In inner north Brisbane, just 5km from the city, the Newmarket Brickworks site is set to undergo development as residential living in the ever illustrious and popular town of Alderley. This new infill development comes as Brisbane’s City Council introduces new town planning guidelines.
The plan features 64 apartments plus a boutique collection of 25 townhouses along with a variety of yoga lawns, dog parks and a veggie garden for local residents. Much like other developments happening onward of 2021, wide open spaces are a must, all including amenities for residents. What sets this development apart from others is the private open space provision, which is approximately 20 times more than any other medium density projects within the past 5 years for creation. As well as all of this Brickworks Park will feature a pool, entertaining pavilion, resident gym and art workshops/spaces.
Infill projects such as this have extreme market value due to their location, and master planning to incorporate them into the surrounding suburbia. Alderley, one of Brisbane’s leading suburbs in popularity is expected to be “very attractive”, drawing a flight of interstate buyers as restrictions continue to ease. The demand for apartment projects, more noticeably in the middle circle of the city, is ever growing with the need over powering the availability of housing.
The project will also be taking note of the area’s local heritage-listed landmarks, making the 50-metre chimney stack the focal point for the new neighbourhood. Director John Bush of CDL’s residential says “Our vision has been to create a neighbourhood that will blend seamlessly with the surrounding residential area, bringing a sophisticated modern touch while honouring the site’s past.” This structure has been a landmark for over 108 years for its residents and will continue to be a visual beacon becoming the centrepiece to the Brickworks Park.
Brickworks park is prime property for those wanting to live or invest closer to Brisbane’s CBD whilst living in comfort and style. It’s key to keep your eye out for these infills as the city transforms its suburbs one development at a time.
