As the home of the apartment building last year declared the best in Australia, Brisbane is now planning an assault on the title again with a flurry of new projects.
Brisbane-based DevCorp currently has about $300 million worth of new projects being built across the city. These include Lume at Kangaroo Point, The 28 in Fortitude Valley, Lincoln on the Park at Stones Corner, and The Woodstore in Chermside.
Lume, designed by Cox Rayner, is a $100 million 13-level boutique tower with a rooftop sky lounge with an infinity-edge pool and gym, as well as landscaped gardens and sweeping vistas of the Brisbane skyline.
“Lume is the jewel in the DevCorp crown,” says DevCorp sales manager Liz McFarland. “It sets a new level of luxury for Brisbane apartments.”
DevCorp’s The 28, with 139 apartments over 15 levels, will also have a rooftop pool, terrace, gym and great views, as well as an onsite cafe and retail area, and is a five-minute walk from the Chinatown precinct, Bakery Lane. “The 28 will bring city chic to Fortitude Valley,” says Ben Hamblett, NSW & Queensland associate director for Ausin Group’s project marketing division. “It is a high-end premium development.”
