As developer Karam Group prepares to break ground for the construction of Maasra Apartments in Coorparoo, the Group has announced the appointment of specialist development manager Grant Thurlow to oversee the $95 million development.
Mr Thurlow is responsible for taking the Maasra Apartments mixed-use development in Coorparoo from concept to project launch and will see it through construction to completion.
With more than three decades in property development, Mr Thurlow’s experience spans the whole process from site investigation and design, through to DA & BA processes, construction management and compliance.
His commitment to delivering large high-profile projects continues to change southeast Queensland’s landscape.
Having worked for several major multi-national construction companies, including Glenzeil, Kyronn Projects, FKP Constructions, Tomkins Constructions and Baulderstone Hornibrook, Mr Thurlow has been at the forefront of delivering quality residential and commercial developments.
In his management role for various developers and construction companies, he has overseen a number of development projects from design phase to completion, including luxury residential towers ‘Brighton Grand’ and contemporary residential building ‘One33’ in Southport, twin residential towers ‘Inn on the Park’ at Toowong, as well as the mixed-use apartment building ‘Axia Apartments’ in Coorparoo and the nearby 120-unit ‘Langlands Close Apartments’.
Mr Thurlow also delivered Gold Coast’s premier commercial tower ‘The Rocket’ and executive apartments ‘Riverwalk’ at Robina, as well as 300-units across nine buildings at Griffith University’s Gold Coast student campus and a five-level residential apartment building in Mackay among other major commercial projects.
Mr Thurlow’s early career in construction management kicked off as Site Manager for Westfield Design & Construction and spanned over a decade, during which time he completed five Queensland shopping centres, including Westfield Carindale and Garden City, as well as one in South Australia and another in the ACT.
By adapting to new technologies and market trends, Mr Thurlow has successfully spearheaded and managed large high-profile projects for over 30 years.
He believes the success of each development relies on four qualities: vision, design, determination and guts.
“While I have experienced many changes in the industry, one thing that has remained consistent is my goal to deliver high quality development projects,” Mr Thurlow said.
“I am very passionate about design and construction, and have project managed a diverse range of projects to deliver quality outcomes for developers.
“In my current position as Development Manager for Karam Group, I am very excited to be delivering the $95 million Maasra Apartments Coorparoo, a luxury mixed-use residential building of eight levels and 104 apartments, whose owners will have exclusive access to a range of five-star resort-style amenities.
“I am absolutely delighted about what’s in store for the local community, as Maasra Apartments will elevate Coorparoo’s transformation into an iconic urban centre with boutique retail and dining on the ground floor and commercial office space on Level 1.
“Karam Group has also contributed 470sqm of the Maasra Apartments’ development site to provide additional parkland with a pedestrian and cycle pathway linking Old Cleveland Rd to the rejuvenated Coorparoo Creek Park, which further enhances the whole area.”
Mr Thurlow is looking forward to starting construction on Maasra Apartments in the near future.
