Five of Australia’s finest branded residential projects

Five of Australia’s finest branded residential projects

Queen's Wharf Residences Brisbane

Branded residential real estate continues to provide certainty in uncertain times. With property markets around the world increasingly vulnerable to softening valuations and demand given government restrictions put in place to deal with the coronavirus outbreak, branded residential could emerge as a top performing sector.

The Australian Government recently announced changes to the Foreign Investment Review Board regime in response to the rapidly evolving situation, meaning foreign buyers can now expect delays of up to 6 months for applications to be processed.

Despite the delays, branded residences typically deliver in terms of fundamentals, ticking the boxes in terms of blue-chip location, favourable supply and demand balance, A-grade amenities and re-sale value premiums and so should be well positioned to maintain and increase in value over time.

This is obviously in addition to the incredible lifestyle benefits branded residential offers to owners. With that in mind, here are five of the finest branded residential developments currently available for sale in Australia.

Queens Wharf Residences, Brisbane

Queen's Wharf Residences Brisbane

The residences are part of Brisbane’s $A3.6 billion Queen’s Wharf Development, a master planned precinct featuring four new luxury hotels, 50 restaurants and bars, a new bridge across the river and 2000 new apartments that is set to become Brisbane’s signature landmark and the largest integrated resort development in Australia.

Centred around a large collection of beautifully restored heritage buildings, these exclusive residences have been designed by principal architects Cottee Parker so that every apartment can make the most of stunning city, Botanic Garden or river views.

Crown Residences at One Barangaroo, Sydney

Apartments within the Wilkinson Eyre-designed tower will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and jaw-dropping views of Sydney Harbour and the Opera House, while bespoke interior layouts will be crafted by New York design firm, Meyer Davis.
