Receivers Move into Outrigger Noosa apartment development

Another Noosa property development has collapsed. This time, it is the Viridian Noosa Resort & Spa. This is a resort, in the hills behind Noosa, that had 198 apartments. Less than 40 were sold in four years -- leaving a massive 160 unsold.

This is not a surprise. The development was not in a great location, a walk up the hill from Hastings Street. The pool area is unimpressive. Most of the rooms look at an internal driveway, or scrublands. No ocean views here. See this review. The price was about $550,000 to $700,000 for a one bedroom apartment with no view.

Viridian is managed by Outrigger, and was developed by Leighton and Macquarie.

Other recently failed Noosa projects include: Elysium Noosa, Noosa Sanctury, Noosa Northshore, Noosa Beach Road (selling well below list price) and Noosa Firstlight. See SmartCompany.
