Dark timber veneer cabinetry is minimal and sculptural with refined detail further reflected in bronze and metal shadowline features.” Spyre Group director Andrew Malouf said over 50 per cent of the apartments were sold with the average sale price at $1.83m.

Picture: Supplied The first development on Oxlade Drive in 10 years – Zahra, a luxury 22-apartment project by Spyre Group – has begun construction this week. Picture: SuppliedCONSTRUCTION has begun on a new $41 million “bejewelled” residential development in one of Brisbane’s most popular inner-city suburbs.Zahra by Spyre Group, believed to be the first development on Oxlade Drive in New Farm in a decade, is geared at the high end market aimed at executives and high end downsizers. It has a prime position a block back from the river and facing the popular Merthyr Bowls Club.Hutchinson Builders kicked off work yesterday on the property which was designed by Cottee Parker Architects to combine “the comforts of a home and five star hotel”. There will be a calming Zen garden on the roof. Picture: Supplied“We’ve essentially taken elements reserved for penthouses and offered them throughout all apartments. We’ve thought about how people will use these spaces and delivered the convenience of lock and leave lifestyle with the elements often compromised when downsizing to an apartment.”He said Zahra would have a “presence” making it stand out against other developments in Brisbane: “From the wallpapered features and optional buffalo leather walls, to the wide format Danish white oak timber flooring out the full height sliding doors to the majestic river and city aspects, Zahra raises the expectation for luxury living”. The apartments are three and four bedroom aimed at downsizers. Picture: Suppliedlast_img read more

first_imgJoey Gallo has All-Star hopes in his fifth season with the Rangers. But the outfielder could see significant time off the diamond after leaving Saturday’s game early.Gallo suffered an oblique strain and has been placed on the 10-day IL, the team announced Sunday. He is scheduled to undergo further evaluation, including an MRI, manager Chris Woodward confirmed. MLB trade rumors: Mariners ‘trying to trade everyone’ “It tightened up on him,” Woodward said, via The Dallas Morning News. “He actually felt it throwing and in that last at-bat. He swung, didn’t like it and the next swing that’s when I came out. He creates so much torque in that body, even if it’s a small oblique issue, I don’t want that to turn into a major one.”In 170 at-bats this season, Gallo is hitting .276/.421/.653 with 17 homers and 41 RBIs.
