The Duke will be 15-storey building of 125 apartments on Vulture Street, overlooking The Gabba, one of Queensland’s most famous sporting grounds. Due to suburb boundaries, it is considered a Kangaroo Point project rather than Wooloongabba which it borders.
Despite having a Kangaroo Point address, prices are competitive. Prices start from $385,000 for one bed, and the most expensive being $830,000 for three beds. One and two bedroom apartments come with one underground parking space, while three bedroom apartments have two parking spaces. Guest parking will most likely be off-street, which can be an issue due to traffic and Vulture Street being a one-way street.
It really is better to compare The Duke to Woolloongabba projects rather than the waterfront Kangaroo Point projects which are further away from the The Duke. Linton would be the closest competition, followed by The Wellington, both of which are also on the border of Woolloongabba.
The Duke has been designed with two rooftop terraces, one for residents to watch a game of cricket from home if they wish to, and the other faces out to the CBD. The terraces will be landscaped with a glass fencing, along with a rooftop pool and BBQ area that looks out toward the CBD.
Kitchens and bathrooms will have stone benchtops and splashbacks, with grey cabinetry. Floors will be timber in the living spaces, and floor-to-ceiling windows will let in as much natural light as possible, while providing suburban or city views.
Overall The Duke is targeted at Investors primarily, given the price point, size of the apartments and its location.
Schools are also within walking distance, as is the bus interchange that goes straight to the Myer Centre via South Brisbane.
The Goodwill Bridge is only a short walk along Vulture street, and leads directly into QUT, while the Citycat nearby travels up and down the Brisbane River, providing access to most of Brisbane City.
The display suite for The Duke has been moved around to Wellington Rd, a short drive away from the actual site of The Duke. The new Wellington Rd location is a development site itself so don’t be confused.
It has a small sample kitchen and bathroom in the display so it is definitely worth a visit before you buy so you can check out the overall quality and stylistic approach that they are aiming for.
