Puma helps drive development at Pelican Waters

PELICAN Waters residents on the Sunshine Coast can now fill up with fuel and coffee following the official opening of the estate's first petrol station.

Constructed by Lanskey Constructions, the new Puma station is the start of a wave of commercial development yet to come within the Pelican Waters town centre over the next few years.

Located next to the Pelican Waters Shopping Village on Pelican Waters Boulevard, the station complex is also the soon-to-be home to Bean There Done That Espresso Bar including a drive-through facility.

General manager of development for Pelican Waters, Hamish Pressland, said the station was being built in response to residents' needs.

"The residents of Pelican Waters and nearby Golden Beach have been crying out for their own service station for years, and we are very pleased to be able to now deliver this important service for the local community," Mr Pressland said.

Puma is one of Australia's fastest growing energy companies with more than 270 retail outlets around the country.

The station is positioned where construction is currently under way on the gateway entry road to Pelican Waters' new town centre and marina.

The new road will spearhead development of the final 105 hectares of the 810 hectare master-planned Pelican Waters community including the five hectare town centre and about 2250 new dwelling lots comprising a hub of medium-density units surrounded by larger lots including waterfront home sites.
