Bowen Hills Developments

See article in BusinessDay.

Towers of up to 30 storeys high will soon start being built in Bowen Hills as developers snap up land in Brisbane's booming inner-north. But ailing confidence in the property market has one company struggling to secure pre-commitment commercial sales vital to the commencement of construction. ...
Metro Property Group, headed by property baron David Devine, has also turned its attention to Bowen Hills announcing last month it had sold all 195 units in The Chelsea, on Hamilton and Tufton streets, since the project's launch last November.
Metro Property Group has been given the green light for another two apartment towers of 24 and 30 storeys in the suburb.The developer's 24-storey tower on Mayne Road, which will protrude over the Edgar Street laneway, includes 242 apartments in total. Although the taller tower, The Madison on Campbell Street, exceeds the ULDA's 24-storey general height limit in the precinct, the body's design panel said the additional storeys made the tower appear more "slender".
