So very excited by the win. A very big congratulations to Matt Clements, the brilliant architect and Ted Cheng, who with his wonderful building team put it all together. Thank you to you all. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience from start to finish. Cheers and popping champagne.
We are delighted with Emi who did our interior designing. Her selection of contemporary furniture and colour coordination is remarkable as it blends in so well with the schemes within our select apartment. Emi is a pleasure to work with. She listened attentively to our needs, offered well informed guidance on a selection of items and conscientiously supervised the appropriate installation of each. We recommend her for her designing ability, flair and adaptability. We wish her success in all her future projects. Best wishes.
In moving to Brisbane from a large house on acreage on the Atherton Tablelands to apartment living we were very particular in defining our requirements when looking for a place to live. We were looking for a spacious apartment within 5 kilometres of CBD with no more than 6 in the complex which was ascetically pleasing. After a significant period of time looking we found Elysium and love living here. We love the layout with the living area opening onto the large front balcony making it very open and liveable with street gas for the BBQ. (never have to fill gas cylinders) One factor we really enjoy is having two balconies allowing for flow through ventilation making the apartments temperature very comfortable. This was a benefit we hadn’t considered and we rarely turn on the air conditioner. The main bedroom is spacious with a large walk in robe and ensuite. The second and third bedroom are a good size and are directly opposite the main bathroom. The gallery style kitchen has good bench space and plenty of cupboards with a pantry. A good sized separate laundry with storage was also an important factor in our decision making. The quality of the kitchen appliances, bathroom fittings, tiles and carpet is first class. Secure parking for two vehicles and a large storage room is also important to us.
Finally apart from an apartment we love living in its location close to shops at Swan Road Gallery Fiveways (200 metre walk) Toowong Village and Indooroopilly Shoppingtown is a bonus.
Our dealings with the Developer Abor Developments were excellent and any minor issues were rectified immediately.
Ted and Emi Cheng of Abor Developments are a dynamic duo. They have to be one of the best development, construction and interior design couples in the industry today. When we viewed their Elysium property development we instantly knew we had found our 'next' home. From the quality of materials to the finished product, the construction and decor could be surpassed by none. With a family background in construction, there was nothing I (Kathryn) could fault in our 'new home' complex. We have been extremely delighted and can say unequivocally there is little else on the market today that can compare.
We recently bought our home which was originally built and freshly renovated by Abor Developments. It has a very special design with a large open space under a unique high ceiling, which very much resembles many historic ROC buildings in Nanjing, China (Renee and I grew up in Nanjing). Under that unique ceiling and the Canadian timber inside, is the huge kitchen, formal and informal dining/lounge. These are the areas that Renee and I love most. Actually Renee loves the formal area more, and I favor the informal area. We love the view from the informal dining area. The French doors look fantastic. I can sit there, inside or outside, all day. We spend a lot of time at home, so a large house like this gives us the great sense of comfort. Renee loves cooking and running in the gym and the kitchen is hugely appealing to her. Well, we still need to find her a place to put her treadmill, but it should be an easy job. I work from home and love to step outside to attend to some garden work and I would not mind picking up my tennis skills. Renee and I are generally extremely quiet people, though we love to entertain our friends from time to time, and this house has made everything possible and there are so many areas to retreat to. I have been thinking that we may even host our boys' engagement party or even wedding in our backyard. We love the interior design and the presentation of the house, which is simple but has a subtle elegance. It suits the house very well. After we learnt that Emi was the interior designer responsible for the renovation, we decided to engage her to furnish the house, as we wanted to maintain that special character. Emi has exceeded our expectation. It was beautifully furnished.
After many setbacks from large display home builders, we have come to realize how truly fortunate we are to have our first house built by Abor Developments. With the help of an accomplished architect Matthew Clements, Abor Developments has surpassed our goals and expectations in creating a modern contemporary house that is tailored to our lifestyle and dream. Ted is an amazing builder, who is very passionate about building and is seriously devoted to his work. He, not only exhibits trust and ethics, but takes time to educate and explain in detail how things work in the building industry. Despite our constant bombardment of emails, Ted had always answered all our questions promptly and had never failed to give us his honest opinion. He is backed by an outstanding team of tradesmen who strive to produce only the best quality of work. We also had the pleasure of working with his talented wife Emi who did an amazing job with our kitchen, ensuite, walk-in wardrobe and fireplace design. She is very professional and has an exceptional flair for colour coordination and material selection. She understood our vision for the house and made every effort to ensure we were happy with our selections-still happy! From pre-construction meetings through to construction execution, building with Abor Developments has been an enjoyable experience for us. We attribute that to their excellent communication, transparency and team attitude. These elements, along with the attention to details and the fundamental desire to achieve the highest quality and details, have us looking forward to our next project together-if and when the opportunity arises.
Abor Developments managed the build of our pool and outdoor entertaining area. From the moment we engaged them they were professional, knowledgeable and stepped us through the process, always delivering on time and doing work of an exceptional standard. The end result was beyond expectation and is now a very well used and enjoyed space in our home. We highly recommend Abor Developments and look forward to working with them on the next stage of our renovation.
