The Westside Private Hospital will be just a few floors down.Skyhomes Taringa, which is being developed by Evans Long, will be constructed on the top two floors of the new Montserrat Healthcare facility currently under construction on Morrow Street.Skyhomes Taringa“The development provides a unique opportunity to have a hotel, childcare facility, day hospital and cafe on your doorstep,” Dirk Long of Evans Long said.“In addition to the facilities, the property is located adjacent to the Taringa railway station allowing easy access to the CBD, Suncorp Stadium and the airport.” Seven double-storey residences will be built across the two floors, with prices starting from $1.6 million.The project will be launched to the market this month, with six residences for sale.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus18 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market18 hours ago“The Skyhomes were driven by the mixed- used nature of the site and the height that we were able to achieve in this precinct,” Mr Long said. “The city and mountain views inspired us to create a product that has not been seen in the western suburbs.“The architects were briefed to create a warm and sophisticated space that took full advantage of the city, river and mountain views. A degree of flexibility was built in to create spaces that could be used for a variety of uses as well as catering for ground floor bedrooms now or in the future if desired.”Skyhomes Taringa.Ray White Toowong agent Kris Matthews, who is marketing the project, said larger and more opulent apartments were proving popular with buyers.“Apartments that fill the void between large family homes and your standard size two and three bedroom apartments seem to be the most desired right now, and this is being reflected in the interest and prices achieved,” he said.“Due to the lack of quality, expansive higher- end apartments in Brisbane, buyers are willing to pay top dollar for such properties.”Mr Matthews said Skyhomes Taringa would be most popular with downsizers who wanted to remain in the local area but still have enough space for visitors.“They will want a downsizing opportunity that … doesn’t necessarily feel like your typical apartment,” Mr Matthews said.last_img read more

Roommates Lies Lagerweij and Roos Weers lead No. 3 Syracuse through late-season slate

first_imgLies Lagerweij and Roos Weers have not always been best friends. Before coming to SU, the two roommates battled head-to-head in club tournaments in the Netherlands. With Lagerweij at forward and Weers playing back, the now-teammates competed directly against each other. “She was very skillful,” Weers said. “But she was always kind of lazy and my coaches would say, ‘just keep her in front of you and once you get past her don’t worry about her anymore.”Both Weers and Lagerweij have progressed since their days in the Netherlands. The Dutch players left their rivalry overseas and learned to utilize each other’s skill sets. The two backs lead No. 3 Syracuse (12-2, 4-2 Atlantic Coast) in points. Lagerweij holds the top spot with 23 points coming on 11 goals and one assist, while Weers trails by just a point boasting eight goals and six assists on the season. The Orange travels to No. 13 Boston University for a game on Sunday at 1 p.m.Weers and Lagerweij use honesty to support each other on the back line. When Lagerweij doesn’t play to her abilities Weers lets her know it. Lagerweij also returns the favor and picks up the slack. As often as they feed off each other when playing well, they also step up at different moments. In Weers’s two best games of the year, she carried Syracuse with four points against Duke and Cornell while Lagerweij failed to score a point in those two games. Similarly, against Bucknell, Weers failed to record a point while Lagerweij tallied five.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“You know I got you, it’s fine,” Lagerweij said to a struggling Weers against then-No. 11 Wake Forest. A simple gesture, but one that kept Weers focused while her teammate stepped up. Lagerweij scored the fourth and final goal of the game to seal the 4-2 victory for the Orange. “We keep each other sharp in practice when one of us isn’t playing well,” said Lagerweij. “… We are really hard on each other I think and very honest with each other.” The two backs have learned to rely on each other in key situations. Weers is a more power defender. She lacks the close stick handling ability of Lagerweij, forcing her to rely on strength to clear the ball. With one stroke of the stick, Weers can launch a ball soaring through the air 70 yards downfield. Lagerweij prefers to dangle through defenders sometimes maneuvering through two or three before finding open space. “(Lies) is one of the most skillful players in the country. I am not the skillful in the small area,” Weers said. “So when there’s full pressure I just give her the ball and she will come out of there.”After starting all but one game together over the last two seasons, Lagerweij and Weers have devolved a deep bond. When faced with adversity, the two frequently find each other as a bail out to avoid trouble.A quick glance was all it took for Lagerweij to know what Weers was thinking in a 4-3 victory over Bucknell on Oct. 2. As the field shifted to one side, Lagerweij and Weers locked eyes. Without any form of communication, Lagerweij shifted against the flow of defense, finding herself wide open for a rocket from Weers. The ball snuck in between defenders and landed on Lagerweij’s stick, who put the finishing touches on what would turn out to be the game winning goal. “She’s really good at deceiving passes,” Lagerweij said. “But I just always know where she’s gonna go or where she’s looking to play.” Comments Published on October 19, 2016 at 11:03 pm Contact Josh: jlschafe@syr.edu | @Schafer_44 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
