DEMOLISHED: Coast’s luxury homes knocked down

Reality doesn't appear to match the dreams of some Sunshine Coast luxury homeowners who end up swinging a wrecking ball through their multi-million dollar abodes.

Allcoast Group director Joe Macarlino said his demolition contracting business did one to two property demolitions every fortnight.

He questioned the logic behind destroying some of the properties to which he was called but said they were rebuilt with a focus on being "functional and flowing".

"You do ask the question, 'why do they do that'?" Mr Macarlino said.

"But I believe they are rebuilt more energy efficient."

He said up to 85 per cent of a house could be recycled.

"Roofing, timber, bricks - we try to recycle as much as we can," he said.

"We try to put as little into landfill as possible."

Luxury property specialist Tom Offermann labelled the multimillion-dollar demolitions a "replacement program" and it was becoming more common in the Noosa region.

"We sold two adjoining properties for $12.25 million and are going to be demolished and rebuilt into one property," he said.

He said a number of the properties in the area were built in the late 70s and early 80s and had been flagged for future development.

"They are beyond renovating," he said.

While some may deem the million dollar demolitions as unnecessary, some Coast landmarks were well overdue for a fresh start.

They include the derelict Noosa Bowls Club which Noosa police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Ben Carroll said had become "a hang out for an unruly element".

 

Below are just some of the Coast's multi-million properties that have been earmarked to be knocked down, or have already been demolished.
