Lume, the brand new luxury apartment development, is ready to take Brisbane by storm as it fuses the dynamic multi-award winning designs of architect Cox Rayner with the rich heritage of the surrounding Kangaroo Point area to create stunning apartments like nothing seen before.
Highly visible from the central Shafston Avenue, Lume features a jaw-dropping view of the Brisbane skyline, an above-city lounge with community terrace, garden, and function space, and, the part we are most excited about, a stunning rooftop infinity-edge pool.
Located within a short walking distance to the Brisbane CBD, South Bank Parklands, Riverstage and The Gabba, Lume is custom designed for inner-city living at its finest.
Lume has also revealed a dedication and appreciation for the local community, and the heritage that they keep alive.
DevCorp, the Brisbane based developer behind the new building, recently presented a $1500 cheque to Ronald McDonald House South East Queensland at the unveiling of a display luxury suite – the first time that Lume had been open to the public.
DevCorp managing director Murray Thornton said that they appreciated the support that the local community had shown them, and felt that the ideas driving Lume harmonized with those behind the Ronald McDonald House charity.
“Kangaroo Point has really got behind our exciting development and we felt it was important to express our appreciation and give something back to the community,” Thornton said. “Lume apartments showcase interiors that exude a distinctly home ambience and we, at DevCorp, want to help Ronald McDonald create that home-away-from-home feeling for seriously ill children and their families needing accommodation.”
“The first Ronald McDonald House was built on love; Lume translates to more than love in urban vernacular, and we felt our relationship was the perfect match.” Thornton said.
As well as supporting the local community, Lume is directly inspired by the iconic Kangaroo Point cliff-faces, and its industrial past, and includes elements like sculpted vertical walls and stone-hued facades.
A display suite is currently available for the public to view at 25 Shafston Avenue, Kangaroo Point from 10am to 4pm daily.
