After 2 years of meticulous planning, we are excited to be launching our latest development Obsidian. Located in the famous woolstore suburb of Teneriffe, these 14 luxury apartments are within a narrow radius of the CBD. Less than 3km downstream from Brisbane’s city heart it is a retreat amid the hustle and bustle in an area that has been a hive of activity for decades.

Obsidian is equal parts nostalgia and new wave, with a visage inspired by a cross-section of a submarine. The project was designed in a way to reflect the aspirational and eclectic precinct, a focal point of intertwining generations. The inspired architecture blends a combination of cultural heritage and modern living to create a timeless design for the next generation’s experiences of inner-city living.

Location and layout are not the only standout features of these beautifully planned apartments. Carefully considered, the 12 residences are embellished with style from the bedrooms and bathrooms through to the kitchen and entertainment areas. While positioned close to the commotion of the capital city, Obsidian delivers breathing space and sublime touches to meet expectations on a luxurious life on terra firma.

The 2 penthouses offer exclusive additions and luxurious space in which to relax and entertain. Featuring expansive terraces, volumetric ceilings and breath taking panoramic views, they are a pocket of seclusion and splendour. 

Very few neighbourhoods offer the promise of such an outdoor, immersive lifestyle so close to the city. The tree-lined streets and natural geography offer residents the opportunity of peace, seclusion and outdoor activities.

Inspiration and influence come in all forms, at any time. It happens with the music we hear; the people we meet; the culture and city in which we choose to surround and immerse ourselves in. Travelling the world pushes our imagination as we are taken out of our comfort zone and learn to see the world under a different light. History and culture help shape a city with these influences present in the architecture and urban planning. I love taking these newly discovered designs as inspiration and investing them into future projects.

My latest travels to the States saw Boston take the stage and boast its many delights and hidden treasures, and as expected it did not disappoint! The redbrick Boston homes nestled along tree lined streets showcase the architectural combination of mother nature vs man. Many of the homes exterior elaborately covered in vines as if mother nature herself was the designer. As one of America’s oldest cities, it is a perfect example of new meets old as the history and the remnants left behind blend with ease into a very modern, fast-moving city; a splendid balance of old characteristics with a modern twist.

Every day Boston sends you on a journey, it lets you step back in time to the earlier days of America. A beautiful city soaked in historical buildings and venues alongside gleaming high rises as you get lost in the beauty of it all. The thought and strategy implemented in the urban planning of this city is second to none; from the preservation of the cities rich heritage and architecture to the unique neighbourhoods and public green spaces. Although it is an intertwining maze of terrace homes, high rises, retail, transport and nature, each building, structure and object stands alone adding it’s own unique touch to Boston’s canvas.

After 2-3 years Visie Development Projects still look pretty amazing.   All Visie developments projects are meticulous in design and landscaping, that’s why they look so good even after the project has long been completed.

These are actual photographs of the project.  You can see the beautiful landscape set against the afternoon backdrop.  This is typical of all Visie Development Projects, we build to encompass the surrounding environment.    Visie Properties not only creates architecturally stunning building designs, they also make sure that landscaping lasts for many years beyond project completion.

Another job well done from the team at Visie Properties.

Retired? Treat yourself to living in the Sunshine State. Now is the best time to get into the property market in Brisbane. Choose from one of our luxurious apartments a stone’s throw away from Brisbane CBD.

Brisbane is Australia’s New World City. Its proximity to Asia and a progressive and open business environment makes Brisbane a city of choice for doing business in the Asia Pacific region. Key locality benefits include:

  • closest capital city on eastern seaboard to Australia’s three largest export markets – China, Japan and South Korea
  • similar time zone to the major trading nations of South East Asia
  • Brisbane Airport is conveniently located less than 20 minutes and 12 kilometres from the city centre
  • The Port of Brisbane is one of Australia’s largest-growing container ports and Queensland’s largest general cargo port
  • international Networking opportunities with Council’s sister cities

Below are some featured projects that will help take Brisbane to new heights.

1. Queen’s Wharf (Above And Below)

Queens Wharf - future

Queen’s Wharf Brisbane is set to attract new visitors and investment as it reconnects the activity of Brisbane’s defining parts of the city like the Botanic Gardens, the Queen Street Mall, the Cultural Precinct, South Bank, the Parliamentary Precinct and the Brisbane River.

It is being delivered by Star Entertainment Group , Far East Consortium (Australia) and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises in order to facilitate the planning and delivery of the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane Integrated Resort Development, and is expected to create more than 2000 construction jobs and 8000 ongoing employment opportunities when the Integrated Resort Development is operational in 2022.

Queen’s Wharf will include:

  • Five new hotels– including premium brands like the Ritz-Carlton
  • Three residential towers
  • A new department store
  • About 50 food and beverage outlets
  • A riverfront moonlight cinema
  • A Queensland Hotel and Hospitality School in partnership with TAFE Queensland.

