A $100 million luxury apartment project is set for South Brisbane’s vibrant cultural, dining and leisure precinct.
The 16-level apartment building, Opera, is located at 47 Cordelia Street and comprises ground-floor retail and office space topped by 182 one, two and three-bedroom residences with prices starting from $375,000.
Opera is the first Brisbane development for Melbourne-based Abcor Property Holdings which assembled a strong Brisbane design team to create classic, timeless urban residences that meet the needs of the local market.
Marketing agent Andrew Scriven, of Colliers International, said Opera would tap into South Brisbane’s status as a highly desirable address for CBD workers and young professionals.
Mr Scriven said the project was pitched at local owner occupiers wanting to be close to Southbank, the CBD, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and West End.
“We are also expecting interest from local and interstate investors keen to tap into a high yield rental area that is sought-after by tenants,” he said.
Brisbane architects Paul Fairweather and Anthony Jemmott have worked with Trish Szonert, of
MMO Interiors, to craft the apartment building which will feature upper levels with views of the city, Musgrave Park and west to Mt Coot-tha.
Mr Scriven said an advantage of Opera’s launch to the market at this time was the security of view corridors.
“The majority of development surrounding Opera is already known, so you can have confidence that the views you buy now will be there for years to come,” he said.
Aside from living on the doorstep of Southbank, Opera residents will have onsite leisure facilities including a roof-top pool and entertainment area with a private dining area, all overlooking the Brisbane skyline.
Mr Scriven said Opera’s design team had kept the city’s sub-tropical weather in mind by maximising living areas and opening them up to useable balconies.
“The apartments are perfectly designed to enjoy the Brisbane climate and soak up the inner city ambience of South Brisbane,” he said.
The Opera sales office is under construction at 47 Cordelia St and will open in late September.
