The trend across the whole of Australia at the moment is for big apartments, as property buyers accept the future of a more work-from-home focused lifestyle. 

And Dibcorp's latest Newstead apartment development, Bide, is making sure it gives as much to its residents as it can without them leaving the Longland Street building.

Bide, a verb meaning to dwell or reside, comprises 89 apartments across the building, with demand high for the three-bedroom apartment, priced from $950,000. Not bad given the 121 sqm floorplate, the location - just three kilometres from the Brisbane CBD, dress circle address, and the overall designs and landscaping by Twohill & James, Wiltshire Stevens Architecture and Lat27.

The trio have made the building as liveable as possible, with buyers having the ability to customise the apartments, which are slated for completion in early 2023. There's plenty of other upgrade options, from floor and curtains to kitchen fittings and appliances.

They will bring the outside in, with floor-to-ceiling glazing opening to balconies with lush landscaping.

The resident amenity is also focused around lifestyle and wellbeing. There's a 600 sqm lush garden, known as Bide Gardens, which will feature private cabanas and barbecue facilities.

"Bide embodies the belief that the spaces we inhabit are essential to a balanced life. It centres around the wellness of the occupier and how the space can compliment their lives," Dibcorp suggest.

"Recent times have seen the world adapt to a new way of life. The effects of this new normality have transcended into our personal lives, our work, and the economy at large.

"One market that has greatly benefited from this change is the Brisbane property market. As investors from around the nation turn their eyes up north, Brisbane is now being recognised for what it is; a seemingly undervalued, and historically overlooked market."
