Lol. At what cost? You've seriously just identified the premium towers + Admiralty and Quay West (old buildings when land was cheap as chips).

Although it's funny you mention 443 as a couple of people on here calling them pokey.

Seriously dog box is about design quality and layout so much more than size. This is almost impossible to pick up from floor plans.

don't buy here then?

seems unjustified to complain about a developer actually marketing something they know will sell

this one seems well above average for the neighbourhood really

do you want to give me your phone number and i'll get a real estate agent to give you a call??
several have mine and clear instructions about what i'm looking for: 2 bedrooms preferred to 3, 100m internal, corner apartment or open to 2 sides, 2 car parks

i don't get many calls

The last 3 for existing properties were for Skyline for ($1.8 million), Parkland ($1.4 million), Arbour on Gray ($1.4 million)

For new....Abdian ($1.2 million +), 443 ($1.2 million +) - and again, this isn't for a penthouse, this is 2 bedrooms typically. Want a third in 443 and you're well above 2 million.

for that much money, i'm happy with my current place.

You still around orfeo, haven't seen u post in ages. Thought you were the leading candidate for the Forumers MIA thread.

...Maybe you just post in different threads to me.
There is always a bigger question.

As Brisbane continues to rapidly gain critical mass in the inner city, smaller apartments will be offset with more public amenities and things to do.

Id rather a small apartment but a vibrant and happening city so I can be out and about. Also smaller apartments are faster to clean :P

IMO one of the biggest problems in QLD right now is simply the lack of rental properties that those on welfare and really low incomes can afford regardless of size, quality or location.

And I doubt those on such low incomes have any real expectations other than somewhere safe to live that they can afford.
