CRYSTALBROOK Collection unveiled their architectural concept design for the landmark marina re-development to Douglas Shire Council this week.
Douglas Shire Mayor Julia Leu said the new designs were exciting and complemented the Port Douglas feel.
“The reef and rainforest are the essence of Douglas Shire and these designs absolutely fit that narrative,” she said.
“I was impressed with the variety of plants, nautical themed design, extensive public space and boardwalks that could only add to the tropical character of Port Douglas.
“Councillors and I are so excited for the community to see the really clever work that the Crystalbrook Collection architects have put together.
“We will continue to work closely with Crystalbrook Collection and feel more confident than ever that this development is edging closer.”
EJE Architecture Director Barney Collins and Crystalbrook Collection Group Director of Hotels, Geoff York, presented the concept designs to Councillors and senior staff in Mossman on Tuesday afternoon.
Council now eagerly wait for a development application to be lodged.
Once lodged, Council officers will assess the application and put a recommendation forward for Councillors to vote on.
