The $2.03 billion 750 bed hospital precinct, incorporating SC University Hospital, Ramsay Health Care private hospital and a $60.8 million medical training centre will become the largest medical training facility in Australia. 15,000 visitors per day will visit the hospital. Adjacent will be a new Town Centre, shops, restaurants, and a transport corridor with rail link to Brisbane.

Welcome Bob Vander-Wal of the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce puts it simply in this week’s cover story, when he states that the Sunshine Coast is “in transition to a very positive long-term economic future”. It’s a transition period that’s testing the patience of local businesses and industries, but with a healthy injection of growth predicted for the region, the outlook is positive. The 2011 Office of Economic and Statistical Research report estimates that more than 82,000 people will move here by 2021, which will bring the region’s total population to just over 420,000 – a 2.2 per cent average annual growth. There are a lot of major developments earmarked for the Coast in the short term, including the hospital precinct in Kawana, the revitalised CBD of Maroochydore, Caloundra South, Sippy Downs and Palmview. The amount of jobs created by these and the flow-on affects will be eagerly awaited. As Bob also says, “property prices will always follow jobs growth”. Bring it on.

Moving on WORDS JULIE GATEHOUSE
Quiet times in local industries from property to retail and tourism may be the calm before a storm of growth, according to industry leaders. MPP investigates, in the first of this two-part series.
as the Sunshine Coast been lulled into a false sense of insecurity about its potential prosperity? At the end of another challenging financial year, local industry and government experts say the region is preparing itself for a significant turn of the tide. When that economic tide turns, who gets on board, and what abundance it brings, will depend on many factors. They say the key is to act smart, whether people are buying a home, getting a job, building a business or investing in property. “The green shoots are there, we’ve just got to nurture them,” says Frazer Dean, Coast branch president of the Urban Development Institute of Australia
(UDIA), about the regeneration of the construction industry. Multiple large-scale projects will bring crane towers back to our skyline. Bob Vander-Wal of the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce says the Coast “is in transition to a very positive long-term economic future”. Clever businesses, he says, will perform better than ever before. According to Lloyd Edwards, Coast zone chair of the Real Estate Institute of Queensland, broader political and media negativity “has almost overeducated us that we’re in poor times when we’re not”. Lloyd, who’s been in retail, wholesale and the property business on the Coast for 30 years, recommends people interested in the market use “the very important bit of real estate between their ears” and do their local research. “Do you know the most common conversation among agents at the moment?” Lloyd says. “It’s how much they would love to have the money to buy here now, because this is the same set of circumstances we had in the late 1990s, before the big property kick in 2001-02.” When Reserve Bank Governor Glenn Stevens addressed the Economic Society of Australia in Brisbane last week, his message was positive as he praised Queenslanders for showing “resilience and adaptability this year in the face of extraordinary events”. He said those two qualities would help us cope with the increasingly complex global environment. The speech followed the bank’s decision on June 7 to leave the cash rate unchanged at 4.75 4. per cent for the seventh month, easing fears about rising interest ea rates (see box, right). With the slowing of interstate migration and a strong Australian dollar affecting tourism numbers, there has been concern the Coast is stagnating. It’s not, according to Queensland Treasury’s latest population projections to 2031. The 2011 Office of Economic and Statistical Research report shows this region will remain the fourth largest growing local government area in the state, based on expected population change over the next 10 years. The top three will be the Gold Coast, t Brisbane and Ipswich, while our southern neighbour Moreton Bay will w come a close fifth.

The construction industry will improve as a result of jobs growth in other industries. Whenever there are increases in jobs, the construction industry does well. Jobs are our priority. Tourism may need to focus on Australian tourists on short-term stays rather than foreign tourists on long-term stays and we need to look more at innovative, value-added industries Bob Vander-Wal, chair of the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce’s economic development subcommittee
The Coast ranking is based on the report’s estimate that more than 82,000 people will move here between now and 2021, an average annual population change of 2.2 per cent. That will bring this region’s total population to 420,400, well on track to meet the government’s additional prediction of more than half a million people (508,177 to be exact) living here by 2031. The figures correspond to drops in percentage growth rates in some larger areas such as the Sunshine Coast compared with the decade
The 2011 Office of Economic and Statistical Research report shows this region will remain the fourth largest growing local government area in the state, based on expected population change over the next 10 years
1996-2006 (2.2 per cent projected to 2021 compared with 3.4 per cent to 2006). But the report says, “Nevertheless the numbers of new residents in the decade to 2021 are expected to be similar to the numbers absorbed from 1996 to 2006.” The Coast had 84,600 people move here in the 10 years to 2006. While the stimulus of new residents will be welcomed by industries such as property, construction and retail, local leaders agree that growth must be sustainable to support a successful

