An ultra-luxurious $100 million 39-residence development in bluechip Brisbane is set to ignite the high-end of the market when it launches next weekend.

The Oxlade is the spectacular first project of Queensland Prime Developments — the brainchild of Kate Seymour and her brothers Trent and Ben, grandchildren of veteran Queensland developer Kevin Seymour.

The collaborative project with Seymour Group at 80-84 Oxlade Drive in the premier riverfront suburb of New Farm. Sales open on June 1, with director Ben Seymour confirming construction would begin at the end of the year.

“We have fielded an extremely strong level of inquiry and interest in this ultra high-end product and are really looking forward to launching the project,” he said.

The luxury residences at The Oxlade will be split between two-bedroom apartments with media room overlooking the city and three bedroom units with media room overlooking the Brisbane River.

Prices for the two bedders start at $1.4 million, with each having a two-car lockup garage, while the larger apartments have a three-car lockup garage and start at $3.4 million.

As well, there will be two penthouses that each have a five-car lockup garage with prices starting at $7 million.

Trent Seymour said all enclosed garages were “very rare around the area”, even in luxury developments.

“You get your own storage and you can lock up your cars. Drivers want to be able to lock them up and leave.”

Residents at The Oxlade will have five-star services including a full-time concierge with Mr Seymour describing the building as having “a level of finish and amenity never before seen in Brisbane”.

“A concierge will be a full-time feature, someone to bring up your shopping when it arrives, walk your dog, anything your heart may desire. I think that’s the way the market is going, particularly in Brisbane. If you are paying that much for a product, you want to be able to come home and have the sort of hotel feel to it. That’s what we’re going with, it’s meant to have the feeling of coming home to a five-star hotel.”

Architects Bureau Proberts have designed a rooftop wet-edge pool, with lounges and dining room overlooking the city.

“We spent a lot of time on that. Residents can have their own wine cellar box up there, have a chef up to cook them dinner. I think that will be one of the most amazing places to be.”

Kevin Seymour, grandfather of the QPI directors who lives in New Farm, said the suburb was “so close to the city” with good amenities and infrastructure.

“You could dine out every night of the week for the next 12 months and probably not have to go to the same restaurant twice,” he said of the restaurant offerings in the area.

Agents Sarah Hackett and Jason Chaffey of Place Bulimba were bracing for inquiries with a website set up at

‘Luxury apartments in boutique developments are in high demand. Purchasers are looking for quality and size with minimal neighbours,” Ms Hackett said.

‘New Farm is one of Brisbane’s most iconic suburbs offering some of the best lifestyle and riverfront living opportunities.’

‘At this end of the market, purchasers are looking for amenities to accommodate their lifestyle and make living easier.”
