Highpoint apartments are an upcoming development that is all about the bayside living.
When people think of Brisbane, they think of it as an inland river city without beaches or sea views. However, Brisbane has a few suburbs that are right on the coast. Wynnum is one of them and for the first time in a while apartments are popping up left, right and centre – many of them with great ocean views.
Highpoint is developed and built by Niclin Group. The award-winning company has delivered successful residential projects and considers itself to be “young, vibrant and committed to delivering the project with the highest standards”. Some of the company’s current projects are in the Brisbane CBD and the suburbs of Corinda, Mt Gravatt, Nundah and Manly.
Altogether, there are 16 two-bedroom apartments and eight three-bedroom apartments.
Reverse cycle split system air conditioning is installed in all bedrooms and living areas. There are also ceiling fans in all bedrooms, living areas and balconies to provide extra comfort. Every apartment has built-in robes in all bedrooms. Some two-bedroom apartments have a study. Barbecue gas points are provided on all balconies, which also have glazed balustrades and tiled flooring.
There id a lobby entry to Highpoint, with secure swipe card access and an intercom system.
The two-bedroom apartments have one parking space and the three-bedroom apartments have two car spaces.
Prices for Highpoint start at $455,000 for a two-bedroom apartment and go up to $875,000 for a three-bedroom apartment.
Construction is complete at Highpoint.
