DOWN BY THE RIVER

The Courier-Mail - Home - - LOGAN CORRIDOR - BELINDA CHILTON

Scenic river frontage has just been re­leased as part of a new $55 mil­lion river­side com­mu­nity at Lo­gan Re­serve. De­vel­oper Villa­wood Prop­er­ties has un­veiled Se­quana, mean­ing ‘river god­dess’ in Gallo-Ro­man. It will be home to about 950 res­i­dents, with 340m of Lo­gan River frontage.

Villa­wood Prop­er­ties ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Tony John­son said the new com­mu­nity was one of the only new de­vel­op­ments in the area that had been mas­ter­planned to take ad­van­tage of the Lo­gan River, and would be an easy choice for first-home buy­ers and owne­roc­cu­piers look­ing to build their fam­ily home.

“More than a third of the com­mu­nity will be ded­i­cated to green open space, na­ture re­serves for the Rain­bow Bee-eater, walk­ways, river ac­cess, two dog parks, a state of-the-art play­ground and kick­about ar­eas to cater to a di­verse range of fu­ture res­i­dents,” Mr John­son said. “We an­tic­i­pate that a high per­cent­age of buy­ers will be lo­cals want­ing to take ad­van­tage of Se­quana’s en­vi­able lo­ca­tion, ameni­ties and ac­cess to some of the best schools in the area.”

Mr John­son said the area was a good in­vest­ment, with high price growth for buy­ers.

“The value for money for owner-oc­cu­piers in the Lo­gan Re­serve area is ev­i­dent, with re­cent statis­tics show­ing the Lo­gan Re­serve pri­mary school catch­ment zone has ex­pe­ri­enced up to 40 per cent prop­erty value growth in the past 12 months, mak­ing it the sec­ond high­est grow­ing area for prop­erty val­ues in Aus­tralia,” he said.

Lo­gan Re­serve is a 30-minute drive from Bris­bane and 45 min­utes from the Gold Coast, close to pub­lic trans­port, lo­cal hos­pi­tals and Lo­gan Cen­tral shop­ping precincts.

Se­quana will be Villa­wood’s fifth project for the Queens­land arm, hav­ing com­pleted Mi­ra­mar at Ca­sua­r­ina and Essen­cia at Dak­abin.

The de­vel­oper is cur­rently de­vel­op­ing the King­sholme acreage com­mu­nity – Mon­tego Hills and The Sur­rounds at He­lensvale.
