Urbex donates shade sail to Capestone residents

Earlier today, Urbex was joined by Councillor Julie Greer to officially open the newly refreshed park on the corner of Capestone Boulevard and Stodart Terrace in Capestone. The park has now become a shady haven, with the install of a shade sail donated by Urbex. Coming into the warmer summer months this will provide much needed sun protection to the already very popular playground.

The shade sail comes after residents requested for a shaded area to be built over the play equipment. Urbex’s project director, Todd Zuideveld and Councillor Julie Greer worked tirelessly to make the shade sail a reality for over a year.

Todd Zuideveld says the installation of the shade sail provides Capestone residents with a relaxed space where family and friends can connect.

“We wanted to create a space where family and friends could enjoy during the warmer months. The installation of this shade sail allows people to enjoy the outdoors and come together,” Mr Zuidveveld said.

“It is really important to us and our residents that we can offer them an active lifestyle, and we at Urbex work tirelessly to ensure our residents happy with every aspect of the development,” Mr Zuidveveld said.

Urbex and JMac Constructions worked collaboratively, with Wayne Thompson, JMac Construction Manager who played an integral part in facilitating the design and installation of the shade sail.

“It is great to see residents happy with the installation of the shade sail. It was a pleasure to work on something that really gives back the community,” Mr Thompson said.

Urbex is proud to collaborate with the Moreton Bay Regional Council, and continues to deliver outstanding amenities and facilities for the Capestone community.

With contemporary designer homes surrounded by wide streetscapes, spacious shaded landscapes, cooling bay breezes, a future central lake, new train station and a vibrant town and business centre, Capestone promises to offer residents and active and healthy lifestyle.

The first apartment block in the Capestone development at Mango Hill is weeks away from being finished with the first display apartment about to be opened.

The three-storey project is on the corner of Capestone Blvd and Napier Ave and will be called The Georgia.

Developed by the MT Property Group, the project consists of 17 two-and three-bedroom apartments and will be across the road from the future retail complex and childcare centre.

MT Property Group bought three sites at Capestone from developers Urbex and will build on them under guidance from Urbex.

Work on the second project will begin when The Georgia is completed next month. Its construction began in January.

MT Property Group ­director Michael Tsingolis said 11 apartments had ­already been sold.

“The people coming are those downsizing, travellers who can lock up and go away, some first-home buyers and, of course, savvy investors who see the continuing growth in the Capestone and North Lakes areas,” Mr Tsingolis said.

“With the shops and station being so close, people don’t need to have a car if they don’t want to.”

The Georgia is within walking distance to the Mango Hill East train ­station and some upper floors will have views over the proposed 13ha lake being built as a feature of the development. “It can’t be built out,” Mr Tsingolis added.

MT Property Group ­general manager Brad ­Fuller said the apartments had quality fit-outs with prices starting at $398,000.

Urbex and Plantation Homes show new terrace project to Moreton Bay Regional Council

Around 20 representatives from Moreton Bay Regional Council were treated to a special viewing of Plantation Home’s new terrace development at Urbex’s master planned community Capestone, Mango Hill.

John Atkinson, Development Manager of Capestone said the development was a first for the region and is a result of ongoing collaborations between Urbex, Plantation Homes and Council.

“Terraced housing of this kind is new to the Moreton Bay region and Plantation Home’s modern take on the terrace means each house has its own title without the cost and hassle of a body corporate.

“At the time we started work on the project, Council’s planning scheme did not contemplate terrace housing, so to a certain extent this was breaking new ground for all involved.

“These terraces really hit the mark and meet council’s planning goals whilst still being attractive and providing residents with everything they want and need with Council representatives agreeing.

Brad Collins, Sales and Marketing Manager for Plantation Homes, said that the terraces are extremely spacious inside boasting 4 bedrooms and up to 2.5 bathrooms with a high spec inclusion level that buyers have come to expect.

“We worked hard to make these terraces a full-size family home and have ensured that what you see is what you get.

“We have included buyers’ non-negotiables like stylish street appeal, lock-up garage, an outdoor area and spacious living areas with natural light.

“It’s been an exciting project to work on as Moreton Bay Regional Council haven’t done real terraces like this before and we all worked with council and planners to make this happen.

“Part of today is about showing the whole team what we’ve been able to achieve and to showcase the end results so everyone can see how all the work has come up.

John Atkinson, Development Manager of Capestone added that both economic and social factors were the major drivers of introducing terrace housing within Capestone.

“Economic factors included affordability and social factors included a strong desire to live in an environmentally sustainable lifestyle, or “a community”.

“Residents in the terraces will be able to enjoy the new railway station, a future picturesque lake, lots of shops and a new school,” he said.

“Urbex has been working on the Capestone community since 2004 and we have about 1,000 lots on ground now with around 1,000 to go.

“Uptake has been strong for land within this development so if people are interested in the Plantation Homes Terraces, or any part of the Capestone community, I suggest they get in quick.”

Homes and businesses in Mango Hill and North Lakes are a step closer to getting the National Broadband Network, with build to commence on the network by June 2016.Federal Member for Petrie Luke Howarth MP and Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull highlighted the news today, during a visit to Capestone, the master planned community development at Mango Hill.

