YOUR GUIDE TO PORTSIDE WHARF
Between Sunday yoga on the wharf, lunchtime Pilates and the energetic team at Jetts Fitness who are eager to help you achieve your goals, Portside Wharf is certainly using winter to whip itself into shape for the warmer weather! Health and fitness is such an important part of life so Portside Wharf is working out ways to give people more options to work it into their daily schedule through complimentary weekend yoga, conveniently timed classes at Studio Pilates and
one on one personal training sessions at Jetts Fitness. Fresh, healthy food is also on the menu at Portside with healthy options popping up all over the precinct - try ‘the naked burrito’ at The Burrito Bar or the Japanese hot pot at Sono for a meal that’s high in taste, but low in calories. And of course there is more fresh fashion and fine food then you can poke a stick at, so keep reading for all the latest trends and tips as we take you inside Portside.
FREE YOGA ON THE WHARF
Our complimentary yoga classes have been very popular - even with the rainy weather. A huge thank you to those who have turned up to pay homage to the sun...even when the sun wasn’t returning the favour! But rain, hail or shine, it’s always a good time to refresh your mind, body and soul so come down and partake in some seriously invigorating yoga that will help improve your posture, build strength and reduce stress. Join us every fortnight at 9am on the wharf with a qualified Jetts Fitness yoga instructor. Remember to bring your own yoga mat!

Urbbana’s Great Gatsby Style Gatsby themed parties are all the rage in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane right now. The classic 1920’s style is timeless, suave and completely on-trend. The tailored blazer, coloured bow tie, pocket square, suspenders and hat have enjoyed a resurgence over the last few seasons, but the box office hit The Great Gatsby has given this chic trend a boost and it looks like it’s here to stay for a while. Although director Baz Luhrmann has taken some artistic licence with the fashions in the film, it just goes to show how one can easily reinvent the classic look by adding a few choice items to an ensemble. Gentlemen looking for the perfect 1920s-esque look will find an extensive range of outfits and accessories at Urbbana Men’s Style Studio, which are guaranteed to add a touch of sophistication and refined elegance, reminiscent of the great Jay Gatsby.

A little piece of heaven
We’re slowly approaching the end of winter and although we are all working hard to keep the win ter weight off (or at least we tell ourselves we are) there is nev er a better time of year to devour a luscious dessert and Mo da has lead us to temptation with a sensational trans-seasonal des sert. The vanilla posset, compressed melon coconut biscuit is a delicious mix of cream, sugar, lemon juice and seeds from scraped vanilla pods...yum. Best of all, it’s served with fruit so it has to be good for you... right? Why not try this little piece of heaven at home. Ingredients: 900ml double cream 250g sugar Juice of 3 lemons Seeds from scraped vanilla pods Method: • Bring cream and sugar to the boil with scraped vanilla pod for 3 minutes • Take off stove and allow to stan d until warm enough to taste • Add lemon juice and instantly the texture will thicken • Strain to jug and pour into clear glasses or moulds for effect • Allow to set in fridge for 24 – 48 hours • Serve with fresh fruit… Moda Head Chef Stephen Nardo vacuum seals fruit and serves in compressed form to crea te clean line cubes as pictured but you could do a similar concept at home using a sharp knife.

STELLAR SALES STIMULATE BUYER INTEREST Sales have increased by 120 per cent at Promenade Hamilton Apartments which has notched up more than double the sales for the same period last year. Promenade at Portside Wharf has sold 20 apartments totalling almost $10.5 million over the last six months - up from eight apartments at $4.7 million up to July in 2012. Brookfield Residential Properties Project Director Lee Butterworth says the figures indicates there is an increase in confidence in the Brisbane market and astute buyers are realising that there are limited opportunities remaining to secure a luxury apartment in Promenade. “The recent run of sales in Promenade means it’s now 90 per cent sold so buyers need to be quick if they want to snap up one of the remaining one plus study or two bedroom apartments,” he said.
“Off the back of these outstanding sales, we gained the confidence to launch our next residential stage, Pinnacle at Portside Wharf which has posted $32 million in sales since April. “This is a very encouraging sign for the Brisbane property market.” With total sales of $93 million, Promenade comprises 172 luxury apartments over 16 levels featuring premium finishes such as stone benchtops, European appliances, large balconies and a car space. It is the fourth residential building to be completed at the Portside Wharf mixed used community along the river in Hamilton.
BUYERS SNAP UP TWO BEDROOM APARTMENTS AT PINNACLE Two bedroom apartments at Portside Wharf’s latest residential stage - Pinnacle at Portside - are proving popular with savvy buyers looking to secure a quality riverfront apartment. Starting from $545,000 and sized between 88sqm 183sqm, they feature two bathrooms, generous balconies, European appliances and ducted air-conditioning, with an undercover secure car space. Brookfield Residential Properties Project Director Lee Butterworth says buyers are trending towards two bedroom apartments due the extra living space and entertaining areas. “Two bedroom apartments are appealing to all market segments; downsizers wanting an apartment lifestyle with less maintenance, professionals looking for extra space for a home office, and young couples seeking a luxury apartment with extra space,” he said.
“The apartments in Pinnacle at Portside Wharf represent exceptional value with many offering stunning river and city views that can never be built out.” The apartments feature open plan living and floor to ceiling windows with spacious balconies to make the most of the stunning views. Residents have exclusive access to the building’s rooftop terrace with pool, barbeque area and gymnasium, as well as the peace of mind that comes with having onsite security and management. Once complete, Pinnacle will house 15 levels of premium apartments, penthouses and terrace homes, offering a variety of floor plans to suit different needs.
