In the heart of Newstead, Brisbane, a new development is under construction. Meet Ella, of Chester & Ella. This new luxury tower of residences has been designed by the award-winning team at Hayball Architecture to compliment Chester, the first feature tower. Property developer, Kokoda Property, has recognised the need for high-end premium residences in attractive and convenient locations, with specially designed lifestyle amenities.
Chester & Ella has a head-start on the competition, as it was the only development of its kind in Brisbane when it was announced in 2016. Kokoda Property has a track record of delivering high-quality products, which they are excited about introducing to Brisbane.
Centred in a triangle between the Valley, Emporium precinct, and James Street precinct, Chester & Ella apartment owners will have access to a vibrant arts community, elite universities, and globally renowned restaurants. The enviable Brisbane climate will make the 5-minute walk to the CBD a pleasant affair, and once there, residents can find an array of boutique outlets and restaurants with every cuisine on offer.
The first release of Chester & Ella apartments sold phenomenally well, with a record 45 sales in one week. The developer is confident that the remaining apartments will sell quickly, given construction is well underway, and there are superb luxe amenities on offer for residents.
On top of health and wellness facilities, owners will have access to the ‘event precinct’ of level 5 and 6. Designed by international Ministry of Design, from Singapore, residents will have hotel-style access to a range of high-end facilities without ever having to leave home. There are private function rooms as well as a dining room and show kitchen where residents can book a personal chef and catering team for dinner parties.
Outside, there are terraced views of Brisbane’s CBD. Residents can warm themselves beside the fire pit or play a game of table tennis on a custom-made concrete table which doubles as an alfresco dining table.
On level 18, there is another outdoor terrace with a swimming pool, spa, golf putting greens, bbq kitchen and outdoor theatre. Residents can use this area to unwind after work or relax with friends and family on the weekend.
Downstairs, walk through a grand lobby and be greeted by the 7-day Concierge. The entry space is softened by custom lighting, while ceilings and herringbone oak flooring create a feeling of decadence that stays with you as you take the elevator to your floor.
With generous floorplans, 62 sqm minimum, each apartment is relaxed, refined and understated. Your home has been expertly designed with a monochromatic palette of cool natural stone and matte black and gold finishes. Your kitchen is inspired by prominent New York designs and features natural stone benchtops, an island bench, and an undermount sink. Some Chester & Ella homes have a butler’s pantry, which is perfect for homeowners who love to entertain. Even if you don’t, butler’s pantries are excellent for extra storage or hiding dirty dishes while hosting celebrations.
Meanwhile, your bathroom is elegantly simple. White surfaces, matte-black tapware, and recessed timber-inspired shelving create a refined, modern aesthetic. These elements combined with a high-gloss mirrored vanity with smart shelving will transform your bathroom experience.
Starting from $430,000, it’s not surprising Chester & Ella is selling fast in Brisbane. These apartments are perfect for young professionals or established downsizers.
