Barca apartments in Bulimba.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home5 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor5 hours ago“Moving forward — during the next phase of the inner Brisbane apartment market cycle — we see the current trends towards lower project yields and larger apartments increasing,” Mr Matusik said.“There is a need to build more owner-resident oriented housing stock across inner Brisbane that is largely fuelled by residents looking to downsize and, importantly, stay in their area.“There are very few new apartment projects that adequately fulfil this market segment’s wish list, which includes a small project; well-proportioned and designed; and in a prime position, such as on the Brisbane River.”Bulimba is identified in the report as a suburb with rising demand from downsizers.The report shows a fall in recent months in the number of dwellings available for resale and rent in Bulimba, and very limited new housing choices in the area, with just three months’ supply in the pipeline and very few potential development sites.Mr Matusik points to just a handful of boutique projects on Bulimba’s riverfront that will deliver apartments to suit discerning downsizers. Amara Residences in Bulimba.Representing a combined total of 87 new residences, they are: Amara Residences, with 13 two and three-bedroom apartments; Barca, with 31 units; 29-31 Byron Street with 16 apartments; and 27 units in The Boatyard.“This strongly suggests that, unlike other locales across inner Brisbane, the Bulimba area is undersupplied with appropriate housing choice,” Mr Matusik said.“There is a large local baby boomer population, many of whom are potentially looking to downsize into an apartment in the same area.“We believe there is considerable local pent-up demand, as most locals cannot find the appropriate product to downsize to.” The Boatyard Bulimba is one of only a few boutique apartment complexes in Bulimba where demand is going to outstrip supply.LARGE apartments in boutique complexes in the inner-city are hot property as the latest research report shows demand for these apartments will soon outstrip supply.The latest Matusik Property Insights report finds that while Brisbane’s wider unit market is entering a downturn, large apartments in small inner-city projects are holding firm with demand from downsizing owner occupiers on the rise.The report finds that boutique apartments stack up financially with small projects in prime positions — on the river, in high-street locations or with uninterrupted views of the CBD — delivering better gains in 2016 (3.9 per cent) than other inner city apartments (-1 per cent).It also shows that larger apartments are the ones to buy with better resell value than their smaller counterparts, with three-bedroom apartments across inner Brisbane averaging gains of 9.6 per cent per annum over the past decade, more than double the average of 4.6 per cent. Report author Michael Matusik said inner city locals looking to downsize locally, more couples without children staying in or returning to the inner-city and fewer people living alone were contributing to the growing demand for boutique apartment living in the city.He said the inner-city apartment market was going through a quick self correction with 40 per cent of scheduled projects shelved over the past 12 months, and what he predicts will be a rise in boutique-style apartment development.

“The frustration is how we produced what we produced last week and what we produced today. “The reason we’re in the bottom three is pretty evident today. “We’ve had five or six really glorious opportunities and at this level you’ve got to take them.” Victory for Tottenham means they take another step closer towards qualifying for the Europa League next season. A win at Everton next weekend will see Mauricio Pochettino’s side finish at least sixth in the table, and they could climb to fifth if Liverpool slip up at Stoke. “We deserved the victory and the most important thing for us is to stay in the same position in the table, to finish fifth or sixth,” Pochettino said. “I was very disappointed with the first half because we can play better and our energy wasn’t good. “In the second half though we changed and we scored two good goals.” In a message to the fans before kick-off, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy pledged his support to Pochettino, insisting the Argentinian needed a season “to assess his squad and instil his training and playing philosophy.” Tottenham’s challenge for the top four has fizzled away in recent weeks but Pochettino insists his players will come back stronger. “Always when you start with a new club and a new philosophy and a new group, it is not easy in the first season,” Pochettino added. “We need to be more consistent next season, we need to work hard and try to create a strong group.” Second-half goals from Nacer Chadli and Danny Rose mean the