6/758 Ann Street, FORTITUDE VALLEY
From your first foot in the door, the sense of soul within this New York style, brick bolthole apartment captivates. Carefully considered refurbishments are evident through the design palette of energising colour and architectural detailing,quality selections evoke a sense of personality, security and warmth.
The New York narrative and charm are further cultivated as aspects of the former textile warehouse identity have been cleverly and authentically integrated throughout the restoration. Industrial origins of the space are celebrated in traditional high ceilings, original brass floor plates and a loading dock window with a honeycomb yellow roller door. Internal walls are lined with double cavity brick, and honest concrete details remain expressed on the polished, hardwood timber floors. The open plan apartment has a newly refurbished kitchen, loft-style bedroom, bathroom, internal laundry and walk-in-robe.
A transformative living and dining space offer a locality to grow innovation yet still harness private living to suit the intersecting demand of working from home. Flexibility can be found in this space with ease of movement from domesticated to professional tasks, perfectly tailored to this new and everchanging dynamic. A generous, separate renovated kitchen showcases the simple urban quality of the apartment.
This premium refurbishment includes carefully curated pops of colour - including the luscious red front door, loading dock roller door, excessive two-way cabinetry and the ‘Brooklyn’ style tiled bathroom. Dark, timber accents and a newly laid ‘Japan black’ stained plywood floor compliment the fine, industrial black appliances and fixtures. Permanent rattan textures soften the industrial, modernist aesthetic to create a place of warmth and character whilst adding privacy. The building itself offers the main Ann Street entrance in addition to a separate entrance off a private laneway for increased security, and a shared rooftop balcony for entertainment purposes is a welcomed bonus.
From a commercial perspective, the area has large growth opportunity and the potential for exposure, as it is easily accessible to the thriving inner-city business and arts hub. The double cavity brick walls of the secluded building provide solitude and privacy for those looking to work from home within an otherwise busy (yet convenient) precinct. The pattern of long-term residencies demonstrates the rarity and sentimentality of the easy-living loft and lifestyle it attracts. This showcase apartment located to the rear would certainly be the standout apartment now in this tightly held complex.
Appreciation of urban modernist living has taken form in this rare, meticulously designed industrial space imprinted beautifully as an inner-city oasis. Close proximity to the Brisbane CBD (15-minute walk), 2 minutes from the train, a short walk to the ferry terminal and a bus stop outside your front door. An array of laneway cafes, sophisticated bars with live music and contemporary boutique stores offer vibrant life to the area. The instant access to these bustling streets is juxtaposed by the quiet and private retreat that 6/758 Ann Street blesses its occupiers with.
