Our average tenant profiles are young professional couples and families, which is interesting given our immediate proximity to the Sunshine Coast University. “As such our next project release – One Tree – is being adapted to suit this audience even further with larger apartments and greater level of communal amenity.”Mr Schenk said strong sales in the area had prompted them to fast-track their projects, with Habitat expecting to finish the High Street Sippy Downs precinct 2.5 years earlier than anticipated. Other developments to be constructed within the High St precinct are the Forest Edge and Botanica apartments. A fourth apartment complex, yet to be named, is also to be built by Habitat.
