Ultra-convenience and the best of urban lifestyles are offered by The Aurora Tower, a Brisbane City friendly neighbourhood in clean-air sky that is close to jobs, education, shopping, recreation and entertainment.

Buy at a current rental furnished quote of about 6.5 per cent gross pa.

This thoughtfully designed apartment has much natural light in its sizeable living and dining area and two double-sized bedrooms. There is generous storage inside, a big bathroom and a separate enclosed laundry space.

The wide, south-facing balcony is a place to sit and relax, and gets the sun for much of the day. The Aurora Tower comes with its own big gym, pool, sauna and spa, BBQ areas and other communal areas, to which most of Level 7 is devoted.

Brisbane City shopping, eating, parks and nightlife await, as does the Cultural Precinct of South Bank. Enjoy long walks along the river and ferry rides. Nearby are the highly popular inner suburbs of West End, New Farm, Newstead and Fortitude Valley. Read all about it here: www.mustdobrisbane.com

Recently on seek.com.au, there were about 10,000 job vacancies notified by Brisbane City business and government advertisers, and about another 7000 by businesses within 10km of the building. The Brisbane City rising population (ABS 2021 Census for postcode 4000) has reached more than 20,000 people, with about 55 per cent aged 20-40 and about 20 per cent aged 40-60. The City is famed for diversity and tolerance and an international outlook.

This 19th-level Aurora apartment is excellent for hybrid working with a base in inner Brisbane, given its road and transport connections. It also can be perfect for retirement and staycation living, with its level walks to shopping, the riverside and public buildings.

This is a comfortable, fully cooled and heated apartment for your city living or investment for tenancy (rent up to $600pw) or a hotel letting pool. It has an 86m2 floor plan including balcony, a modern kitchen with European appliances, two big bedrooms, ducted air-conditioning and its own car space. The 67-storey, 2006-built tower offers residents a 30m lap pool, spa, sauna, fully equipped gym, little cinema and lounge facilities.

Free internet Wi-Fi and paid fast access also. The unit is virtually without internal noise.

Outgoings are on the lower side with present council rates averaging rates $380 a quarter, body corporate levies $1800 every four months, power/gas from $170 a quarter and water/sewerage from $200 a quarter.

The property-price outlook for Brisbane remains strong. See September changes nationally in Pictures.
An indication of the price outlook from Australian Property Investor: “The Brisbane property market is diverging between houses, which are in decline, and units and townhouses that are continuing to grow.’’ (August, 2022: www.apimagazine.com.au/news/article/brisbane-unit-and-house-prices-head-in-opposite-directions)
