A $24 million high-end apartment complex in Victoria's Rockhampton, overlooking the Fitzroy River, has been completed.

Located on Victoria Parade, the 10-storey building named Southbank on Victoria comprises 55 apartments, including one, two and three-bedroom units, said a media release.

Designed by Australasian architecture firm The Buchan Group, the development on a site area of 7,500 sqm represents the ongoing rejuvenation of Rockhampton’s residential unit market.

The Buchan Group was appointed in August 2012 to work with local property developer Griffin Builders to bring provide architectural, interior design and graphics expertise to the project.

The Buchan Group’s senior associate Paul Watson said the waterfront high-rise set a new benchmark for apartment living in Rockhampton.

“The Buchan Group team worked on sophisticated designs that incorporated the bold and linear edges of Southbank on Victoria’s external façade frame, with modern, interior elements highlighting the city’s growing cosmopolitan lifestyle,” he said.

“As the original concept for the block changed over the project life, we reduced the density of the development to maximise efficiency and consciously mirror the ambience and serenity of the nearby waterfront, city views, and parkland settings."

 A majority of the apartments were shown to be sold on the project's website. Among the ones left, the two-bedroom apartments start at $390,000.
