Gurner opens Queensland office

FV contains three towers.

Gurner has opened its first Queensland office, at Brisbane.

The developer has chosen a property familiar to it – 156 Alfred Street, Fortitude Valley, the former sales and information centre for its FV project, which it completed across the road in 2019.

In the state, the group last year unveiled a $1.25 billion mixed-use project, Le Pelago, on 1.1 hectares at 8 Ferny Avenue, Surfers Paradise.

With four towers, the tallest at 60 floors, the permitted complex is expected to contain over 900 apartments and a 200-suite hotel.

Not far away at Burleigh Heads, eight months ago, backed by financier MaxCap, Gurner snapped up a 1062 square metre site for a $120m residential complex.

Costing a speculated $5.5m, that block, 1929 Gold Coast Highway, is expected to accommodate about 80 dwellings over 22 levels (story continues below).

In May, the builder, led by Tim Gurner, rented its first Sydney office (pictured, top); at Paddington, PR executive Roxy Jacenko is the landlord.

The group also recently shuffled its Melbourne accommodation, quitting a Malvern office to consolidate to its main headquarters, an ex-Mini dealership, in nearby Prahran.
