‘Bohemia’, in Brisbane’s inner West End is designed to pay homage to the character and industrial heritage of its surrounding area.
The $51 million development at 75 Jane Street is the latest from West End-based Turrisi Properties, known for their strong track record of attracting local purchasers.
Designed by architects Rothelowman the development is designed with a singular tower with a dual façade, with one side reflecting the warehouses and factories of old West End by a saw-toothed roof pattern and on the other, white timber panels referencing the timber and tin workers’ cottages which are synonymous with the suburb.
Bohemia will consist of 94 apartments in one, two and three bedroom configurations over eight stories.
An expansive rooftop terrace with recreational facilities provides views over West End and further afield.
Apartments feature spacious living areas with a Bohemian mix of timber, glass and concrete finishes and bespoke cabinetry. Large entertaining balconies provide a variety of outlooks.
The development has been met with immediate sales success with over 40 percent of the development already sold, including $17.5 million in off-the-plan sales on its launch weekend early this month.
Apartments start at $390,000. Construction of Bohemia is expected to be completed in late 2017.
“Our long standing connection to the area allows us to understand the suburb’s fabric and culture,” says Turrisi Properties managing director Gaetano Turrisi.
“We know what West End needs and producing apartments where people want to live has been the key to our success.
“Purchasers have been owner-occupiers, including some first home buyers.
“The location provides everything the modern West End resident looks for – a connection to the arts precinct, nearby transport to the city and elsewhere, and walkability to shops, bars and cafes.”
By the end of 2017, Turrisi Properties will have delivered a total of 248 high-quality apartments to West End at a development value of $142 million.
Turrisi’s neighbouring West End apartment projects include The Glass Factory and Ink Apartments.
