LOCAL and state members were present yesterday at the official opening for the $500 million The Pines residential community.
One of the most significant residential construction projects seen on the Capricorn Coast, The Pines promises to revolutionise the property market in the area.
It will also boast Australia's leading broadband and communication technology to residents. The Pines Yeppoon project sales manager Danny Carr said Homecorp saw huge potential for growth on the Capricorn Coast.
"We wanted to do something for the community," Mr Carr said. "Main Roads is making the intersection which will have four lanes and traffic lights, and construction on the land will start September 1."
Around 3000 people will call The Pines home.
Homecorp CEO Ron Bakir said the opening of The Pines sales centre in Anzac Parade, Yeppoon, introduced an exciting interactive showcase to the location which will serve as a gathering place.
