Construction on Hamilton’s first building at Gallery House is almost complete with residents close to moving into their dream riverfront apartments. Ashgrove residents Bernadette and Martin Silec have just sold their family home in preparation for the completion of Gallery House, where they have purchased a luxury three-bedroom apartment featuring an additional multi-purpose room and podium terrace on the third level.
“We wanted to downsize but we also wanted to make sure we had plenty of room for our kids and grandkids,” Mrs Silec said. “It’s nice that we’ll have plenty of extra space for guests and with the rooftop pool and barbecue area, it means we’ll still be able to do all the activities we enjoyed in our old house.”
Builder Multiplex expects residents will start moving into the 20-storey building before Christmas. Sales in Gallery House have reached $197 million, with the first building almost 90 per cent sold, and building two reaching over 75 per cent sold.
Brookfield Residential Properties managing director Lee Butterworth said he expected sales to spike. “With the bulk of construction on the first building complete, buyers can really see the quality of Gallery House, giving them the confidence to purchase and start planning their move,” he said.
“The building’s curved facade sets it apart from Brisbane’s angular high-rises and that unique shape is now evident, giving buyers a real sense of what we’re creating.”
