Coorparoo is only a hop, skip and jump away from Brisbane’s CBD. For working professionals with a family, being close to the city whilst living in a family friendly suburb is an important consideration when deciding where to rent.
Amrita says majority of Place Coorparoo’s rental properties are close to bus stops or the Coorparoo train station and she sees a lot of working professionals wanting to be close to these amenities.
“Transport is fantastic in Coorparoo, the majority of our rental properties are walking distances to bus stops or a short distance to a train station. This means that professionals who work in the city are attracted to the area as they have the convenience of living in family friendly suburbs but can still easily transport to the city, this is another contributing factor of why people are attracted to Coorparoo.”
