With the passage of time post cyclone Debbie the after effects are becoming more apparent. On one hand, some businesses are struggling to keep up with demand. Some in the building industry, in particular, have indicated to me that they will have a significantly increased workload for one to two years. On the other hand, some establishments, particularly in the main streets of Proserpine and Airlie Beach, will not re-open for some time due to the bottleneck of inevitable delay with insurance assessors, building and engineering reports and the lack of trades people and building supplies.
So where does that leave real estate in Airlie Beach? Whilst I’m not qualified to comment too much about that it is pleasing to see two major land developments well underway. Both the One Airlie and Funnel Bay developments have continued with construction and development since cyclone Debbie. These are the major residential projects currently happening in the Whitsunday region.
