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.
