Ocean outlook attracts buyers

Posted: 9am 09 Aug 2021

A guaranteed waterfront view has resulted in more than $40 million in sales at Traders in Purple’s latest luxury residential project at Newport.

Already 65 percent of the first release of the ‘Lasail’ development has been snapped up by buyers off-the-plan, just three months after its launch onto the market.

It will include two six-storey buildings, and marina, surrounded by lush, landscaped gardens, communal pools, lawns, barbecue areas and boardwalks along the water.

Construction has commenced on the 11,500sqm site and, when completed, it will offer 126 residences, orientated north-east with views stretching out to Moreton Bay and the Glass House Mountains.

The first stage is due to be completed in late 2022.

Traders In Purple Development Director Queensland Brett Lentz says: “Our vision has been to maximise the unique waterfront position for all owners and that has meant taking great care and consideration to ensure that every single apartment has a water frontage with spectacular views”.

“As a result, we have had a terrific response from buyers who - like us - have fallen in love with this premium location and the enviable coastal lifestyle it will deliver.

“We want to redefine resort style living by offering something extra special and taking full advantage of an absolutely stunning and one-of-a-kind location – we are very proud of Lasail.”

Easy living at heart of design

Designed by RotheLowman Architects, the two and three-bedroom high-end apartments have been created to be the ‘pinnacle of easy living’, allowing residents to spend more time doing the things they love.

The gardens and recreation areas have been created by award-winning Form Architects.

Currently Stage One of ‘Lasail’ is selling off-the-plan with all two-bedroom waterfront apartments sold, while three-bedroom waterfront apartments remain from $875,000. All apartments have two car spaces and separate storage facilities.

Each has an open-plan design – some with house-like dual living areas – and spacious alfresco entertainment terraces. Floor-to-ceiling windows will capture the sea breeze, while stylish kitchens will be fitted with Miele appliances, stone benchtops and soft-close cabinetry.

All main bedrooms feature a water outlook plus a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite.

Residents moving into ‘Lasail’ will also have a unique opportunity to purchase a mooring within the project’s adjoining marina.

“It is very rare to be able to offer brand new luxury apartments with their own marina berth in such a sought-after location. The Moreton Bay region is one of the most idyllic spots in Australia, so these unique waterfront apartments in this beautiful area are very special,” Mr Lentz says.

Strong interest

While initially designed for local downsizers, the project has also been attracting interest from buyers from Sydney and Melbourne relocating to the region.

Traders In Purple specialises in coastal developments, urban renewal and heritage sites and has $2 billion worth of projects in the pipeline across Queensland, New South Wales and Tasmania.

‘Lasail’ is its 11th residential development on the Redcliffe peninsula and follows Vavé at Scarborough, Bathers Beachside and the Sebel Hotel at Margate Beach, which won the 2018 AccorHotels award for the best new hotel in Australia.

Stage One of ‘Lasail’ has been so successful, plans are currently underway to fast-track the release of the second stage of the $120 million project. Construction is expected to create around 300 jobs for the area.

As part of the masterplanned community, residents purchasing into Lasail will also be able to enjoy activities on the 22ha Newport Lake including sailing, kayaking and paddleboarding.
