BRISBANE OFF-THE-PLAN: Award winning Architects grand design

building-jpgAre you keen to live or invest in the vibrant capital of Queensland, then Bluebell Real Estate has some outstanding architecturally designed new off-the-plan apartments right in the heart of the Brisbane central business district.  Purchase an apartment in this 39 storey tower to enjoy breathtaking views and the highest quality amenities and finishes.

I’m really excited about this project because it’s been designed by the world-class Sydney firm John Wardle Architects.  JWA’s other current prestigious projects include Westfield Sydney City Commercial Tower, the Melbourne School of Design and the Queen’s College Graduate Residences.

building4building2Of their numerous design awards dating back to 1994, JWA has won the Harold Desbrowe-Annear Award for best residential project on three occasions plus recently won the Public Architecture: National Award from the Australian Institute of Architects 2014, the Colorbond Award for Steel Architecture 2014 and the Australian Institute of Architects Tasmanian Chapter 2014 Award for Urban Design.

So it goes without saying that these 1 and 2 bedroom apartments are beautifully designed to maximise both the space and the panoramic views.  Click on the larger photographs to see just how clever the design of the entire building is whereby all 10 different apartment shapes are replicated on all floors.

And aside from it’s location right in the heart of Brisbane, the rooftop leisure deck has breath-taking 360 degree views of Brisbane CBD and river, the Story Bridge, plus Mt Coot-tha which you can enjoy from the apartment’s infinity pool with mosaic tiles, plus sun lounges and an alfresco dining and BBQ area.

1514In an exciting idea for communal living, the architects also included a carpeted private resident dining room with full kitchen, so you can host your own private dinner party with better design and views than most restaurants.

The apartment also has a state of the art gym plus a vertical garden wall covering 4 levels of above ground secure parking attached to three super speed lifts.  For ease of access there are two luxury entrances and one with a sweeping marble staircase.  Again thinking of luxury living they have included a resident library, theatrette and meeting space.

NOW LET’S LOOK INSIDE YOUR APARTMENT:

  • Bedrooms behind veils – slightly tilted to provide privacy and protection from the sun.
  • Luxurious interior design.
  • 2 colour schemes to choose from.
  • Carpets in bed, living, dining plus tiles in kitchen and bath
  • European appliances in kitchen.
  • Ducted air conditioning throughout the apartment and again, cleverly designed so the air conditioner units are on the roof and not your balcony.
  • Bulk energy purchase through WINenergy – savings of 10% which is then passed on to residents

11The innovative design of this building is to capitalise on the gorgeous views from each and every apartment plus the mesh veil façade on the outside of the entire building is to allow the residents to capture the sensational wrap around city and river views but still be protected from the weather.

Therefore all apartments are designed to capture the view from north, south, east or west plus from most aspects of the interior apartment such as the living and kitchen area plus all bedrooms, which is an extraordinary architectural triumph.

Below are the list of apartments currently available on each of the levels with the same design layout on all levels, so the only thing that changes is your view 🙂  Prices and apartment availability are indications only and may change from date of publish.

***A GREAT INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY:
Brisbane has seen a large growth in new developments all over Brisbane.  This boom was caused primarily by lack of developments during the GFC in 2009 and floods in 2011 when developments were put on hold.  This severe undersupply has provided a spike in demand for Brisbane CBD apartments.

We are pleased to say that this tower is only one of 4 new developments in the CBD amongst some 111 new developments in Brisbane and will be some of the most sort after residences to live in when completed in April 2017.

Affordability:
With the city of Brisbane rapidly growing, this city represents a 36% more affordable market than Sydney CBD with a difference of $220,000.

Compared with broader inner city, Brisbane CBD is ranking as one of the market’s premium residential suburbs. Driven by students and young professionals, CBD apartments are rating 12-16% more than the Inner Brisbane network. CBD showing strong demand for rental properties, with limited availability. New and near-new apartments are recording premium rates, whilst rents have shown continued long-term growth.

Strong Rental Yield:

Gross Rental Yield in Brisbane is 5% which is well ahead of most capital cities in Australia (Sydney average 4.4%; Melbourne 4.2%). Brisbane CBD has generated strong rental growth of 4.6% – 4.9% p.a. over the past decade.

Independent rental estimates suggest a gross rental yield for this development is of up to 6%.  This market is driven by students and professionals wanting to move into this prime location, this high quality amenities including the apartment’s infinity pool and BBQ dining facilities on the rooftop.

And of course, one of the greatest draw-cards for living in Brisbane is the quality of life and the beautiful climate.  Brisbane city has significantly little pollution and enjoys approximately 261 days of sunshine a year.
