After a decade overseas Paul Makepeace is ready to call Brisbane home again.
Mr Makepeace bought a two-bedroom apartment in the Gallery House River Collection at riverside Hamilton.
He is among the lucky residents who have begun moving into the second stage of Brookfield Residential Properties’ luxury apartment project, Gallery House.
The two-stage development comprises 315 premium apartments and penthouses, and occupies an absolute waterfront position with uninterrupted views of the Brisbane River and city skyline. Mr Makepeace’s prerequisites were to be close to his daughters and somewhere that felt like a community.
“In Gallery House I found the perfect balance of location and connectivity,” he said.
“After 10 years abroad, I wanted to live somewhere that provided me with something I’ve been missing for a while now – a sense of community.
“The location next to Portside Wharf and the building’s well-designed communal areas make it feel more like a neighbourhood than an apartment development.”
Gallery House forms part of the $5 billion Northshore Hamilton precinct, a 304ha development that is one of the largest urban renewal projects in Queensland.
Brookfield Residential Properties is the most active developer in Northshore Hamilton having already delivered six apartment buildings as part of the Portside Wharf precinct.
Brookfield’s managing director Lee Butterworth said buyers were mostly locals looking for a waterfront property without the maintenance, but with the benefits of direct access to retail, restaurants and recreation.