Tigers are two points adrift of safety and must win at home to Bruce’s old club Manchester United next weekend. Even victory against Louis van Gaal’s side may not be enough, however, with Newcastle and Sunderland currently two and three points ahead respectively. Sunderland, who also have a game in hand at Arsenal on Wednesday, visit Chelsea on the last day while Newcastle host West Ham. “It’s not lost,” Bruce said. “We’ve got to beat Man United and I haven’t done that in 17 years. I’ve got to turn the tables. “Maybe there’s a twist in it, maybe Man United owe me something after wrecking my knee and my hip and my ankle. We have to try to be positive.” The defeat to Tottenham capped a miserable seven days for Hull, who lost at home to Burnley last weekend before being hit with the news Jake Livermore had tested positive for cocaine. Livermore, who has been suspended by the Football Association and his club, missed the match at White Hart Lane and could face a ban of up to two years. “The week has been arguably the worst week I’ve had in terms of the result last week and then of course the shocking news of what fell on our laps on Wednesday,” Bruce said. “The team and their response today has been magnificent and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. “I couldn’t have asked for them to play any better after the woeful performance last week. Hull manager Steve Bruce insisted all was not lost despite a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham leaving his side on the brink of relegation from the Barclays Premier League. Press Association
NEW YORK — Syracuse has its chance to show Pittsburgh what it can do at full strength. With a deeper bench and a knockdown shooter waiting to wreak havoc on the arc, the Orange takes on a different appearance, one the Panthers haven’t seen yet.No. 19 Syracuse plays Pittsburgh in the third round of the Big East tournament on Thursday at 2 p.m. at Madison Square Garden. The Panthers, who earned a double-bye with their fourth-place regular-season finish, beat the Orange 65-55 on Feb. 2 in front of a raucous Petersen Events Center crowd. Some of Syracuse’s biggest deficiencies bubbled to the surface in that game, but they can’t reappear for the Orange to earn revenge against Pittsburgh.“Pittsburgh, they beat us pretty good. They got on the glass on us,” Syracuse guard Michael Carter-Williams said. “They just bullied us, really. We’re going to have to come to play.Back on Feb. 2, the Panthers crashed the boards for a 39-24 rebounding advantage. They shot 48 percent from the field, and managed to hold the Orange to only 36.7-percent shooting. Pittsburgh also played 10 players, and outscored Syracuse 31-3 in bench points.At the time, the Orange’s roster was thin. DaJuan Coleman was still out after having knee surgery in late January. Syracuse’s biggest loss at the time, though, was James Southerland, who was ineligible due to an academic issue.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU played seven players, with Baye Moussa Keita and Trevor Cooney off the bench. Cooney played 17 minutes and never attempted a single shot. Pittsburgh, meanwhile, had four different players score at least six points each off the bench.Now Syracuse hopes having Southerland back in the lineup leads to a different result Thursday. If his performance on Wednesday is any indication, it will. Southerland scored 20 points against Seton Hall, and went 6-of-9 from the arc.Against a gritty Pittsburgh team, he could be key for Syracuse.“They make you fight for every point,” SU forward C.J. Fair said. “This time we’ve got James in our lineup and James, he stretches the floor so that’s going to be big for getting their bigs away from the basket so it can make it easier for us to get offensive rebounds and stuff.”Pittsburgh, which has won seven of its last 10 games, is an extremely physical defensive team. The Panthers are second in the Big East in scoring margin at plus-14.7, and are first in the league in rebounding defense at 28.3 boards per game.Only one Pittsburgh player, Tray Woodall, averages double-digit points per game, but the Panthers’ defense makes up for it.Syracuse played eight players on Wednesday, but Jerami Grant and Trevor Cooney played a total of six minutes. The Orange didn’t need much more than that in the slow-paced game against the Pirates.Syracuse is going to need its bench against the physical Panthers, though. At full strength, the Orange could be a different team this time around.“Pittsburgh tomorrow will be more physical, man to man,” Boeheim said. “We’ll play more people tomorrow.” Comments Related Stories MARCHING BACK: Syracuse returns to form, gets offense humming in 75-63 Big East tournament win over Seton HallCarter-Williams ties Big East tournament assist record, paces Syracuse in win over Seton Hall Published on March 13, 2013 at 8:12 pm Contact Chris: email@example.com | @chris_iseman Facebook Twitter Google+
