Construction is complete on the first building of Brookfield Residential Properties’ luxury apartment project, Gallery House, on the Hamilton riverfront, with the second building on track for completion later this year (2019).
The $271 million dual-tower project comprises 315 premium apartments and penthouses and occupies an absolute waterfront position with uninterrupted views of the Brisbane River and city skyline.
Buyer Paul Makepeace, who purchased a two-bedroom apartment from the Gallery House River Collection, is preparing to move ‘home’ after a decade-long stint overseas.
His prerequisites were ‘somewhere close to my daughters and somewhere that felt like a community’.
“In Gallery House I found the perfect balance of location and connectedness,” he said.
“After 10 years abroad, I wanted to live somewhere that provided me with something I’ve been missing for a while now – a sense of community.
“The location of Gallery House next to Portside Wharf, and the building’s well-designed communal areas, makes it feel more like a neighbourhood than an apartment development.
“That sense of connectedness is something other projects I looked at just didn’t have.”
Mr Makepeace said that being part of Northshore Hamilton’s masterplan confirmed he was buying somewhere that had taken future growth into consideration.
“So much development is done on the fly, so knowing that there is a considered masterplan – not just for Brookfield’s parcel of land, but for the whole of Northshore Hamilton – was a real drawcard for me,” he said.
Gallery House forms part of the $5 billion Northshore Hamilton precinct – a 304 hectare development that is one of the largest urban renewal projects in Queensland.
Brookfield Residential Properties is the most active developer in Northshore Hamilton, having already delivered six apartment buildings as part of its Portside Wharf retail and residential precinct that neighbours Gallery House.
Gallery House is its latest and most luxurious project, with premium resident-only facilities including a rooftop sanctuary with infinity pool, lounge and barbeque areas, and a podium level garden.
Brookfield Residential Properties’ Managing Director Lee Butterworth said the masterplan had been meticulously designed to offer some of the best living opportunities in Queensland.
“We don’t just want to construct apartment buildings; we want to create communities,” he said.
“The design of our six-hectare parcel in Northshore Hamilton focuses on liveability, ensuring residents have easy access to infrastructure and amenity, now and into the future.
“A sense of connectedness has been achieved at Portside Wharf and we are now replicating it, on a more luxurious scale, at Gallery House.”
Mr Butterworth said Gallery House would become an address synonymous with style and luxury and its residents would enjoy an enviable riverfront lifestyle with everything at their fingertips.
He said buyers had been predominately locals looking for waterfront property without the maintenance, who knew the benefits of living in Northshore Hamilton with its direct access to retail, restaurants, recreation and green spaces.
“The three and four-bedroom apartments and penthouses in Gallery House are bigger than many homes, so buyers don’t feel like they are compromising on space,” he said.
“Instead, they are upgrading to a brand new apartment with all the modern luxuries and lifestyle amenities at their doorstep.”
Gallery House One is now over 90 per cent sold, while Gallery House Two has a mix of apartments, sky homes and penthouses available.
Two displays styled by Coco Republic are now open on level 11, showcasing the views and lifestyle on offer at Gallery House.
Located just six kilometres from the CBD, Gallery House has easy access to the CityCat, major arterial roads and motorways, key employment hubs and the Brisbane Airport; and direct access to the shops and restaurants of neighbouring Portside Wharf.
Gallery House has a mix of two and three bedroom apartments, ‘sky homes’ and penthouses for sale ranging from $575,000 to $2.795 million.
