Two tow­ers a Hamil­ton haven

The Courier-Mail - Home - - Front Page -

FOL­LOW­ING a year of record sales, joint ven­ture de­vel­op­ers Devine Lim­ited and Leighton Prop­er­ties have bro­ken ground on their $500 mil­lion Hamil­ton Har­bour project on Bris­bane’s in­ner north.

Construction on the mixed-use, river precinct de­vel­op­ment kicked off last month, as buy­ers con­tin­ued to se­cure stock.

The de­vel­op­ment has been one of the stand­out per­form­ers of the past year in terms of new apart­ment sales.

Ac­cord­ing to the lat­est Mid­wood Re­port, Bris­bane, and in par­tic­u­lar Hamil­ton Har­bour, un­der­pinned the boost in high rise unit sales statewide.

In the three months end­ing Fe­bru­ary this year there were 239 high rise sales across Queens­land, com­pared with 74 dur­ing the same quar­ter last year.

Of the 174 sales in Bris­bane, 98 occurred at Hamil­ton Har­bour.

Devine Lim­ited sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager, unit divi­sion, John Egan said there was still a good range of apart­ments re­main­ing.

Among the stock se­lec­tion on of­fer are two and three-bed­room lux­ury apart­ments in Har­bour Two, the de­vel­op­ment’s sec­ond res­i­den­tial stage.

Priced from $705,000 to $1.825 mil­lion, each apart­ment fea­tures floor-to-ceil­ing glaz­ing to cap­ture panoramic river, CBD or sub­ur­ban Hamil­ton views.

“Even dur­ing our ini­tial plan­ning stages, it’s been our vi­sion to cre­ate Bris­bane’s most de­sir­able life­style ad­dress,” Mr Egan said.

“With the CBD only nine min­utes away, the river on your doorstep, the Bris­bane Ci­tyCat 500-me­tre walk away and an ar­ray of ameni­ties on site, apart­ments in Har­bour Two of­fer ex­cep­tional value.”

The three-bed­room pent­houses for sale at the de­vel­op­ment max­imise space, of­fer­ing buy­ers a ver­i­ta­ble “house in the sky”. Fea­tures in­clude a de­signer kitchen with stone bench­tops, mir­rored glass splash backs and Miele ap­pli­ances, me­dia room and open-plan liv­ing room that merges with view­filled bal­cony.

The pent­houses also have the ad­di­tion of a rooftop ter­race fea­tur­ing built-in bar­be­cue fa­cil­i­ties with stain­less steel sink and bench area, set against a panoramic of Bris­bane.

Hamil­ton Har­bour will com­prise a mix of res­i­den­tial, re­tail and com­mer­cial com­po­nents, in­clud­ing the 22-level Har­bour One and 18-level Har­bour Two, with 469 apart­ments across the two tow­ers.

Since its launch early last year, in ex­cess of 420 units have sold, to a mix­ture owner oc­cu­piers, in­vestors and first home­buy­ers.

Apart­ments have been crafted with green liv­ing in mind fea­tur­ing ceil­ing fans, en­ergy ef­fi­cient air­con­di­tion­ing, lighting and hot wa­ter sys­tems.

Ev­ery res­i­dence will con­tain a mas­ter switch that turns of all lighting and air­con­di­tion­ing as res­i­dents leave the apart­ment, re­duc­ing elec­tric­ity use and run­ning costs.

Res­i­dents will have ac­cess to re­sort-style fa­cil­i­ties such as a la­goon-style pool with lap zones and bar­be­cue and recre­ation ar­eas set amid sub­trop­i­cal sur­rounds.

As part of its mixed use for­mat, the ground level of the de­vel­op­ment will fea­ture an ur­ban vil­lage, with a jacaranda-lined pedes­trian boule­vard fea­tur­ing a mix of cafes, restau­rants, bars and bou­tiques.

Res­i­dents will also be within walk­ing dis­tance to the cafes and bars of the north side’s two ma­jor life­style precincts - Portside Wharf and Race­course Road, As­cot.

The res­i­den­tial tow­ers are ex­pected to be com­pleted by 2012, al­low­ing ex­tended set­tle­ment time.
