UNITS HIT A RIGHT NOTE FOR BUYERS
Paying homage to its historic beginnings as the site of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Stockwell’s latest development will produce two buildings dubbed Encore and Virtuoso.
Stockwell managing director Mark Stockwell said the company looked to a musical reference to name the project because of the site’s original purpose. “A virtuoso is a highly skilled master or expert and that idea of skill and precision is what we have applied to the design of the building and apartments within,” Mr Stockwell said.
“Hence the name was fitting.
“Encore, coming after Virtuoso, plays off an audience calling for more and as such we are delivering up a repeat performance of quality, large apartments sought by the market.”
Construction has moved on Virtuoso with building complete to level seven with its roof framing underway with completion expected soon. Encore is following fast behind with inground works commenced.
“When we first acquired the land for Riverpoint, our residential community adjoining Virtuoso and Encore, it was clear that this was an unrepeatable part of West End,” Mr Stockwell said.
“In conceptualising the buildings of Virtuoso and Encore and learning from our neighbouring project Riverpoint, we knew that there was demand for larger apartments that were different to the stock typically being offered in the market.
“In Virtuoso we offer only three, four and five-bedroom residences and in Encore only two and three-bedroom apartments, with an emphasis on three bedrooms.
“The four and five bedroom apartments in Virtuoso were among the first to sell.”
Mr Stockwell said the development had attracted a range of different buyers, from professionals, retirees and downsizers to families.
“All who want to spend less time and money maintaining a large home and more time doing what they enjoy,” he said.
When both are completed, more than 800 people are expected to move in.
Virtuoso and Encore will offer large, low maintenance apartments in secure buildings with landscaping and recreational facilities. Virtuoso features 77 three, four and five-bedroom apartments which will be complete and ready to occupy in January. Encore will have 60 two and three-bedroom apartments with completion set for spring 2019.
Construction has moved apace on Virtuoso is expected to be ready for residents in January; while Encore’s completion set for spring 2019.
