Queens Riverside’s ‘QII’ unveiled

unveiledThe Honourable John Day MLA Minister for Planning joined with Frasers Property to officially launch ‘Qll’, the next stage of Frasers’ ‘Queens Riverside’ development, at a stylish celebration last night.

One hundred and fifty guests joined Frasers Property Australia CEO Guy Pahor at Frasers Suites Perth to officially launch the second residential tower within the mixed-use Queens Riverside precinct, located between the Swan River and Queens Gardens at the riverside edge of the CBD.

QII consists of 107 one, two and three bedroom apartments, designed by Bruce Robinson Architects from an innovative masterplan by Jones Coulter Young. QII opens onto the
beautiful piazza at the heart of Queens Riverside, and enjoys views to Queens Park and the WACA.

Mr. Pahor said he was pleased to be able to release the next stage of Queens Riverside and to do so within the glamorous setting of Fraser Suites Perth – Queens Riverside’s own gold standard hotel.

“Queens Riverside has been received very well indeed, which is testament to its appealing architecture, intelligent community planning and superb location at the riverside edge of the CBD.

“QIII, the first residential tower to be released, is now 90% sold and under construction, which prompted us to bring forward the release of QII.

“I’m delighted to announce that, following an off-market preview, we have already sold 48 of the apartments in QII,” added Mr Pahor.

Planning Minister John Day said the 40-hectare Riverside project would transform the eastern gateway to Perth’s CBD and create a cosmopolitan waterfront community and
attractive tourism destination.

“Riverside is well underway and once complete, will attract $2billion in private sector investment and bring some 7,000 new residents and 6,000 workers to the area,” Mr Day said.

“The Queens Riverside will make a strong contribution to the revitalisation of the eastern gateway and is a valuable part of the Riverside project.”

Queens Riverside is unique in providing an intelligently designed ‘urban quarter’ in which luxurious homes, a five star hotel and a planned ‘Eat Street’ dining precinct share a central piazza. Residents also share a private pool terrace and gymnasium, and can order room service from Fraser Suites Perth.

Exclusive Selling Agent, Wayne Briggs said, “We have seen a great deal of interest already for QlI. It’s interesting that many of our buyers are owner occupiers who are looking for that ‘city living’ experience, with luxurious extras.”

“In short, Queens Riverside adds up to more than the sum of its parts and offers a distinct point of difference for discerning buyers seeking enduring value.

“I’m delighted to say that several buyers have purchased second apartments within the precinct as they see real investment potential at Queens Riverside,” added Mr Briggs.

Nestled between Queens Gardens and the Swan River, within the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority’s ‘Riverside’ redevelopment zone, Queens Riverside is a masterplanned mixed-use precinct set for strong growth, with demand for inner city accommodation increasing sharply.

With close proximity to Trinity College, the soon to be redeveloped WACA, and Gloucester Park, these stylish apartments offer city living at its best in an exciting, evolving part of Perth. Prices range from $420,000 to $1.21 million and offer the potential for solid capital growth as Perth continues to prosper.

The Queens Riverside display apartment is open seven days a week from 12pm to 3pm and is located at 69 Adelaide Terrace (corner Plain St), East Perth.

QII - Affordable Luxury Riverside Living

affordableFrasers Property Australia, developers of the Queens Riverside precinct on Adelaide Terrace in East Perth, is proud to launch the next stage of this exciting development: Qll.

Qll will consist of 107 one, two and three bedroom luxury apartments within the vibrant Queens Riverside residential quarter, at the eastern gateway to Perth’s CBD.

Nestled between Queens Gardens and the Swan River, Queens Riverside is a masterplanned mixed-use precinct set for exponential growth.

With close proximity to Trinity College, the soon to be redeveloped WACA, and Gloucester Park – along with the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority’s exciting new Riverside
development at the Causeway - these luxury apartments offer city living at its best in an exciting, evolving part of Perth.

Residents within Queens Riverside’s three residential buildings will have access to room service and resort-style facilities, including a gym and pool.

Sales agent Wayne Briggs said the apartments offer an exceptional standard of interior detailing and amenity.

"One of the attractions of QII is its position within the wider Queens Riverside development," said Mr Briggs.

“QII isn’t a stand-alone building – it’s part of a thoughtfully designed urban quarter with a beautiful new piazza at its heart”.

