Buy­ers can live like roy­alty, with Bris­bane’s new “su­per homes in the sky” re­leased to the mar­ket.

The Monar­chs start from $2.76 mil­lion, and sit at the top of 443 Queen St, which is be­ing de­vel­oped by Cbus Prop­erty.

Cbus Prop­erty CEO Adrian Pozzo said there had been a surge in $2 mil­lion-plus lux­ury apart­ment sales in Bris­bane.

“Eco­nomic ben­e­fits, record in­fra­struc­ture, in­creased in­ter­state mi­gra­tion and down­siz­ers look­ing for the lux­u­ries of a free­stand­ing home close to the city are key life­style fac­tors driv­ing this trend,” Mr Pozzo said.

Just re­cently, a lux­ury sky home at The Abian in the Bris­bane CBD sold for $4.15 mil­lion.

It was pur­chased by a cou­ple from Wagga Wagga in New South Wales who plan to re­tire to the city.

An­other sky home apart­ment in the Ad­mi­ralty precinct re­cently sold for $2.725 mil­lion.

Mr Pozzo ex­pected strong in­ter­est in The Monar­chs, which he said of­fered an “ex­cit­ing new pav­il­ion-style of ex­clu­sive liv­ing”.

Just 10 The Monar­chs su­per homes will be avail­able for pur­chase, with each one boast­ing three or four large bed­rooms, 3m-high ceil­ings and a prime dou­ble-corner po­si­tion with perime­ter glaz­ing mak­ing each floor plan unique.

Each one also has open plan liv­ing spa­ces, a lux­u­ri­ous kitchen fit­ted with Gagge­nau ap­pli­ances, large bath­rooms with am­ple stor­age, a screened dry­ing bal­cony, hard­wood floors and nat­u­ral stone.

The size of each The Monar­chs sky home is “com­pa­ra­ble to a free­stand­ing fam­ily home” at 193sq m which is 4sq m larger than the av­er­age floor size of a new Aus­tralian home (houses and apart­ments), ac­cord­ing to a re­cent Com­mSec Eco­nomic In­sights re­port.

In ad­di­tion to The Monar­chs, 443 Queen St has two pent­houses priced at $6.5 mil­lion and $7.5 mil­lion.

The over­all de­sign of 443 Queen St – built ex­clu­sively for Bris­bane – moves away from a typ­i­cal “sealed square plan” tower to open up and nat­u­rally ven­ti­late every apart­ment.

De­signed by Sin­ga­pore-based WOHA and Bris­bane-based Ar­chi­tec­tus, the building has been de­scribed as an “ur­ban oa­sis” – it will have sky parks and gar­dens through­out the tower.

Res­i­dents-only ameni­ties in­clude pri­vate din­ing and lounge ar­eas with a fire­place, a MasterChef kitchen, mul­ti­ple bar­be­cue and out­door din­ing ar­eas, a 25m in­fin­ity edge pool over­look­ing the Bris­bane River, pool­side ca­bana lounges and sun decks, a re­lax­ation and yoga zone, a gym and out­door gar­dens with a walk­ing track.

443 Queen St boasts some of Bris­bane’s most spec­tac­u­lar sky homes. The pent­houses (top pic­ture) start from $6.5 mil­lion and The Monar­chs (above) start from $2.76 mil­lion. The tower has been de­signed as an ur­ban oa­sis with parks and gar­dens in the tower.
