Picture: Annette Dew.BRISBANE’S most crammed suburbs are getting even more crowded thanks to a high rise boom, increased migration and an emerging preference for inner city living.The latest figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics revealed the 10 most densely populated suburbs in Greater Brisbane were all within 5km of the CBD, but city planning experts said that was not a bad thing. LIST: SCROLL DOWN FOR MOST CROWDED SUBURBS LIST It comes amid signs the inner city’s beaten down unit market is making a comeback, with the latest home value data released by property researcher CoreLogic revealing apartment values outperformed houses in Brisbane last month, as cashed-up Baby Boomers swap the suburbs for city life.Just 2km from Brisbane’s CBD, covering more than a square kilometre of prime real estate and with a median house price of just over $1 million, you’ll find the city’s most packed suburb — Kangaroo Point. GET THE LATEST REAL ESTATE NEWS DIRECT TO YOUR INBOX HERE Kangaroo Point is the most densely populated suburb in Brisbane, according to ABS.The riverside suburb is home to 9110 people, which worked out to be 6804 residents per square kilometre — that’s an extra 1154 people per square kilometre since 2007.On the other side of the Story Bridge, New Farm is the second most congested suburb in Greater Brisbane, adding 442 new residents per square kilometre over the past five years to increase from 6011 to 6453. GINA RINEHART SECURES $18.5M BRISBANE DIGS Balmoral has a population density of 3330, according to ABS figures.But Brisbane pales in comparison to some of the country’s most dense suburbs, with 19,500 people per square kilometre living in inner-city Melbourne and 16,300 residents per square kilometre in Potts Point in Sydney.The more populated a suburb, the better according to Steven Burgess, a consultant with engineering and transportation adviser MRCagney.Mr Burgess said high density areas were cheaper to run as a community, sharing infrastructure, services and assets. “Density is pretty good for cities,” he said.“The more stuff is closer together means people don’t have to drive far, it makes a city more efficient, more community focused, more socially sustainable.“What you’ve got to be careful of is that all your density doesn’t end up in one or two places in the city.” New Farm, the second most crowded suburb in Brisbane, is well-known for its cafe scene. Picture: Jamie Hanson.Neighbouring Fortitude Valley was the city’s third most packed suburb with 6288 people per square kilometre.It experienced the biggest jump in population density between the 2012 and 2016 Census, with more than 1800 people per square metre squeezing into the suburb in that time.In the past decade, it has become home to more than 2000 people per square kilometre. BRISBANE’S MOST EXPENSIVE HOME SALES Steven Burgess from MRCagney.Ethos Urban planning director Greg Vann, who was the project director for the Southeast Queensland regional plan, said two of the biggest generations were showing a distinct preference for inner city living.“Baby Boomers are downsizing and wanting to head back to where the buzz is, and Millennials are upsizing and wanting to stay close to the action,” Mr Vann said. “People are choosing to trade space for place.“Instead of having a bigger home further out, a lot of people are choosing to have a smaller home, but close to everything.”Mr Vann said that while the “high rise boom” in recent years in Brisbane’s inner city had contributed to population density, there remained a “missing middle”.“74 per cent of housing in southeast Queensland is still made up of detached houses,” he said.“It’s the stuff in the middle we need more of.” By that, he means townhouses and other forms of lower density, ground-oriented attached housing. “Those choices will be more attractive to people as housing needs change,” Mr Vann said.Mr Burgess said there was a significant difference between the population density in inner Brisbane and the middle to outer suburbs.“Once you get out of the inner city, you have to drive to do anything,” he said.“What I would love to see is the real revitalisation of the urban village (in Brisbane), so everyone didn’t have to come into the city to get to employment, night life, restaurants.”center_img Crowds of people in Queen Street Mall, Brisbane City.Real estate agents were also seeing a strong appetite from downsizers and millennial buyers for inner city housing.While some concerns remain about an oversupply of inner-city apartments, the high-end of the unit market is still in strong demand.Michael Bacon of Place Kangaroo Point said more buyers were looking for the convenience of having “everything at their doorstep”.“Another key factor is low maintenance,” he said.“They’re looking for something they can lock and leave.”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus19 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market19 hours agoMr Bacon believed projects such as Queens Wharf would lure more people to inner city locations. “Once that goes up, people will be like ‘I want to be near that or have views of that’,” he said. There has been plenty of construction happening in Fortitude Valley.