Qll is a key part of the innovative Queens Riverside precinct which, when completed, will comprise 450 apartments across three buildings and 236 hotel suites, as well as offering a
host of dining and retail services and strata commercial suites.

The apartments will prove attractive to city business people, families, downsizers and investors, looking to secure a quality property off the plan.

Mr Briggs said Qlll had attracted strong sales from a wide range of local, interstate and international buyers and he was sure that QII would do the same.

“We have seen a great deal of interest already for Qll and, interestingly, we are finding that many of our buyers are owner occupiers who are looking for that ‘city living’ experience.
These buyers are also purchasing second apartments as they see the development as having real investment potential.

“I think the strong sales interest reflects the fact that Qll offers so much more than a generic apartment building. Queens Riverside is a vibrant lifestyle precinct, and the future amenity of this location is something quite special in Perth” Mr Briggs added.

Prices range from $420,000 and offer the potential for solid capital growth as Perth continues to grow and prosper. Qll’s apartments deliver a luxury lifestyle opportunity at a time when the demand for inner city accommodation is increasing sharply.

The Queens Riverside display apartment is open seven days a week from 12pm to 3pm and is located at 69 Adelaide Terrace (corner Plain St), East Perth

Luxury Penthouses in the Heart of Perth

luxury-penthousesFrasers Property, developer of the outstanding Queens Riverside precinct in East Perth, is now selling four luxury penthouse apartments in the five star, 26 storey Qlll residential tower.

With one penthouse already under contract, the four now being offered are priced between $2.725 million and $3.25 million and range from 238sqm to 303sqm inclusive of balcony and outdoor spaces.

Completion of Qlll, the first residential building of the Queens Riverside precinct, is planned for late 2014. With spectacular views, large decks, room service, concierge services, pool, gym, vast master bedroom suites and interiors specified to Frasers’ global standard, the penthouses at Queens Riverside will exceed the highest expectations.

Queens Riverside selling agent, Wayne Briggs, believes that this dynamic community will offer a vibrant lifestyle in an area currently undergoing renewal and growth.

“With the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority’s new Riverside development next to the Causeway, along with the planned renewal and redevelopment of the WACA, the future amenity of this Eastern Gateway to the city is something quite special, and will offer a vibrant new destination for the people of Perth,” he said.

“With close proximity to Trinity College, Queens Gardens, the WACA and Gloucester Park, lucky residents of Queens Riverside can live, work and socialise in this exciting environment that is developing around us,” he added.

The property shares a dramatic porte-cochere entry with neighbouring Fraser Suites Perth, and with water features, sculptures and a sparkling canopy, will make ‘arriving home’ a five star experience.

The concept master plan for Queens Riverside was developed by Jones Coulter Young Architects. The design of QIII is by Perth architect Bruce Robinson.

The 26-storey QIII bilding is architecturally bold with a distinctive identity, designed to embrace views of the Swan River, the CBD, the WACA Ground and the Darling Range.

A family home at QIII

20130406 West_RE_Apartment_Living_feature_-_combined_apartments_JanineLO_RESVersatility is the key to pleasing apartment buyers and Queens Riverside sales agent Janine Thomas has delivered an outstanding result for one of her client families.

Ms Thomas was dealing with a family who were considering one of the four penthouses on offer in the spectacular QIII apartment tower. However the family wanted even more space than the penthouses offered, and they needed four car parking bays for their teenage and adult children.

The family has a large house in the suburbs but their children want to live closer to the city and their universities. They also want a level of independence.

The solution? Move down one level from the penthouses, to level 23 of the 26 storey QIII tower, and buy two adjoining three-bedroom, two bathroom apartments.

The result? A six bedroom, four bathroom residence with stunning views, four parking bays and a purchase price below the penthouse rate!

The combined apartments will be modified to provide internal access and the purchasers earned a discount on the second apartment, making the contract price $2.6-million, compared with the penthouse price range of $2.725-million to $3.25-million.

The combined apartment will offer a total area of 265 sqmcompared with the penthouse offerings, which range from 238sqm to 303sqm inclusive of balcony and outdoor spaces.

“They’ve certainly got the penthouse lifestyle,” said Ms Thomas. “They have very large apartments with stunning balconies offering views over the Swan River to Burswood and beyond from the east facing apartment, and views of Queens Gardens from the north-facing apartment.”

