Andrews’ Projects latest Gold Coast tower Allegra is fit for the whole family
Gold Coast Bulletin
BUYERS seeking to downsize are snapping up units in Southport’s $64 million apartment tower Allegra.
Family-run development business Andrews Projects has sold three units in the 15-storey building to three generations of family members.
Justin Brown and his wife Rachael purchased a two-bedroom apartment on the ninth floor, Justin’s daughter will move into the apartment next door, while her grandparents bought a unit on the 13th floor.
The family, who lived in Pacific Pines for 17 years and raised their two daughters, were seeking a three-bedroom apartment after their daughters moved out.
Justin, a medical sales representative, says the family needed a place that could accommodate his daughter’s needs.
“When we asked the developer, they said they would gladly put a dual-key door between our two apartments,” Justin says.
“This sealed the deal, as our youngest daughter requires a level of care but will also want to live independently as she grows older,” he says.
“When my parents – who live in New Zealand and are retiring next year – saw the project, they decided to buy as well.”
Allegra is the fifth project in the suburb for family developer Andrews Projects, with all previous developments sold out before completion.
The development includes a range of one and two bedroom apartments, with prices starting from $429,000.
Justin says the location was ideal.
“My wife is a nurse at the Gold Coast University Hospital and will be able to catch the light rail to work,” he says.
“I already travel to the Southport Aquatic Centre a couple of times a week to swim, which will be even easier after we move in.
“Southport is really coming into its own as a fantastic area to live and, with the Commonwealth Games on our doorstep in just under two years, we’ll be in the box seat to experience all the excitement and action.”
Allegra features floor to ceiling windows , study nooks and an ensuited bedroom design. The family will move in next year when construction finishes on the 114-unit project.
