These days vacant blocks along The Esplanade here in Hervey Bay are quite rare and when you begin to see land clearing beginning to happen on the biggest empty block it’s almost certain that you’re going to see yet another high-rise development that we really don’t need.
If you’ve driven along the Esplanade in the last week or two that’s probably what you were expecting to see on that big vacant block across the road from Shelly Beach but we’re pleased to report that you’re not about to see another high-rise building.
What you are going to see is Seahaven … a development on land that was acquired by the developer back in 2003 … and when it’s finally completed it will fill that empty block with single-storey villas.
The Seahaven development in Hervey Bay is a $20 million beach villa project that will face The Esplanade but have access from Cyprus Street.
The first stage will offer affordable villas starting from $260,000
Let’s hope that this is just the start of some sensible development along The Esplanade here in Hervey Bay.
