Sydney resident Angus Terry is looking forward to joining other residents moving into Vue Terrace Homes next year, having just purchased a brand new home off the plan in the Robina Group project. As well as a brand new home, Angus will also be enjoying a brand new workplace right across the road – Angus and his family recently purchased a CBDRobina development site and have plans to build an Anytime Fitness gym.
The 2,300sqm site earmarked for Anytime Fitness is across the road from Vue Terrace Homes, making the ‘commute’ to work a literal walk in the park for Mr Terry, who will be relocating with his partner to operate the new gymnasium.
Mr Terry said he and his partner were eagerly seeking a change from bustling Sydney and settled on Robina as the ideal location and Vue Terrace Homes as the perfect new address. Proximity to so many fantastic services and amenities were a major drawcard for the couple, especially Robina City Parklands which border Vue Terrace Homes and are due for a multi-million upgrade.
“We are going to be working hard so we wanted a place that we could come back to and really relax, so Vue’s beautiful pool and barbeque area and its direct access into Robina City Parklands was a huge drawcard. he said.
“Neighbouring a $15 million 17 hectare city park is really exciting for us. As a young, active couple it is so important to us to spend time outdoors.”
“We have always dreamed of living a short drive from the beach and when I was growing up we came to the Gold Coast for family holidays so I know the area quite well,”
“The most appealing thing about Robina is the fact that while it has grown dramatically over the years and matured as a CBD, it still has a great community-oriented atmosphere where people are friendly and support one another.
“Robina is also highly accessible which gives it the dual appeal of being well positioned for both business and lifestyle.
“We love that everything we need is within easy reach – we have access to some of the city’s best dining and shopping options at Robina Town Centre, can catch a game at Cbus Super Stadium or take a train to Brisbane for the day from Robina station which is a short walk from Vue.” Angus said.
Mr Terry said the decision to call Vue home was not only due to its proximity to Anytime Fitness, which is expected start construction in the new year, but also the community’s impressive features and facilities.
“After an exhaustive look at properties that didn’t fit the bill – we found Vue and it ticked all of the boxes for us,” he said.
“We were instantly sold on the clean, contemporary design, quality fittings and layout of the homes and could see ourselves really enjoying the resort-style facilities.
Mr Terry and his partner are a prime example of the strong surge in interstate migration currently reflected in the Gold Coast real estate market.
Migration to Gold Coast City continues to push the city’s population up, with the annual increase hitting its highest level in ten years in the year ending 2017 with figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics showing an increase of over 15,000 people.
Robina Group sales manager Azura Griffen said Sydney and Melbourne purchasers recognised the value on offer in the Gold Coast market.
“We are seeing an increasing number of buyers from the southern capitals purchasing at Vue Terrace Homes – contributing to the total $83 million in sales at the project to date,” she said.
“Buyers from interstate are attracted to the lifestyle benefits on offer in Robina. Our education facilities in particular are a major drawcard – Robina is home to Gold Coast’s top two private schools and Bond University. The extensive range of shops, restaurants, entertainment and transport options paired with the comparably affordable home prices are extremely attractive to interstate buyers.”
Ms Griffen said Robina was consistently among the top-performing Gold Coast areas on a number of key measures including values, capital gains, rental rates and yields.
“Robina is a continually growing and evolving area which is attractive to both investors and owner occupiers alike. There is a $1 billion pipeline of public and private investment underway here and our population and workforce are due to double by 2050 as a result,” she said.
