Construction of HG Developments’ 17 level Omega Apartments in the heart of the trendy RNA showgrounds urban renewal precinct in Bowen Hills has finished on schedule. The $77.5 million Omega Apartments feature 130 spacious apartments consisting of 42 one-bedroom apartments, 10 one-bedrooms plus multi-purpose rooms, 52 two-bedroom apartments and 26 two bedrooms plus a study. Located at 61 Brookes Street, the majority of Omega units have panoramic views across the city due to the first four levels being a podium car park.
Omega Apartments is located on the cusp of Fortitude Valley and residents are within walking distance of the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, the vibrant King Street Precinct in the heart of the Brisbane Showgrounds and the café, restaurant, retail and lifestyle destinations of Gasworks Plaza and James Street. Hutchinson Builders have completed the construction on schedule.
HG Developments director Director Simon Gundelach said he was looking forward to seeing residents move in and experience their new inner-city lifestyle and be a part of the Omega Apartments’ community. “We’ve designed a smart building that includes a self-ventilated podium car park, as opposed to a mechanically ventilated one, in order to significantly reduce our carbon footprint and reduce the body’s corporate’s running and maintenance costs. Onsite amenities comprise expansive recreational areas, including a solar-powered subtropical roof-top sky garden with a horizon-edge pool with skyline views, a gas fire pit and three barbecues. Residents facilities also include a yoga deck, gymnasium and music room,” he said.
Boasting a stylish urban character, Omega Apartments’ one and two-bedroom apartments are among the largest on offer in Brisbane’s inner city. They offer spacious designer living with contemporary finishes, Miele kitchen appliances, timber flooring, ducted and zoned air-conditioning as well as marble splashbacks and rose gold tapwears. The building is a 12-minute drive from Brisbane Airport and is well serviced by transport infrastructure, including the existing Bowen Hills train station and the new Exhibition train station being built as part of the State Government’s $5.4 billion Cross River Rail project.
