Labrador Building Inspections
Labrador was once a quiet holiday suburb, but now, it harbours the trendies of the Gold Coast and lovers of everything aquatic. Over the last 10 years the area has experienced major growth and progress which has led to the locals to come about in their attitudes towards the suburb. And why not? The suburb is lined by the Broadwater and close to the CBD but far away enough to be peaceful and relaxed.
Labrador is a long established suburb, as of such, there is no vacant land left. Many of the older three storey walk ups and holiday houses that run alongside the Broadwater are being torn down for redevelopment. New and luxurious buildings have risen in the recent years as well as a thriving cafe precinct.
Labrador is experiencing a significant transformation. It is foreseeable that the future holds much anticipated promise for the suburb which can be seen in the boutiques, bars and restaurants that are popping up all over the place.
Labrador is a mixed suburb with Broadwater beachfront to the East and gentle hills to the West with a pleasant mixture of wide tree-lined streets, original ‘Queenslander’ style housing (some more than ready for re-development than others), new townhouses and up-market high-rise developments and accommodation.
As one of the first suburbs of the Gold Coast to be developed (back in the 50s) Labrador still has an abundant supply of retro-style houses – half of which were renovated in the recent housing boom by first home owners, the other half will probably sit there for a few years until bargain hunters snap them up.
Any scrap of spare land near the Broadwater has been turned into apartments, some older-style three storey walk-ups, others 1990s low rises and a spate of brand new designer high rise buildings on the beach. Recent developments over the last few years have seen dozens of new restaurants spring up and the whole area has jumped up a class from its heyday as a sleepy little suburb of fibro homes.As a property investment, Labrador represents some of the best buying on the Gold Coast at the cheaper end of the market and you can still purchase a great home with character for under $400,000 (yes, with character)
