This environment has been built with other athletes in mind to take advantage of Brisbane’s exceptional outdoor lifestyle,” she said.Keen cyclists and community fundraisers, DevCorp is a sponsor of the Brisbane BMW and Westside BMW Ride for Life Challenge taking place on October 29 in the city.Lume had a successful launch two years ago and then underwent a five-month redesign to change the floor plates of the unsold stock, allowing buyers to reconfigure the plans as their needs required.“We redesigned to respond to the local downsizer market, and also those young families moving into the city but still requiring the functional space of a family home without the maintenance,” Ms Thornton said.“It’s a building of refined luxury. This is our signature project and it’s an attractive mix of facility and luxury and refinement.”. A licensed builder with 25 years of development experience, DevCorp managing director Murray Thornton leads the team.“Murray’s eye for detail and his commitment to continued excellence leaves a defining mark on each and every DevCorp development. He’s a classically trained carpenter and very focused on the small things and getting the solar aspect right.”The floor-to-ceiling glass walls in Lume enables homeowners to enjoy their views without interruption.“In Queensland, that can be very important,” Ms Thornton said. “You’ll be living in a great location where it is so easy to get to either of the coasts and with great access to the main road infrastructure and the airport too.”The display suite is open at 25 Shafston Avenue, Kangaroo Point. Ray White New Farm agent Tom Lyne said there had never been a better time to consider apartment living in Brisbane. “Lume has been cleverly designed around putting your lifestyle first, with first class amenities and a location on the doorstep of the cultural hubs in Brisbane. We anticipate strong interest in these three bed residences because Brisbane is currently experiencing a shortage of quality apartment offerings.”last_img
