Devine Brings Forward River Parks Development On Strong Demand

Leading Queensland developer Devine has today announced an accelerated development program for its River parks community at Kelso following strong demand for homes in the popular Townsville estate.

As part of the accelerated development schedule, Devine will start construction on stages 7c, 8a and 8b sooner than initially planned.

Devine Queensland General Manager Andrew Brimblecombe said the rush for homes reflected the underlying improvement in the Townsville housing market and the excellent value for money on offer.

“We believe our strong sales are due to River Parks’ excellent value for money in a very competitive market,” Mr Brimblecombe said.

“With demand and enquiry, we urge all potential buyers to arrange appointments with one of our consultants as soon as possible to ensure they can secure a homesite.”

Home sites at River Parks are currently available for $138,900, with blocks ranging from 450sqm to 615sqm in size.

River Parks delivers a convenient location close to all amenities, quality home and land packages and attractive surroundings with plenty of open space to kick a ball.

Set on 72 hectares, River Parks will be home to approximately 1000 families surrounded by landscaping, promenades of trees, parklands, open spaces, walking and cycling tracks, and a proposed village including shopping, cafe and childcare centre.

River Parks is only 300m from the Riverway precinct, spanning 11km of the Ross River riverfront and incorporating residential, commercial, cultural, sport, and leisure amenities.

The community reflects Townsville’s growing population base with a range of lot sizes and home designs suitable for a range of budgets, lifestyles and tastes.

As well as the Riverway precinct, nearby amenities include private and state primary and secondary schools, the Townsville General Hospital, James Cook University, The Barrier Reef Institute of TAFE, and the Willows Shopping Centre making River Parks an ideal location for a diverse range of homeowners including young couples, growing families, and retirees.
