PLANNING & DESIGN

PLANNING & DESIGN Marina contract awarded for Shell Cove development Shell Cove is buzzing with activity as work advances on its long awaited Waterfront precinct. An AU.7 million marina contract has been awarded to Walcon Marine, the town centre will soon open, and a new land release has been unveiled that will position residents in the heart of the action. A joint venture between Frasers Property Australia (formerly Australand) and Shellharbour City Council, Shell Cove – located 20km (12.4mi) south of Wollongong and a two-hour drive from central Sydney – is the largest coastal tourism/residential development ever initiated by a local government authority in Australia. And when the 270-berth Shellharbour Marina is completed as part of an AU.5 billion investment in The Waterfront precinct, it will be one of the biggest marinas in New South Wales (NSW); positioned within a manmade inner basin about 30% larger than Sydney’s Darling Harbour. Work started on Shell Cove around 20 years ago and, over time, it has become home to a substantial residential community who have easy access to schools and transport networks while being surrounded by beaches, parks and wetlands. The additional facilities offered by its own town centre will further reinforce its reputation as a waterfront lifestyle and social hub. “The Waterfront, Shell Cove will provide marina and boating services, shops, accommodation, cafés, restaurants and entertainment options for locals and the broader community,” explains Glenn Colquhoun, development director Shell Cove for Frasers Property Australia. “The tourism and lifestyle destination we’re creating will be truly unique to celebrate the character of the natural surroundings.” L to r: Shellharbour Mayor, Marianne Saliba; Glenn Colquhoun, development director Shell Cove – Frasers Property Australia; and Ian McAndrew, Walcon Marine senior group consultant. Shellharbour City Council mayor, Marianne Saliba, said the boat harbour was the most significant piece of marine infrastructure under way in NSW. “The Shell Cove development has been a 30 year journey to create an activated and vibrant regional hub that will stimulate tourism and boost the local economy, currently worth AU5.8 million,” she said. “The marina will provide for regional recreational boating facilities and be a catalyst for coastal tourism south of Sydney. It will assist in the creation of jobs and will firmly put Shellharbour and the South Coast on the map.” The marina, with its two excavated harbour basins, ocean breakwaters, harbour revetments and boardwalks, boat ramp, hard stand and piled floating pontoons offering around 270 berths for boats up to 30m (98ft) in length, totals a considerable AU0 million investment. The new 460m (1,509ft) long breakwater and 280m (919ft) groyne being built into the Pacific Ocean are Artist’s impression of The Waterfront. www.marinaworld.com - September/October 2018 17
