Silverstone Developments rushes to support Queensland arts

Silverstone Developments has cemented its position as a major supporter of arts in Queensland, donating almost $80,000 to Artslink Queensland, a not-for-profit organisation that delivers a variety of programs and services that connect Queenslanders with vibrant, creative and collaborative arts and culture activity.

Silverstone's relationship with Artslink Queensland began a few years ago, when the Brisbane-based privately-owned property developer purchased the non-profit’s previous headquarters as a development site. Silverstone then worked with Artslink Queensland to help find a suitable new headquarters for the vital arts organisation; a search that resulted in Artslink Queensland and Silverstone living side-by-side in Silverstone's flagship commercial development at 24 Macquarie Street in Brisbane's arts hub, Teneriffe. 

Silverstone Developments' Managing Director Troy Daffy said the relationship was an important part of Silverstone’s community partnerships program.

"We see real value in what Artslink Queensland do in terms of bringing the arts to regional Queensland" said Mr Daffy. Here in Brisbane we are extremely fortunate to have access to amazing artists and cultural activity, particularly in the cultural hubs of New Farm, Teneriffe and South Brisbane, and while life in regional Queensland offers a variety of amazing experiences, one area where it can miss out is access to the arts. 

"We believe Artslink Queensland’s cultural programs and services in regional Queensland are absolutely vital in supporting regional economic growth, civic engagement, social equity and cultural vitality for Queensland communities."

Artslink Queensland CEO and Artistic Director, Arthur Frame AM, said Silverstone Development’s philanthropic gift enabled the arts organisation to focus on what it does best.

"Silverstone Developments have generously donated almost $80,000 to Artslink Queensland to offset the costs of running our Mr Rush Espresso Bar, here in Teneriffe.  This financial support allows us to direct our funds and energies to supporting artists and arts programs throughout Queensland."

Mr. Rush Espresso Bar is a social enterprise venture, with all profits supporting Artslink Queensland’s programs and service in regional Queensland. Every dollar it earns helps the not-for-profit deliver arts experiences to schools and communities throughout Queensland, while at the same time supporting artists and actors.  The Mr. Rush business also acts as an arts hub, where organisations feel comfortable to hold casual meetings and host events such as workshops and performances.

Fast facts:
  • Artslink Queensland’s previous headquarters at Dutton Park has been re-developed as a stylish residential development, Vertice Apartments.  Construction on Vertice is now complete and all apartments have been sold. 
  • The Mr Rush Espresso Bar is named after Artslink Queensland Associate Artist and Academy Award-winning Australian actor, Geoffrey Rush AC.

Silverstone Developments strikes another deal on commercial site in Bowen Hills

Silverstone Developments has rounded out a successful commercial project at 121 Abbotsford Road, Bowen Hills.
Stage one of the development saw Probuild Civil purchase a parcel of land to build a 600m2 extension to their existing building. The design and construction work is being undertaken by Blackwatch Projects.

Under stage two of the development, APC Logistics has acquired the remaining land parcel for their new Brisbane headquarters. Silverstone Developments secured approval for a two storey, 1190m2 office building and Blackwatch Projects is currently negotiating the design and construction work.

Troy Daffy, Silverstone Developments' Managing Director, said "We are delighted with the result and believe the strategic location of the site has been a key factor in rounding out another successful commercial project for Silverstone Developments."

Both transactions were negotiated by Neville Jensen of Ray White Metro.

Repeat buyers help drive Silverstone's 100% pre-launch pre-sales

17 March 2014

Silverstone Developments has cemented its reputation as one of Brisbane's most reliable developers, with contracts taken on all 15 apartments in their new Lucca apartment complex on Brunswick Street in New Farm before the development's public launch.

"We are yet to even launch Lucca to the public, but all 15 apartments are already spoken for," said Silverstone Developments' Managing Director, Troy Daffy.

"It is a great sign that buyers are taking notice that when we say we are going to deliver a quality product in a certain timeframe, we meet that commitment," said Mr Daffy. "In fact, two of our buyers in Lucca are repeat Silverstone clients; one previously purchased an apartment in Vivid Kangaroo Point, and the other in Vertice, Dutton Park. Another of our repeat clients bought in Vivid New Farm, Vivid Kangaroo Point and Siena Milton.

"Obviously the improvement in the Brisbane market, New Farm's reputation as a desirable investment and owner-occupier location, and the hunger from interstate property investors for Brisbane stock have all contributed, but we do believe that our reputation for real development outcomes comes in to play as well. Buyers are also drawn to the combination of a luxury apartment and an affordable price tag."

Mr Daffy said his team were looking forward to bringing new stock to market over the coming months.

"With our other residential developments - Sanctuary on Oxford at Bulimba, Siena at Milton and Vertice at Dutton Park - all sold out, we were looking forward to bringing some new stock to the Brisbane market, but with Lucca we didn't even get to have a public launch!

"Fortunately we have another three of four developments we are working very hard to bring to market this year, and we look forward to unveiling these over the coming months."

Lucca will be located at 676 Brunswick Street in Brisbane's iconic New Farm, offering some of Brisbane's best restaurants, cafes and retail shops, and a major supermarket just 400m away. The building is complemented by two retail tenancies on the ground floor.

Construction on Lucca commenced in February and is anticipated to take less than 12 months to complete.
