SALES OF SOUTH BANK UNITS SOAR

The Courier-Mail - Home - - LAVISH FEATURES - SAMANTHA HEALY

A surge in sales has seen $12 mil­lion in new apart­ments sold in just 60 days at the South­point de­vel­op­ment at South Bank.

The high­est price achieved at the $600 mil­lion An­thony John Group de­vel­op­ment was $5.4 mil­lion, with a lo­cal buyer snap­ping up the home-sized 380sq m Em­po­rium Res­i­dence with a 20m city/river- fac­ing bal­cony. The de­vel­op­ment is made up of three tow­ers – The Apart­ments tower (com­pleted), The Em­po­rium Res­i­dences and Em­po­rium Apart­ments and the new Em­po­rium Ho­tel (un­der-con­struc­tion), and a com­mer­cial tower hous­ing the head­quar­ters for Flight Cen­tre.

Both The Apart­ments and Em­po­rium Apart­ments have sold out, with set­tle­ments now un­der­way.

Just four Em­po­rium Res­i­dences are still avail­able for pur­chase, with con­struc­tion on the de­vel­op­ment due for com­ple­tion early to mid-next year.

South­point sales agent Bryce O’Con­ner said lo­cal in­ter­est had re­mained strong, with the de­vel­op­ment tick­ing the right boxes for buy­ers at all price lev­els.

“The in­ter­est in South­point con­tin­ues to be ex­cep­tional,” he said. “The com­bi­na­tion of the lo­ca­tion, which is un­par­al­leled, fan­tas­tic re­tail and din­ing amenity, and over­all qual­ity and fin­ish has been a real win­ning for­mula.

“I have no doubt that if South­point had an­other res­i­den­tial build­ing we would sell out again.”

An­thony John Group man­ag­ing direc­tor Tony John said cashed-up baby boomers had come to the fore as con­struc­tion pro­gressed on the fi­nal stage – Em­po­rium Res­i­dences and the new 143-suite flag­ship Em­po­rium Ho­tel.

“We have a wait­ing list of buy­ers for the two sold out stages, and are see­ing a real spike in in­ter­est at the top end of the mar­ket for our re­main­ing Em­po­rium Res­i­dences,” Mr John said.

“The added bonus of hav­ing ac­cess to the ser­vices of Em­po­rium Ho­tel ... has been a real deal clincher. It’s such a unique and com­pelling of­fer­ing for Bris­bane.”

The re­main­ing Em­po­rium Res­i­dences start from $1.95 mil­lion. Buy­ers are be­ing tempted by the prom­ise of “five-star ho­tel living ev­ery sin­gle day” with res­i­dents given free or by fee ac­cess to a host of ho­tel ser­vices in­clud­ing a door­man, room ser­vice, valet park­ing, dry clean­ing ser­vices and more.

The res­i­dences them­selves boast gen­er­ous open-plan lay­outs, pre­mium fin­ishes and ap­pli­ances, se­cure, above ground park­ing, en­ter­tainer bal­conies and spec­tac­u­lar views of the river and CBD, or over High­gate Hill to the hin­ter­land.

The South­point Em­po­rium Res­i­dences of­fers its res­i­dents the ser­vices of the Em­po­rium Ho­tel.
