Curve Birtinya is an off-the-plan apartment development in Birtinya on the Sunshine Coast that’s perfect for downsizers, first-home buyers or professionals with prices starting at $399,000. With a waterfront location on Lake Kawana, Curve Birtinya offers excellent local views in a great location that’s just minutes walk to the new Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Hub as well as numerous local cafes, shops and parks.
All of the apartments at Curve Birtinya are said to have been designed to create a peaceful, calming atmosphere, with the design of the whole development geared toward increasing the health and wellness of residents. This is a consistent theme of the Lake Kawana precinct in general with its close proximity to Queensland’s newest and most advanced hospital nearby. The effort that has gone into the design of the apartments is clear, with the inclusion of high-quality communal facilities (such as the gym and yoga/pilates ‘break out’ space, which has a view over the nearby lake, so you can work out in style). A feature we love is how the apartments are designed to encourage cross-flow breezes throughout the space, a big plus in the sub-tropical climate of the Sunshine Coast.
Curve Birtinya is a new apartment project located on Prosperity Drive, Birtinya. The apartments are adjacent to the new Sunshine Coast Health Hub, and have waterfront views due to their location near Lake Kawana. A large focus in the design of the project was increasing health and wellness of residents, which is apparent in the apartment designs.
The apartments come in two, three and four-bedroom configurations. With a north-facing building and elongated apartments that run length-wise through the floors, all of the apartment configurations have a number of features we really like: cross-flow breezes from the nearby lake will be caught more easily, and almost all of the apartments have extensive waterfront views. Inclusions of features such as extra-wide showers with waterfall showerheads and high-quality appliances highlight how the apartments were designed to evoke the luxury of hotels while still remaining functional for everyday use. All apartments are quite airy and spacious, with high ceilings throughout.
Another way of improving resident’s well-being in the inclusion of a number of communal facilities. With a full-equipped gym and a ‘breakout’ area for yoga and pilates, residents can keep fit easily. They can also relax in the pool or with friends and family at the BBQ’s on the terrace if they would like to. For extra health benefits and relaxation, there’s also a spa and sauna for resident’s use.
Two-bedroom apartments are priced from $399,000, three-bedrooms from $520,000, and four-bedroom apartments from $715,000.
The body corporate fees for Curve are quite reasonable for the area. The fees can range between $68.67 — $90.10 per week. This amounts to roughly $3,570.86 — $4,684.98 in total every year.
APRIL 2020: Construction at Curve Birtinya is underway and progressing quickly. The project is expected to be complete in early 2021.
Located in the heart of the Birtinya Oceanside precinct at 1 Prosperity Drive, Curve is close to a range of local amenities, as well as being just meters from the waterfront at Lake Kawana. A number of other amenities are found along Kawana Way, including a Coles, Anaconda, and jewellers, among others. For those more interested in eating out, they will also find sushi stores, a Hawaiian restaurant, and more casual options such as take-away Mexican and cafes. There are a number of parks in the area that area great for picnics, and the beach at Bokarina is also only 2km away. If you want to travel a little further afield, residents will find the large Kawana Shoppingworld 15 minutes drive away. It is home to over 160 specialty stores.

For those with children, there are a few options in the surrounding area. Five minutes drive will put residents close to C&K Kawana Community Kindergarten and Preschool. If your children are slightly older, you might decide to send them to the Kawana Waters State College Primary Campus, or the senior campus of the school, known as the Kawana Waters State College. Another nearby option is Pacific Lutheran College, another Prep to Year 12 co-educational school in the area.
