After purchasing a 6,000 square-metre site on the Sunshine Coast in September 2021, Queensland residential aged care provider Rockpool has received the green light from council to proceed with its $44m Pelican Waters development.

“We can’t wait to move to Pelican Waters,” said Rockpool CEO Melissa Argent. “In the weeks and months ahead, we will be stepping up our community engagement … to ensure the development aligns with people’s needs.”

Pelican Waters will accommodate 150 residents split into 15 communities over six storeys. Plans for the ground floor include a café, a hair salon, a theatre, function and consulting rooms, a wellness area, and specialty health services. The building’s design will also allow residents to soak up the stunning views of the many waterways around the facility.

According to general manager for development Hamish Pressland, Rockpool will offer “a broad range of residential accommodation for all stages of people’s lives.” Mr Pressland added: “Pelican Waters can be their forever community, which is a wonderful thing to have.”

The build is expected to begin in April and will take 12 months to complete.
