THE latest offering at Australand’s flagship Yungaba project at Kangaroo Point will channel a modern inner city vibe to entice young professionals seeking a foothold in inner Brisbane’s property market.
The diversified property group has drawn inspiration from the urban powerhouses of New York and Melbourne to create Linc, a collection of contemporary apartments just a stone’s throw from the CBD.
Australand general manager, Queensland residential division Richard Fulcher said Linc was in synch with the lifestyle aspirations of young urban professionals or astute investors looking to capitalise on this emerging demographic.
“This group is technology-savvy, smart, well-travelled and appreciates style and innovation,” he said.
“Australand has listened to what they want in terms of location, layout, finishes and technology, and we believe Linc is in tune with their high expectations.”
Linc’s design embraces a modern industrial vibe with sleek lines, simple but striking finishes and bold colour schemes.
It will take shape across six levels on land next to the iconic Story Bridge and immediately west of Yungaba’s first stage, Promontory, and namesake iconic Yungaba House.
“Linc offers an inner city position from where its residents can quickly and easily connect with the CBD, Fortitude Valley, New Farm, Brisbane River and local parks and cafes,” he said.
“Living here puts young professionals on the doorstep of their workplaces and social hubs while providing living spaces that are innovative, stylish and practical/functional.
“Linc will suit those who enjoy the buzz and convenience of inner-city living but have an income that falls within the entry-level price bracket.”
The first stage of Linc will offer 45 one and two-bedroom apartments within a six-level boutique building.
Apartments range in size from 64sqm to 110sqm and are priced from $365,000 to $675,000.
The location affords some of the apartments filtered city views through the Story Bridge, or alternatively, glimpses of Yungaba’s historic gardens and the Brisbane River beyond.
Apartments will feature galley-style kitchens with Fisher & Paykel appliances, break-out spaces including technology nooks, large balconies, fully ducted air conditioning and most include a rare sought after inner CBD car space.
A number of the two-bedroom apartments have two bathrooms.
Finishes include practical and durable flooring to living and dining areas, suspended lighting, gloss joinery, stone benchtops and a choice of two colour schemes.
Construction of Linc is expected to begin in late 2013 with settlement anticipated to occur in late 2014.
Linc residents will have access to Yungaba’s riverfront access and the city’s RiverWalk network, private gardens, 25m infinity-edge lap pool and gymnasium.
Australand has started preliminary works on another stage of Yungaba, the transformation of Yungaba House into 10 luxurious residences.
More than $9 million will be spent developing the residences, which will be refurbished within the shell of a re-crafted Yungaba House. The facade and character of the building will be fully restored in the second half of this year.
The initial apartment stage of Yungaba, Promontory, is now 70 per cent sold with a limited number of two and three-bedroom apartments still remain available in Promontory, priced from $750,000 to $1,600,000 million.
Promontory’s three-bedroom absolute riverfront display apartment is open for viewing. Inspect by appointment daily between 11am and 5pm.
