Carved out of a granite quarry, the next stage is being opened up of what is touted as being one of Brisbane’s largest urban transformations.
The second release of home sites at Fraser Property’s The Quarry estate is a new milestone for the $500-million masterplanned project.
It also marks the beginning of the 48ha development’s transition up the Keperra hillside about 9.5km north-west of the Brisbane CBD.
Keperra Quarry has operated for more than 60 years and will progressively curb operations as the development of the residential stages advance.
Frasers Queensland development general manager Scott Ullman said the second release in the Rothelowman-designed community comprised 20 lots that would be ready for home construction in mid-2024.
“Release two is the first collection of home sites that transition up the hillside of The Quarry and with that comes sweeping views of the D’Aguilar Range and beyond,” Ullman said.
“It’s also positioned close to the recently completed cliffside staircase lookout, which has become a popular exercise destination akin to the iconic Kangaroo Point cliffs.”
Nearby resort-style communal amenities, include an entertainer's kitchen, dining room, event spaces, library and work zones. Dubbed ClubQ, it also includes a 25m lap pool with an adjoining sun deck, sunset lounges and a green oval.
Two additional resort-style walk-in pools with an integrated waterfall and kids splash-and-play area, and a private wellness centre featuring a fully equipped gymnasium and meditation room will form part of the precinct’s future amenity.
Of the 20 lots in the second land release, 15 are ridgeline view home sites and the remaining five lots are north-facing.
“Homes will front tree-lined streets and beautifully curated landscapes,” Ullman said. “It will be unrecognisable as a quarry in the fullness of time.”
