The VUE apartments are a new development located in Scarborough. This beautiful pocket of the Redcliffe Peninsular is rapidly growing, and this luxury waterfront residence has already been popular with local buyers. The VUE Scarborough offers 9 three bedroom, three-bathroom apartments with great views out into Moreton Bay.
The display & sales office for The VUE apartments is located at 103 Sutton St, Redcliffe. This is just 6-minutes drive away from the site location.
The VUE apartments are being developed by Gold Coast-based Develop2U. This five-storey building offers excellent ocean views and the premier waterfront location means these views will never be built out. The VUE has been designed with owner-occupiers in mind, specifically downsizers. Of the apartments sold so far, 75% of those have gone to locals who were already living in the Moreton Bay region. The VUE is one of the only luxury apartment complexes currently under construction in the region and marks a key transition in the region, with data suggesting beachfront property at Scarborough is heading in the same direction as infamous Mermaid Beach strip “Millionaires’ Row” (Hedges Avenue).
Construction on The VUE commenced in May 2018 and the development is expected to be completed by May 2019.
The VUE apartments at Scarborough are located at 131 Flinders Parade, with outstanding water views across Moreton Bay from each apartment. These residences are within 500m of Scarborough town centre, with a lovely cafe strip perfect for an early coffee or a mid-morning brunch. Redcliffe Shopping Centre, with a range of boutique stores, is also just 3km away for all your shopping needs. Redcliffe Hospital is also only 3km away which will provide excellent peace of mind for anyone looking to downsize in their retirement.
The VUE Scarborough is also located just 5km from the brand-new Kippa-Ring Train Station which was complete in 2017. The Sunshine Coast is 1 hour and 15 minutes to the north and Brisbane CBD is just over 50 minutes away.
The VUE apartments feature a secure underground carpark, with each apartment having two car parks as standard. The two-level car park also features lockable bike storage and additional storage space for each apartment. The gardens on the side (including the courtyards of the ground floor apartments, are beautifully landscaped) and there is security intercom to each apartment.
At The VUE, there are two apartments per floor, with most also offering 2 car parks per apartment. Apartments are sized between 175m² and 197m² with balconies between 49m² and 63m². These generous sizes make The VUE apartments perfect for downsizers who have come from traditional Queenslander homes. The ground floor apartments have 86m² external courtyards and 42m² balconies. All off-the-plan buyers can choose between tiled and timber flooring options for their new apartment. The balconies are tiled as standard and the bedrooms are finished with luxury carpet underfoot.
Air conditioning is ducted throughout and there will also be ceiling fans in the bedrooms, adding to the breezy feel of the apartments and making them perfect for the Australian summer.
Each apartment is also fitted with the latest in Home Automation Technology, taking The VUE apartments into the era of smart homes.
All residences at The VUE have spacious, open plan designs. There is great separation in the bedrooms as well as a large media room and expansive laundry.
