Place to be in Dut­ton Park

The Courier-Mail - Property - - Apartments -

CON­STRUC­TION is set to be­gin in April at Stock­well’s new Dut­ton Park de­vel­op­ment, with 65 per cent of units sold al­ready.

Dut­ton Place fea­tures a mix of one and two-bed­room apart­ments across four build­ings and in a range of floor­plans.

Start­ing price for a one-bed­room apart­ment is $370,000, with the twobed­room floor­plans priced from $545,000.

‘‘Site prepa­ra­tion and pre­lim­i­nary earth­works are un­der­way and builders will be on site from April. Ev­ery­thing is run­ning to sched­ule,’’ Stock­well de­vel­op­ment man­ager Sharon Wad­dell said.

The de­vel­op­ment is not be­ing built in stages with all four build­ings sched­uled for com­ple­tion by the first half of 2012.

The apart­ments will fea­ture qual­ity fin­ishes and fix­tures, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances, air­con­di­tion­ing, broad­band in­ter­net and pro­vi­sion for cable tele­vi­sion and se­cure ac­cess.

An­other mod­ern bonus is Tel­stra’s an­nounce­ment that it will in­stall op­tic fi­bre ca­bling to each apart­ment, free of charge.

Op­tic fi­bre ca­bling en­ables su­per fast in­ter­net at 100mb per sec­ond com­pared to the cur­rent 30mb per sec­ond cur­rently avail­able.

The de­vel­op­ment is close to Park Road and Dut­ton Park train sta­tions and is di­rectly op­po­site the Boggo Road Ur­ban Vil­lage.

Ms Wad­dell said the Dut­ton Place site was not af­fected by the Jan­uary floods and the area re­mained pop­u­lar with renters given its prox­im­ity to both the PA and Mater hos­pi­tal precincts and The Univer­sity of Queen­land at St Lu­cia.

‘‘When com­pleted in 2012, it will pro­vide liv­ing close to crit­i­cal in­fra­struc­ture such as the hos­pi­tals, the ma­jor trans­port links and uni­ver­si­ties,’’ Ms Wad­dell said.

‘‘De­mand for rental ac­com­mo­da­tion will re­main strong through 2012 and com­ple­tion of Dut­ton Place will add much needed rental stock.’’
