The first res­i­dents of Wool­loongabba’s South City Square de­vel­op­ment have moved into their lux­ury apart­ments.

With stage one of the $600 mil­lion project now com­plete, it is the first of seven mixed-use and res­i­den­tial build­ings that will cre­ate a new des­ti­na­tion south of the river.

One South City at South City Square fea­tures 118 apart­ments over 14 lev­els, with ex­ten­sive com­mu­nity ameni­ties in­clud­ing a rooftop tep­pa­nyaki bar, pool, spa, res­i­dents’ lounge, moon­light-din­ing space and sun­deck.

Down­sizer cou­ple Joe and Sara Mar­chitto are part of One South City’s first group of res­i­dents, hav­ing moved into their cus­tomised three-bed­room, two-bath­room apart­ment in late July.

The Mar­chit­tos are ex­cited to start liv­ing their new life­style at One South City, in an area that en­com­passes all as­pects of mod­ern fam­ily liv­ing.

De­vel­op­ment op­er­a­tions man­ager at Pel­li­cano, Michael Kent, said the South City Square team was de­lighted with how well the project had been re­ceived by the mar­ket and wider com­mu­nity.

Mr Mar­chitto said they had their hearts set on find­ing an apart­ment that was low main­te­nance, but still spa­cious enough to feel like a home.

“We are so­cial peo­ple, we love to cook, so we wanted some­where that would give us am­ple space to en­ter­tain friends and fam­ily,” Mr Mar­chitto said.

“A bal­cony that wraps three quar­ters around the whole apart­ment means we can hold large din­ner par­ties while en­joy­ing the Bris­bane cli­mate.”

Pur­chas­ing a spa­cious, three-bed­room, two- bath­room apart­ment with two carparks and a wide-span­ning bal­cony per­fect for en­ter­tain­ing, the Mar­chit­tos knew that their apart­ment was al­most com­plete, but needed a few per­sonal touches.

The cou­ple worked closely with Pel­li­cano to cus­tomise their dream apart­ment, chang­ing the floor­ing, the bath­room tiles, kitchen fitout and, most im­por­tantly, in­stalling a bar­be­cue on their bal­cony.

With all avail­able apart­ments at One South City sold within months of launch in 2015, just six apart­ments have been held from the mar­ket un­til the project’s com­ple­tion and are now avail­able for pur­chase, cater­ing specif­i­cally to lo­cal owner-oc­cu­piers.

Down­sizer cou­ple Joe and Sara Mar­chitto (be­low) are among the first res­i­dents to move into South City Square lux­ury apart­ments in Wool­loongabba.
