The Unison team was joined by Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk this week, who marked the project’s milestone with a sod-turning ceremony to launch the highly anticipated development.
Unison is the third stage of Mirvac’s premiere Waterfront precinct - which includes the Pier and Park Residencies – and marks the developer’s next residential construction project in Queensland.
With one bedroom apartments priced from $375,000, Unison will meet the increasing demand for attainable, yet sophisticated, urban dwellings in one of Brisbane’s most sought after areas.
The Lord Mayor added that in addition to attracting home buyers to the area, Unison’s construction would also yield benefits for the local economy.
“High-quality residential developments attract equally high-quality retailers and commercial operators, creating emerging pockets in Brisbane that provide the ease of city living coupled with a local community feel.
“This is reflected in the high demand for real estate in the 4006 postcode, particularly by those who want to move home but don’t want to leave this thriving area.”
Mirvac’s Group Executive, Residential, John Carfi, said Mirvac was delighted to be building again in Brisbane.
“Our return to south east Queensland marks an exciting time for Mirvac. It has been a couple of years since the completion of our last apartment construction and we are pleased to see that demand for our high-quality yet affordable homes has not waned.”
In fact, overwhelming demand for Unison’s stage one development, Unison South, has resulted in plans to launch the second stage, Unison North, to the public earlier than anticipated.
“All signs point to us needing to launch Unison North much earlier than we’d originally projected,” Mr Carfi said.
“We’re looking at the public release happening this side of Christmas rather than mid-next year, which is great news for the business and demonstrates that we really have got it right with this development.”
