The first residential tower within Park Central, a $1 billion master planned transit oriented development in Woolloongabba, will be released in June 2017.
Park Central One will feature 168 one and two bedroom luxury residences over 18 levels with ground floor retail and private rooftop garden terrace which includes swimming pool, deck and gym that take in views of Brisbane CBD and surrounds.
Developed by Singapore based Wee Hur Holdings Ltd and designed by Woods Bagot, the residential tower was earmarked for construction later this year by recently appointed building company Tomkins.
Colliers International Residential Project Manager Rachel Hutson, responsible for marketing the development, said Park Central One was designed for a local owner or a tenant wanting a convenient and active lifestyle, only 7 minutes from Brisbane CBD“Being part of a transit oriented development, Park Central One will be a hub of activity offering residents direct connection to Buranda busway and rail stations as well as dedicated bikeways link to South east Freeway and the Norman Creek Bikeway and Greenway," she said.
Park Central will also benefit from direct access to the $944 million high frequency Brisbane Metro Service for which Council handed down its business case recently. The metro, which will pass through the Buranda busway station, will significantly reduce travel time and improve services into the CBD.
The open plan living apartments within Park Central One feature a contemporary colour palette, designer kitchen with feature splashback, reconstituted stone island bench and quality Bosch stainless steel appliances.
Woolloongabba is positioned in the centre of the major employment nodes in Brisbane CBD, South Brisbane and East Brisbane. The total precinct is expected to grow by over 100,000 jobs to 2031.
Woolloongabba itself is expected to generate over 20,000 new jobs.
The future stages at Park Central will include additional residential apartments, student accommodation, all positioned around 4,300 square metre ‘sky park’ and 16,000 square metre retail precinct anchored by a supermarket, specialty stores and dining.
The master plan envisions ‘sky park’ to be a private recreation space which will include a club lounge, outdoor dining and entertaining areas, 350 square metre lap and lagoon pool with infinity edge and waterfall, a jogging track, outdoor gym equipment, table tennis, bocce, yoga lawn, grassed kick-a-bout area, outdoor cinema and fenced off-leash dog park.
