SAILAWAY SUCCESS

The opportunit­y to secure a place in Bulimba’s prestige Boatyard developmen­t is running out, with just two of the luxury fourbedroo­m riverfront apartments remaining.

In a rush to snap-up a prestige riverfront home in Brisbane, recent sales in the developmen­t included a local downsizer from nearby Balmoral, and a Sydney buyer who purchased an apartment sight unseen for $1.9 million.

The remaining two apartments are sure to be equally hot property, with recent sales contributi­ng to market growth, putting Brisbane at the top of the nation’s prestige property charts.

TOTAL Property Group managing director Adrian Parsons, who is managing the sales of the remaining apartments at The Boatyard Bulimba, said liveabilit­y, affordabil­ity and the opportunit­y to move closer to family were key drivers for residents relocating from interstate.

AFFORDABLE HOMES

The first affordable housing developmen­t to be constructe­d under the Queensland Government’s $2 billion Partnering for Growth initiative is on track for a January completion date in Brisbane’s inner south.

The developmen­t at 126 Cornwall Street, Woolloonga­bba will provide 32 new affordable homes in a partnershi­p between community housing provider Brisbane Housing Company and youth housing and support service Brisbane Youth Service.

Five of the units have been designed specifical­ly for young people, including one for a young family.

Brisbane Youth Service CEO Annemaree Callander said the housing would be lifechangi­ng for young people who had very few affordable options for longer term, stable housing and would also offer support services to help young people access education, training and jobs.
