Adding new level of style

The Courier-Mail - Home - - NEWS - EMILY BLACK

Ex­pe­ri­enced home builders Zac Krstev and David Liekari of ZD Projects have em­barked on their first multi-res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment.

The duo were ex­perts in the knock­down and re­build in­dus­try, hav­ing com­pleted sev­eral projects in the Camp Hill and Coor­pa­roo area.

“A lot of times in this area you get a house that’s on two lots and you knock it down and build two new homes,” Mr Krstev said.

“We started out small, a fam­ily com­pany, my wife (Sara) is a de­signer, so she worked in the in­dus­try for about 10 years be­fore we de­cided to do our thing.

“We de­sign and build top-end lux­ury homes in the Camp Hill/Coor­pa­roo area.”

Mr Krstev said af­ter hear­ing of buy­ers’ offthe-plan ex­pe­ri­ences, they de­cided to bring an­other level of lux­ury and in­tegrity to the unit mar­ket.

“We’ve been do­ing lux­ury homes for I guess seven or eight years … we started look­ing around at some­thing dif­fer­ent, like units and just no­ticed a lot of the fin­ishes and spec level was not as high as we ex­pected com­pared to houses.

“We wanted to give this a try to add that level of lux­ury to the unit mar­ket and just a smaller de­vel­op­ment.

“What you see is what you get, when it comes to the pic­tures and hope­fully peo­ple will be pleas­antly sur­prised with the end prod­uct, rather than dis­ap­pointed.

“A lot of times I’ve heard you get the nice ren­ders and you buy off that and then when you get the end prod­uct it’s not what you ex­pect.

“I am hop­ing it will be the other way around and we build qual­ity from the ground up.”

The ex­ist­ing home, which Mr Krstev said had been oc­cu­pied by squat­ters on and off for the past six years, was de­mol­ished two weeks ago.

“When we first drove past, we though geez this is a tough spot to work with be­cause they didn’t have a drive­way or a garage, and there is a lot of dig­ging and ex­ca­va­tion that has to be done to make it us­able.”

It was the lo­ca­tion that sold the pair on the site, which em­braces Bris­bane’s cafe cul­ture and is within walk­ing dis­tance from the lo­cal City Cat ter­mi­nal. “Orig­i­nally we con­sid­ered the op­tion of just one house, but at that price point, it would make it a $6 mil­lion-plus, which isn’t that af­ford­able,” Mr Krstev said.

“But when you turn it into three units, you’re not los­ing that much, ex­cept for a lit­tle bit of back­yard and you’re talk­ing about a mas­sive dif­fer­ence in the amount of peo­ple that can af­ford it and en­joy the beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tion, views and el­e­va­tion.”

The project is due to be com­pleted by the end of 2019.

Place Kan­ga­roo Point di­rec­tor Si­mon Caulfield is mar­ket­ing 47 Collings, phone 0437 935 912 for more in­for­ma­tion.
