An aerial shot showing the location of Edgewater Apartments at Redland BayA new waterfront apartment complex will be built overlooking Moreton Bay and Stradbroke Island, with five of the 28 residences already sold off-the-plan. Construction of the five-storey Edgewater Apartments at Redland Bay is expected to start in January, with the two and three bedroom apartments tipped to “set a new benchmark” in luxury waterfront living in the Redlands. A render showing Edgewater Apartments, which will be built at Redland Bay.Perth-based developer Sunfire Assets chose the site due to the area’s population growth, demographics and lack of smaller dwellings such as units and townhouses. Sunfire director Ralph Nunis said he was drawn to the area due to its proximity to the water’s edge.“Coming from the west, you just can’t get land that close to the water,” he said. “I remember standing on the balcony of one of the nearby houses and thinking, it’s like being on a holiday.”Five apartments – ranging in price from $550,000 to $750,000 – have already sold, with remaining apartments priced between $490,000 and $790,000.Each apartment has been designed by Brisbane-based firm, ThinkTank Architects, and will be built by local building firm, Contrast Constructions. Ray White Redland Bay agent Shaun Lennon, who is marketing the apartments on behalf of the developer, said he was currently in negotiations with three other potential buyers. “The vast majority of interest has come from locals living within a 5km radius of the development,” he said.
