Multi-million dollar apartment development gets green light
A MULTI-million dollar development has been given the go-ahead by Ballina Shire Council after the application was approved unanimously at yesterday's Ordinary Meeting.
The $31 million project includes 34 apartments, six levels and a ground-level retail and dining precinct.
Ballina Chamber of Commerce chairman Peter Carmont said the approval was a significant step towards the rejuvenation of the CBD's main street.
"It will be a major step in completing the revitalisation of the CBD while further opening up public access to the river," he said.
The developer, Reside Living Pty Ltd, plans to start construction within months and expects it will create more than 150 jobs during the estimated 14-month building phase.
The development will feature 17 three-bedroom apartments, 12 two-bedroom dwellings and five one-bedroom units.
