Lutwyche has experienced renewal and dramatic change in recent years, with the construction of new main roads and a major busway providing convenient access to nearby Brisbane CityFull summary Lutwyche has experienced renewal and dramatic change in recent years, with the construction of new main roads and a major busway providing convenient access to nearby Brisbane City.

Along with transport infrastructure, Lutwyche is also experiencing a boom in new housing developments due to recent rezoning.

“We were rezoned to high density and mixed use,” says Ray O’Brien, principal of LJ Hooker Lutwyche,” which means that instead of having a two- or three-storey limit on heights, in some areas it can go up to 12 storeys.”

While the transport construction was disruptive to locals for several years, O’Brien says there’s an upside.

“There are large parcels of land where shopping infrastructure will be replaced in a modern way. Because of the mixed-use zoning, you’re allowed to have shops and restaurants as well as apartments above it.”

With a median house price of $858,000 and strong capital growth over the past 12 months, the market is recovering confidently from the recent upheavals.

The introduction of contemporary shopping facilities and a modern facade will further bolster Lutwyche’s popularity as a lifestyle suburb near the city.

“The continual revamping of Lutwyche now includes the removal of older-style homes in rezoned areas, because it’s walking distance to the new infrastructure,” says O’Brien.

“The trend here is regrowth.”Close