“This is the certainty local households and businesses have been waiting for,” Mr Howarth said.

“I am pleased that after months of discussion and phone calls to Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull, I can say for sure that superfast broadband is a step closer for locals.”

NBN Co’s national rollout plan to June 2016 includes 1,530 households in Mango Hill and North Lakes.

Currently selling Stage 6, Capestone is a development with NBN-ready telecommunications infrastructure.

Luke Howarth MP said this means people moving into Capestone will be able to connect to the NBN straight away, and surrounding suburbs will be able to tap into this existing infrastructure.

“It’s great to see developers like Urbex working with the Australian Government to ensure that not only their community has super-fast broadband, but that residents in surrounding suburbs will benefit also.

“I have been knocking on Minister Turnbull’s door for months now, calling for NBN in North Lakes and Mango Hill, and I am thrilled that the ball is rolling. This is the certainty local households and businesses have been waiting for.”

BMD Group Board Chairman and Managing Director Mick Power said residents of the Capestone development “will certainly enjoy the benefits of the faster broadband speeds delivered by the NBN network”.

“It will connect our community like never before.”

Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the NBN is delivering in greenfields estates with more certainty and reliability.

“Since the election, we have increased the number of premises served by the NBN in greenfields from 54,000 to 160,000 and the NBN has reduced the waiting list for connections from more than 3,000 lots to less than 1,000.”

NBN Co provides monthly updates on its website showing areas that have reached build preparation, build commencement and that are ready for service.

Capestone Defies Turbulent Property Market with Strong Performance (April 2013)

Capestone, the master planned community at Mango Hill, continues to defy trends within the property market with 100% of the current release (Wyatt Crescent) selling out within nine weeks. This comes on top of the 91 lots in the first release being snapped up in just five months, a reflection of the scarcity of affordable land in the Moreton Shire region and the community’s convenient location.

A new release is planned for June and is expected to attract considerable interest from both existing locals and consumers planning to migrate to the area attracted by the affordable yet attractive lifestyle offering.

A 13-home display village is now open daily, with high quality builders such as Metricon Homes, Ausbuild, Clarendon Homes, McCarthy Homes and Ownit Homes providing a diverse range of housing solutions to suit a variety of lifestyles.

Marcel and Tina Bruns are a North Lakes couple who have been attracted to Capestone because of its greater affordability when they wanted to upgrade to a larger house on a larger block. “We have lived in North Lakes for four years and recently sold our house. When we heard about Capestone we inspected it and found it not only offered us what we were looking for, including heaps of open space and parkland but that it was also close to shops, schools, transport and other facilities,” the couple said.
Excited about moving into their new home which is nearing completion, Marcel and Tina are looking forward to the facilities planned for the estate, including the future centrepiece, a 13-hectare freshwater lake and town centre.
“We feel we’ve hit the jackpot. It’s such a great time to buy not just because interest rates are so low but because we believe Capestone is offering value for money in a good location.”
Capestone’s spokesman Phil Johnston said that the demand for lots is evidence that buyers see the estate as something special. “With the lake and its proximity to the bay, the future Moreton Bay rail link and the existing school combined with affordability, we expect the estate will continue to attract buyers, especially those who are already local residents and looking to upgrade,” Mr Johnston said.

The Capestone Sales Office is open Monday-Wednesday 12-5pm; Saturday and Sunday 10am-5pm.

New Display Unveiled at Capestone (February 2013)

A new display village featuring 13 outstanding homes is now open as part of the launch of the second stage of the Capestone master planned community at Mango Hill.
The first release at Capestone sold out three months ago, with 91 lots snapped up in just five months, as buyers responded to the scarcity of land in the Moreton Shire region, and the community’s convenient location.

The 34 level home sites that make up stage 2A range from 400m2 to 824 m2 and Capestone’s spokesman Phil Johnston said pent up demand over the past three months meant some were expected to sell quickly. “We have had a surprising amount of interest from existing North Lakes residents happy with the amenity of Capestone and the proximity of St Benedict’s school, but looking to upgrade,” he said. High quality builders have contributed to the display village, including Metricon Homes, Clarendon Homes, McCarthy Homes, Ausbuild Homes and Ownit Homes. Many are already complete and open for inspection and all will be open by the end of March. “There is quite a variety of one and two level homes emerging at a range of prices – something to suit most buyers,” Mr Johnston said. Construction of first stage homes and the civil works for stage 2A are well underway with a range of contemporary designer homes taking shape.

Capestone’s future centrepiece, its large salt water lake and town centre will provide a high degree of amenity and convenient local shopping. “I think buyers can see something special is under way here, with the lake and its proximity to the bay, the future Moreton Bay rail link, and the existing school,” Mr Johnston said. “The stage one sell-out shows there’s no need for incentives and gimmicks at Capestone because people can see its real land at a realistic price,” he said.

The Capestone sales office opening hours are Monday to Wednesday 12pm-5pm; Saturday and Sunday 10am-5pm.
