Banc is one of the meagre 3% of apartments in central Brisbane which allows owners to have pets and has gained significant interest from empty nesters with new four-legged friends in tow.

“Many of our recent buyers have been mature professionals whose children have left home, so their pets are an important part of the family unit.”

- John Li, Ideal Property

The building is situated right on the riverfront, giving residents direct access to great walking tracks and neighbouring parks.

The Boatyard’s curved white façade and iconic nautical colour palette pay homage to its site’s former boat workshop Norman R. Wright & Son. The maritime theme is complimented with rustic wooden finishes, horizontal lines, curved parapets and even the kitchen cabinetry was designed to resemble the ‘bulkhead’ in boats.