community. Employment is vital to boost household incomes and protect lifestyles. “The construction industry will improve as a result of jobs growth in other industries,” says Bob Vander-Wal, who chairs the chamber’s economic development subcommittee and runs a business consultancy in Caloundra. “Whenever there are increases in jobs, the construction industry does well. Jobs are our number one priority.” He says forecasts that the Australian dollar may remain high (averaging 95 US cents) for the next decade will require a structural change to the Coast’s mix of industries. “Tourism may need to focus on Australian tourists on short-term stays rather than foreign tourists on long-term stays and we need to look more at innovative, value-added industries.” Lloyd Edwards says sensible growth is just as necessary for towns and cities as for businesses. “If we don’t grow, we will go backwards, get tired and rundown, lose infrastructure and money,” he says. “We don’t want over-regulated or rampant growth. We want growth that will mean jobs for our kids.” Strengthening the Coast’s economy won’t be easy, and will need extensive government support, but the spokesmen say their outlooks are based on a shift that’s already begun. Economic agendas are being set or bolstered across groups and sectors, starting with the Sunshine Coast Council, which has been criticised since amalgamation for not showing enough leadership on the issue. The council recently consolidated its economic development services and is implementing a 2010-2014 strategy that aims for the combination of a skilled and well-educated workforce, increasingly diverse economic base and coveted lifestyle to provide future wealth opportunities. A body called Regional Development Australia continued over >
What the Reserve Bank thinks of the current national economy (as of June 7): • The global economy is continuing its expansion, led by very strong growth in the Asian region. • Australia’s terms of trade are reaching very high levels and national income has been growing strongly. • Private investment is picking up, led by very large capital spending programs in the resources sector. • In the household sector there continues to be a degree of caution in spending and borrowing and a higher rate of saving out of current income. • The unemployment rate is little changed, near five per cent, and a slower pace of employment growth is likely to continue in the near term. • Business credit has expanded this year but growth in credit to households has softened, as have housing prices. • The exchange rate remains close to its highest level in several decades and this could exert continued restraint on the traded sector. • CPI inflation has risen over the past year, reflecting weather effects and rises in utilities prices, but is expected to be close to target over the next 12 months.

If we don’t grow, we will go backwards, get tired and rundown, lose infrastructure and money. We don’t want over-regulated or rampant growth. We want growth that will mean jobs for our kids Lloyd Edwards, Sunshine Coast zone chair of the Real Estate Institute of Queensland
(RDA) Sunshine Coast has been established by all three levels of government to facilitate a more innovative and sustainable region. Led by a voluntary committee of local government, business and community leaders, one of its main roles is to drive business plans and strategies that support a smart economy, attracting investment and creating jobs. “We’re looking for opportunities and opening dialogues to generate interest in the Coast,” says councillor Debbie Blumel, who chairs the group. The Coast branch of the UDIA formed an economic development subcommittee earlier this year and is now pursuing five key economic drivers for the Coast. “Peak industry bodies here are working feverishly to reverse the flatlining trend,” says Frazer Dean, who is also the managing director of InSite Constructions. As a surf lifesaver living on the Coast for 13 years and with 25 years’ experience in development, from retail and industrial to residential, Frazer recognises the Coast’s perfect mix of assets. The five priorities identified by the UDIA are: • the $2 billion Sunshine Coast University Hospital precinct and surrounds at Kawana, • the revitalised CBD at Maroochydore, to make it the region’s principal activity centre,
The Coast ranking is based on the report’s estimate that more than 82,000 people will move here between now and 2021, an average annual population change of 2.2 per cent
• the new Caloundra South development, to house 50,000 people and employ 15,000 within three decades, • the new Sippy Downs town centre and greenfield community of Palmview, and • the expansion of Sunshine Coast Airport, including a new runway and industrial precinct at Marcoola. The flow-on benefits of the public and private hospital development are eagerly awaited by everyone from builders and sparkies to new-home buyers, nearby home owners seeking capital growth and commercial property investors. The State Government estimates more than 11,000 construction jobs will be generated in the next 10 years, before the 738-bed public hospital is commissioned in 2021, and more than 4500
medical and allied health staff will be required. Construction of the smaller private hospital is expected to start this year. “This is our first cab off the rank because there’s going to be another billion dollars’ worth of ancillary works around the hospital precinct – all those staff will need accommodation,” says Frazer. “We’re holding a workshop in September to identify how local workers can leverage off these projects, such as consulting and contracting to any bigger, national firms that become involved. “There are myriad opportunities for everyone from engineers to pool cleaners and sandwich van operators. And even workers who are brought in will be buying their food and getting their hair cut locally, so more money will filter through our economy.” Part two of this story continues major projects, plus what this means for the property market and what the council is doing to foster new wealth.

What Queensland’s building boost means for the Sunshine Coast. ends. In the case of the Building Boost, we expect to see the opposite for the Sunshine Coast. Several significant infrastructure projects will commence on the Coast over the next two years. Turning soil in October, the university hospital project alone will expand our economy by an estimated 10 to 15 per cent. (The only non-mining community in Australia to experience such dramatic growth.) The reality, though, is the economic effect of that wouldn’t be felt until 2012, so without the boost it would be more of the same for the Coast property market for a little while yet. The Building Boost will stimulate the construction industry now but would likely fall back to normal levels (or below) late next year if there was

hey say those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones – well, the occupants of this home probably wouldn’t welcome a casual game of backyard cricket, just in case. This stunning house, known as the yellow brick house, is in Lithuania and hosts a family of four. The original yellow brick lodge (which forms the interior structure) was bought as a standard residential dwelling and when the owners began to strip it back, it was revealed that the lodge had been built with ancient bricks which were made in an old Vilinius brick factory – the site was originally a cannon foundry in the Middle Ages. Due to its historical importance and subsequent increased value, the house was preserved by wrapping it with glass. The house structure has been preserved and restored, and there is a collection

imaginethis… of ancient books in the library basement of the historical lodge. The basement also houses a Turkish bath, with bedrooms on the ground ﬂoor, a master suite in the attic and all living zones on the ground ﬂoor, which is reminiscent of a historical lodge. Obviously, the home boasts 360-degree views over the nearby park and is truly spectacular and inspirational to say the least. The surrounding glass structure has created an interesting aesthetic that uses contemporary concepts to highlight and preserve the historical features. It’s a stunning use of glass and this idea offers a unique and elaborate twist on a standard residential extension – so long as you don’t want to walk around nude, of course.
