The launch of the landmark $232 million Coorparoo Square project on May 16 will change the face of the suburb forever. There will be more than 360 apartments and 6,000 square metres of retail including restaurants, cafes and a 10-screen Dendy Cinemas complex all due for completion by 2017.

If the artist’s impressions are any indication, Coorparoo Square looks to be a spectacular set up and, at only 4.5km from Brisbane CBD, is so close to the city.

Coorparoo Square will occupy an entire block, is located on the corner of Old Cleveland Rd, Cavendish Rd, Harries Rd and Holdsworth St and has close proximity to the PA Hospital, Lady Clento Hospital and Woolloongabba Sports Stadium.

Leading and long-established developers Australand and Honeycombes Property Group are jointly developing the project and already the pre-launch interest is significant.

Honeycombes Property Group Managing Director Peter Honeycombe said, “The local community has been looking forward to the revitalisation of this previously underutilised site, and the extent of the overwhelmingly positive response to date reflects the demand for both new apartments and a dining and entertainment precinct in the area. Coorparoo Square will be a focal point for locals and give an iconic site the breath of fresh air it needs.”

Australand Queensland General Manager Residential, Cameron Leggatt said pre-launch enquiry has been a mix of investors and owner-occupiers seeking an affordable, urban address. “Coorparoo is a great lifestyle area full of large, character houses and people are looking for a home that combines this aspect with low maintenance and convenience,” he said. “Many local residents are looking to downsize but want to retain the advantages of living in Coorparoo such as proximity to key amenities and transport.”

Once you’ve settled into your new community at Coorparoo Square, you’ll realise just how handy everything is. The developers have taken into account the mainstays of modern living and made sure you have easy access to all of them. A mere hop, skip and jump away will be Coles, Woolworths and an array of smaller specialities including Merlo Coffee, an organic butcher and boutique shopping and services.

Aiming for a vibrant and welcoming vibe, the village will have an array of planned and sophisticated laneway retail spaces. Plus cinema chain Dendy Cinemas has signed up as the operator of Coorparoo Square’s theatre complex which will include seven standard screens and three Dendy Premium Lounge screens. The luxury of these will include fully-reclining leather seating and a pre-screening premium dining and bar lounge.

Coorparoo Square will include a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments as well as a limited number of luxury penthouses. Apartments at Coorparoo Square are priced from $339,000 and all apartments have access to ‘Club Coorparoo’ which includes a Tennis Court, 25m lap pool, gym and a private dining on the podium level.In addition to its residential and retail elements, the three-building project will include more than 640 car spaces.

National building company Probuild began demolition work on the site in April, with the project expected to be complete by late 2017.
