West End Brisbane Community

By Sandy Taylor

While Brisbane has been famous for its Queenslanders, back yards and sunny suburbs, there is no escaping that the city, with a population approaching 2.5 million people. While a huge influx of residents was expected with the implementation of the Kurilpa project, 4101 is already one of the most populated areas in greater Brisbane. The 2011 Census saw the population of the 4101 region at more than 19,000, and in 2013, Highgate Hill was Brisbane’s third most populated suburb, just behind New Farm and Kangaroo Point.

According to NIEIR Employment Forecasts, another 27,500 jobs will be created between the Brisbane CBD and South Brisbane by 2031. Increased Cycle paths, train stations, City Glider and City Cat stops have been put in place .

The community feeling of West End has long been a selling point for those moving into the area. Unlike satellite suburbs popping up on the city’s fringe, these new apartments give residents instant access to an established and vibrant community. West End and South Brisbane are famous for their bars, markets, quirky retail scene and exceptional restaurants and cafes, making the precinct more attractive for young professionals who are keen to live amongst the vibrant culture of a world-class city.

A Great place to come & live!
