Art Deco Inspired Apartment Development Takes Shape In Albion


Sales have commenced at new apartment development, Deco Residences, located 4.5 kilometres from Brisbane CBD in Albion.

Developed by Melbourne-based company OpenCorp, Deco Residences is a 154 dwelling apartment development designed to suit owner-occupiers seeking generous apartment sizes and an appreciation of the art deco period design.

OpenCorp Director Allister Lewison said the development was built with a focus on locals who will benefit from the inner-city location.

Deco Residences is made up of a six and seven-storey building, featuring a curving façade designed by Rothelowman architects and inspired by the White Cliffs of Dover on the English coastline and the iconic art deco influence.

All fixtures, fittings and finishes are reminiscent of the deco style, with the addition of modern appointments such as engineered timber floorboards and high-end kitchen appliances.

In keeping with the generous apartment sizes typical of the deco period, dwellings in Deco Residences have been designed with size and quality in mind.

Particular attention has been paid to include generous external areas above the market standard, allowing residents to bring the outdoors in and appreciate views across the city skyline.

One-bedroom apartments range from 54 -57 square metres internally and are priced from $399,000.

All two-bedroom apartments include two bathrooms and come with the option of a study nook. The internal area of the two-bedroom apartments range from 75 - 86 square metres and start at $535,000.

Also available are several three-bedroom, two bathroom apartments, again with the additional option of a study nook. The internal area of the three-bedroom apartments range from 90 -118 square metres and start at $670,000.

Further complementing the individual residences are the development’s recreational communal areas, including a pool and tranquil garden oasis, and at least one car park and storage space per apartment.

Located in Albion, the location of Deco Residences positions residents just five minutes from Fortitude Valley and 10 minutes from the CBD.

The development is situated among established infrastructure and facilities like Brisbane Grammar School, Albion Village and Westfield Chermside, and the Royal Brisbane Hospital.

Construction of Deco Residences is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2017.
