Construction on Morningside Rise is now complete and these townhouses are ready to move into now.
Morningside Rise is a smaller townhouse development located just off Wynnum Road. Made up of only seven three-bedroom townhouses, Morningside Rise townhouses are located in an ideal area with great public transport connectivity as well as several facilities and amenities close by. Each residence has a fully-landscaped courtyard which is complete with a patio for entertaining and mature shrubs for privacy. The open-plan living, dining and kitchen area opens out onto the courtyard, creating a seamless flow between the living spaces and keeping the home light and airy. These townhouses also have fully-ducted air conditioning throughout. This is accompanied by ceiling fans in the living spaces and bedrooms to provide cooling and airflow without having to turn on the aircon, allowing residents to keep their electricity bills and environmental impact low while still being comfortable during summer. All bedrooms are located upstairs which provides great separation between the living spaces and resting spaces which is ideal for families. All bedrooms are quite large with an oversized master bedroom which features a walk-in wardrobe.
Only three of the seven townhouses remain for sale after four sold in January 2020.
Located at 24 Moore Street, Morningside, Morningside Rise sits just off Wynnum Road. Less than 100 metres from several stores, restaurants and health facilities, Morningside Rise is in a great location for those who want these amenities at their fingertips. It is worth noting that Morningside Rise backs onto a train line, however, the townhouses have been acoustically treated which should minimise noise impact. The proximity to Wynnum Road means travelling to the city, airport or highways is a breeze. Morningside Rise sits approximately 15-minutes drive to the city, however, it is worth keeping in mind that both the Lytton Road route and Vulture Street East route into the city can get quite congested during peak hour. For those who’d prefer to use public transport, Morningside Train Station is a 10-minute walk away from the new townhouse development. The train journey from Morningside to Central Station takes 22 minutes, with a train leaving every 15-minutes. Another convenient public transport option is the CityCat ferry. The closest ferry terminal is Norman Park, just 4-minutes drive from Morningside Rise. The ferry routes mean the beautiful New Farm area is just a short 5-minute journey away. The Morningside area is also ideal for FIFO workers or regular travellers as the airport is only 17 minutes drive from the townhomes.
Just down the road residents will find the Morningside Central Shopping Centre, which is home to a Coles and Woolworths, along with other amenities like a NAB, Snap Fitness, and a sushi store (to name just a few). In the opposite direction, residents will find a number of restaurants like Nobunaga Yakitori Japanese, Indian Brothers Morningside, and Wing Fix (considered the best American food joint in the area).
For peace of mind, there are many facilities close by that will reassure residents. The Morningside Police Station is two minutes drive away, while the Queensland SES Easter Group Headquarters are three minutes down the road. There are five different GP’s and doctors within 5-minutes drive, with almost all of them within walking distance. There are also three pharmacies within walking distance, all located close to the doctor’s surgeries. Four minutes down the road residents will find Brisbane Sports and Exercise Medicine Specialists, which is always good to have on hand if you or your family live active lifestyles.
There are a number of well-renowned schools in the Morningside area which makes this suburb popular with families. For primary-school-aged students, the closest schools are Cannon Hill State School and Morningside State School; both are 3-minutes drive away. For high-school-aged students, Morningside Rise falls within the catchment area for Balmoral State High School. If you’re searching for a private boys school, Anglican Church Grammar School — known colloquially as Churchie — is also just 7 minutes away in East Brisbane.
Each of the townhomes at Morningside Rise is spaced over two levels with three spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms (plus a powder room) and a double garage. While four of the townhouses have already sold, the three townhouses remaining are priced from $645,000. The project has benefited from the fact that fewer townhouses have been built within the lot which has allowed the developer to design bigger, more high-quality homes in the space. This is evident in the fact that they are slightly larger than normal for the area (apparent in the rather spacious open-plan living and dining areas) along with the fact that higher quality finishes are used throughout the project. The open-plan living and dining area downstairs opens onto the backyard courtyard. Downstairs, you’ll also find an optional media room or study space, ideal for those who work from home. While not an expansive space — it is a courtyard, after all — there is plenty of room to entertain friends and family and enjoy the outdoors.
All of the townhouses at Morningside Rise are finished to a high quality. The kitchens feature mirrored splashbacks along with reconstituted stone benchtops. When you include the extra storage in this space, the kitchen becomes a focal point in the downstairs area. The neutral black, white and silver colour scheme helps them to stand out, while still helping the space retain a modern, sophisticated look. The kitchen, dining and living space are all finished with tiles underfoot.
The bedrooms upstairs retain the modern design. Each bedroom is designed so that buyers can reduce the amount of noise that comes in from other residents in the house — carpeted floors help with this as well — which is great for those who have or are planning to have children. The master bedroom is significantly larger than the other bedrooms and features a walk-in wardrobe. The bathrooms all feature floor-to-ceiling tiles as well as a large bath in the main bathroom.

Morningside is quickly becoming a hotspot in the eastern suburbs of Brisbane due to its great connectivity and its proximity to the Brisbane CBD. Houses and townhouses are renting for approximately $525 per week, which suggests property owners could potentially earn a 3.51% increase in gross rental yield. As most residents in the suburb are between 20 and 40 years of age, investors will be looking to target young professionals and families.
The body corporate fees for Morningside Rise will be $29.92 per week or $1,555.84 per year. This is slightly less than average for the Morningside area.
