Hamilton Harbour Moves In
Gavin Tonnet 22 Nov 2011
The first residents are moving into their apartments in the distinctive Harbour One and Harbour Two Towers, just 7km from the Brisbane CBD.
Queensland Deputy Premier, Treasurer and Minister for State Development, the Honourable Andrew Fraser MP, officially opened the buildings, marking the completion of the first two stages of the three stage $500 million development, the first ever project under the Urban Land Development Authority (UDLA) scheme.
A joint venture between Leighton Properties and Devine Limited, Hamilton Harbour’s first two towers, respectively 22 and 19 storeys have stood out in the marketplace, with off-the-plan apartment sales eclipsing all others during 2010 and the first quarter of 2011.
Gavin Tonnet, National Head of Residential at Leighton Properties, notes the allure.
“Hamilton Harbour is a unique mixed-use development and its resounding success underpins the movement towards people seeking a precinct lifestyle that includes recreation, retail and work spaces all in the one place."
“Buyer take-up has reinforced that value and style together with the lifestyle offered at Hamilton Harbour is a great formula for the market. Sales continue to be strong with the third tower, Riverside Hamilton, already at 50 per cent sold."
CONSTRUCTION AHEAD OF SCHEDULE
Devine Limited Managing Director & CEO, Mr David Keir said Hamilton Harbour had out performed competitors and surpassed all market expectations.
“Each tower has gone into construction ahead of schedule based on strong presales."
“It’s a good indication to the market that if you can get the product right, the buyers are there to take it up.”
Mr Keir said, “This week those buyers have been delighted that construction has finished in record time and they can settle earlier than expected.”
“The Boulevard retail precinct and the commercial tenancies as part of KSD are currently under construction with an anticipated delivery in late 2012.”
Hamilton Harbour will feature 660 apartments in three residential buildings, commercial office space and 5,000sqm vibrant retail space consisting of a supermarket, showrooms, ground floor specialty retail and restaurants, a gymnasium, strata offices, car parking and a public park.
