It was 2020 when longstanding Brisbane developer Pikos Group snapped up one of the best sites in Brisbane for its next residential project.

The 2,230 sqm site, atop the Kangaroo Point cliffs on the corner of River Terrace and Main Street, was picked up from international hotels group Banyan Tree.

Pikos went about making amends to what was already proposed. They brought in Conrad Gargett to create two 13-level buildings joined by a sky bridge.

Skye Residences will home just 68 luxury apartments which have been designed to take in views of the city skyline and the Brisbane River.

The site is unrepeatable because of its corner position at the top of River Terrace. Nothing can be built in front of it, given its prime spot opposite Kangaroo Point Cliffs Park, while anything built next door or further down the street will unlikely impact any view lines looking down the river.

No building can get closer to the steps down to Kangaroo Point Cliffs Park than Skye Residences. The easy access opens up the opportunity for future residents to be less than a minute from a walk along The Cliffs Boardwalk or a picnic on the grass looking across the river to the Botanic Gardens.

A short bus ride away is Captain Burke Park, which too offers picturesque views of the Brisbane River and the iconic Story Bridge.

Also across the road from Skye is the popular Italian restaurant Joey's. That serves morning coffees all the way through to fine dining at night, with a terrace that takes in the best views in Kangaroo Point.

The nearby Dockside precinct and the vibrant South Bank cultural precinct also offer a variety of cafes, restaurants, and boutique stores, expanding the choices for where to relax and enjoy a meal with family and friends.

Skye Residences is perfectly positioned for those who value a hassle-free commute, with easy access to public transport options, including several bus stops along Main Street. The Holman Street Ferry Terminal is just over a kilometre away from the project, offering a more scenic commute than the norm.

Skye Residences may also suit the family buyer, given the size of the apartments, the 1,000 sqm rooftop amenity in the form of an infinity pool and leisure precinct, and the project's proximity to schools. 

St. Joseph's Primary School, one of the oldest and highest ranked Catholic Primary Schools in the state, is 700 metres away, while Brisbane State High School, Anglican Church Grammar School, St. Laurence's College and Shafston International College are all nearby.

Last month Pikos hit a major milestone in the construction progress of Skye Residences. Builder Tomkins Commercial completed the excavation of the basement, dug out to home 165 resident vehicles.
