Imagine, swimming in a pool suspended between two towers, cocktail in hand, a feast on the Barbie, and enjoying the sweeping views of Brisbane City and its surrounds.
This will become a reality for those who move into the proposed Florence development located on Flora Street at Greenslopes, just one block away from Stones Corner. Sales are launching in late April with construction expected to commence in June 2016 and complete in September 2017.
Developed by Blue Sky Private Real Estate and designed by AG-Architects, the development features two towers, housing 107 apartments. 14 one bedroom, 85 two bedroom and 8 three bedroom apartments will be on offer.
A roof top terrace, with a swimming pool and deck bridging the terraces together, will top the towers. The total site area is 2,428 sqm, with total floor area to be developed coming in at 9,595 sqm.
Residents will also enjoy other features such as a cinema, landscaped gardens, bicycle storage, yoga lounge and outdoor kitchen and lounge facilities.
Within walking distance to Buranda busway and train station, Hanlon Park and driving distance the PA hospital, Greenslopes Private Hospital, M3 Motorway, City, West End and Fortitude Valley, the development offers a much sort after lifestyle of conveniences and leisure, perfect for young professionals and students alike.
Edan Norris, Development Manager at Blue Sky Private Real Estate says, “The sky pool was conceived as a distinctive means to bridge and integrate the two residential towers, offering the residents the luxury of spectacular city views whilst swimming laps.
“We saw this development as an opportunity to answer the needs of a generation looking to downsize. They are moving away from the house and land, preferring to focus on their lifestyle and locality.
We have invested a lot of energy with our architect, interior designer and landscape architect to offer this lifestyle.
Featuring a cinema room, yoga garden, intimate communal outdoor dining spaces and the lap pool overlooking the city; these are the new living spaces that replace the backyard without all the associated upkeep.”
Florence is Blue Sky Private Real Estates third project in the Stones Corner precinct with Cedar (61 apartments on Regina St) and Stone & Co (53 apartments on Logan Rd) under construction and due to complete in August and October 2016 respectively.
Demolition works on the Florence site began in early April.
