    Vote one for Teneriffe . We bought OTP 18 months ago and it's just settled .

    One suburb off the centre of the city . There a shuttle bus into the city . Lots of trendy places . New shopping centre at the gas works .

    Not sure on all of the zoning , but there are substantial areas where there are no high rises and much of the units are in converted old industrial buildings or new blocks which are limited to around 6-8 levels . We bought in " the James " in Helen St .

    Lots of DINKS renting two bedders .

    I would add Rosalie. Usually full of diners mid week.
    Fortitude Valley is like Brisbane's Newtown of course. West End. Stones Corner.

    Rosalie is a part of Paddington. I just bought a townhouse in Paddington not far from Rosalie Village and Latrobe Terrace in early Feb this year.

    Uh, that's why it's trendy. Because old people only know Paddington :rolleyes:
    Nice spot. Staggering distance to Suncorp stadium and Caxton St if that's what you're into.

    Good that your tenants get the convenience and you get some rent.

    Westend has the top rated Government School - Brisbane State High School. Entry selection is based on locality to the school I believe. There are $1m house and there are 2 bed older style apartments for around $400k which I believe is best pick.

    There are suburbs that aren't 'trendy' yet that have a lower entry price, but have had a significant visible demographic and CAFE shift: (Coorparoo - too late), Greenslopes, Holland Park (too late), Mt Gravatt Central (nearly too late?).

    These also have a bikeway, and are riding distance to the city, and what do bearded hipsters like second to coffee? Bikes.

    Have a look at Wilston, Kelvin Grove, Grange, Mitchelton and Alderley. A bit further out but still 5-7kms.

    Maybe also look at the high number of private 20k plus per year from the river back into Dutton Park Schools, most book their kids in the day they are born,West End is still changing and from experience even during the sideways value times still went up,Dutton Park still high land to value range,Annerley is still in that range,the Logan road side is all going to multi level units and it's happening now..imho..

    As you can see from the above posts, there are quite a number of trendy inner city suburbs in Brisbane, and it seems to be growing as these areas get pricey and the neighbouring suburbs start to get trendy.
