THE wraps have finally been taken off the stunning residences at Point View in Wynnum giving lifestyle buyers the best that Brisbane’s bayside has to offer.
Developer DDS Property Trust always planned to create something special with its largest residential project to date, so it decided to hold off selling any of the 47 apartments off-the-plan.
The unusual marketing approach taken by the developer because it wanted its target owner-occupier market to be able to experience the finished product and its magnificent coastal outlook.
Marketing agent Chris Jones, of Savills, said the reasoning was that Point View’s spacious, open and contemporary residences had to be seen to be appreciated.
“The developer set out to create premium lifestyle apartments that embrace this spectacular bayside location and incredible views,” Mr Jones said.
“You can’t really grasp the panoramic bay and island views and the atmosphere of airy and breezy interiors until you’re in an apartment.
“Off-the-plan sales work better for investors rather than owner occupiers who want to see and feel the living spaces for themselves.
“DDS realised that and held off on marketing Point View until prospective buyers could see for themselves the modern coastal lifestyle that’s on offer here.”
The strategy has already netted four sales at Point View, which is just 20km from Brisbane’s CBD.
“Wynnum has undergone significant transformation over the past decade and Point View is playing its part in this,” said Mr Jones.
“The gentrification of this once blue collar suburb is attracting quality developments and lifestyle buyers who are drawn to the natural beauty of the bayside location and the many amenities it has to offer, including cafes and public parks.”
Located just metres from the foreshore, Point View overlooks Greene Park and Wynnum Creek, and is just minutes from shops, cafes, restaurants and Wynnum North Train Station.
Mr Jones said the insightful design of award-winning Brisbane architect Nick Muslin had created low maintenance contemporary apartments that made the most of Point View’s
breezy bayside location.
“They have a flow-through apartment design that we don’t see very often,” he said.
“The residences can be opened up to the cooling sea breezes, allowing residents to embrace the location and to reduce their reliance on air-conditioning in the warmer months.
“It’s perfect for those who are seeking a coastal lifestyle while still being just 14km from Brisbane’s CBD.
“And the bonus for Point View buyers is that the apartments are complete and ready to be moved into.”
Most Point View apartments boast water views, while all have high ceilings, spacious open-plan tiled living areas flowing into a large private terrace, luxurious fixtures, fittings and cabinetry, air-conditioning and secure basement parking.
All apartments have video intercom security and there is lift access to all floors.
Residents have access to a private swimming pool and an entertainment courtyard.
Point View’s one-bedroom apartments are priced from $395,000 while the two-bedroom residences start at $515,000.
