Living by the water is something us Brisbanites have the privilege to do — whether it’s by the beach, by the bay or by the river. Life in this River City of ours really does revolve around the water, and it’s not just because of the seemingly endless summer weather. Residing by the waterside gives even the most inner-city abode the perception of space as well as those sought-after breezes and views. Much more than just the ‘status-symbol’ of being able to afford property on the waterfront, it’s about cultivating the “ideal” Queensland lifestyle, and waterfront living is one way to do that.
In Brisbane, there are several new off-the-plan developments for sale that are perched right on the water, providing buyers with the chance to snap up an apartment that is bound to change the face of Brisbane. From the city to the coast, here are the top 5 waterfront properties you can buy today in Brisbane.
Located directly on the banks of the Brisbane River, right in the heart of the city, 443 Queen Street will bring a new level of luxury to the riverfront in Brisbane.
