Atlas South Brisbane is a new apartment project sitting inside one of the best suburbs for lovers of the arts, good food, and those who enjoy having great lifestyle amenities close by. The one, two and three-bedroom apartments of the project are ideal for professionals, first home buyers and investors, and there is a good mix of all of these in Stage One of the project. Stage Two, which was released last month to the market, is exclusively made up of one and two-bedroom apartments, and all of these include features which make them ideal for enjoying Brisbane year-round.
The location of Atlas is something that has drawn most buyers in. A block away from Southbank and the Brisbane Convention Centre, Atlas gives residents the ability to access almost everything in the city in less than 20 minutes. The Brisbane CBD is just over one kilometre away, and you can take the CityCat across the Brisbane River to the Howard Street Wharves precinct in less than 10 minutes. There are also a number of events that are run throughout the year close to Atlas, including a large amount of Brisbane Festival events (hello, Spiegeltent! If you haven’t been to see something in this, you’re missing out), the annual Night Noodle Markets, and the weekly Southbank markets, to name just a few.
Atlas South Brisbane is a two-stage apartment project located in South Brisbane. The 93 apartments are spread across two buildings, with one, two and three-bedroom apartments available, although Stage Two of Atlas — which was launched last month — only includes one and two-bedroom apartments. Stage One of the project has 15 storeys, and is connected to the 13-storey Stage Two via their shared carpark and the communal level. Apartments can range in size from 56 — 93 sqm, which is about average for the South Brisbane area. The apartments have views towards the Brisbane Convention Centre and then further towards the Brisbane CBD. Atlas is ideal for those who want to live close to everything they could need in the city, due to its proximity to not only the Southbank strip or the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC), but also public transport options, restaurants, and the CBD itself.
One-bedroom, one-bathroom apartments are priced from $395,000 to $430,000. Two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments start from $550,000, and the remaining three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments in Stage One start from $650,000. With the three-bedroom apartments now all sold, the interest in the project is hard to deny.
All of the apartments have thermally-treated glass, which is a nice inclusion as it will help residents survive summer in a cooler apartment and with lower electricity bills as the air-conditioner won’t have to be run around the clock. You can read more about this below in the ‘Quality and Finishes’ section.
There are a mix of owner-occupiers and investors in both stages of Atlas, which is indicative of its location. Professionals and first home buyers are liking the project due to its location, which puts it close to some of the best lifestyle amenities in the Brisbane CBD. Investors are attracted to the project due to the fact that many international visitors like to stay in the thick of the action when they come to Brisbane, and Atlas lets them do just that.
Atlas South Brisbane has completed construction, meaning these apartments are ready to move into as soon as you are ready!
As we mentioned, a stand-out feature of Atlas South Brisbane is its location at 39 Cordelia Street and 52 Manning Street, South Brisbane. Having separete entrances to the different buildings gives an added sense of privacy and increases ease of access.
South Brisbane offers a myriad of beautiful restaurants and bars and the area is undeniably the cultural hub of Brisbane with QPAC and the Convention Centre both located in the suburb. Streets Beach, the only inner-city beach, is located in Southbank and is perfect for a weekend dip or picnic. Of course, that’s not everything in the surrounding area, you’ll also find an IGA around the corner, a number of bars and restaurants, and a Gelato Messina for those late-night cravings.
Owners are also close to some of the most well-respected schools in Brisbane. Brisbane State High School — which is well known for having one of the most diverse and well-funded sports programs in Brisbane — is a six minute walk down the road. West End State School, which caters to primary school-aged children, is also less than ten minutes walk away, albeit in the opposite direction. Somerville House, a well-known all-girls private school is about 15 minutes walk from Atlas. If there are buyers considering continuing their education, TAFE also has its main Brisbane campus just past Brisbane State High School, and the Griffith University Southbank Campus is just a little further down the road.
If you need to get to the CBD for work or some retail therapy, you’ll find it’s just over one kilometre away (roughly a 15 minute walk, although this depends on where you are going). Here, residents will have access to Queen Street Mall, a number of the best restaurants in Brisbane, and quite a few city office jobs.

Not up for walking too much? Never fear, there are quite a number of public transport options close to Atlas. This includes the South Brisbane Train Station and several bus stops, although if you want to cross the river in style, there are a number of CityCat pontoons within 10 minutes walk. If you want to drive, you’ll be in the CBD within five minutes (if the traffic is good, of course), and into the Southern suburbs in roughly the same amount of time.

Residents will have access to a pool and spa, gym and sauna, along with a BBQ area; which is fairly standard for apartments in or close to the Brisbane CBD. Given the number of amenities close to the apartment, if there is anything else you need it’s probably only a few hundred metres walk away!
