One local property owner hopes the answer is over $600,000, with this vacant block currently for sale in Dutton Street. This is an old and small suburb so naturally it’s unusual to find a vacant lot. This block is a big one for the area at 607m2 (24 perches for the not-as-young readers!) and we’ll watch with interest to see what it finally sells for.

There’s something encouraging and positive in construction starting on a new building, especially when the land has been sitting vacant for many years. So the workers at Annerley Road’s “Dutton Place” have created plenty of comment amongst locals as this tiny suburb’s first major residential development gets underway.

Stockwell Group are behind the 100 apartments and their track record is strong. Their recently completed “Riverpoint” Apartments at West End have earned them good respect from buyers and the property industry alike and despite the cooler property market “Dutton Place” has been selling well, even before the ground-breaking. There’s now just a handful of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments still for sale from $380,000.

Like any good real estate the location is key, and “Dutton Place” is central to a number of the big employment nodes in Brisbane’s inner-city. The Mater and PA hospitals, the CBD itself and, via the new busway link, Qld Uni. The Boggo Road redevelopment is just across the street and has itself been a sleepy, huge, empty development site for a long, long time. Finally CSIRO have moved into their new offices and there’s some activity about the place.

Property development can often be controversial in established areas, but this one is injecting energy and a bunch of new residents  into a neighbourhood.

Students and staff who normally use our Citycat and Cityferry services to access UQ St Lucia may have to consider alternate travel options following the flooding in Brisbane last week.

Media reports indicate that whilst nearly half of our Citycat terminals suffered only minor damage and could be fixed relatively quickly, remaining terminals had either significant damage or written off. Those terminals most affected include Sydney St, Regatta, Holman Street, Queensland University of Technology, North Quay, West End and St Lucia/University of Queensland.

It was reported recently Lord Mayor Campbell Newman believes it would take more than a year to rebuild some ferry terminals. So we will probably have disruptions to river based public transport for some time to come.

The Eleanor Schonell Bridge in Dutton Park, built for the exclusive use of pedestrians and buses, remains operational. It provides convenient transport across the Brisbane river to and from the St Lucia campus of UQ, making Dutton Park a great option for those looking to rent or buy close to the University of Queensland.

Brisbane City Council buses operate from the Chancellor’s Place bus stop near the J. D. Story Building, St Lucia and the UQ Lakes bus station via the Eleanor Schonell Bridge. Timetables are available from all Student Centres or by phoning TransLink on 131230 or from their website:
