Botanica Property Group
(Local Government: Cairns Regional Council)
Botanica Property Group Pty Ltd was seeking Preliminary Approval for a unique development in the suburb of Caravonica, approximately 10 kilometres from the Cairns CBD. To be known as Botanica, the project is a fully masterplanned, integrated residential development situated within the foothills of the McAlister Range.
The site covers an area of 32.97 hectares and extends for approximately one kilometre along the Cairns Western Arterial Road. It will ultimately include over 1,000 residential dwellings and ancillary commercial and community spaces.
The scale and range of the residential dwellings, deliberately varied in height, shape and colour, together with abundant landscaping and state of the art community facilities, provide a standard of excellence and architectural sophistication never before seen in Cairns.
“In essence, Botanica delivers a new era in modern tropical living.”
Urban Sync Pty Ltd was commissioned to prepare and lodge this application, along with supporting technical reports, for consideration and approval by Cairns Regional Council (CRC) and other relevant assessing authorities.
The Masterplan development incorporates:
- Various housing options capable of delivering between 1,225 to 1,325 dwelling units across a range of high quality townhouses, terraces and apartments. The project accommodates both public and private spaces within the site, while maintaining the privacy and security of residents. Botanica delivers a new standard of excellence in modern tropical design and a housing lifestyle that incorporates a central mixed-use, ‘village’ style precinct including restaurants, cafes and light commercial businesses.
- Significant areas for open space/recreation throughout the development, for the benefit of residents and the wider community. The project delivers significant and tangible community benefits including an internal car parking facility to be offered to the Caravonica State School, to improve safety in the locality.
Urban Sync was engaged to prepare and lodge Applications and supporting technical reports to the local government and relevant assessing authorities.
