Aston Residences provides buyers with an unprecedented level of luxury coupled with the convenient lifestyle that comes with the West End location. Just two kilometres from Brisbane City, the advantage of the Aston Residences location extends beyond a convenient commute. Residents will enjoy being walking distance to all the best restaurants, cafes, bars and entertainment venues peppered throughout South Brisbane and West End. Bank Street sits right in the heart of West End, one of Brisbane’s most exciting inner-city suburbs and residents will be surrounded by an endless stream of activities and things to do right on your doorstep. These include local entertainment acts community events and markets. It also falls within the Brisbane State School catchment zone which will appeal to families with teenagers.
There are several unique aspects of the new townhouses at Aston Residences including the completely customisable interior design.

All six residences are situated over three levels with four bedrooms plus the option to include a wine cellar or media room.
As mentioned, Aston Residences is located at 15 Bank Street, West End. The townhomes sit just off Mollison Street, just 100 metres as the crow flies to the west of the large West Village development by Sekisui House. Adjacent to Aston Residences sits several two-storey Queenslander residential properties, with Aston Residences being one of only two multi-level developments in the street (the other being Onyx apartment, which was completed in 2016). On the opposite side of Bank Street, there are mainly small commercial buildings and offices, including a Kennards Storage World (so moving in and getting those boxes unpacked and organised is as easy as just walking across the road!). The commercial buildings — as well as the residential buildings adjacent to Aston Residences — all have off-street parking. As a result of this, Bank Street is one of the easiest and most accessible streets in West End for street parking, which is ideal for those who like to entertain and have guests over.
Bank Street runs parallel to the popular Montague Road to the west and Boundary Street to the east. Your morning coffee is just an easy walk away at Cheeky Bean Espresso Bar, The Coffee Roaster or Three Monkey’s Coffee & Tea House. Looking to switch up your exercise routine and avoid a traditional gym? Bend + Fly and Urban Climb are both located less than 5-minutes walk away on Montague Road. The nearby intersection between Mollison Street and Boundary Street provides seemingly endless dining options with everything from vegan restaurant FALALALAH to the ever-popular Little Greek Taverna. The townhouses are also located just 600 metres away from The Davies Park Markets, which provides residents with the best and freshest in local produce, meat, seafood and artisan giftwares — open from 6am until 2pm every Saturday.

Aston Residences is also only 15-minutes walk to the illustrious South Bank precinct, known as the cultural hub of Brisbane. South Bank is home to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) and the stunning South Bank Parklands, as well as Queensland Museum, Art Gallery and State Library.
The Bank Street location means residents will be able to enjoy the benefits of a quiet street, while the proximity to Montague Road and Boundary Street means getting in an out of the inner-south side to the Gold Coast, northside suburbs or the airport is quick and easy.
For those with children, West End State School is located just at the end of Bank Street on Hardgrave Road, just 300 metres from the new development. Directly across the road from the primary school is a C&K Community Kindergarten, making morning drop-offs as easy as possible. Aston Residences sits within the catchment area for the prestigious Brisbane State High School, meaning high-school-aged students will have the opportunity to attend this well-renowned school.
The townhomes at Aston Residences all have an expansive style with open living spaces and generous storage throughout. The exterior of the residences is crafted with style and elegance in mind. Aston Residences feel more like private retreats than traditional townhouses with plentiful living, entertaining and resting spaces. All homes are spaced across three levels and feature four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a double garage. High ceilings, large windows and LED down-lights make the homes open and light-filled at all times of the day. The living spaces feature a statement atrium and open stairwell, which creates a beautiful aesthetic. Each residence has a beautifully landscaped terrace garden which faces the kitchen and living spaces. The private terrace gardens are ideal for outdoor living, with hardwood underfoot and partially-transparent roofing to protect you from the elements, while still letting sunlight filter through. The building is surrounded by landscaped gardens and mature trees, providing privacy for every residence. As mentioned, one of the main draw-cards that puts Aston Residences ahead of the pack is each luxury home features a Private Internal lift, which is fantastic for downsizers or mature professionals looking to the future. Each residence also has fully ducted air-conditioning, so no ugly condensers are taking up space on the balconies.
Each residence at Aston is meticulously crafted using high-quality materials with a focus on livability, environmentalism and long-lasting materials. Throughout the living spaces, you will find large statement tiles underfoot, whereas the bedrooms are finished with quality wool carpets to keep them cosy. One of the key features of Aston Residences is the lighting. Throughout the townhomes, LED lighting is integrated into the joinery of the interior elements which gives the residences an additional sophisticated touch.
Inside each townhome, you will find a separate wine cellar as well as a media room with an integrated projector, creating the perfect home theatre. The large designer kitchens feature butlers pantries, Miele appliances as well as an integrated Fisher and Paykel fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The main bedroom has a large walk-in robe, the ensuites feature double vanities and the main bathroom has a statement freestanding bath to add a whole new level of luxury.
As construction has not yet commenced on Aston Residences, the floor plans for the remaining three apartments can still be customised to suit the buyer. To enquire about the customisation options for the floor plans, please fill in the form below.
Aston Residences appeals primarily to owner-occupiers. However, the ideal location in the heart of West End and luxury finishes make this project attractive to investors as well. Located only two kilometres to the city and walking distance to the lifestyle and cultural hubs of West End and South Bank, this location would appeal to mature professionals as well as downsizers who still want to be in the centre of the action.
