Brisbane-based developer SKF Development has officially initiated construction on the highly anticipated Sceniq Bilambil Heights residential subdivision. The $59 million project, situated on a 15.8ha site bordered by Walmsleys Road and Stott Street, marks a significant milestone for the Tweed Shire region.

Tweed Shire Council Deputy Mayor, Councillor Meredith Dennis, and Councillor James Owen, along with other local dignitaries, joined SKF Development Director Eric Zhao and representatives from CD Civil for a special sod-turning ceremony. The project has been hailed as a crucial contributor to housing supply for the fast-growing Tweed region.

“We are thrilled to welcome Sceniq to Bilambil Heights and delighted that construction of this new project is officially underway,” said Cr Dennis. “This new development is a welcome addition to The Tweed, delivering 100 residential homesites that bring much-needed supply, are affordable, and precisely meet our region’s needs.”

Sceniq Bilambil Heights has garnered strong demand, with the first stage, comprising 30 elevated homesites, already 80% sold within a few months of hitting the market. The development addresses severe land shortages and high demand for housing in Northern NSW.

Eric Zhao, SKF Development Director, expressed gratitude for the collaborative efforts with Tweed Shire Council, emphasizing the exceptional demand from predominantly local buyers.

“I am honoured to acknowledge the support of the Tweed Shire Council and the collaborative relationship we have enjoyed over many months to bring this project to reality,” said SKF Development Director Eric Zhao.

“The quality homesites we are delivering to this amenity-rich region are second to none and this is reflected in the exceptional demand our team has experienced from predominantly local buyers.

“We are now working with our project team to bring the second stage of homesites to the market as soon as possible to meet the undersupply of residential lots in the Tweed and southern Gold Coast that we identified prior to undertaking Sceniq Bilambil Heights.”

Tweed Shire Councillor James Owen highlighted the project’s role in increasing housing supply, stating,

“Sceniq is a key part of the future for the council’s housing strategy.

“This Bilambil Heights community is a positive step forward for the many people looking to build a new home in the Tweed Shire and I look forward to seeing this long-awaited project come to fruition in the coming months,” said Cr Owen.

“I’m. glad to see a ‘locals first’ approach as there will also be buyers flocking from the Gold Coast and further afield in Queensland and people from the southern markets in Sydney and Melbourne. 

“This focus on satisfying pent-up local demand in the first stage ensures Tweed Shire residents have the opportunity to secure much needed housing.”

With the new Tweed Valley Hospital set to open in May, the project aligns with the region’s anticipated growth, providing varied options for different family types and budgets, including first home buyers. Homesites in the first release ranged from $495,000 to $725,000, with a median price of $545,000. Prices for the second stage will be announced soon.

The release of residential homesites at Sceniq Bilambil Heights addresses the significant shortfall in new housing developments across the Tweed Shire and neighboring Gold Coast City. Council projections indicate a population growth of 13,000 to 30,000 people by 2041, necessitating planning for an additional 11,000 jobs in the Shire over that period.

SKF Development has appointed CD Civil, a local contractor with a strong track record, to undertake civil works at Sceniq Bilambil Heights. Stage 1 is expected to be completed by the end of this year, contributing to the region’s evolving landscape and addressing the growing demand for quality housing options.
