KELVIN GROVE- The Quiet Achiever

Kelvin Grove is attracting residents & investors with lots of new Apartments being built in Kelvin
Grove & surrounding inner city suburbs.

Located just 2 klms form the Brisbane CBD, Kelvin Grove has always been a suburb full of mainly post-war cottages & 1970’s Apartment buildings & also home to a lot of QUT students. Recognising Kelvin Grove’s strategic location the Queensland government has invested over $150 million to assist in the creation of the new Urban village at Kelvin Grove.

Kelvin Grove has been transformed into a vibrant place with beautiful new Apartments & the University is second to none. Kelvin Grove is so friendly & the Restaurants have an excellent reputation. Kelvin Grove Village Centre is serviced by Woolworths & numerous speciality stores.

Kelvin Grove has become a vibrant new urban area. That vibrancy along with the proximity to QUT University is what is attracting not only many residents & investors but also many students as well. The European village feel may have something to do with Kelvin Grove having a young population. Its median age of 27 is ten years below the national average.

It is typical of the young urban professional that works in the CBD to buy their first Apartment in Kelvin Grove after having rented an apartment there while studying at QUT. Victoria Park residences are selling as Kelvin Grove’s Best valued Apartments at around $364,000.They are 2 bedroom Apartments in an elevated position with perfect north easterly views.

Noel Milne from BPI, Brisbane Central Building & Pest Inspections has done quite a few inspections at Kelvin Grove recently & said that Kelvin Grove being so close to the Brisbane CBD & offering new apartments for less than $350,000 was too good to miss. Noel said that Kelvin Grove was popular with the first home buyers because Kelvin Grove is offering good value for money.
