A Redlands project, more than a decade in the mak­ing, is set to de­liver a ground-break­ing re­sult, in­cor­po­rat­ing more than 90 apart­ments, in­clud­ing two six-bed­room penthouses.

Redlands prop­erty an­a­lyst and de­vel­oper Chris An­der­son said two 600sq m, two-level penthouses will be in­cluded in the AFT Projects’ Toon­dah Out­look de­vel­op­ment.

“The two Toon­dah Out­look su­per penthouses will be the pre­mium prop­er­ties over­look­ing pres­ti­gious Raby Bay and bay is­lands,” Mr An­der­son said.

“These are 600sq m plus of liv­ing over two lev­els with pri­vate in­ter­nal lift ac­cess.

“They’ll sit at the high­est point in Red­land City – the only place in the Redlands with views of the Bris­bane CBD, Glasshouse Moun­tains and un­lim­ited bay views to the Gold Coast. In fact, the Gold Coast Q1 Tower is vis­i­ble at night.

“They of­fer a never be­fore seen level of fin­ish, 10-car ac­com­mo­da­tion, pri­vate work­shop and boat/car­a­van stor­age, as well as an op­tional ma­rina berth.”

Due for com­ple­tion mid-2019, Mr An­der­son said he wasn’t sur­prised the nine-storey, $100 mil­lion re­sort-style project, which is the largest of its kind in the Redlands area, had gen­er­ated a flood of in­ter­est.

“Toon­dah Out­look has, from its in­cep­tion been about life­style with would-be down­siz­ers and the 21st cen­tury fam­ily in mind,” he said.

“We looked at global move­ments, at pop­u­la­tion shifts and life­style de­mands across age groups and we quickly con­cluded that what de­vel­op­ers saw as down­size dif­fered wildly to what peo­ple wanted,” he said.

“Sure, many now want to move from the large fam­ily home, but they don’t want to com­pro­mise. They want space but want to down size the work, ef­fort and up­keep, not the qual­ity or way of life.”

He said when they pur­chased the prop­erty amid the Global Fi­nan­cial Cri­sis, the site was ear­marked for more than 200 town­houses, but Mr An­der­son said its “un­par­al­leled lo­ca­tion” pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity to do more.

“The space means that above and be­yond the norm, we can of­fer much more,” he said.

“The com­plex will of­fer an in­cor­po­rated busi­ness cen­tre, func­tion room, re­cep­tion and en­try ar­eas, three-street frontage, a men’s shed, craft room, pool, gym and sauna.

“Yet we still have the room to of­fer stor­age for jet skis, boats, RVs and two cars and we’ll have the se­cu­rity and on-hand man­age­ment for own­ers.

“For many who travel, that lock it and leave it abil­ity, and to do it with real se­cu­rity and care, is vi­tal.”

He said al­though con­struc­tion had al­ready started, buy­ers still had the op­por­tu­nity to cus­tom de­sign their apart­ments.

“They’re only lim­ited by the ex­ter­nal walls, so they’re lay­ing it out in­ter­nally the way they want,” he said.

“The stan­dard of in­clu­sion is al­ready very high, but cus­tomers can also be in­volved in all of their se­lec­tions.

“It’s not a one size fits all, we’re cus­tom builders and al­ways have been.”

Mr An­der­son said all of the sales thus far were to owner-oc­cu­piers, with about 60 of the 99 apart­ments sold.

Due for com­ple­tion in mid-2019, Toon­dah Out­look is the largest lux­ury re­sort-style project un­der­taken in the Redlands.
