Top 4 off-the-plan apartments in the Brisbane CBD

Are you considering a move into the Brisbane CBD? With rising traffic and commute times, for those of us who work in the city it is becoming an increasingly compelling option. Of course the evolution of Brisbane itself into a genuine world class city also helps.

So if you are ready to make the move, and love the idea of a brand new apartment, this list is for you. We have collated the best of best – the top 4 inner city apartments you can buy for a Brisbane CBD address.

443 Queen St

443 Queen St is one of the stand-out new projects in Brisbane’s CBD. It is the preeminent inner city residential building since Riparian Plaza was completed over a decade ago, and we expect it to gain an iconic reputation for quality and location like Riparian Plaza when it is complete. Currently under construction, this project offers buyers one, two, three and four-bedroom ‘house-sized’ apartments, all overlooking the CBD and the Brisbane River. The eco-friendly building – which has a breathable facade, helping to reduce energy consumption by up to 60%, among other environmentally-friendly features – is the first of its kind in Queensland. Prices start from $730,000.

Brisbane Skytower

Brisbane Skytower is one of the largest buildings in the city, with over 3,000 residents expected to live in it once complete. It’s almost 300 metres tall, with construction almost fully complete, making this building only count as ‘off-the-plan’ for the next few months. There are one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments available, with something to suit every type of buyer. The apartments are priced from $492,000, making them accessible to first home buyers, young professionals, families and downsizers alike.

If you are chasing simply amazing views that even reach the Gold Coast (yes, you can see Q1 on a clear day) then Brisbane Skytower is for you.

Mary Lane

Sitting over The Westin Hotel, Mary Lane offers buyers the chance to live above the hotel and access all of the services offered by it — all from the comfort of their own apartment. A unique offering in the Brisbane market, these apartments are ready to move into, with construction now complete. Residents have access to the 37th floor Rooftop retreat, which has a full cardio gym, an infinity pool, two BBQ areas, and a glass-veiled pavilion. Two and three-bedroom apartments are available, priced from $910,000.

There are one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments available, with prices ranging from $550,000 to $6,900,000.
