The future of inner city Maitland
To the Future
Imagine for a moment that this picture was looking over the Hunter River at Maitland and our beautiful city of 75,000 people, truly had the luxury option for inner city living but hang on, there is no way that could happen in Maitland, it would be unprecedented for a non tourist town. Stop and look at Rockhampton, a non tourist town of 75,000 people on the banks of a big river, sound familiar? We have been taking expressions of interest for the Cheeva Apartments and enquiry has been strong but there is so much more opportunity to do more than the 3 stories that are currently allowed. In my opinion if the height limit was lifted along the river to 6 stories, suddenly economy of scale comes into it and the addition of lifts and stunning common areas come into the flow.
Lets make our city a beacon for growth and bring back the can do attitude, just imagine if there was suddenly 5 or 6 large scale luxury apartment buildings along the river with commercial underneath along our revamped mall.
Just imagine the ad, this is how it reads in Rockhampton
A limited number of riverview & riverfront 2 bed; 2 bed plus study; and 3 bed plus media apartments remaining, priced from $435,000.
Gallery Stage 1 features just thirty of the regions largest two and three bedroom luxury residences, plus podium level restaurant, all with river views and north easterly aspect.
Gallery apartments are located on the finest residential parcel of land on Rockhampton’s magnificent riverbank. The Gallery development is set on over three quarters of an acre, and adjoins Rockhampton’s cultural precinct, which includes the Pilbeam Theatre and Rockhampton Art Gallery.
