A new apartment development sitting in Baden Powell Street in Maroochydore, The Avenue is a retirement village for those who want to remain close to all of the action. Minutes away from a vast array of amenities on the Sunshine Coast (you probably won’t have to drive more than 20 minutes to get anywhere, including the airport), and with a number of facilities, The Avenue is currently selling, with Stage Two under construction.
The Avenue is a new retirement village located in the heart of Maroochydore. Designed so that residents can “age in place”, The Avenue includes a number of facilities (everything from a billiards room to consulting rooms for allied heath professionals is included) and design features (like wider hallways and easy-access cupboards) that make it suitable for older residents.
The 113 apartments making up The Avenue are split across two stages. Stage One consisted of 49 two and three-bedroom apartments in a number of configurations, whilst Stage Two consists of 64 two and three-bedroom apartments. All of the apartments come with either one or two car parks, which indicates that the developer clearly hopes to attract younger age downsizer’s and retirees who will still be very active.
The developer has clearly put a significant effort into forming a community at The Avenue, regularly hosting events for residents to attend. This includes everything from dinner and drinks to craft afternoons. This sense of community is particularly important for retirees, and shows how much thought goes into the continued management of the project.
With Stage One completed in July 2019, and Stage Two set to finish construction in late 2020, The Avenue is ideal for retirees who are planning on moving soon.
If you’re considering downsizing to a house instead of an apartment, then be sure to check out GemLife Pacific Paradise. GemLife Pacific Paradise is a new over 50’s estate located on the Sunshine Coast. As the moniker suggests, it is designed for over-50’s downsizers and retirees. Pacific Paradise is a house and land project which Gemlife call a resort as it includes a vast array of additional facilities for use by the owners/residents. The Resort offers a wide variety of home designs and floorplan layouts, all having three-bedroom houses, plus many with MPR (multipurpose room), an office, more storage — the options go on. Priced from $585,000, GemLife Pacific Paradise is for downsizers and retirees who want luxury close to the beach and the centre of all the action on the Sunshine Coast.
Given that Stage One of The Avenue is complete, interested buyers can make appointments to view the current apartments to get a feel of what Stage Two will be like. This display suite for The Avenue is available. Please call or email to make an appointment to visit it.

JANUARY 2020: You can see the completed Stage One below, along with Stage Two, which is currently progressing well and is on track for a late 2020 finish.
The location of The Avenue is one of it’s biggest draw factors. Located close to the heart of Maroochydore, residents can access to a number of amenities without having to travel far. This is despite the fact that the project actually sits on a rather quiet suburban street — residents get the best of both worlds, in this respect.
The Sunshine Coast Airport is less than 15 minutes drive away, which is great for residents who travel for work or leisure. Of course, if we’re talking about leisure then we’d be remiss to mention that the closest beaches are about six or seven minutes drive away. This includes Cotton Tree Beach, Maroochydore Beach (which is close to the Maroochy Surf Club, for those who feel like some food after a good swim) and Alexandra Headland Beach.
Sitting at 32 Baden Powell Street, Maroochydore, there are a number of well-known restaurants and cafes close to The Avenue. Orleans Restaurant and Bar are a two minute drive away, and this restaurant is a favourite for date nights and catch ups with family. Cafe’s include Aroma Bliss Cafe and The Milk Bar Coffee Co., which are some of the most highly-rated cafes on the Sunshine Coast. Both are less than eight minutes drive away.
There will be a number of communal facilities at The Avenue, many of which are focused on providing an easy-going lifestyle for residents. This includes health and wellbeing facilities like a heated pool, gym, and consulting rooms for allied health providers. Other communal facilities include a wine room (with extra storage), arts and craft room, cafe, billiards room and bar, library, and a functions room. If you’d prefer to be outdoors, there will be a BBQ area, resident garden, and courtyard.
