275 WICKHAM ST, FORTITUDE VALLEY, BRISBANE
An address to surprise and delight…
A venue for thrill seekers – and a haven for the well-heeled.
Utopia is Brisbane’s most decadent new lifestyle address – a one-of-a-kind living, breathing, socialising, experiencing, exhilarating destination – where the unexpected awaits around every corner and indulgence resides at each turn.
It’s all here, perfectly positioned on Australia’s picturesque eastern seaboard, in Queensland’s burgeoning capital city, Brisbane.
So much more than an address, Utopia is a state of mind – an attitude of forward thinking, innovation, connectivity and community.
A place where you can create your ideal living space through shared experiences with like-minded residents, inspiring rooftop events and recreational facilities, which cater to all moods and lifestyles.
Utopia’s 1, 2 and 3 bedroom residences offer a refreshingly modern twist on the Australian residential lifestyle. With a unique, enclosed balcony design, the balcony space will be fully utilised. The balcony is built, based on the interior specification, with the bio-folding doors opening up to 90% of the balcony space. The balcony window can be easily opened and closed, hence, residents can enjoy full usage of indoor / outdoor functionality. Such design is stylish, gracious yet fine, luxurious and classic.
Extensive use of Nanoglass has been incorporated into each apartment, shielding heat by up to 67.1% and keeping rooms up to 8.3 degrees cooler. Nanoglass also blocks 99% of UV rays, 23% of infrared rays and provides light transparency of 84%. Regular glass only blocks around 12% of UV rays, 18% of infrared rays and light transparency is around 92%. This use of smart glass ensures your apartment is bathed in sunshine, yet reduces the need for excessive air conditioning and also protects soft furnishings, paintings, prints and other décor that may be prone to fading.
Utopia Space’s glazing adopts the world’s most advanced Japanese ‘Nano Glass’ technology. Without impacting on light transparency, it blocks up to 99% of UV light. Residents can enjoy the Queensland sun and views from indoors, without worry of sunburn or damage to furniture, or fabric that’s traditionally caused by exposure to direct sunlight. This type of glass can also block up to 76% Near Infrared (NIR) light, and achieves up to 20% savings on energy associated with operational costs of mechanical heating/cooling. By keeping temperature levels steady in both summer, and winter seasons, this glass improves the spaciousness and comfort levels of the dwelling. Such glass also comes with built-in anti-pest; anti-fog and self-cleaning functions which significantly reduce the cost of cleaning.
A hub of regeneration and development in central Brisbane, The Valley’s investment indicators are stronger than ever. As the closest eastern seaboard capital city to Asia, Brisbane is one of the fastest growing metropolises in the country and increasingly recognised as a New World City on the global stage.
Boasting a year round subtropical climate that allows residents to embrace the outdoors and enjoy a quality of life that’s arguably the best in Australia, Brisbane is hard to beat as an investment and lifestyle city.
It’s here just northeast of Brisbane’s CBD that The Valley is positioned for sustained growth, a fact evidenced by a 3.8% annual growth rate in median apartment prices, over the 10 year period ending December 2014. Similarly, apartments have achieved a median rental growth of 4.2%, 4.5% and 4.6% per annum, for one, two and three bedroom apartments respectively in the 10 years to March 2015.
In addition, the Fortitude Valley catchment is forecast to increase by nearly 19,000 residents by 2031, which equates to more than 1,000 new residents each year. With personal incomes of Fortitude Valley residents averaging $67,971 ($15,000 more than Brisbane’s median) it’s easy to see the demand by high paying, quality residents in The Valley will only continue to increase.
Sandt Developments Group Pty Ltd is one of Australia’s fastest growing development companies, with a mission to create bespoke accommodation to meet the growing demands of the luxury residential and regeneration market. With the Utopia Space project approved by the Brisbane City Council, Sandt Developments is now developing one of the tallest buildings in The Valley area.
