Early construction has commenced on the first stage of a new community in Hope Island, which will boast high quality town homes alongside some of the final home sites in the suburb to offer bridge free, deep water access for boaties.

Gold Coast builder Coops Construction has commenced civil works on the new Lyra community, paving the way for the first stage of 21 luxury town homes and a resort-style recreation precinct, complete with a pool, clubhouse and barbecue terrace, to take shape from April next year. Lyra’s first 15 north-facing waterfront home sites will range up to 607 square metres and will be made available with private moorings.

The community will be officially launched to the market in January by experienced developer Changfa, which recently purchased the Lyra development sites from Villa World, with plans to deliver a total of 155 town homes and 25 home sites. Changfa is an international property developer and Lyra has been chosen as the group’s first community in Australia.

Changfa Property Chairman Guirong Huang says Lyra is an appealing debut project because it is unique to the Gold Coast market, which continues to be a strong performer. “Firstly, we chose the Gold Coast as our starting point because there is high demand for housing, and property values have continued to lift,” he said. “Lyra is unique in that it will offer some of the last remaining home sites in Hope Island with bridge free, deep water access meaning residents can be on the Broadwater within minutes. As a result, we are expecting strong take-up from purchasers who want to design their own home with their boat at their back doorstep. With the first home sites due to be registered early next year and the town homes scheduled for completion by early 2020, prospective buyers can start making plans for the whole family, including pets, to call Lyra home in the near future.”
