Buyers hunting for a slice of luxury within Brisbane’s bayside suburb of Manly have their chance at an exclusive collection of architecturally designed residences boasting views over Manly boat harbour and Moreton Bay.

Construction has begun on Manly’s newest collection of just eight luxury residences. The Wellington Collection is ideally situated in the prestigious and tightly held pocket of Wellington Street, Manly.

The development comprises of two new buildings encompassing six luxury apartments and two stunning townhomes, poised to become one of Manly’s most desirable addresses.

This architecturally designed project is being delivered by Urbex Living, a division of the Australian national award-winning developer Urbex, and is expected to be completed in late 2023 with near half of the sales were secured off the plan, with prices starting from $2m to $3.375m.

Development Director of Urbex, Carl Bruhn, said “Urbex has a track record of delivering award-winning communities nationally, and we are excited to commence construction on this bespoke offering in Manly”.

Utilising the key design elements of screening, light and ventilation, The Wellington Collection is in perfect balance with the aspect and simple beauty of the area. The north-east aspect gives residents expanded views of the marina and bay while natural, textured materials create a palette that perfectly complements the bayside location.

In addition to the home-like proportions with generous floor plans spanning 199m2 to 472m2, the luxurious collection includes lift access from all residences. Amenity in the apartments offer residents an outdoor pool, outdoor and indoor entertaining spaces with the townhomes providing a private outdoor lounge deck, plunge pool and lush, tropical gardens, all without the maintenance and upkeep associated with bigger homes.

General Manager for Urbex Realty, Craig Covacich, said a Manly Village lifestyle is highly desirable.

“Recent home sales are now exceeding the $5m price tag and many others firmly sitting above the $2M range, Manly has very quickly become a frontrunner in the Brisbane property market. The suburb has presented a compounded growth rate of 40.5% in houses and 27% in units based on the past five years of sales,” Covacich said.

“Much of the appeal for The Wellington Collection to date has been from buyers seeking housing solutions aligned to their new phase of life, like growing their family or transitioning out of life with kids.

“To date, we have already seen nearly half of The Wellington Collection’s residences sold off the plan to local buyers, and with the continuing demand for bayside views, we expect much of the remainder of the collection to attract Brisbane locals looking to be closer to the water.”

The Wellington Collection is selling and invites buyers to get in quick to avoid missing out on this rare bayside opportunity. To schedule a private appointment, interested buyers can contact Stacey Scrutton via [email protected] or call 1300 420 260. For more information, please visit