first_imgJapan’s sumo association on Friday confirmed its first coronavirus case, in a new blow for the ancient sport, which has already been forced to move one tournament behind closed doors and postpone others.One low-ranking wrestler who had a fever last week has tested positive for the virus, the association said, declining to name the man or give details of his stable.Sumo’s spring tournament in Osaka was held behind closed doors over concerns about the coronavirus The association said no other wrestlers or officials had symptoms and those who belong to the infected wrestler’s stable will stay home or at the stable and follow advice from health officials. The outbreak in Japan has been smaller than in many countries, with more than 5,300 cases and 88 deaths confirmed so far, but the government this week declared a state of emergency in seven regions, and the sumo association said it was adapting too. The association has not called off daily training but new instructions include requiring wrestlers to take their temperatures twice a day. The “tokoyama” responsible for styling wrestlers’ hair into their signature oiled topknots have been asked to avoid public transportation when coming to stables, a spokesman said. A young wrestler at a Tokyo stable confirmed daily training was continuing as usual but said activities were limited. “We go out only for (grocery) shopping… Stress is building up in many people,” he added. News of the infected wrestler came a week after the association postponed two sumo tournaments scheduled for later this year.

But it was broadcast live on national TV, where viewers could hear sounds normally drowned out by the crowd, including wrestlers slapping their bellies and scraping their feet on the clay ring. Some rituals were amended, including the traditional ladle of water that a winning wrestler offers to the next in the ring. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Sumo stables have cut back training and put in place other restrictions to limit the spread of the coronavirus“We wear masks where possible, wash hands, disinfect hands… We have been taking normal prevention measures,” he told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.“We don’t visit other stables to practice. We have been practising in our stable only.” Promoted ContentWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Couples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemWhy Do So Many Digital Assistants Have Feminine Names & Voices?Top Tastiest Foods From All Over The World7 Facts About Black Holes That Will Blow Your Mind6 Interesting Ways To Make Money With A Drone15 Photos Of Amazingly Beautiful MutationsBest Car Manufacturers In The World10 Hyper-Realistic 3D Street Art By Odeith5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks The next sumo “basho” or tournament, scheduled to open on May 10 in Tokyo, has been delayed by two weeks.

first_img McCreery said: “We’ve got a couple of good jockey bookings for the two of them (Billy Lee on Asgardella and Joseph O’Brien on Indigo Lady) and they’ll both like the ground. You couldn’t get enough rain for either of them. “Both of them have worked well since they arrived, so if they can get a bit of black type we’ll be delighted. Indigo Lady is going to Camelot and Asgardella is going to Kodiac, so this could be the last time you see the two of them on the racecourse.” Pop Art was placed in Listed company on a couple of occasions last year, but trainer Charles O’Brien is concerned the step up to a mile could be too much for his four-year-old this weekend. He said: “I’m hoping she’ll run well. She’ll like the ground and she’s in good form. The mile is probably stretching her a bit, that’s my only concern, but we’ll see what happens.” Paul Deegan’s Achnaha is one of only three three-year-olds in the 12-runner field, the others being Aidan O’Brien’s Dance With Another and the Dermot Weld-trained Vote Often. Achnaha was runner-up on two of her three juvenile starts, most recently playing second fiddle to O’Brien’s classy colt Mekong River in the Listed Eyrefield Stakes at Leopardstown in early November. Deegan said: “She seems in good form and has some good form in the book. She’s a big, imposing filly who was always going to be better this year than she was last season, so we’re looking forward to getting her going. “She might appreciate a bit further in time and she’s taking on the older fillies, which is always tough. We think she’s quite nice, she’s still quite green and will improve with racing.” Asgardella and Indigo Lady could make their first and last appearance for trainer Willie McCreery in the Lodge Park Stud EBF Park Express Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday. Asgardella won twice in Britain for Richard Fahey before going under the hammer for 52,000 guineas at last December’s Tattersalls Sale, while Indigo Lady won at Yarmouth and was placed at Group Three level in France for Peter Chapple-Hyam. However, both have been bought as potential broodmares rather than racemares and they will attempt to increase their value in this weekend’s Group Three test before being covered by a couple of leading stallions. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
