Construction has begun on the first homes at Aura as new land releases are made available to keen home buyers.

The homes are being built in Aura’s first suburb of Baringa and are steadily taking shape, with foundations being laid and frames going up. Over the next six months construction activity is expected to increase significantly as more homeowners start to see their dreams become a reality.

Work has also started on the Aura Display Village which will include a wide variety of state-of-the-art homes featuring a range of stunning designs from some of Queensland’s best builders.

Ben Simpson, Regional Manager for the Sunshine Coast at Stockland, said the first residents were expected to begin moving in around February next year.
“It’s extremely exciting for us to finally see the first homes being built at Aura after spending a decade planning this community,” Mr Simpson said.

“It’s the people who will live here that will turn our future city into a true community and we can’t wait to welcome our first residents at Aura early next year.

Aura home buyer Kale Piddington, 31, and his partner Cassandra Duncan will be one of the first residents to move into their brand new home early next year after starting work on their four-bedroom residence in November.

Mr Piddington, a Sunshine Coast carpenter who has been working on homes in the adjacent Bells Reach community, said he decided to build his very first home at Aura because he could see the potential of the future city.

“Our block is in a great spot right near the (future) shops and close to a park, in a secluded pocket,” Mr Piddington said.

“This community has a lot of potential and I’m looking forward to living here.

“It’s my first house and I’m building it myself and plan to do a lot of work over Christmas so we can move in as soon as possible."
