The Brisbane apartment market continue to show strength over May, posting 1.1 per cent gains, CoreLogic's monthly Hedonic Home Value Index found.

The rolling quarterly apartment gains are now up to 3.2 per cent, with the median apartment price reaching $411,000.

The media veteran Steve Hunt, who founded the public relations and media strategy firm Media Hunt in 2005, has cast his eye over the Brisbane market and what's happening in the Queensland capital.

Hunt mentioned The Fernery, which has been popular with local owner-occupiers

Urban recently spoke to Colliers residential director Andrew Scriven, who said most of the buyers have come from a couple of kilometre radius.

"There's been overwhelming success since launch in April from the local market, looking to either downsize, invest or secure something for the children," Scriven said.

"Locals have really embraced the project. They haven’t really had that offering ever."

The project by the Townsville-based Honeycombes, in partnership with their financier MaxCap, will comprise the 82 apartment block The Fernery, as well as a 12,000 sqm retail centre set next to the Ferny Grove train station.
