Lend Lease’s latest residential offering, The Terraces, was released on Saturday 7 February, delivering street-level dimension to the Brisbane Showgrounds redevelopment and highlighting the precinct’s new laneways.
The Terraces are 11 exclusive, one-bedroom, one-bathroom, plus study boutique apartments, accessed from street level on Market Way, which links Costin Street to the King Street, the precinct’s new high street.
The Terraces are part of The Yards development, consisting of 390 apartments across two contemporary towers, North Yard and South Yard, now almost sold out after a late-2014 release.
Lend Lease Brisbane Showgrounds project director Andrew Hay says key street-level features like The Terraces were an important part of the redevelopment of the Showgrounds and would help to activate the precinct year-round.
“We’ve worked with our architects to create The Terraces that bring day-to-day proximity to the edgy retail outlets and bars, local and global foods, artisan providores and the vibrant arts community that is to come,” he says.
“A series of new tree-lined laneways — Carriage Way, Market Way and Crown Street — will become home to boutique retail, hole-in-the-wall cafes and link Costin and Water streets through to the new King Street.”
Priced from $418,500, The Terraces are designed by award-winning architects Hayball and feature exposed matt-black fixtures and fittings throughout the apartment alongside stone and polished concrete bench tops, including a bespoke island kitchen bench. The exterior’s cream brickwork is laced with green vines growing vertically up the façade while landscaped footpath planter-boxes add the softness of greenery.
Residents of The Terraces will have access to The Yards’ 2,500 square metre health and lifestyle podium which includes 20 wellness and entertainment hubs, an outdoor pool, poolside cinema, resident citrus and herb gardens and an alfresco Masterchef-style kitchen.
When complete, King Street will become a living history reflecting 139 years of heritage and will include a 1,200 square metre supermarket, up to 40 cafes, bars, street dining options and fresh food providores.
The new inner city hub adjoins the Fortitude Valley entertainment precinct and is only 1.6 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD. Over the next 10 years, it will become a vibrant new destination where 15,000 people will live, work and play.
