The Melbourne-based developer, Goldfields, are expanding in to Brisbane.
Their first project, a joint venture with Icon Development Australia, will be in Milton, the riverside suburb in the inner western ring of the city. They’ve submitted plans for a 20-level tower designed by Rothelowman at 29-35 Manning Street, a combination of the two lots totalling 3,511 sqm.
Goldfields Chief Executive, Lachlan Thompson, told Urban that the time was right to go in to the Brisbane apartment market.
“As a national property developer, we are constantly looking for areas that offer strong development potential and we were impressed with Milton’s amenity and connectivity to all things lifestyle related,” Thompson said.
“We are of the strong opinion that Milton, as a suburb, is on the cusp of significant capital value growth due to limited supply and its proximity to the bustling Park Street retail strip.
Rothelowman say the proposed 131-apartment building is a homage to the vernacular intelligence of the traditional Queensland Home.
“The Queensland Home, with its wide verandahs and eaves, is a perfectly adapted architectural response to the local climate,” Rothelowman advised in their plans submitted to the Brisbane City Council.
“Our approach aims to capture the open friendliness of the traditional Queensland Home, a characteristic born of the warmer regions of Australia.
“It is aiming to reflect and acknowledge the semi-outdoor lifestyle, a unique expression of the way people have adapted to their environment.”
Oriented to maximise the eastern aspect and minimise north-west exposure, the building responds directly to its immediate urban context, while also celebrating the views of Brisbane CBD and the Brisbane River.
There will be 14 one-bedroom apartments, 91 two-beds, 16 with a multipurpose room, 18 three-bedroom apartments and eight four-bedders, located across the top two levels.
The tower’s floor plate maximises both the eastern and southern aspect, river and city views from the apartments.
The building will be crowned with Sky Terrace, a generous recreational space for residents featuring a swimming pool, outdoor kitchen and dining area.
Landscaping is a big feature, with FORME Landscape Architects installing vertical greenery on the podium and on the rooftop.
Thompson says the apartments will appeal to young professional in particular.
“This includes the “three day a week owner occupiers” that split their time between the Sunshine Coast and inner-city Brisbane, but don’t want to compromise on quality or safety, as well as strategic investors,” Thompson said.
Goldfields entered the Queensland market four years ago with a $350 million, 1,000 lot master-planned community in Ripley, in Ipswich.
Next the company will be announcing a mixed-use acquisition in East Elimbah that will, in time, deliver over a billion-dollar multi sector development.
“We have been hungry to grow and further diversify our presence here with built-form opportunities within the inner suburbs of Brisbane,” Thompson said.
As we continue to build our Queensland portfolio, we are considering a number of development opportunities from Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast and look forward to making further announcements in the near future.”
Goldfields also have a presence in Sydney, having recently launched The Livingstone, a collection of townhouses in Sydney’s affluent Pymble.

Inside the two-bedroom Silk Lane apartments in Woolloongabba, home of the 2032 Olympics
A relaxed sense of luxury fills every space, with tonal finishes and complimentary textures that create a luxurious hotel ambience
Accompanying the rush of global infrastructure investment set to transform Brisbane in the decade leading up to the Olympics, Silk Lane is among the new residential developments in Brisbane to secure a wave of renewed interest.
Comprising 306 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, Silk Lane delivers a luxury living experience that rises amongst Brisbane’s legendary cricket ground, ‘The Gabba’
Delivered by Sarazin, each residence is designed as an urban sanctuary, set high above the buzz of the surrounding precinct.
Silk One takes centre stage among the legendary Brisbane cricket ground, ‘The Gabba’, and boasts stunning views of the Brisbane River, CBD skyline and beyond.
Urban takes a look at two feature floorplans available to discerning buyers.
1. East No.12
The floorplan East No.12 has two bedrooms, one tucked away off the kitchen and dining area, with the master positioned at the front of the apartment off the living space.
That curved bedroom, with its own ensuite, will have full floor-to-ceiling glass windows with views across Brisbane.
The apartment, designed by Nettleton Tribe Architects, features generous living spaces, a balcony, built-in robes, laundry room and study space.
2. West No.8
The larger two-bedroom floorplan is West No.8, which comes with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a multi-purpose room.
West No.8 is a more rectangular apartment and features a unique cube style crown and a lighter colour scheme.
“Living here is living Brisbane,” developer Sarazin say. It’s a rare and inspirational blend of serenity and exhilaration.
City and Gabba views are on offer from the balcony or the communal rooftop areas.

