Whether in a Gold Coast development hub or a blue-chip Brisbane suburb, these projects offer homes for the downsizer to young professional, and everyone in between.
ONE Bulimba Riverfront
Homes in this luxury development in the blue-chip inner-city Brisbane suburb of Bulimba have been snapped up, with only one townhouse and some apartments left for sale.
The riverside project sits in a highly sought-after location, offering river and city views with a northerly aspect and plenty of surrounding amenities.
“We’ve got everything on our doorstep,” said managing director of Velocity Property Group Brendon Ansell.
“We’ve got the massive Barracks development, we’ve got Hamilton Northshore across the river, we’re a couple hundred metres from the CityCat, and it’s a lovely quiet suburban street, so it ticks all the boxes.”
The remaining townhome occupies three storeys, with four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, and an internal lift.
The 385-square-metre property also features large balconies overlooking leafy Bulimba, two secure parking spaces and a lap pool overlooking the river.
Mr Ansell said because the Velocity Property Group preferred not to mix products pitched at investors with those for owner-occupiers, space and luxury were integral to ONE Bulimba’s design.
“We’ve got most aspects of the project pretty right; the design, the size, the storage, the price point all hit that sweet spot,” he said.
“We’re probably the best value riverfront project in Brisbane at the moment.”
The development has so far attracted an exclusive downsizer market, content to move from houses to the spacious townhomes.
Mr Ansell said ONE Bulimba’s exclusivity was a major selling point.
“Our buyers are very much of a similar nature and we’ve created a community of like-minded people,” he said.
We won’t compromise on that. We are holding firm on our pricing and maintaining that luxury aspect, so that gives them the comfort moving forward that it will hold its value and grow well over time, as well as being a beautiful place to live.”
ONE Bulimba is located at 1/39 Byron Street, Bulimba, Queensland.
A display apartment is available on site.
In the established regional centre of Robina on Queensland’s Gold Coast, Vue Terraces offers sleek, modern terraced homes.
The staged development has already sold out of all its stock for stages one and two and is currently selling stage three, with stage four to be completed by July.
Each townhome features three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms across two storeys, with a double garage beneath.
The project also offers amenities exclusive to residents, including a central entertainment area with an in-ground pool, multiple barbecue spots, recreation and leisure spaces, and outdoor showers and change rooms.
Vue is within walking distance of a host of local amenities, including retail and leisure hub Robina Town Centre, Robina Hospital and medical precinct, Bond University Institute of Health and Sport, and Robina train station and bus exchange.
Nearby are a number of schools, including Somerset College and All Saints Anglican School, Bond University and, of course, the spectacular Burleigh Heads beach.
The site is also well connected to Brisbane and beyond via bus, rail and arterial roads and motorways.
Adjacent to the development is Robina City Parklands, a 22-hectare green space undergoing a substantial $15 million makeover by Gold Coast City Council into the Gold Coast’s “Central Park”.
Development manager at Robina Group Darrell Irwin said the homes appealed to a “cross-section” of demographics.
“We do have young couples, we do have retirees, and families, so there’s no specific sector of the market we’re targeting,” he said.
“We commenced the project in 2018 and commenced construction later that year, and to date we have sold and settled approximately 150 of the terraced homes, and we’ve got numerous more under contract settling at the moment.”
The development has attracted considerable interest, with many of the homes already sold.
“There’s no other terraced home projects within the CBD of Robina, so in terms of a brand new product in close proximity to all those services, it’s the only offering that the market has,” Mr Irwin said.
“In terms of townhouse product, larger 170 or 180-square-metre dwellings, there’s a limited supply in central Gold Coast.”
Townhomes at Vue Terrace start from $629,000.
The development is located at 1 East Lane, Robina, Queensland.
This $121-million master-planned community set in Brisbane’s east offers the rare opportunity to purchase freehold land, along with architecturally-designed terraced homes.
The project will offer 172 townhomes, ranging from two to four bedrooms, along with 20 freehold blocks, ranging from 360 to 602 square metres in size.
Located in Carina, eight kilometres from the CBD, the 5.2-hectare site is framed by greenery as it borders the 90-hectare Minnippi Parklands.
The development’s name is a nod to its emphasis on green space, with a quarter of the site, including a 6000-square-metre private park, dedicated to recreational natural environments.
Minnippi Quarter is also home to an array of residents’ amenities, including an on-site community hub with private dining and co-working spaces, a 25-metre infinity lap pool, a gym overlooking green space, an entertaining pavilion with barbecue and lounge space, and even an on-site dog and car wash facility.
Most of the freehold lots have been snapped up, and sales have now opened for the second of four townhouse releases.
General manager for Queensland at Frasers Property Australia Scott Ullman said the development’s commitment to green space set it apart.
“This is far from a normal in-fill townhouse development,” he said.
“It’s got some really unique features in and around the quarter of the site that’s maintained as green open space, and that’s really hard to come by.
“There’s a lot of green space, outdoor recreation opportunities but, in addition to that, it’s obviously well located to transport, local sporting clubs, Westfield Carindale just down the road, and only about eight kilometres to the city.”
He said an enthusiastic market response demonstrated buyers’ keenness for outdoor space in developments.
“[The green quarter] is unique and the market’s obviously recognising that,” he said.
“Obviously the sales success that we’ve been experiencing right through this period has reflected the market’s desire and acceptance of that.”
Prices for townhouses range from $485,000 for a two-bedroom home to $725,000 for a four-bedroom home, overlooking open space.
Minnippi Quarter is located at 193 Fursden Road, Carina, Queensland.
An on-site sales and display centre is open Mondays to Wednesday and weekends.
