On top of this, Shirley Street, which Quattro is located on, is a cul de sac. This means that traffic noise and use is greatly reduced, even if there is a kindergarten at the end of the street. There are a number of high schools within five minutes of the apartments — some are walking distance — making them perhaps best suited for buyers who have older children.

Quattro is a new apartment project located on Shirley Street, in Indooroopilly. With two and three-bedroom options available, the apartments are currently under construction, making them ideal for buyers who would like to move in soon. With a focus on livability, the apartments have high-quality inclusions like Miele appliances and reconstituted stone benchtops, which shows that they were made to last through whatever is thrown at them.
Quattro sits on a slightly elevated street, which is great as it will allow the apartments to catch more breezes and let residents enjoy the Queensland weather. The location of the apartments, which we talk about further below, is great for buyers who want to have a number of amenities like shops, recreational activities and public transport close on hand.
Located at 4 Shirley Street, Indooroopilly, Quattro sits just around the corner from Moggill Road, and literally only a minute from the massive Westfield Indooroopilly Shopping Centre. The apartments may receive some noise from the busy main road nearby, but not too much given that there is a buffer of some houses. The proximity to a main road is also good because it means that residents have access to a number of bus stops, like the five within two to three minutes walk. The Indooroopilly Train Station is five minutes drive away. With Moggill Road so close, the city is just 20 minutes drive away, which is great for residents who drive to work.
Shirley Street is a cul de sac, with Indooroopilly Kindergarten located at the end, so while it can get a little busy during pick up and drop off hours, it’s mostly quiet. This bodes well for residents who have small children or who like their peace and quiet.
As we mentioned, the apartments are close to the Westfield Indooroopilly Shopping Centre. With over 360 shops, cafes and restaurants throughout — including a cinema, David Jones and Woolworths, to name just a few — this will undoubtedly be the one-stop-shop for residents, given how convenient it is to access. Of course, this isn’t the only place for residents to access amenities: there are a number of shops and restaurants around, although you may need to drive to some due to the way overpasses and the roads in the area are set up.
In terms of schooling facilities, there are a number in the area. Within five minutes drive, residents will find Indooroopilly State High School, whilst Indooroopilly State School sits just down Moggil Road, in walking distance (five minutes walk). Both schools are well known for their strong academic and STEM programs, and are co-educational. There is also the Holy Family Primary School, Brigidine College (an all-girls high school), Brisbane Boys College (an all-boys school better known as BBC), St Peters Lutheran College (a co-educational school from Prep to Year 12), and the Queensland Academy for Science, Mathematics and Technology. As you can see, there is something to suit every type of child and learner in the area.
The Indooroopilly Police Station is three minutes away, which may be great for some residents peace of mind, and the closest hospital is Westside Private Hospital (which residents can reach in six minutes).
All of the residents at Quattro will have access to the rooftop terrace area, which has a fire pit and seating and entertaining areas. There will also be bike storage in the car park, for those residents who enjoy the hobby or use it as their main form of transport.
All of the apartments at Quattro have been designed so that residents can live their lives in them: the high-quality finishes are made to last through whatever is thrown at them, and look good while doing so. The apartments have all been designed to allow cross-flow breezes through, which is great for residents power bills as it means they don’t always need to keep the air-conditioning on. What the floor plans won’t tell you though, is that the apartments have extra-high ceilings (at 2.7 meters), which is great for residents who enjoy natural light because it will let more of it in.
The kitchens have Miele appliances, along with reconstituted stone benchtops and splashbacks. This space is made to be functional and look good for a long time, and as such everything is finished in neutrals that won’t show wear and tear easily. This holds true for the rest of the apartments: little inclusions which show they are meant to stand the test of time. The main areas of the apartments are tiled (which is great for cleaning and for keeping them cool during summer), whilst the bedrooms are carpeted.
Quattro apartments will have fully ducted air-conditioning, and ceiling fans in the main areas and master bedroom.
Cross-flow breezes are encouraged by the Quattro apartment designs, with the large open-plan spaces connecting to larger than normal balconies. The apartments sit on a slightly hill, which will also help with this.
The master bedrooms all have walk-in wardrobes and ensuite bathrooms, while the second (and third, if applicable) bathrooms are located close to the second bathroom in the apartment. All of apartments have separate laundry areas, which is fantastic as it gives residents a space to store their laundry that is out of sight (and out of mind!). Open-plan kitchen and living areas in all of the apartments open onto the balconies and courtyards, which, at between 15 and 57 sqm, are larger than average.
One feature we really like at Quattro is the fact that every apartment has a ‘proper’ entry. This means you don’t open up directly into a kitchen or living room, but rather a hallway, which gives residents space to relax when they come home and an area that helps keep the rest of the apartment clean because it is home to shoes/jackets/bags/etc.
Quattro may make a great investment opportunity Not only is the suburb close to St Lucia — which is home to one of the largest universities in Queensland, attracting both students and professionals alike — but Indooroopilly is one of the ‘main’ western suburbs in Brisbane, with a well-known shopping centre and plenty of roads and public transport options bringing residents into the CBD in no time at all.
The rental appraisal for Quattro highlights that the apartments are expected to achieve between $525 — $760 per week, which is much higher than the Indooroopilly average of $450/week. This means that investors can expect a good return on their apartment, especially when considering that most of the apartments are priced around the average mark for the neighbourhood.
The body corporate fees at Quattro will range between $39 and $53 per week, depending on the apartment chosen.
Quattro is the newest Queensland project from Bellevue Queensland, a family-owned and run construction and development business with over 50 years of combined experience by its leaders. They specialize in smaller, boutique projects, with Quattro one of the largest they have done.
