Views from The Duke will be pitch-perfect

Unless a roof is built over the Gabba, residents of The Duke (a Blue Sky Private Real Estate Development) are all but guaranteed a lifetime of free access to events held at the stadium.

The recently launched 15-story Kangaroo Point  development on the corner of Vulture and Duke streets will have a tiered, rooftop grandstand with direct views onto the pitch.

“It’s unique, that’s what a lot of the sales agents have loved,” Blue Sky’s marketing manager Kate McMahon said. “Apartments where you can see the cricket pitch, how cool is that? We’ve got some people who are cricket buffs and they’re blown away by it.”

Architects Rothelowman have designed the development with 125 one, two and three-bedroom apartments targeted at owner-occupiers.

“A big part of the attraction is that the development is north-facing to the CBD and then you’ve got south-facing views to the Gabba, so there’s no bad aspect,” Ms McMahon said. “We’ve totally maximised access to those view corridors by providing a huge amount of glass in floor-to-ceiling windows.”

Ms McMahon is quick to differentiate The Duke from developments across the river in the bustling hubs of Newstead and Teneriffe. “We are very, very picky with the suburbs we go into,” she said. “We have targeted areas such as Kangaroo Point, Woolloongabba, Stones Corner that we believe have huge potential and in those pockets are limited opportunities for developers to come in and do high-density residential.

“We are really surrounded by these low one, two-level character residential houses, so there are protected views. Anything between us and the city in these side streets is all council-restricted because they’re trying to protect the heritage in the area.”

WHAT A VIEW: The Duke development will have a rooftop grandstand.
