Brisbane is growing both in size and in reputation, now boasting a CBD with enough cosmopolitan flair to satisfy even the biggest appetite for a city-centric lifestyle. So it comes as no surprise that Australians are turning their sights to the sunny capital of Queensland and its lavish new apartment developments, either to start a new life or to make a sound investment.
Aside from the better weather, the financial benefit of buying in Brisbane is huge, certainly in comparison to Sydney. "Sydney house prices are nearly double those in the other capital cities and job creation in Queensland is on the rise," a spokesperson from Macquarie Bank commented.
The new multi-residential developments luring buyers to Brisbane are well positioned, beautifully designed and boast a range of amenities that those of a rival 5-star hotel. Let’s take a look at a few of them.
Chester & Ella
In the heart of Newstead, Brisbane, Chester & Ella grants access to the vibrant arts community, elite universities, and globally-renowned restaurants.
With generous floorplans — 62 sqm minimum — each apartment is relaxed, refined and understated. Select homes come with a butler’s pantry and all include luxury finishes such as natural stone benchtops, matte black tapware and ample storage. Add to this a suite of resort-style amenities and Chester & Ella becomes the perfect new home for young professionals or established downsizers.
Lifestyle, architecture and community epitomise Cornerstone Living, which is enviably positioned at one of Sunnybank’s most sought-after addresses.
In each apartment, open-plan living areas flood with natural light and lead seamlessly out onto large entertaining balconies where you can unwind and enjoy the tranquil setting. Together with the convenience of shopping centres, restaurants and parks on your doorstep, a vibrant and modern lifestyle is yours for the taking.
Park Central One

Mary Lane epitomises the urban, sophisticated lifestyle. Located in the heart of Brisbane, the apartments benefit from interior design that is both elegant and modern, with a balanced blend of form and function.
