Construction of HG Developments’ 17 level Omega Apartments in the heart of the trendy RNA showgrounds urban renewal precinct in Bowen Hills has finished on schedule.

The $77.5 million Omega Apartments feature 130 apartments consisting of 42 one- bedroom apartments, 10 one-bedrooms plus multi-purpose rooms, 52 two-bedroom apartments and 26 two bedrooms plus a study.

Located at 61 Brookes Street, just 1km from Brisbane’s CBD, the majority of Omega Apartments have panoramic views across the city due to the first four levels being a podium car park.

Omega Apartments is located on the cusp of Fortitude Valley and residents are within walking distance of the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, the vibrant King Street Precinct in the heart of the Brisbane Showgrounds and the café, restaurant, retail and lifestyle destinations of Gasworks Plaza and James Street.

Hutchinson Builders have completed the construction of the 130 premium apartments on schedule for HG Developments.

HG Developments directors Alistair Harvey and Simon Gundelach have developed residential, retail and commercial projects across the east coast of Australia for nearly 20 years.

“Since construction began on the 1450sq m site in February of last year, the build has progressed on schedule,” Director Simon Gundelach said.

“We’ve designed a smart building that includes a self-ventilated podium car park, as opposed to a mechanically ventilated one, in order to significantly reduce our carbon footprint and reduce the body’s corporate’s running and maintenance costs.”

“Onsite amenities comprise expansive recreational areas, including a solar-powered subtropical roof-top sky garden with a horizon-edge pool with skyline views, a gas fire pit and three barbecues. Residents facilities also include a yoga deck, gymnasium and music room.

Boasting a stylish urban character, Omega Apartments’ one and two-bedroom apartments are among the largest on offer in Brisbane’s inner city.

They offer spacious designer living with contemporary finishes, Miele kitchen appliances, timber flooring, ducted and zoned air-conditioning as well as marble splashbacks and rose gold tapwears.

TOTAL Property Group Managing Director and Marketing Manager for Omega Apartments, Adrian Parsons, said the new development has received very strong interest from buyers with over 70 per cent of the apartments sold prior to construction finishing.

Buyers have been quick to snap up these apartments; that are on average 10 per cent larger than most in the inner-city Brisbane area,” he said.

The remaining one and two-bedroom apartments are available in a variety of floorplans designed to offer contemporary living and range in size from 63sqm to 145sqm. They are priced between $401,000 to $694,000.

Omega Apartments is perfectly positioned at 61 Brookes Streetjust 1km from Brisbane’s CBD in the high-demand area of Bowen Hills.

It’s within walking distance of the King Street Precinct, Gasworks Precinct and neighbours Fortitude Valley’s eclectic café and restaurant scene.

Surrounded by childcare providers and some of the finest state and private schools in Brisbane, Omega Apartments is very close to the soon-to-open Inner City North State Secondary College; Brisbane’s first vertical school and the first inner-city high school to open in 50 years.

Omega Apartments is a 12-minute drive from Brisbane Airport and is well serviced by significant transport infrastructure, including the existing Bowen Hills train station and the new Exhibition train station being built as part of the State Government’s $5.4 billion Cross River Rail project.
