Property developers EPV Developments are set to launch their new boutique 10-storey apartment tower called The Wellington to market, perfectly positioned in East Brisbane only 1.5 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD in the highly sought-after Woolloongabba / East Brisbane café and dining precinct.
The ultimate inner city development, The Wellington incorporates 127 spacious one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments with expansive residential recreation facilities situated above a specialty retail and dining precinct.
The ground floor of the development will feature a boutique retail area reminiscent of New York’s Chelsea Markets, where residents and visitors can enjoy a mix of quality providores, artisan retailers, restaurants and cafes and food experiences including a flagship experience from Phillip Di Bella, the founder of Australia’s largest specialty brand, Di Bella Coffee.
All apartments have been designed to offer contemporary living, maximising light and space, and are available in a variety of floor plans. The first release of apartments provides outstanding opportunities with prices from $354,000 for one bedroom apartments and from $470,000 for two bedroom apartments.
The Wellington development site is ideally located in the high-demand suburb of East Brisbane within metres of Brisbane’s sporting heartland, The Gabba stadium, which hosts a variety of spectacular events throughout the year including cricket, AFL and soccer matches.
The Wellington is closely aligned to Woolloongabba’s vibrant dining precinct, which is also home to some of Brisbane’s most popular pubs, and is a short walk from the trendy restaurant and café precinct on Logan Road, where you can enjoy award winning cafés, restaurants and a variety of high quality antiques and homewares boutiques.
Located directly across the road from the development site itself is the Sales Display Centre, providing buyers with the opportunity to utilise the interactive touchscreens to determine the apartment that suits them best and featuring a full kitchen and bathroom display.
The Wellington development company EPV Developments is a synergy of two highly successful directors, Denis Mackenzie and Karl Jameson.
Operating exclusively within the inner-city Brisbane market, EPV develops boutique mixed-use apartments and integrated living to exacting standards. The EPV vision harnesses meticulous attention to detail to produce elegantly functional apartments of uncompromising quality.
EPV Developments director Denis Mackenzie said it is exciting to have the opportunity to develop such a perfectly positioned site in a major growth suburb.
“Our due diligence research showed that Brisbane’s inner south-east is fast becoming a lifestyle destination of choice, with The Wellington development site perfectly positioned in an area of increasingly high demand,” Mr Mackenzie said.
“We wanted to make the most of this prime location by creating a development where residents can enjoy convenient and luxurious inner-city apartment living with captivating city views and a real sense of style and sophistication about where they are living,” he said.
“The Wellington’s premium residential apartments will be situated above a vibrant boutique retail and dining precinct, where residents can pick up a quality coffee from their friendly barista before heading out to enjoy their day.
“Residents can also enjoy a variety of luxurious recreational facilities including a rooftop pool and entertaining area with captivating city views, plus an extensive residents’ barbeque garden and relaxation zone on level two.
“A unique central atrium with lush tropical terraces and courtyards provides residents with a garden view and allows natural light and refreshing breezes to flow into The Wellington’s generously sized apartments.
“The sense of space inside The Wellington’s apartments has been maximised by integrating accessories into a seamless, clean and contemporary style.
“The kitchens and bathrooms feature quality appliances, fixtures and fittings and have been cleverly designed with all the modern comforts in mind.
“Apartment interiors offer a choice of light and dark colour palettes, using stone benchtops, natural earthy tones and warm timber veneers, with a selection of upgrade options allowing owners to personalise aspects of their apartment.”
The Wellington marketing manager and TOTAL Property Group managing director Adrian Parsons said this clever and contemporary new property development offers a unique opportunity for both owner occupiers and investors.
“We are seeing very strong interest in the spacious and competitively priced apartments on offer at The Wellington,” Mr Parsons said.
“East Brisbane is a high growth area experiencing increasing and ongoing demand from buyers and tenants due to the limited availability of new apartment developments in this particular area,” he said.
“The population of the East Brisbane and Woolloongabba area has increased by an average growth rate of 2.9 per cent over the past 10 years, which is significantly higher than the average population growth rate across Brisbane City as a whole of 1.9 per cent during the same period.
“East Brisbane is a highly desirable inner-city location, with excellent public transport options connecting East Brisbane with the Brisbane CBD, Fortitude Valley and the Southbank Parklands and Cultural Precinct, and superb road networks providing access to the inner city, outer suburbs and the Gold and Sunshine Coasts.
“The Wellington apartments are also ideally located so that daily errands do not require a car, achieving a WalkScore TM walkability score of 95 out of 100, compared to the greater Brisbane area’s average walkability score of just 49 out of 100.”
The Wellington apartment and retail precinct will be located on the corner of Wellington Road and Overend Street in the inner East Brisbane suburb of Woolloongabba, with one and two bedroom apartments available from $354,000.
