LOCATION BRIDGES THE GAP
Location, location, location and 360-degree views are coming to the CBD with new development Bridges on Eagle Terrace.
Morris Property Group (MPG) director Barry Morris said it was all about location.
“MPG places great importance on site selection, seeking sites with excellent proximity and unbeatable views,” Mr Morris said.
Bridges is MPG’s third Brisbane project following The Aurora and 179 Turbot Street.
The yet-to-be-released development is going to offer 132 large apartments over 16 levels with a podium-level recreation area.
Position Property director Richard Lawrence said he was excited to be marketing the project, which would appeal to downsizers and young professionals, with the owneroccupier in their sights.
Mr Lawrence said the development’s location was a key factor, with the ability for residents to be able to leave the car at home and walk to work, recreation facilities and highquality bars and restaurants.
“The walking aspect, the magical location, and it’s small for a CBD tower with a large amount of three-bedroom apartments,” he said. “And this is a very affordable buy for the first-home buyer, with a starting price of $395,500.”
Mr Lawrence said CBD units were a good investment, with the latest Urbis report showing good prices were being had in the city. “In the latest Urbis research, Brisbane CBD apartment prices attracted a premium over inner Brisbane of up to 22 per cent (Urbis Brisbane CBD Market Outlook),” he said.
Set between the William Jolly Bridge and the Go-Between Bridge, it’s not hard to see how the development got its name.
But Mr Lawrence said there was a deeper meaning, with the development also providing “bridges” that connect you everywhere, with the ability to walk to work in the CBD in the morning and go for a jog at South Bank in the afternoon, with a walk up to The Barracks Precinct for dinner at night.
Bridges offers sweeping views, from the Toowong reach, to the river, South Bank, the CBD, Roma Street Parklands and the hinterland, giving the CBD location a rare upper hand.
With the public launch set for the end of next month, Mr Lawrence said 85 per cent of the apartments would enjoy the sweeping views, making it a unique offering in what was usually a skyrise-packed CBD.
The double-storey entry lobby gives a sense of arrival to all residents on their way home, while apartment features include spacious living areas, floor-to-ceiling windows, large light-filled bedrooms and crisp white tiles and geometric lines in the bathroom. On the podium level, overlooking the river and South Bank, are a gym and pool in a landscaped oasis.
“This really is a property in the right location, with good finishes and the right price,” he said.
Bridges in the Brisbane CBD aims to create a sense of connection between work, rest and play.
