National property and construction company Hindmarsh has reached practical completion of the Zest mixed-use development in Kelvin Grove, Brisbane, with the first residents to move in over coming weeks and the retail space now sold.
“The feedback we’ve received from purchasers has been very positive," Hindmarsh State Manager Steve Laffey said.
"The building exceeds expectations with many new residents eager to move in straight away. The focus we placed on quality has ensured that the settlement process has been smooth and successful.”
The 650 square metre strata retail space has also been sold to private investors and is set to add vibrancy to the streetscape and convenience to Zest residents.
Developed and built by Hindmarsh, Zest is the last residential component of Kelvin Grove Urban Village, one of the country’s best examples of innovative urban village creation.
Designed by Nettletontribe, it comprises 144 one and two-bedroom apartments over 15 levels with two levels of retail and commercial space.
“Zest is a fitting finale to Kelvin Grove Urban Village and the strong response to the apartments from buyers reinforces the appeal of the precinct,” said Mr Laffey.
“Zest’s inner-city location, combined with its convenient access to restaurants, cafes, the University, gyms and many other services has resonated with owner-occupiers and investors, creating a diverse mix of new residents soon to call Zest home,” he said.
Still available in Zest is 620 square metres of commercial space offering tenants an opportunity to benefit from strong connectivity to the University, access to transport and direct links to major arterial roads.
The commercial tenancies enable occupiers to establish themselves in a new development in the heart of one of Brisbane’s most activated mixed-use precincts.
Queensland is a key growth market for Hindmarsh, which has previously delivered the Brooklyn on Brookes and Broadway on Ann apartment projects in the CBD.
The company was recently appointed to deliver a major new student accommodation project on Vulture Street by Scape.
