A total of six luxury apartments were purchased in just two days at Gallery House as it stretches skywards and buyers rush to secure a prime piece of the Brisbane riverfront.
The rainy October weekend couldn’t keep buyers away from Brookfield Residential Properties’ dual-tower project in Hamilton that saw its highest number of weekend sales since launch, with six apartments worth more than $5 million sold for an average of almost $850,000.
Gallery House, which is currently under construction, has sold more than $180 million worth of one, two and three bedroom apartments, sky homes and penthouses.
Brookfield Residential Properties’ Managing Director Lee Butterworth said sales in Gallery House had been steadily increasing over recent months as construction progressed.
“Buyer confidence is high and we are seeing those who had registered their interest earlier are now putting pen to paper and signing contracts as they see both towers appearing out of the ground,” he said.
“The first Gallery House tower is due for completion late 2019 and with downsizers accounting for the majority of buyers, many feel now is the right time to purchase and start planning their move.
“We have seen strong demand from the top-end of the market with our larger premium apartments dominating recent sales.
“These buyers are owner occupiers who not only see the financial value in owning a riverfront apartment, but also the lifestyle benefits of living on the waterfront with a vibrant restaurant and retail precinct next door.”
Mr Butterworth said the project lifted the standard of luxury apartment living in Hamilton.
“High-end buyers are looking for luxury, location and quality and have found it in Gallery House,” he said.
“Gallery House’s generously-sized apartments will be built and finished to the highest quality with touches of luxury that will impress the most discerning buyer,” he said.
“The classic timber and white colour scheme gives the apartments a sense of timelessness, while the floor to ceiling windows frame the views and harness the natural light.
“We partnered with Cottee Parker Architects to create a unique, curved design that mimics the riverfront to ensure our premium apartments can take full advantage of the stunning vistas.
“A rooftop infinity pool with barbeque and lounge area provides the perfect platform for residents to escape and take in panoramic views of the city lights, river and encircling mountains; while a lush podium garden allows residents to immerse themselves in nature.”
