HAVEN CLOSE TO CITY

The Courier-Mail - Home - - NEWMARKET HOT SPOT - BELINDA CHILTON

The second de­vel­op­ment in New­mar­ket in four years has been launched to mar­ket on the back of the suc­cess of Eve on Er­ne­ton.

Your Style Group man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Dean Parker said Eve on Er­ne­ton had shown that New­mar­ket rep­re­sented bet­ter value at al­most the same dis­tance from the CBD as nearby pop­u­lar sub­urbs Wind­sor and Wil­ston.

Gar­den Ter­races has just launched 500m down the road from Eve on Er­ne­ton, with 26 one, two and three-bed­room res­i­dences de­signed to mimic a typ­i­cal Queens­lan­der in the fil­ter­ing of light, breeze and pri­vacy through mul­ti­ple lay­ered skins.

Mr Parker said New­mar­ket had al­ways been a de­sir­able sub­urb for buy­ers be­cause of its prox­im­ity to the city and rel­a­tive af­ford­abil­ity, com­pared to sub­urbs like Wil­ston and Wind­sor.

“De­vel­op­ment sites in the area have al­ways been scarce and ap­provals dif­fi­cult to achieve,” he said. En­sur­ing the de­vel­op­ments were sym­pa­thetic to the sur­round­ing en­vi­ron­ment was im­por­tant to achiev­ing ap­proval, and ul­ti­mately in driv­ing de­mand.

“The New­mar­ket mar­ket is a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent to the in­ner city mar­ket,” Mr Parker said. “Buy­ers aren’t in­ter­ested in liv­ing in a high­rise and pre­fer lower den­sity prod­uct than the in­ner city and city projects cur­rently on of­fer.

“We de­lib­er­ately went with a range of larger two and three bed­room apart­ments to cater for this mar­ket.” Mr Parker said buy­ers wanted space and lux­ury, and get­ting the bal­ance right through ar­chi­tec­ture and de­sign was the key to the suc­cess of the project at Eve on Er­ne­ton.

“New­mar­ket as a sub­urb has evolved rapidly over the past 10 years and de­vel­oped its own unique feel and style,” he said. “Res­i­dents love the idea of be­ing only a few kilo­me­tres from the city but also hav­ing their lo­cal gath­er­ing places like New­mar­ket Vil­lage and an abun­dance of parks.” Gar­den Ter­races has a cen­tral open air atrium with shared walk­ways, green­ery and com­mu­nal ar­eas de­signed to foster well­be­ing and social ex­change.

Gar­den Ter­races in New­mar­ket of­fers lower den­sity liv­ing close to the city as well as parks and lo­cal gath­er­ing places such as New­mar­ket Vil­lage.
