"113 Arlington Esplanade" represents one of the last substantial direct beachfront access sites in the Cairns northern beaches.

The subject property is a 20* minute drive north of the Cairns International Airport in Clifton Beach, one of the premier residential beach suburbs of Cairns, just five* minutes from the tourist-mecca of Palm Cove, and no more than 45* minutes to Port Douglas.

The subject land represents an optimal development site, one of the last substantial direct beachfront access sites in the immediate area. The site comprises two separate parcels totalling 2.188Ha* in area, positioned within a combined zone for "Tourist Accommodation" and "Medium Density Residential".

This substantial beachfront land holding allows for development densities of up to 400 persons per hectare; providing flexibility and options for a mix of future uses (subject to approval), including hotel/resort, holiday and residential apartments, as well as villas and residential homes, some benefiting from coastal and ocean aspects.

The site has frontage onto Arlington Esplanade foreshore and secondary street frontage onto Yule Avenue and Euston Close, just one street back. The property is vacant, relatively flat, is built up above street level and is free of vegetation in developable areas.

Physically the land retains a natural watercourse which winds through the property and is covered by an easement to protect the water course for drainage purposes. This easement area is substantially forested and provides a buffer to development as well as an ideal backdrop for outdoor usage areas within the development. A council approved private pedestrian bridge, which has also been constructed across the watercourse and provides for additional amenity to the site, also allows for direct access to the esplanade beachfront. The status of the watercourse easement also allows for it to be included in open space contribution calculations when determining and master-planning yield on the site.

Property Highlights:

-Total area of 2.188Ha*
-Fronting the beachfront esplanade
-3 street access points
-Maximum density (400ppl/ha) zoning
-Close to major conveniences

Clifton Beach is primarily a residential area with traditional housing subdivisions and established apartment complexes, a shopping centre and a number of restaurants.

The Clifton Village Shopping Centre's long list of tenants include major retailers Coles, Terry White Chemist, Australia Post, Brumby's Bakery and Liquorland, in addition to a local butcher, fruit & vegetables supplier, newsagency, hair & nail salon, and a littering of cafés and restaurants. A family medical centre, optometrist, physiotherapist and a pathology centre are also located within the complex.

Clifton Beach is predominantly developed and only limited development opportunities remain. The higher density designation of the site allows for 113 Arlington Esplanade to become a major destination mark in the Clifton Beach area and presents a rare landmark development opportunity in this emerging market.
