Community and connectivity at Gallery House

PROPERTY AUSTRALIA February 25, 2020

“We don't just want to construct apartment buildings; we want to create communities,” says Brookfield Residential Properties managing director Lee Butterworth, as new residents move into Gallery House in Brisbane.

The luxury two stage development comprises 315 premium apartments and penthouses and occupies an absolute waterfront position with uninterrupted views of the Brisbane River and city skyline.

Gallery House forms part of the $5 billion, 304-hectare Northshore Hamilton development – one of the largest urban renewal projects in Queensland.260220 - Project of the Week - Gallery House

Brookfield Residential Properties has already delivered six apartment buildings at Northshore Hamilton as part of its Portside Wharf retail and residential precinct.

Butterworth says the masterplan was meticulously designed to offer some of the best living opportunities in Queensland.

“The design of our six-hectare parcel in Northshore Hamilton focuses on liveability, ensuring residents have easy access to infrastructure and amenity.

“A sense of connectivity has been achieved at Portside Wharf and we are now replicating it, on a more luxurious scale, at Gallery House.”

Gallery House offers premium resident-only facilities including a rooftop sanctuary with infinity pool, lounge and barbecue areas, and a podium level garden.

Butterworth says buyers are predominately locals looking for waterfront property without the maintenance, and with direct access to retail, restaurants, recreation and green spaces.

“The three and four-bedroom apartments and penthouses in Gallery House are bigger than many homes, so buyers don't feel like they are compromising on space,” he explains.

Amenities include the Hamilton Recreation Reserve, which has reopened following a $10 million redevelopment. The reserve boasts green space for cricket and football, an amphitheatre, picnic areas, a dog park and water play facilities.

One new resident is Paul Makepeace, who has moved to Brisbane after a decade-long stint overseas.

“After 10 years abroad, I wanted to live somewhere that provided me with something I've been missing for a while now – a sense of community,” Makepeace says.

“The location of Gallery House next to Portside Wharf, and the building's well-designed communal areas, makes it feel more like a neighbourhood than an apartment development.”

Gallery House is now 90 per cent sold, with a mix of two- and three-bedroom apartments, ‘sky homes’ and penthouses for sale ranging from $575,000 to $2.795 million.
