Sharing the

feeling of home

Back in 2018, the site developers undertook extensive research into the wants and needs of the Maroochydore community.

From the findings, a clear message emerged.

Local residents wanted to stay in the area for the long-term. They wanted the welcoming, familiar faces of neighbours they knew. And they wanted contemporary apartment living made for the coastal lifestyle they loved so much.

These wants and needs weren’t exclusive to one demographical group.

Couples, downsizers, growing families – their visions of the ‘right home’ shared core similarities.

And this is where the Avalon by Mosaic story began.

Residential spaces made for
a diverse community

Rather than serving only one market segment, Avalon diverted from the traditional path to become a new kind of apartment complex – one that caters to varying budgets and household types, while providing its residents with the things that matter most.

Comprising two separate buildings connected by a central spine, Avalon’s 86 apartments are a mix of two, three, and four bedroom residences designed for owner-occupiers.

Awakening the avenue

The design embraces the privacy of home and creates opportunities for connection, with open communal spaces for families, neighbours, and visitors to enjoy. But Avalon exists to nurture the community within its walls and those surrounding them.

This is why on the ground floor, you’ll be met with the aroma of fresh coffee and the happy buzz of conversation – the melody of socialisation that had been missing from this stretch of Duporth Avenue before Avalon’s arrival.

Often, people passing by will pause at the complex’s doorstep to admire the public artwork installed as a part of the Avalon project. The work, created by local artist Shannon Garson, reimagines a traditional transformer box as a piece of art for the entire neighbourhood to enjoy.

Ventilated design:
Naturally ventilated corridors to reduce cooling and heating costs.

Irrigated watering:
Drip irrigation system with moisture sensor override to reduce water usage.

In-built bike racks:
To encourage active living and reduce the need for driving.

Public artwork:

Solar power:
Common areas are powered by a large system of rooftop solar panels.

Building their homes

with care for ours

Avalon’s lush greenery doesn’t just look good, it does good too. The building’s rich green spaces reduce the overall air temperature by 1 to 2 degrees through microclimatic cooling.

Combined with corridors and windows designed to promote through breeze, and landscaping elements that reduce the urban heat island effect, the building sets residents up for less energy consumption.

Awarded for its sustainability efforts, Avalon was constructed using a multitude of recycled and high-percentage recycled materials. In this way, Avalon uses elements of the past to shape the future – the future of apartment living and the future of the Sunshine Coast.

As one of the fastest growing cities in Australia, the region’s population is predicted to grow to 580,000 people by 2041. As more people call the South East home, residential developments suitable for diverse lifestyles, needs, and budgets, become all the more essential.
