Buy­ers seek­ing to se­cure a two-bed­room apart­ment in Lutwyche have a choice of only eight re­main­ing in Tessa De­vel­op­ment’s lat­est residential project Hunt­ing­ton Res­i­dences.

Ur­bis’s Out­look Lutwyche – A Con­text on Business, Cul­ture, Life­style and Residential fore­casts the sub­urb to lever­age off the sig­nif­i­cant amount of cur­rent and fu­ture in­fra­struc­ture in­vest­ment oc­cur­ring in the in­ner north Bris­bane sub­urb.

“Sup­ported by a strong pub­lic trans­port net­work, Lutwyche is strate­gi­cally po­si­tioned within close prox­im­ity to a num­ber of Bris­bane’s largest em­ploy­ment nodes,” the re­port stated.

Tessa De­vel­op­ments man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Bren­dan Tutt said the prox­im­ity of the Lutwyche bus in­ter­change was one of the most im­por­tant fac­tors sur­round­ing the suc­cess of the de­vel­op­ment.

“It’s lit­er­ally about 60m away, it’s one of the ma­jor bus in­ter­changes in Bris­bane,” he said.

“Also, the lo­cal­ity to Ke­dron Brook and be­ing on the Wil­ston side of Lutwyche Rd is very much a de­sir­able lo­ca­tion.

“The cur­rent $60 mil­lion up­grade of Lutwyche Shop­ping Cen­tre has been of a huge ben­e­fit to us. We’ve seen a lot of buy­ers just lo­cally be­cause of that.”

Mr Tutt said res­i­dents had al­ready started to move into the 29-apart­ment ”bou­tique’’ de­vel­op­ment.

“It’s great to see ac­tiv­ity in our area and from a rental point of view, av­er­age days va­cant has been less than seven days,” he said.

Mr Tutt said feed­back from the res­i­dents who had al­ready moved in was that they loved the space and de­sign.

“We put a lot of ef­fort into the de­sign on this par­tic­u­lar project and worked with our ar­chi­tects, Red Door Ar­chi­tec­ture, and also our in­te­rior de­signer 26 Street De­sign,” he said.

“We worked to make sure we added some­thing dif­fer­ent to the mar­ket place.

“In par­tic­u­lar work­ing on our fa­cades and en­sur­ing the street ap­peal of the project stood out from ev­ery­thing else in the mar­ket­place.

“There’s been a lot of ho­moge­nous stock de­vel­op­ment in that mar­ket­place over the years and we de­cided to come in there and re­ally raise the bar.

“If you stand in front of our build­ing, and then look at other build­ings in the mar­ket place, it def­i­nitely has a much more eye­catch­ing de­sign to it.”

Res­i­dents have started to move into Tessa De­vel­op­ment’s Hunt­ing­ton Res­i­dences in Lutwyche.
