Keith Johnson’s vision for a luxury waterfront development, gracing the pristine shores of Lake Macquarie NSW, Australia’s largest salt-water lake, first emerged in 1999. Now, 16 years later Johnson Property Group has been given the approval it needs to turn that dream into a reality.
Last night the Hunter and Central Coast Joint Regional Planning Panel gave the green light to the $8 million first stage of the $388 million Trinity Point Marina after it was recommended for approval by Lake Macquarie City Council. The approval means that the marina’s first 94 berths, along with a building, carpark and landscaping can now be built at the site.
“The community has known for years that we were working hard to make this dream a reality. These plans were in place before we sold a single block of land, so the approval to build the first stage of the marina is very very exciting.” – Keith Johnson, Founder and Owner of Johnson Property Group.
The next exciting phase of Trinity Point will see 250 luxury tourist and residential apartments, a luxury hotel, restaurant, function centre, day spa and infinity pool built at the site.
Once complete, Trinity Point will boast a 188 berth marina and will be complimented by a foreshore boardwalk that has 280 degree views of the lake and will open up the lakefront for all residents, tourists, guests and the community to enjoy.
In conjunction with Johnson Property Group, renowned marina designer and operator Les Binkin has curated the project. The 188-berth marina will sit on the pristine shores of Lake Macquarie and promises to be the centrepiece of the luxury Trinity Point development offering the ultimate in exclusive waterfront living only 88 minutes from Sydney’s CBD.
“We have an amazing opportunity to deliver a world class marina within the Trinity Point
development. At just 88 minutes out of Sydney, it will offer a state of the art marina in
keeping with the luxurious waterfront lifestyle that encompasses the entire Trinity Point development” – Les Binkin, CMM.
The Trinity Point Marina will be one of the deepest marinas on Lake Macquarie with a minimum depth of 3 meters within the marina basin with berths predominately ranging from 10 – 18 meters with select berths to 30m.
Built to Australian standards, the Trinity Point Marina has plans in place to be one of the most environmentally friendly marinas in Australia. This, teamed with the technology driven design features of the marina, will undoubtedly see the Trinity Point development redefine Australian marina standards. Construction is anticipated to start later this year.
This state of the art marina will boast the following features:
· 188 floating berths – with select berths to 30m
· Publicly accessible landward floating boardwalk, with connecting gangway and jetty
· Separate fuel wharf with high and low flow diesel pumps, PULP pump and sewage pump out
