PORTSIDE WELCOMES BRISBANE LABEL ‘AS YOU ARE NOW’ Local label ‘as you are now’ has opened its first dedicated store at Portside Wharf. Capturing the spirit of travel, ‘as you are now’ is a label that is not tailored to any specific age, but more to a mindset - featuring pieces that are comfortable and relaxed. It’s the perfect fit for Portside Wharf - complementing our luxurious yet laid-back lifestyle.

NORTHSHORE CONTAINER FESTIVAL IS ON! The Northshore Containerval festival kicked off on Saturday, November 2 and runs every weekend until November 17. Proudly sponsored by Portside Wharf, the festival is a celebration of emerging home grown talent that is set to become an annual event. Along the banks of the Brisbane River, shipping containers have been transformed into a vibrant mix of pop-up retail shops, art studios and performance spaces, providing a platform for new and growing local businesses to showcase their creativity. With stalls including a wine and craft beer bar and a world first collective hub of touring Indigenous art and cultural products, the festival also features My Kitchen Rules grand finalists Jake and Elle Harrison.

COMPLIMENTARY YOGA ON THE WHARF Our free yoga continues throughout November and beyond thanks to Jetts Fitness Hamilton.

new year’s eve parties at portside With live music on the wharf, fireworks at 9pm and midnight shuttle buses to the CBD and The Valley, Portside Wharf is the place to be this New Year’s Eve. Book a table at one of the precinct’s fantastic restaurants or grab a taco from The Burrito Bar or fish and chips from Fresh and Wild and pick a spot along the river to settle in for the night. Cruisers Cafe Bar and Grill is having two New Year’s parties - one from 5pm - 7.30pm and the other from 8pm until late, both with three course dinners and optional beverage packages. If you plan to party the night away, Moda is hosting a funky cocktail party filled with great food, plenty of drinks and enough music to keep you dancing all night long. For something more exotic, Byblos is having a NYE Summer Carnivale where you’ll be transported to a balmy South American summer’s evening as you sit amongst a sea of palm trees, Brazilian carnivale dancers and a Calypso drummer with all your food and beverages included.

BYBLOS SUNDAYS ARE BACK! With the new cocktail menu just launched, Byblos’ famous summer Sunday sessions are back in a big way.

YOUR ONE STOP

playful shades of Summer AT CO DESIGN This season, bright and bold accessories are in plentiful supply and are the perfect addition to classic summer wear. Adding a vivid splash of colour can have a refreshing impact on your wardrobe. Have a play with fun colours like crisp sunshine yellow, zesty green, tamarind and turquoise.

ON THE HUNT FOR SUMMER SEQUINS

URBBANA POLO SHIRTS

Sequins are highly sought after throughout the festive season. Adding a splash of sparkle brings your outfit to life. You can give sequins a casual summer look by teaming them with a cute pair of shorts and sandals or go all out with a fully sequined mini skirt or dress, paired with six inch stilettos and one thing will not change - you will be looking and feeling absolutely fabulous!

Urbbana Men’s Style Studio has a brand new range of polo shirts in store now. Stylish and casual, the new range is ideal for a relaxed family gathering, a long Sunday lunch or a laid-back dinner on a hot summer evening.

Popular fashion boutique Hunt & Gather has some beautiful party dresses in stock, including some glamorous little numbers from fashion label Aleida. Quirky yet luxurious, Aleida features intricate detail, feminine finishes, and an array of bright colours. Designed for the sophisticated but fun girl, Aleida garments are versatile and can be worn for work or play, and can take you from day to night.

The shirts come in 10 different colours including navy, royal blue, yellow, aqua blue, white, black, burgundy, lilac, olive green and purple. The subtle floral and paisley prints featured around the collars add the luxurious Urbbana touch to a summer staple.

TRACEY MATHERS looks TO THE HIGH SEAS Trends come and go, but nautical inspired fashion is one trend with plenty of buoyancy. Nautical stripes are an all time favourite for a chic summer look. It is safe to invest in striped garments and accessories because they’ll always be a classic and they’re also extremely versatile. Not everyone is a fan of striped clothing, so striped accessories like sandals or a sun hat are a great way to embrace this sophisticated look. Tracey Mathers says that while this season is full of vibrant colours, the navy, black, or red and white striped classic is a no fuss staple for summer. Add some striped heels or flats to an outfit, some anchor themed jewellery and you have the perfect summer seaside look. Perfect your look at Tracey Mathers with a huge selection of shoes and accessories for the party season now in-store, plus a stunning new range of Louenhide handbags.

GOOD NEWS FOR INVESTORS AS HAMILTON’S VACANCY RATES DROP The riverside suburb of Hamilton is paying dividends for investors with rental rates increasing by up to $120 per week over the past two years.

“All of its two bedroom apartments have two bathrooms and all apartments, including the one bedders, have a secure car park.

New research by Broad Property Research and Advisory indicates the rental market is undersupplied forcing rental rates up and vacancy rates down.

Mr Broad said while Hamilton itself was in an excellent position as a practical extension of the inner northern riverside suburbs of Newstead, Teneriffe and New Farm, the location of Portside Wharf along the river was a sought-after spot.

The report shows over the past year, Hamilton’s population has grown by 3.9 percent - the highest rate of population growth of all inner-northern suburbs. According to Broad Property Research & Advisory Director Paul Broad there is not enough appropriate rental product to keep up with demand. “The lack of product and Hamilton’s population increase has forced the median weekly rents to rise, with one bedroom apartments increasing by $120 per week over the past two years and two bedroom apartments by $70,” he said. “Gross rental yields for apartments in Hamilton are currently averaging 5.5 percent per annum which is excellent in the current investment climate. “This is also a result of a low vacancy rate which is sitting at just 2.2 percent - a vacancy rate under three percent indicates an undersupplied market.” Mr Broad said developments like Portside Wharf were injecting much needed product into the market. “Promenade Hamilton Apartments at Portside Wharf has been designed to suit long-term residents - both owner occupiers and long-term tenants,” he said.

“These features alone are a major point of difference compared to other new projects currently for sale across inner Brisbane.”

“Portside Wharf has established itself right in the heart of what will become the greater Northshore Hamilton development. It’s also central to the largest two employment nodes in Brisbane - the CBD and Fortitude Valley business centres that contain around 100,000 employees, and the Australia Trade Coast with an additional 60,000 employees,” he said. “Add to that excellent transport connectivity and infrastructure, and a mixed-use development on your doorstep and you’ve got a lifestyle opportunity that’s attractive to a wide range of tenants.”

“When you’re smack in the middle of key economic areas, six kilometres from the CBD, in close proximity to the airport and perched on the river, your location will always be desirable.” Portside Wharf is now home to four completed residential towers with a limited number of two and three bedroom apartments still available in Promenade priced from $515,000. Pinnacle at Portside Wharf is the latest residential building to be released with construction due to commence in the coming months. The riverfront precinct is now home to more than 30 retailers including Dendy Cinema, IGA supermarket, Jetts Fitness and Ella Bache, as well as a number of boutique retailers including Urbbana Men’s Style Studio, and some of Brisbane’s best restaurants including Sono, Gusto da Gianni and Belvedere.

For further information, visit the Portside Wharf Sales & Information Centre 39 Hercules Street, open between 10am and 4pm daily, call 07 3630 1666 or visit portsidewharf.com.au
