Botanica Riverside is a boutique off-the-plan apartment development sitting on the absolute riverfront in Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast. There are 16 three-bedroom apartments available over the eight-storey building, with the minimum apartment size being 310m². Prices for these brand-new luxury apartments in Maroochydore start at $2,440,000. Botanica Riverside is a five-minute walk from the Maroochydore city-centre, which is ideal for residents. The new Sunshine Coast apartments also have some impressive finishes and inclusions, like the butler’s pantry in the kitchen, an integrated outdoor kitchen, an app activated technology system for security access and lighting (which is a must-have in 2019!), and a full suite of Miele appliances which includes the integrated fridge and freezer, steam and microwave oven, integrated coffee machine, washing machine, and dryer. It is safe to say there are not many apartments for sale on the Sunshine Coast that would come close to the design and finishes in the brand-new off-the-plan apartments at Botanica Riverside!
Located on a riverfront site over ¾ of an acre, the Botanica Riverside apartment building will only occupy 22% of the total site upon completion. The size of the site would have provided ample space for up to 90 apartments, however, developers have chosen instead to build a single boutique residence of eight levels. At Botanica, there are only two apartments per level. The apartments are north-east facing, with each apartment having expansive views out over the Maroochy River. Each apartment for sale at Botanica Riverside comes with two secure car parking spaces plus additional storage facilities.
OCTOBER 2020: Botanica Riverside is now over 60% sold, and construction is now well underway.
JANUARY 2020: Botanica Riverside is now 50% sold. The project is set to begin construction soon.
Construction on Botanica Riverside is due to start May 2020. Please check back with us regularly to see updates on the construction of this project.
Botanica Riverside sits fairly close to the mouth of the Maroochy River, with Goat Island directly across the river from the site. Duporth Avenue runs parallel to the river from Picnic Point down to Cotton Tree, and along it sits several luxury residences as well as a few holiday resorts. Botanica Riverside is a five-minute walk to Ocean Street, where you’ll find a vast array of dining and drinking options (making it our favourite happy hour spot on the Sunny Coast). Botanica Riverside is also only five minutes from Sunshine Plaza, the Sunshine Coast’s preeminent shopping destination which has recently undergone a $400 million redevelopment and now includes and David Jones Store among many other new specialty shops.

The remaining 2410m² of land on the site Botanica Riverside site will be dedicated to lush gardens designed by renowned landscape architect Jack Merlo. The site will also include a large recreation pavilion for use by residents. This features a gymnasium and a yoga room and is complemented by a 20-metre pool with indulgent day beds, cultivating a resort-style setting. Completing this pavilion is a fully-integrated outdoor kitchen with BBQ, under-bench fridges and a pizza oven. As well as this, owners will have access to an exclusive pontoon on the river, making it a dream for Sunday morning kayaks along the river. Water tanks capture rainwater for use in the common area, and the residents’ pavilion also has a significant solar power system which provides electricity for all of the communal facilities.
