Parklands rebuild ramps up

Parklands RebuildDriving to work this morning (a mere 3km with no traffic – bliss apart from the pot holes), I counted five new rebuilds at a quick count. The extent of this rebuild locally is really beginning to gain momentum. The sense of community “in the fix” and being rejuvenated is both exciting and confidence-building. Three years on, the fact that there is life after such a massive event – and what’s more, a life after for Parklands – is such a positive message in itself. To actually witness the reality of it happening is a huge morale booster for us all.

After all, we live here because of the lifestyle it provides – there’s not too many places in town where you have the beach, a forest and multiple golf courses virtually on your back doorstep!

Witnessing the transition from the demolition and investigative phases into the repair/rebuilding phase is great in itself and personally I’d rather see concrete mixers and Place Makers trucks in the neighbourhood rather than excavators and geotechnical drilling rigs – new plus growth is good!

On a real estate note, the market has also moved to the next gear with the New Year market tracking positively, open homes well attended and local sale prices on the rise. With the city spring-boarding forward following a strong 2013 after the best part of 13 per cent capital growth. The list to sell period remains relatively short at 35 days.

Clearly life is going on in our buzzy community and I don’t know about you but I’m loving the can-do and “we can fix it” attitude that is reverberating throughout our streets and neighbourhoods. Bring it on!
