As the soil turns and the concrete is poured at the site of Redland city’s most iconic building in decades Redlands tradies’ and traders are set to reap rewards from the $90 plus million Toondah Outlook Apartment Project.
The magnificent building is a first for Redland city and a first for South Est Queensland, bringing a luxury resort style approach to day to day living and an end to the ‘downsize’ domain that has dictated unit construction on the East Coast for the past 25 years.
Designed and being constructed by local Redland Company AFT Projects, Toondah Outlook is an Apartment block that has its heritage in some of the most impressive lifestyle and resort style concepts globally.
And millions of dollars, most of the 90 plus million of them, is being spent with local Redland business.
Developer and Property Analyst Chris Anderson and his wife Virginia are the brains trust behind the project and say ensuring the project utilizes as much local labour and product as possible is all part of the vision.
Chris Anderson says just as Redlands has been good to him, this project is about being good to the region.
“It’s an iconic design, a radical move in property development logic and it suits our city down to the ground because it taps into all that makes Redlands one of the greatest places on earth.”
“‘This project is about showcasing the best of what this wonderful area of South East Queensland has on offer. We are local builders and developers and we always look local for our team first.”
“Importantly also is that our family, our kids, have grown up enjoying a Redland lifestyle so we get all that this city has on offer. Time to spread the word and meet the challenge.”
The 99 Strong Apartment hub is expected to take just 18 months to complete and will offer 2 to five-bedroom residences across an impressive 3-street frontage location.
“This is not about saving space though establishing a communal pocket, rather it is about ease of living and choice.”
Virginia Anderson says she nor Chris could imagine developing such an iconic project anywhere else but in Redlands.
“We have a city that is breathtaking…no doubt. We have multi-million- dollar huge homes, dotted across the water front and on acreage around city boundaries full of owners now looking to move to life’s next step”
“Then we have the new world young thinkers, wanting all the advantages of city convenience but with environmental advantages, and without loss of access to food schools, or transportation-Where else but here?”
And Chris Anderson says the project has hit a chord, with more than 66% of the Apartments already sold.
“Our sales are very solid and at time when the small unit market is failing. It tells us the market is crying out for this new approach to living. For us it is the old story…listen to the people and build what they want and they will come.”
“Of course, the beauty, views, proximity to water amenities and transport helps.”
