The Courier-Mail - Property - - Front Page -

UNI­VER­SITY of Western Syd­ney strate­gic plan­ning ex­pert Dr Paul Row­land has de­cided to sell his unit in the Tor­breck com­plex, at High­gate Hill.

The build­ing was Queens­land’s first high-rise apart­ment block. It was built in 1959 and her­itage­listed in 2000.

Dr Row­land has owned the 10th floor apart­ment in the Dornoch Tce build­ing since 2003.

He lived in it for about six months last year, but has been rent­ing it out oth­er­wise.

The two-bed­room unit has a large bal­cony and views of the CBD, Bris­bane River and The Gabba.

It is to be auc­tioned on July 30 through Ray White CBD Res­i­den­tial as part of a mega auc­tion with more than 60 prop­er­ties to be of­fered un­der the ham­mer.

Dr Row­land said the apart­ment, which still has its orig­i­nal kitchen, had a sense of Bris­bane’s past about it.

‘‘It also has the best views of Bris­bane,’’ he said.
