Nova in Cairns gets going

Work has started on the $400 million Nova 8 17-storey tower in Cairns being built by Singaporean company Aspial Corporation through its subsidiary World Class Land.

Aspial has appointed Hutchinson Builders as the main contractor and Cairns-based Kelly Development Services as project managers.

Kelly Wickham of Kelly Development Services said, “As a result all consultants WCL has appointed to work on the project currently are locally well-established businesses. Hutchinson Builders were chosen through the vigorous tender process due to their loyalty to the Cairns community, their longstanding business strength in the local industry and their demonstrated ability to achieve predetermined time frames and the desired built form result.”

The first tower will include 208 apartments, 12 townhouses on the first level and ground floor retail stores.

The Nova 8 project includes seven towers between 17 and 19 storeys each with 1188 apartments, 6000m²retail space and 11,000² office space.

Aspial chief executive Koh Wee Seng said that SilkAir flying direct to Cairns from Singapore later this year had been “an important factor”.
