Your home to good health

Aus­tralia’s long­est rooftop pool, a detox sauna and spa, and a com­mer­cial-sized fit­ness stu­dio are just some of the perks that come with liv­ing at Cav­corp’s Lu­cent Gas­works de­vel­op­ment.

Cav­corp di­rec­tor Damien Caval­lucci said when they pur­chased the site in 2014, they had a vi­sion to cre­ate an “iconic” build­ing with a health and well­ness fo­cus.

“The unique is­land site had many plan­ning fac­tors to con­sider, given it was lo­cated in the heart of Newstead’s ur­ban re­newal,” Mr Caval­lucci said.

“We con­structed Lu­cent in 18 months with the first res­i­dent mov­ing in De­cem­ber 2017.”

He said the “well­ness pre­mium” was a global phe­nom­e­non, which would be the “new stan­dard” in liv­ing.

“Our de­mo­graphic de­mand ac­cess to a healthy life,” he said.

“Lu­cent is our own vi­sion of a ver­ti­cal com­mu­nity. If you look at global cities such as New York, Mi­ami and Lon­don, there is strong trend to health and well­ness.

“Peo­ple want to be health­ier and hap­pier. “We be­lieve our build­ing pro­vides the ameni­ties to make this a re­al­ity.”

At 55m long, Mr Caval­lucci said the pool was the long­est rooftop pool in the coun­try.

“We ex­ten­sively re­searched ev­ery rooftop in Aus­tralia,” he said.

“We take in­spi­ra­tion from trav­el­ling to global des­ti­na­tions. Bris­bane is unique with our sub­trop­i­cal cli­mate, Lu­cent’s 55m pool is a cel­e­bra­tion of our out­door life­style and cre­ates a true point of dif­fer­ence.

“We are cater­ing to the lo­cal de­mo­graphic who pre­dom­i­nantly are ex­er­cis­ing pro­fes­sion­als. They are time poor and en­joy hav­ing a rooftop re­sort with world­class ameni­ties.

“We even added in un­der­wa­ter speak­ers to our pri­vate rooftop pool to fur­ther en­hance each per­son’s ex­pe­ri­ence when swim­ming.”

Mr Caval­lucci said the build­ing was part of a new din­ing and re­tail des­ti­na­tion known as Long Is­land, which would in­cor­po­rate lush land­scap­ing, cu­rated food and drink and health and well­be­ing.

“Some of our first ten­ants who have moved in in­clude world-class cof­fee house, Cam­pos, and the big­gest game-changer in Aus­tralian fit­ness, To­tal Fu­sion Plat­inum,” he said.

“We are wit­ness­ing res­i­dents do a hot yoga class, buy brunch and a cof­fee, meet friends for a game of vir­tual golf — all with­out hav­ing to leave the build­ing. We have cre­ated an Aus­tralian back­yard on the rooftop.”

Lu­cent Gas­works is a 17-storey lux­ury res­i­den­tial tower cre­ated by Cav­corp to uniquely fit the de­mand in Bris­bane for a health and well­ness, con­tem­po­rary life­style.
