Sod turning marks ground breaking development indicator for Fortitude Valley

Part of the Queensland Government’s Build-to-Rent (BTR) Pilot Project, providing affordable housing options to the inner-city,  Frasers Property Australia has commenced construction of its Build-to-Rent development in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane following an official sod turning event.
