Project overview

Aquiv townhouses are located at Brightwater, a new 1500 lot residential community on the Sunshine Coast. Launched in 2008, Brightwater was awarded Queensland’s best masterplanned development in the 2016 Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) awards for excellence. The UDIA noted the project’s strong environmental ethos, with 20% of the site area set aside for conservation. In addition, the development promotes healthy outdoor living by providing a variety of parks and over five kilometres of connected walking and cycle paths.

The development is set amongst 48 hectares of bushland and a 12-hectare constructed lake. Completed in 2019, the Aquiv townhouses include 33 two-storey houses arranged around a private, shared internal courtyard. All houses are designed to face onto a public street or lakeside pathway.