Brisbane apartment insights: What happened to Brisbane apartment values in September?
Brisbane apartment values continued to grow over September, figures from the property data firm CoreLogic found.
In their monthly index, CoreLogic found that Brisbane values rose 0.6 per cent over September, taking their te
It was a return to a normal growth pattern for Brisbane, following a 1.4 per cent growth spike over August. Prior to the spike, there were 0.8 per cent gains in July and 0.7 per cent gains in June.
The 2.8 per cent rolling quarterly gains, more than double the gains seen in Melbourne, see values 8.3 per cent higher than at the start of 2021.
Back then the median value was $390,000. Now it’s $430,000.
The price gap between houses and units in Brisbane however has widened, with Brisbane’s median house price standing at $709,000, around $280,000 higher than the median apartment price.
New listings in Brisbane are slowly on the up ahead of the traditional listing increase in spring. The same can be said for Adelaide, Perth and Hobart, however the trend remains weak in the locked-down Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra.
Queensland has benefitted from record low vacancy rates, with southern state dwellers heading north during the pandemic over 12 months ago.
The June 2021 quarter data from the Real Estate Institute of Queensland showed that nearly two thirds of local government areas in Queensland recorded their lowest or equal lowest residential vacancy rates since 2010.
Of the 35 local government areas, 20 saw their vacancy rates tighten, 10 remained static and five saw them slightly rise in the June quarter.
Brisbane’s vacancy rate dropped from 2.1 per cent to 1.7 per cent from the previous quarter. The Gold Coast’s remained static at a tight 0.6 per cent and the Sunshine Coast’s was slightly higher, from 0.5 per cent to 0.6 per cent.

Reminiscent of an urban retreat, Trellis reflects a new style of resort living with 1,119 sqm of recreational amenity across the Temple of Wellness on the ground floor and the Residents’ Rooftop Club on level 13.

3. Silk Lane, Woolloongabba
Silk Lane will give residents the best seats in the house when the sporting arena is back in a post-lockdown world.
The building’s architectural façade, designed by Nettleton Tribe Architects, draws inspiration from the angular shapes of metal structure incorporated in the neighbouring Brisbane cricket ground, The Gabba. The appropriately named Skystand will look over the wicket for The Ashes, and the main hub of the 2032 Brisbane Olympic track and field events.
Developed by Sarazin, Silk Lane will home 306 one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
Prices start from $449,000.
4. Rivello, Hamilton
here’s only a handful of apartments left at Rivello, the luxury apartment development by Brookfield Properties in Hamilton.
The 21-level building designed by Cottee Parker Architects has netted over 80 per cent of sales of the block of 150 apartments.
Brookfield Residential Properties’ Managing Director, Lee Butterworth, said buyers had responded well to Rivello.
“There is certainly significant demand for Brisbane property in the current market and buyers recognise Rivello represents a rare opportunity to purchase a new apartment in a building on the Brisbane River,” he said.

Brisbane’s best property buys: Six must-see homes starting from $259,000
Despite the rising market, it is still possible to buy a property within a few kilometres of the CBD for less than $300,000.
14/75 Thorn Street, Kangaroo Point
Demand in Brisbane’s inner circle has been hot in 2021, so buyers with small budgets are working hard to find grubstakes. Here is one, a river turn from the city. Yes, it is a small grub – only 37 square metres of floor plan – but it comes with a big location. The designer studio apartment has an L-shaped, 16-square-metre balcony, a car space, lofty level-three balcony views and access to a shared pool.
Ray White, Benjamin Williams 0412 067 016
4/2 Prospect Terrace, Red Hill
Three kilometres northwest of the CBD, a one-bedroom pad has reached the market with a price tag under $300,000. One of eight in its brick block, it has an open-plan design with big windows to flood it with sunlight. It could be a base for a city professional, investor or student. It is about 500 metres from Kelvin Grove State College campus and was last sold in 2013.
Liliana Mauri Properties, Liliana Mauri 0404 644 006
6/104 Richmond Road, Morningside
Savvy buyers know townhouses often grant access to inner suburbs’ amenities at significantly lower buy-in prices than standalone houses. This three-bedroom, double-storey home is a fine example with its modern open plan linking dining, lounge and kitchen to a private rear courtyard. The median sale price for three-bedroom houses in Morningside this year has been $765,000 based on 100 sales. Cannon Hill State School is about 900 metres away.
REMAX Results, Kylee Harnisch 0438 763 975
4/15 Alice Street, Kedron
Real estate people often proclaim properties are “edgy”, but it is an apt word to describe the asymmetrical facade of this contemporary block. One of its two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments is for sale. It has an L-shaped floor plan and unorthodox 5.07-by-2.16-metre balcony, partially inset to its open living-dining and kitchen area. It has a single car park.
AUMR Property Group, Jay Wu 0402 686 929
11 College Way, Boondall
This suburban area formerly known as Cabbage Tree Creek has hit its stride this century. It’s home to just under 10,000 people, of which 48 per cent are long-termers – which speaks loudly to Boondall’s easygoing, well-connected lifestyle. This four-bedroom makes a strong case, with its two bathrooms and a double garage on a flat 516-square-metre block. The kitchen has stone benches and stainless steel appliances. College Way has 147 properties and 80 per cent are owner-occupied.
Ray White, Angela Duncan 0433 335 849
20 Saint Albans Street, Kenmore
Fans of 1960s residential housing design get an architectural showpiece at this understated three-bedroom brick house set on a manicured 549-square-metre block that was last sold in 1997. The interior is conservative and neat with the scope to swing into the 21st century with a cosmetic upgrade. All 13 properties in this settled establishment street are occupied by their owners. Kenmore South State School is about 400 metres from the driveway.
