BLUR­RING the lines be­tween apart­ments and tra­di­tional houses has added to the ap­peal of a new Bulimba de­vel­op­ment.

The Con­corde Apart­ments, on Stu­art St, has nine apart­ments that all in­clude three be­d­rooms and two bath­rooms, but each has a dif­fer­ent floor­plan rang­ing from 110sq m to 204sq m.

Paul Liddy of Ray White East Bris­bane, who is mar­ket­ing the de­vel­op­ment, said the park­side de­vel­op­ment ap­pealed to a wide range of buy­ers.

“There is an emerg­ing trend of smaller modern fam­i­lies want­ing to live in the in­ner city with all its amenity and ben­e­fits, rather than head­ing out to sub­ur­bia,” he said.

“They don’t nec­es­sar­ily want a house, but they want a true house al­ter­na­tive, and the apart­ments in Con­corde meet this re­quire­ment with their gen­er­ous siz­ing and big in­di­vid­ual foot­prints. There is very lim­ited stock in in­ner Bris­bane of a sim­i­lar na­ture.”

De­signer El­iz­a­beth Anderson, from Hayes Anderson Lynch Ar­chi­tects, said the apart­ments in Con­corde were also more like hous houses than tra­di­tion tra­di­tional apart­ment apart­ments in terms of de­sign and amenity. “h “What you’re’ get­ting with this de­vel­op­ment is a re­ally gen­er­ous high-end apart­ment de­signed as a house re­place­ment with am­ple stor­age ar­eas, large kitchens, big dra­matic en­tries and lots of cross-ven­ti­la­tion, with the apart­ments all open on two or three sides and the rooms be­ing free flow­ing from the in­ter­nal to ex­ter­nal ar­eas,” she said.

“The out­door court­yards in par­tic­u­lar are ex­tremely gen­er­ous, be­ing up to 89 per cent of the size of the in­te­rior.

“While the apart­ments of­fer al­most ev­ery­thing a house would of­fer, in­clud­ing pri­vacy from both the street and other apart­ments, they also have the ben­e­fits of all the fa­cil­i­ties found in apart­ment com­plexes, in­clud­ing se­cu­rity and con­ve­nient car park­ing with lift ac­cess.”

Con­corde apart­ments are priced from $799,000.

HOUSE AL­TER­NA­TIVE: Con­corde on Stu­art St, Bulimba, has nine apart­ments with gen­er­ous in­door and out­door siz­ing, and pri­vacy from other apart­ments.
