Toondah Outlook On-Site Display Now Open

One of Redland city’s most noticed and talked about projects – The Luxury Toondah Outlook Apartments is welcoming crowds of potental buyers this week as the first of the Display Units opens their doors inside the towering complex.

The AFT Project’s $100 million luxury Apartment complex will see first residents move in from May of 2019.


The display units will offer the first glimpse of the finished project and insight into the facilities on offer.
And AFT Projects’ Chris Anderson says Toondah Outlook is a land mark project for Australia’s East Coast.

This level of luxury and inclusion has not been available on the door step of Moreton Bay ever before and that proximity to the Bay and the views on offer are attracting wide interest.


I think it’s the total package that appeals- from its location, with ready access to transport, shops and restaurants to the quality and thought within the apartments.

We’re being told it’s the size of apartments, the elegance and ambience of the project, as well as its storage facilities and our recreational options that are the key draw cards for buyers looking to move on from the huge family home. Toondah Outlook gives them the room and quality they are looking for.


It’s also appealing to younger families with teenagers-Keen to find that balance between lifestyle, excellent schools and convivence without the hassle of the huge home upkeep and maintenance or the squeeze that the small lot living offers.

We sit on a huge elevated block, close to the centre of Cleveland so the infrastructure is already here, the views are sensational, and smart design use of the land has meant we can offer storage for jet skis, boats, R/V’s and two cars as a minimum.

Toondah Outlook is a 90 plus Apartment resort style project offers a variety of sizes and styles of apartments with a unique level of storage and ‘room to move externally.

There’s already been huge interest and enquiry from people wanting to pass through the Display Units in the coming weeks.

Inside the attention to detail is like no other. We’ve worked with some top designers on the detail for these apartments. But what makes Toondah Outlook even more unique is that each unit will be different.


Virginia Anderson who oversees the finish says the Display Units will give a taste of the elegance and presence the Apartments and the entire complex will offer.

“There’s been three years of thought, consultation and quality hunting going into the project including interior fixtures, fitting and feel for each apartment. We will further work with each buyer to individually to bring the apartments alive with the style and design they seek for their new home.

Work at the complex is now very much turning to the finishing touches inside and out as the heavy construction nears completion over the next few weeks.


And work is also powering ahead on the “Residences” wing.

These will be super high-level luxury Penthouses expected to be released to market late this year.

The Residences offer buyers something beyond special.

One penthouse is over 1000m2 with 9 toilets and 5 fireplaces. There’s also 8, two level sub-penthouses.

Toondah Outlook On Track for Mid 2019 Opening

There’s been a ‘changing of the troops’ type movement at the massive Toondah Outlook Luxury Apartment construction site in Cleveland, as many of the workers who specialize in ‘externals’ finish their work and the focus swings to the finish and to the inside of the pinnacle project.


The AFT Project represents a $100 million investment by local developers and property analysts Chris and Virginia Anderson and is a vote of confidence in Redland city.

Chris Anderson:
It’s an investment that’s proving a success for city with more than 60% of the apartments already sold.

The complex is on track for completion in April / May 2019.
The focus is now on layering onto the construction work already completed and that means the real scope and luxury of the project will start to be revealed over coming weeks.

Toondah Outlook is a very different product to what is on offer in South East Queensland and I think that’s been the appeal. It offers a real alterative across the board.

One of the keys to the projects’ popularity has come from buyers who have been seeking a move away from the large family home but who still need and want the inside space, storage and quality not usually offered in an apartment or smaller home.

These buyers don’t consider their move as a downsize, rather they see it as a lifestyle up-lift.

It’s also a project that has wide appeal- from older folk to younger families with teenagers-Keen to find that balance between lifestyle, excellent schools, transport and facilities without the hassle of the huge home or the squeeze of the small lot offer.

Toondah Outlook is a pinnacle project for SEQ-A 90 plus Apartment resort style project offers 2 to 6-bedroom size apartments with plenty of room for storage and ‘room to move ‘externally.

We sit on a huge elevated block in the heart of the Cleveland CBD, so the infrastructure is already here, the views are sensational, and the space means we can offer storage for jet skis, boats R/V’s and two cars.

‘And we have beautiful spacious grounds.”

“Inside the attention to detail is like no other. We’re working with the buyers themselves and with seasoned designers to ensure that fittings and finish are world class.’

Virginia Anderson:
The Projects first Display Units will be completed and open to the public within the next few weeks and I’m looking forward to it.

There’s been three years of thought, consultation and quality hunting going into the interior fixtures, fitting and feel for each apartment and then we work with each buyer individually to bring the apartments alive with the style and design they seek for their new home.

From this view point we’ve aimed at creating Display Units that reflect the true character of the Toondah Outlook lifestyle and offer.

So dedicated are we to making sure this project reflects all that the new buyer wants in a home, we’re selling it ourselves, so our buyers deal directly with us and we can style and cater their home to suit them.

Work is now underway on the “Residences” wing.

These high-level luxury Penthouses will now be released to market late this year and the Residences offer buyers something not seen in South East Queensland before.

One penthouse is over 1000m2 with 9 toilets and 5 fireplaces. There’s also 8, two level sub-penthouses.

We’re creating room with two to six-bedroom Apartments in a complex that offers more useable outside area than most homes but paramount within the character of what goes on with Toondah Outlook is a feeling of warmth and style that anyone would be proud to call home.

The Person – Not the Developer Dictates

After years of work in residential property development, Property Analyst Chris Anderson says he and Virginia might just know a thing or two about what people want in their homes.

