The onset of warm weather has buyers flocking to the waters’ edge, with sales at Portside Wharf’s absolute riverfront building, Pinnacle, reaching $5 million since the start of spring.
A surge in enquiry from owner occupiers looking for a riverside address has lead to the recent sale of four apartments and a penthouse at Brookfield Residential Properties’ boutique retail and residential precinct along the Brisbane River in Hamilton.
Sales in Pinnacle have now reached $110 as the building edges closer to a sell-out, with just one penthouse, one three bedroom apartment, six River Terraces and a good mix of two bedroom apartments remaining in the 15-level luxury waterfront apartment building.
Brookfield Residential Properties General Manger Lee Butterworth said with the weather heating up, it was no surprise buyers were attracted to Portside Wharf’s waterfront lifestyle.
“Waterfront living isn’t just about having the water at your doorstep, there’s an enviable lifestyle that comes with it,” he said.
“Living by the water gives a sense of spaciousness and openness and allows breezes and natural light to flow through your home.
“Pinnacle, our absolute luxury riverfront apartment building, has been designed to capture these elements, with high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows to make the most of the cool breezes in summer, while catching the warm sunlight in winter.
“Large balconies give residents a workable outdoor space while our River Terraces offer the ultimate in al-fresco living and entertaining, with balconies up to 54sqm, many with private access to the wharf.”
Mr Butterworth said location had been the biggest drawcard for buyers.
“The owner occupier market has really taken off and sales have ramped up as buyers look for a riverfront location with access to everything,” he said.
“In terms of position, Portside Wharf is unmatched in its combination of direct access to a buzzing retail plaza alongside its proximity to the CBD, airports, CityCat and motorways including Kingsford Smith Drive, which is set to become a six lane boulevard under new State Government plans.
“With the ongoing expansion of Northshore Hamilton, which is set to become home to more than 10,000 residents over the next 20 years, Portside Wharf will continue to be the pivotal development in Brisbane’s largest, master planned residential community and urban renewal project.”
Mr Butterworth said Portside Wharf was now home to 45 retailers including waterfront fine dining and casual restaurants, boutique fashion, health and fitness, hair and beauty, conveniences and entertainment.
