Once again, Opalyn Property Group chose the location well, as Chermside is one of the fastest growing regions in Brisbane. According to a document prepared by Brisbane City Council, in 2026, the suburb will be “regionally significant, thriving centre that celebrates its distinctive identity, history, and subtropical character, while embracing growth and the opportunities it provides.”
In the meantime, Chermside already features a unique blend of fashion, entertainment and amenities that has made it a central hub for the north side of Brisbane. The suburb continues to grow every year, and everything it has to offer is within walking distance of the Savile Row Apartments.
Westfield Chermside, for example, is Queensland’s largest shopping centre with more than 400 stores. The area also features two large hospitals and a specialist medical centre, two major parks as well as a wealth of open green spaces, and a number of new restaurants, cinemas, retail outlets, and a library and aquatic centre.
Chermside is also serviced by a considerable bus network, which now utilises the new CLEM7 Tunnel and Translink’s Busway.
From an investor’s perspective, Playfield Street Chermside is particularly appealing due to its growing population and the growing investment in public and private infrastructure that has supported the demand to reside there. Relatedly, the area is also one of the largest employment nodes on Brisbane’s north side, thanks to Westfield Chermside, the many health institutions in the area, and the close proximity to Brisbane Airport and Brisbane CBD.
As a result of the growing dwelling demand in Chermside, prices have also grown. Between 2007 and 2012, the median rent for two-bedroom apartments increased 34 per cent, while the median rent for one bedroom apartments increased 38.9 per cent. When compared with older stock, new two- bedroom and one-bedroom apartments have achieved 15 per cent and 23 per cent premiums respectively.
Moving forward, Opalyn Property Group will continue to identify similarly amazing opportunities for investors and owner-occupiers alike.
Already, the company has many more unit developments in the planning stages, and will continue to provide outstanding products with finishes and attention to detail that is second-to-none. They will also maintain their family-based reputation for integrity, honesty, and quality.
