July August 2016 Marina World


WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENTS destination. It features a 188-berth concrete floating dock marina also built by Bellingham Marine Australia with slips from 10 to 20m (33 to 66ft) and some select slips to 30m (98ft). The marina offers one of the deepest marina basins on the lake with a minimum depth of 3m (10ft). Lake Macquarie’s Swansea Channel has recently undergone a .7 million dredging programme further enhancing the lake’s boating appeal. The marina, boardwalk and sea baths (refreshing oceanside saltwater pools) are open to the public, which encourages visitors to the lake shore. When completed, Trinity Point will be home to a five-star Pullman Hotel, a 200-seat restaurant, a café and a 300-seat function room for conferences and meetings. Facilities will include a luxurious day spa, pool and gymnasium, an infinity pool with waterfront cabanas, and retail outlets. The residential side includes 189 building lots for sale to the public and 250 apartments to include permanent residential and short-stay units. With 23ha of prime waterfront, the development will become one of the largest mixed use projects in New South Wales. Braden Johnson, deputy managing director, said: “The project is designed to cater to a wide audience. Our market includes Sydney buyers looking to the future who need a place to get away for the weekend with the family without being too far out of Sydney. We expect to attract people from far and wide looking to retire within the next 10 years who want to get in early and capitalise on the opportunity to own property in Trinity Point.” The group worked with leading architectural firm Squillace Architects to ensure each residential offering was designed to cater to buyer profiles at various stages of their life. “People are drawn to the site based on its gracious architecture, premium amenities and location,” said Johnson. “Our site offers strolls along the boardwalk surrounding Trinity Point’s shoreline. One can stroll past the old sea baths being restored to their former glory. We are close to some of Australia’s most renowned beaches, such as Sand Islands, Caves Beach and Redhead Beach. We have national parks nearby and a number of fine restaurants in the vicinity.” Similarities and differences Each of these developments is anchored by a state-of-the-art marina. Imagine, and it’s difficult to imagine, that they were built without a marina at the heart of the project. The integration of land and sea would be lost. The distinctive, landmark quality of the enterprise would be lost and the project would lose its lustre. While it’s true that marinas take time to plan, permit and build, they are indispensable. A developer cannot create a true waterfront community without one. Each project team benefited from patience and careful planning based on the realities of their markets. Both developers took the long view and sought to optimise Trinity Point sites out-of-the-city but with enormous potential. Wyndham Harbour and Trinity Point are marina-community projects of which the owners can be proud. It’s hard to say if these Australian developers are onto something new and that building from scratch in places out of the city (but not too far out of the city) will be a trend. But it’s clear that cities all over the world present similar business cases as Melbourne and Sydney. Perhaps these developers are blazing a trail for the next generation of marinas.