The development is expected to deliver $1.69 billion annual increase in tourism and 1.39 million additional tourists per annum, along with $4 billion to the Gross State Product.

2. Northshore Hamilton (Below)

Owned by Economic Development Queensland (EDQ), Northshore Hamilton is Brisbane’s largest urban renewal precinct, spanning 304 hectares and will have an important role to play in helping the city position itself for the future.

In the next 20 years, Northshore’s primarily industrial area will be transformed into a $5 billion vibrant riverside precinct over the next 20 years. It will cater for 15,000 residents and become an employment hub for about 15,000 workers in retail precincts and office parks.

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 11.47.20 AM

Northshore will include 2.5km of dedicated riverfront, with a mixture of parkland and community space. These spaces will complement the combination of residential, retail and commercial opportunities on site.

The initial works on this project have included 700 apartments across five towers and also include retail and commercial space.

3. Brisbane Airport Redevelopment (Below)

Brisbane Airport Australia is currently on the way to delivering the country’s best runway system with the $3.8 billion New Parallel Runway Project (NPR) for Brisbane Airport. While the airport has about 100 other projects in the works for the next 10 years, this NPR is considered the biggest aviation project in Australia.

Building the NPR will involve utilising 360 hectares of marshland by pumping 11 million cubic metres of sand onto the site. Over time and with the help of 330,000 wick drains funneling the water to the surface, the weight of the sand will create a solid base for construction on the runway.

New Brisbane runway

Brisbane Airport’s new runway is currently under construction.

The runway’s pavement will be 3.3km long, 60m wide and will have 12km of taxiways. It will create 2700 construction jobs to complete by 2020.

4. Howard Smith Wharves (Below)

The Howard Smith Wharves project covers a 3.43 hectare riverside precinct that will connect the New Farm Riverwalk and the CBD and revitalise Petrie Bight

The project is intent on respecting the area’s heritage and will incorporate the heritage-listed buildings into the redevelopment. The new parkland will also enable a pedestrian and cycle connection through the site to link the city centre with Riverwalk at New Farm.

Howard Smith Wharf-Future

Events such as cultural and food festivals will be hosted at the exhibition complex, which will include restaurants and bars.

The Howard Smith Wharves project’s key features include:

  • A dining, retail and tourism centre utilising the existing heritage-listed buildings
  • New public open spaces that may be used for markets and festivals
  • A 64-room, five-star Art Series boutique hotel
  • A hotel facade that blends into the cliff face with natural tones and textures to keep the iconic Story Bridge as the main focus
  • Underground carpark for about 350 vehicles
  • A 1500sqm exhibition space.

HSW Nominees is undertaking the revitalisation of Howard Smith Wharves.

 5. Brisbane Quarter (Below)

Brisbane Quarter - 300 George St Montage

Located at 300 George Street and developed by Taiwan’s Shayher Group, Brisbane Quarter is the city’s first integrated, world-class mixed use precinct.

Brisbane Quarter encompasses a complete city block with Brisbane River views and will include Australia’s first purpose-built W Hotel, two levels of riverside dinning and luxury retail shopping beneath a 40 storey Prime Grade office tower, as well as an 82 storey luxury residential apartment building.

Tenants of the hotel will have direct access to Brisbane Quarter’s food and beverage precinct with alfresco dining overlooking the Brisbane River, some of Brisbane’s most exciting bars and restaurants, spa facilities and a rooftop park land.

The retail portion of Brisbane Quarter will likely attract international and interstate visitors and become a high-profile location opportunity for locals looking for a signature destination.

6. Brisbane Metro (Below)

While still in its early stages, the Brisbane Metro Subway system was a commitment by Brisbane City council to provide a reliable high-frequency transport system that will reduce CBD bus congestion, cut travel times and allow for the redirection of buses to improve services in the suburbs.

Brisbane Metro 1

Brisbane Metro would run on a dedicated route linking Woolloongabba to Herston, utilising sections of the South East and Inner Northern Busways, and would remove up to 200 buses per hour in the morning peak from the Victoria Bridge.

When complete, the metro would be able to carry up to 30,000 passengers per hour and will run every two minutes, providing seven kilometres of safe, reliable, smooth and quick travel from Herston to Woolloongabba.

7. Brisbane Live (Below)

Brisbane Live is Australia’s response to New York’s Madison Square Garden in New York City, as a 17,000 seat world class arena which will showcase international superstar concerts and performances as well as world sporting events.

The complex will be built above Roma street rail lines and would make use of public transport facilities making it accessible to everyone in Brisbane.
BRISBANE-LIVE_MASTERPLAN_HEROSHOT_r-1170x550_620x380

Brisbane Live’s masterplan, which belongs to AEG-Ogden, a subsidiary company of AEG and the world’s largest entertainment venue operator, revealed that it will feature a sliding front wall that opens to reveal live acts on stage, and the $450 million arena will also include a 4000-capacity rock club and be surrounded by multiplex cinemas, restaurants and bars, and a giant screen and amphitheatre catering for around 15,000 people.
