There are just two three bedroom residences remaining priced from $1.06 million, three premium three bedroom apartments from $1,835,000 and three sub penthouses which start from $3.06 million.

Rachel Huston, associate director at Colliers Residential, says that buyers are almost exclusively local downsizers, either living currently in the area or with a past connection to it via family or the University of Queensland.

Construction is expected to commence, which will see the onsite sales display close.
