Stockland Birtinya wins two major design accolades

Stockland's Birtinya's team celebrates

Stockland Birtinya has been awarded the Excellence in Design Award and Excellence in Presentation Award at the Property Council of Australia’s Queensland Retail Property of the Year Awards.  The $87 million development is one of the Sunshine Coast’s newest fresh food destinations with more than 10,000m2 of retail space delivered in an innovative open-air concept never-before-seen to the region.

The first stage of the shopping centre opened in December 2018 with a flagship Coles and ALDI, 35 specialty retailers and an open air dining precinct, as well as 522 car parking spaces.

Artie Manalac, Senior Architect at Stockland, said: “We are thrilled that Stockland Birtinya has been recognised by such a respected body as the Property Council of Australia.  Stockland Birtinya specialises in fresh and local produce, as well as unique and handmade products from artisans and local traders. We wanted customers to be able to enter the centre and have a genuine sense of connection with their local butcher, baker, grocer and more.”

Carla Montgomery, Interior Designer, Stockland, furthered that the centre was inspired by the tropical Queensland climate and is aptly infused with nature. “It boasts a unique open-air design that combines lush foliage with natural finishes that complement the coastal lifestyle of the community hub it sits within.” 

The town centre is part of Stockland’s $5 billion masterplanned Oceanside community – a vibrant new health, retail, commercial, education and residential hub that is set to become the Sunshine Coast’s thriving new world-class destination. Residents can enjoy a relaxed lifestyle close to nature with more than half of the community comprised of parks, conservation areas, wetlands and Lake Kawana itself. 

Sustainability has also been at the forefront of the development, with Stockland committing to a 5 Star Green Star As Built rating for the town centre as well as investing $832,000 in a 550 KW solar project. It is comprised of 1,896 panels and covers an area of approximately 3,700 m2. The system is expected to generate approximately 882,000 kWh of renewable energy per year, enough to power over 160 homes and has been operational since December 2018. 

Stockland Birtinya Shopping Centre forms part of the broader $830 million Birtinya Town Centre masterplan development.