“It’s a great location with terrific views, being on the very edge of the CBD and just a short stroll to the Swan River, Queens Gardens, the WACA and the city itself,” she said.

Frasers Property Australia is developing more than 400 luxury apartments across three buildings on the site of the former bus depot and has already opened Fraser Suites Perth, a 236 room all-suites gold standard serviced residence.

QIII is the first of the three apartment towers and offers spectacular views. The development will deliver a new urban quarter for Perth at a time when demand for inner city accommodation is increasing sharply.

QIII will share a dramatic porte cochere entry with Fraser Suites Perth, complete with water features, sculptures and a sparkling canopy, to make arriving home a five-star experience. QIII apartment buyers will also be offered food and beverage room service from the adjacent Fraser Suites Perth. Ms Thomas said the room service offering was a first in the luxury apartment market in Perth.

“The hospitality offering is central to the precinct’s vibrant character,” she said. Frasers Property Australia has recorded impressive sales for QIII, which is due to be completed in 2014. The adjacent Ql and Qll apartment towers will be released for off-the plan sales in coming months.

The concept master plan for Queens Riverside was by Jones Coulter Young Architects. The design of QIII is by Perth architect Bruce Robinson, who was also responsible for the design of the Raffles redevelopment at Canning Bridge.  

The 26 storey QIII building is architecturally bold with a distinctive identity, designed to embrace views of the Swan River, the CBD, the WACA Ground and the Darling Range.

Strong sales recorded by Queens Riverside

qr-riverside-finalIn something of a contradiction to the present market, Frasers Property Australia has recorded strong sales of its flagship QIII apartments within its prestigious Queens Riverside development in East Perth.

Amid conflicting reports on market sentiment, sales of high quality city apartments remain strong, with particular emphasis on one bedroom and studio apartments that can offer attractive yields to investors.

Sales agent Wayne Briggs said sales at QIII, the first residential stage of Queens Riverside, had passed the 70% mark in September, with 204 of the 267 available apartments sold off the plan, including all but one of the 44 one-bedroom apartments.

15 apartments were sold at QIII in September, priced from $365,000 to $1,579,050; over $11 million in sales for the month. Mr Briggs said the quality of Frasers’ offering at Queens Riverside was a key factor in the success of the project.

“These apartments offer great floor plans, outstanding levels of finish and unprecedented lifestyle services in what will be a great location,” he said. The Queens Riverside development combines 438 residential apartments in three separate buildings with commercial and retail suites, a new dining precinct and Fraser Suites Perth, a 236 room all-suites serviced residences operated under the Frasers Hospitality brand.

“The new Fraser Suites Perth is ready to open next door to Qlll and is offering apartment owners a range of benefits, including room service,” said Mr Briggs.

The QIII apartments share a dramatic porte cochere entry with Fraser Suites Perth, complete with water features, sculptures and a sparkling canopy, to make arriving home a five-star experience. QIII will also have its own Concierge, one of few buildings in Perth with this luxurious service.

The concept master plan for Queens Riverside was by Jones Coulter Young Architects. The design of QIII is by Perth architect Bruce Robinson, who was also responsible for the design of the Raffles re-development at Canning Bridge.

The 26 storey QIII building is architecturally bold with a distinctive identity, designed to embrace views of the Swan River, the CBD, the WACA Ground and the Darling Range.

Perth family praise Queens Riverside for quality

Frasers2012-010-12 Thomas_Pamela_and_Alison_Kong_great_views_SEIt’s not just the one-bedroom apartments proving popular at QIII. Perth businessman Thomas Kong and his wife Pamela love apartment living and have invested in a spectacular two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment on level 15 of the building.

“We’ve bought five apartments in Perth over the past six years, always focusing on capital growth and rental yields, and QIII looks to be the perfect investment at the present time,” said Mr Kong.

“We love big, bright views and we are presently living on Terrace Road, which is a great location, but the views from our new QIII apartment are outstanding.”

The Kongs purchased a stunning corner apartment with views to the south, southwest, south-east, east and north-east.

“All our properties are good rental propositions but we’ll definitely live in this one!” he said. The couple was also impressed by the enclosed loggia (balcony) space, the apartment’s floor-to-ceiling windows and the floor plan.

“Above all, I think the quality of the finishes stands out because there’ve been some fairly dodgy apartment developments in Perth, but Frasers’ international reputation is beyond question. They also offer the only true walk-through display apartment that we’ve seen in Perth.”

