AS LENNIUM GROUP com­pletes one north­side pro­ject and launches an­other nearby, the sup­port of the owner oc­cu­pier mar­ket has pushed sales.

At Ashby Mead­ows in Albany Creek, due for com­ple­tion and set­tle­ment in April, de­vel­op­ment man­ager Noel Shipp said an even mix of owner oc­cu­piers and in­vestors had bought into the pro­ject.

“We have ex­pe­ri­enced un­prece­dented sup­port from lo­cals want­ing to pur­chase in the area who are drawn to the mod­ern fin­ishes of the town­houses, with al­most half of them hav­ing di­rect park frontage and ac­cess,” Mr Shipp said.

Bridge­man Downs res­i­dent Mary Mo­ran is one of those lo­cal buy­ers, who down­sized into Ashby Mead­ows, at­tracted by the park­land view from her three-bed­room town­house.

“I’d been look­ing for a place for a few months and I liked that it had only 38 houses – other places just looked like con­crete jun­gles,” she said.

“I could re­ally see my­self liv­ing there and it re­ally ap­pealed.

“The smaller home was also eas­ier to man­age and ev­ery­thing was brand new.”

Whereas at Lennium Group’s newly launched Grov­ely Ter­races, Keperra, Mr Shipp said strong de­mand has come through the pro­ject’s prox­im­ity to the re­cently ex­panded Enog­gera army bar­racks.

“Most of Enog­gera is full of army per­son­nel and Mitchel­ton is get­ting very dense now.

“The raft of shops in the lo­cal­ity is also why Grov­ely Ter­races is ap­peal­ing to a broad de­mo­graphic,” he said.

“We’re an in­fill site so peo­ple won’t have this op­por­tu­nity again.”

The $27 mil­lion Grov­ely Ter­races will have 14 three­bed­room town­houses and 47 two-bed­room and twobed­room plus study apart­ments, priced from $399,500. Twelve res­i­dences sold one week af­ter the launch in late Fe­bru­ary.

The first stage is ex­pected to be com­pleted by De­cem­ber with a se­cond stage due for com­ple­tion by Fe­bru­ary 2017.

Only three town­houses re­main of the 38 three­bed­room town­houses at Ashby Mead­ows, priced from $450,000.

LOW MAIN­TE­NANCE: Mary Mo­ran moved from Bridge­man Downs to down­size into a three-bed­room town­house at Ashby Mead­ows, Albany Creek, at­tracted by the park­land views.