And it has shaped a new approach to not only design but to selling as well.

“More listening… nothing on spec and no agents or slick real estate marketers.” Chris Anderson says is the first thing.

What people don’t want and won’t tolerate is being told they want or need half of everything – Sadly that’s what the industry seems hell bent on delivering in her name of cost cutting and small lot lifestyle.

What many of my counterparts have overlooked in their spin to shift those narrow homes with a splash of turf out the back is that people want a home.

We’re seeing the perfect storm erupt really in many areas. Where the corporate developer has arrived in places, paid way too much money for land and then set about carving it up into tiny blocks which they then have to sell at well over the odds.

The agents are calling this lifestyle choice… it’s lifestyle torture and investment failure.

The other developer flavor trend towards the tiny apartment or the two-bob townhouse is the result of the same sort of logic.

And as latest figures are showing clearly that these types of last decade projects are now not selling.

AFT Projects have taken a different approach.

Virginia and I have gone beyond ‘watching academic analysis and have instead talked with people.

“Most people, be it those who are ready to move onto the next stage of their lives and out of the huge family home or be it the young professional couple with kids want the same thing in different ways… but the same thing – Not just a base and bedroom but a home to live in and to be proud of – to call home. Home is comfort and feel.”

He says that’s been the driving force behind the design approach AFT Projects has taken with its iconic Toondah Outlook project now under construction in Redland city.

So dedicated are we to making sure this project reflects all that the new buyer wants in a home, we’re selling it ourselves, so our buyers deal directly with us and we can style and cater their home to suit them.

We made the starting point for this project to listen and to learn.

We looked at global movements, at population shifts and 21 st century lifestyle demands across age groups and we quickly concluded that what developers saw as downsize differed wildly to what people wanted… they want to down size the work and effort, upkeep, not the quality or way of life.

Young families want the schools, transport and convenience, not the outskirts and the box with no room to move.

They all want, we all want a home and the space and grace that brings.
Key as always is location – The site… and we found it at a high point in Cleveland nestled on the edges of the Toondah precinct but offering incredible views and access to water and bay islands.

Next came the design and with that, a commitment to quality.

Five years on and work has now begun.

We’re creating room with two to five-bedroom apartments in a complex that offers more useable outside area that most homes. There’s room for the R/V’s, caravans, jet skis, boats, we’ve incorporated a business centre for residents, a men’s’ shed, craft room, pool and outdoor entrainment areas, gym and we so end up with an environmental flavor that is in keeping with all that Redlands has to offer.

The project is expected to take just 18 months to complete and will offer 2 to five-bedroom residences across an impressive 3-street frontage location.

This is not about saving space through establishing a communal pocket, rather it is about ease of living and choice.

Redlands Sub Contractors Reap the Rewards

As the soil turns and the concrete is poured at the site of Redland city’s most iconic building in decades Redlands tradies’ and traders are set to reap rewards from the $90 plus million Toondah Outlook Apartment Project.


The magnificent building is a first for Redland city and a first for South Est Queensland, bringing a luxury resort style approach to day to day living and an end to the “downsize’ domain that has dictated unit construction on the East Coast for the past 25 years.

Designed and being constructed by local Redland Company AFT Projects, Toondah Outlook is an Apartment block that has its heritage in some of the most impressive lifestyle and resort style concepts globally.

And millions of dollars, most of the 90 plus million of them, is being spent with local Redland business.

Developer and Property Analyst Chris Anderson and his wife Virginia are the brains trust behind the project and say ensuring the project utilizes as much local labour and product as possible is all part of the vision.

Just as Redlands has been good to us, this project is about being good to it.

It’s an iconic design, a radical move in property development logic and it suits our city down to the ground because it taps into all that makes Redlands one of the greatest places on earth.

This project is about showcasing the best of what this wonderful area of South East Queensland has on offer. We are local builders and developers and we always look local for our team first.

Importantly also is that our family, our kids, have grown up enjoying a Redland lifestyle so we get all that this city has on offer. Time to spread the word and meet the challenge.

We expect the 99 Strong Apartment hub is expected to take just 18 months to complete and will offer 2 to five-bedroom residences across an impressive 3-street frontage location.

This is not about saving space though establishing a communal pocket, rather it is about ease of living and choice.


Virginia and I could not imagine developing such an iconic project anywhere else but in Redlands.

We have a city that is breathtaking… no doubt. We have multi-million-dollar huge homes, dotted across the water front and on acreage around city boundaries full of owners now looking to move to life’s next step.

Then we have the new world young thinkers, wanting all the advantages of city convenience but with environmental advantages, and without loss of access to food schools, or transportation-Where else but here?

There’s no doubt the project has hit a chord, with more than 66% of the Apartments already sold.

‘Our sales are very solid and at time when the small unit market is failing. It tells us the market is crying out for this new approach to living. For us it is the old story… listen to the people and build what they want and they will come.

Of course, the beauty, views, proximity to water amenities and transport helps.

Redlands Comes of Age

Work has now commenced on the Toondah Outlook Lifestyle Apartment Project in Cleveland with a finishing date now set for the March 2019. The 99-apartment block and luxury living resort style project is a first for the city and property watchers says with a much larger than average Apartment size it is a first for South East Queensland.

Developer and Leading Property Analyst Chris Anderson says Redland city is ready for this type of approach.

Mr Anderson says early interest in the project has shown that demand for the city and for a project of this type is huge.
