AS IN­NER-CITY Bris­bane runs out of de­vel­op­ment space, only two op­tions re­main – build up­wards or move out­wards. This edi­tion of Home showcases both. Two 20-storey tow­ers are set for Mil­ton (story page 8) and an all-fe­male team is de­liv­er­ing 73 new apart­ments to Kan­ga­roo Point (story pages 16). Mean­while, Ox­ley may be get­ting its first multi-level apart­ment build­ing (story page 6). There is also a de­vel­op­ment mile­stone for Bris­bane’s east. A Thorn­lands project is about to be­come the first rolled out un­der the South East Thorn­lands Struc­ture Plan, which will cre­ate a new fully planned com­mu­nity for the bay­side (story page 12).

Part of Villa World’s $500 mil­lion Red­lands work­book, the project is a pos­i­tive sign for growth in the re­gion.

But the knock-on ef­fects of a busy Bris­bane de­vel­op­ment mar­ket are not only felt in the fringe and outer sub­urbs.

A Gold Coast project has recorded $20 mil­lion in sales in one month (story page 10) and the Sun­shine Coast is en­joy­ing a boost as de­vel­op­ers and in­vestors re­alise its value com­par­a­tive to the cap­i­tal (story page 14).

When the Bris­bane mar­ket is strong, all of south east Queens­land en­joys the ben­e­fits.
