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.
