Connection is key as Harmony celebrates 300th family
Andrew Walker and his partner Taize are the prized 300th residents to call Harmony home after they decided to move north from Caloundra and take advantage of the Harmony development in Palmview’s central location.
A new home sale consultant on the Coast himself, Mr Walker has been selling homes in the area and liked what Harmony had to offer.
“I chose Harmony because of the great sense of pride in the community,” Mr Walker says.
“All the clients that I met who were buying at Harmony were friendly and social and I knew that it was a community I wanted to be part of.”
AVID Property Group is bucking traditional property development stereotypes by placing an emphasis on community and connection at Harmony, a key benefit not lost on the more than 500 families who are expected to call Harmony home by mid-2019.
Harmony recently hosted its third Long Table Dinner, where they welcomed new residents into the community and provided a platform for residents to meet and connect with their new neighbours.
AVID Property Group Queensland general manager, Bruce Harper, says the community is truly coming to life as more residents move in.
“It’s crucial to a create a sense of place and community within a new development, which is why engagement is so important right from the early stages of the project,” Mr Harper says.
“We’ve worked hard to bring our budding community together with a number of fun events during the year.
“A development is more than just streets, houses and parks, it’s a community of people.”

Made by Mosaic
After a record-breaking sales run for their award-winning residential development Avalon in Maroochydore, Mosaic Property Group is preparing to commence construction mid this year, with site clearing works underway.
To mark the occasion, Mosaic partnered with Fraser Earthworks to give away recycled tree mulch on May 4 at Avalon’s waterfront site at 100 Duporth Avenue.
Managing director Brook Monahan says the day was not only a great opportunity for locals to take advantage of the free mulch, but to learn more about Avalon, which won the prestigious design award at UDIA QLD’s Awards for Excellence in late 2018.
Avalon is located on a site that has a long association with remarkable architecture, having previously been the home of formative architect and planner James Birrell, whose career spanned more than 50 years, contributing to Australia’s built landscape.
Mr Monahan says being such a significant site, it is important to Mosaic to help preserve some of the rich history as well as utilise sustainable practices and recycle where possible.
“The iconic, heritage-listed house that existed here for more than 100 years has been lovingly re-homed on a large two-acre block in Bli Bli and in addition to recycling the tree mulch, we will also be adding over 700m² of subtropical landscaping,” Mr Monahan says.
Residents were able to collect mulch in private vehicles, utes, trailers or in bags with Mosaic and Fraser Earthworks staff and equipment on hand to assist with loading.
