From humble beginnings starting their careers running Night Owl Convenience stores on the Sunshine Coast to developers, the White’s have certainly made their mark on the Sunshine Coast commercial and retail landscape.

The Bli Bli Village Town Centre at the intersection of Bli Bli Road and David Low Way has been challenging and a big risk according to Mr White. “We are basically creating a town centre for Bli Bli because it never really had one.”

Stage One will include a floor each of retail stores, medical and professional suites. Mr White said that the medical floor tenants will include BLi BLi GP Dr Rod Parnian, QML Pathology, a dentist, a physiotherapist and a podiatrist.

The retail floor will consist of a pharmacy, gift shop, barber, hairdresser and charity shop, with his company moving to the professional floor. Mr White said he is looking to attract other professional offices such as accountants and solicitors to take up leases.

Principal of Ray White Bli Bli, Ed Hackenberg is delighted with the project and knows the inherent value and importance a commercial precinct of this nature will have on the town of Bli Bli.  “Bli Bli is experiencing unprecedented growth and we are seeing a lot more families moving to the area and demand for properties is continually increasing.”  “The Bli Bli Town Centre will provide residents with almost all their needs, and provide a strong economic boost to our area, and make it sustainable for Bli Bli locals to live, work and play in their own backyard.”

The groundwork for stage two is due to start in the coming month and will include Jett’s fitness, an x-ray practice, another charity shop, a fashion outlet and a Ray White Bli Bli real estate office. Completion of this stage is due Christmas.

To date Mr White said 70% of the lease agreements have been fulfilled, “I am very pleased with the leasing inquiry” he said.

A new Tavern and 13 residential units will round out the final stage of the project.  Any inquiries regarding the purchase of residential units or leasing can be directed to Ed Hackenberg, Ray White Bli Bli 0499 199 360.
