Lage

Fortitude Valley, Queensland, Australien

Aeons of history include early shoppers tethering their horses to hitching rails out front, the addition of a garage in 1918 and Myers buying the building in 1955 and operating from there until 1988 when the Valley was in a state of decline.


Added to the Queensland Heritage Register in 1992, the McWhirter building still stands, its red brick facade presiding over Brunswick Street Mall in the Valley. Today however, the upper floors have been converted to apartments and the ground floor is a rabbit warren of eateries, groceries and retail outlets.

As the owners of an existing long-term management rights operation in Sunnybank, Jill and Luke admit to being beguiled by the historic building and its idyllic location; and in true retail fashion, what started out as ‘window shopping’ turned into a purchase and relocation into the city.



McWhirters offers 114 spacious apartments positioned securely above the retail precinct, 50 percent of which are in the letting pool, and all feature high ceilings, large picture windows and contemporary kitchens. And being centrally located, the property offers easy access to virtually everything… surrounded by restaurants, theatres, live music and entertainment, it is also within walking distance to the Brisbane River and all forms of public transport.



So, other than the lure of the grand building I ask Jill and Luke why they opted for a property so different from the first.



“A long-term or permanent property is relatively simple to manage,” says Jill. “There is minimal marketing required and the working hours are generally consistent. We wanted to learn about and experience a mixed-use property.”



As a strong proponent of management rights as a business, particularly for Chinese operators, Jill says that the industry provides a steep learning curve for migrants, exposing them to situations and life experiences that they one wouldn’t normally experience.



“In addition to the business and caretaking aspects of running a building, one is exposed to people from all cultures, religions, educations, backgrounds and even moral standing and one has to learn to adapt and accept everyone for who they are.

“It’s been an invaluable experience for my children,” adds Jill. “They have got to see how different people interact and that life is about change, values and ethics, about evolving as a person and moving forward despite the challenges.

After establishing a post production company in India. I am in the process of moving to Byron Bay to run the off-shore branch of Freehance Media. I have travelled six of the worlds seven continents by motorbikes, donkeys, boats, rail, horseback, man driven cart, car, bus, farri, long tail boat, auto and took tooks. Seeing the colours, flavours, intense culture and epic adventure of the earth has changed my life forever and enriched it in ways i would have never known. I love the world and the passionate people in this vast world. Why I’m on Air BNB... work often in the Byron area and would much rather rent out my home to likeminded people of this young Australian culture. Some of the best times I ever had in my life was hanging out with locals in other countries so feel free to let me know if you need a guided tour of the city.
