Lume is the jewel in the DevCorp crown

THE Kangaroo Point skyline is set to be transformed when the fitness-focused boutique tower Lume is built in 2019.

Director of Brisbane-based developer Toni Thornton said Lume was a 13 level development to set a new standard in the  inner city.

Lume’s rooftop lounge has an infinity-edge pool and gym, as well as landscaped gardens and sweeping vistas of the Brisbane city skyline.

“Lume is the jewel in the DevCorp crown,”   Ms Thornton said.

Of the 119 high-end apartments and luxe penthouses in Lume, there’s 40 per cent still available to fitness minded residents.

The onsite gym is a standout feature as it’s been fully equipped for athletes by Ms Thorntons, a keen triathlete who loves to swim, ride and run half ironman distance events.

The rooftop terrace boasts a top of the line training swim jet in the roof top pool for its homeowners to train on-site.

“We were really intent on investing heavily in the quality of the gym plus there’s a recovery zone for yoga and a steam room. This environment has been built with other athletes in mind to take advantage of Brisbane’s exceptional outdoor lifestyle,” she said.

Keen cyclists and community fundraisers, Devcorp is  a sponsor of the Brisbane BMW and Westside BMW Ride for Life Challenge taking place on October 29 in the river city.

Lume had a very successful launch two years ago and then underwent a five-month redesign to change the floor plates of the unsold stock to allow buyers to reconfigure the plans as their needs required.

“We redesigned for to respond to the local downsizer market and also those young families moving into the city but still requiring the functional space of a family home without the maintenance,” Ms Thornton said.

“It’s a building of refined luxury. This is our signature project and it’s an attractive mix of facility and luxury and refinement.”

A licensed builder with 25 years of development experience, DevCorp managing director Murray Thornton leads the DevCorp team.

“Murray’s eye for detail and his commitment to continued excellence leaves a defining mark on each and every DevCorp development. He’s a classically trained carpenter and very focused on the small things and getting the solar aspect right.”

The floor to ceiling glass walls in Lume will enable its homeowners to enjoy their views without the elements.

“In Queensland that can be very important as you’ll be living in a great location which is so easy to get to either of the coasts with great access to the main road infrastructure and the airport too.”

The display suite is open at  25 Shafston Avenue, Kangaroo Point.

Ray White New Farm agent Tom Lyne said there had never been a better time to consider apartment living in Brisbane.

“Lume has been cleverly designed around putting your lifestyle first, with the amenity available for residents first class and the location being on the doorstep of the cultural hubs in Brisbane. We anticipate strong interest in these three bed residences, because Brisbane is currently experiencing a shortage of quality apartment offerings.”