Mr Kong said the couple appreciated the ability to be able to ‘lock and leave’ the apartment, which fits with their frequent travels.

Queens Riverside penthouse buyer attracted by quality

test imageA respected but low profile Perth business family have emerged as the buyers of the first penthouse apartment sold in the flagship Qlll building at Frasers Property Australia’s Queens Riverside in East Perth.

 The $3.5-million level 24 penthouse apartment spans 260m2 of living area with a stunning terrace deck area of 171m2 offering spectacular views to the south-east, south and southwest across the Swan River. The buyers prefer to remain anonymous but the family patriarch said he had been inspecting investment apartments with his adult daughter when he first saw the Frasers display suite.

"I wasn't planning to buy anything myself but we'd looked at many properties for my daughter and I was impressed by the history of developments done by Frasers internationally," he said. The family expects the purchase will be a solid investment. "We believe there will be a healthy investment upside because of the amenity of Queens Riverside and the new Waterbank development closer to the Causeway."

The owners are now working with Frasers Property Australia and an interior designer to finalise the layout of their new apartment, which they intend to use as a pied-à-terre alternative to their coastal home on Perth's northern beaches.

The four remaining penthouse offerings are priced at $2.725 million and $3.25 million and range from 238m2 to 303m2 inclusive of balcony and outdoor spaces. The concept master plan for Queens Riverside was by Jones Coulter Young Architects. The design of QIII is by Perth architect Bruce Robinson, who was also responsible for the design of the Raffles redevelopment at Canning Bridge.

The 26 storey QIII building is architecturally bold with a distinctive identity, designed to embrace views of the Swan River, the CBD, the WACA Ground and the Darling Range.

Sales agent Wayne Briggs said all the apartments offered spectacular views and outstanding amenity with rooftop terraces, large decks and vast master suites. "One of the attractions of this collection of penthouses is the location within the wider Queens Riverside development," said Mr Briggs. Queens Riverside will deliver a new urban quarter for Perth at a time when demand for inner city accommodation is increasing sharply.

"The hospitality offering is central to the precinct's vibrant character," said Mr Briggs. The development combines 438 residential apartments in three separate buildings with commercial and retail suites, a new dining precinct and Fraser Suites Perth, a 236 room all suites hotel operated under the Frasers Hospitality brand. The QIII apartments share a dramatic porte cochere entry with Fraser Suites Perth, complete with water features, sculptures and a sparkling canopy, to make arriving home a five-star experience.

Frasers Property Australia has recorded impressive sales for Qlll, with more than 150 apartments now sold from a total of 267. Qlll is due to be completed in early 2014. Qlll is attracting a wide range of local, interstate and international buyers looking to secure a quality property off the plan, underpinned by the state's mining boom.

"The strength of the WA economy makes Perth an outstanding investment location. But quality and amenity are also important because we've seen strong sales at a time when some other properties are struggling to attract buyers," said Guy Pahor, CEO of Frasers Property Australia.

Room Service an Added Attraction

elIn a luxury property market first, apartment residents at the landmark Queens Riverside development will be offered food and beverage room service from the adjacent Fraser Suites Perth serviced residences.

Fraser Suites Perth general manager Bernard Teo said the offer of food and beverage room service was a natural fit in the masterplanned development.

"This is a trend that is developing in co-located developments in Europe and Asia and our international arm, Frasers Hospitality, has agreed that we should offer the service here, where the amenity of Queens Riverside is such an important element of the project," he said.

Sales agent Wayne Briggs said the hospitality offering was central to the precinct's vibrant character.

Riverside works underway

HR CMYK S Frasers QR Air-08Works on the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority's Riverside project are now underway. The Riverside project, of which Queens Riverside forms a part of, will help transform the eastern gateway into the city and create a vibrant new destination for the people of Perth and visitors to the city.

Works to achieve the vision for Riverside are now underway and will involve stabilising ground conditions to ensure the site is ready for future public spaces and development, and creating new connections that will cater for the growing numbers of people who will live, work and socialise in the Riverside area.

These infrastructure works will occur on and around the Waterbank site, which is adjacent to the Causeway, Trinity College and the WACA. Works are planned on Hale Street and parts of the Waterbank site from 30 March 2012 to 9 April 2012. For more information download the MRA's fact sheet here.
