    Greenslopes - Brisbane Suburbs

    Greenslopes 

    Greenslopes is a residential suburb that lies 5km South East from Brisbanes CBD.

    Many of the dwellings in the suburb of Greenslopes are 'character homes' of pre-war construction. Brisbane City Council purportedly recognises pre-war homes as being valuable to the identity of the suburb and enforces controls relating to the demolition and renovation of the original homes, whilst also ensuring that any new dwellings built in the suburb are reflective of traditional architecture and maintain and enhance the character of the streetscape. However, two- and three-story walk-up apartment buildings are increasingly the norm.

    Before August 2015, Greenslopes was in Holland Park Ward but from August 2015 it is in the new Coorparoo Ward with Annerley, Coorparoo, Camp Hill and Carina Heights.

    Greenslopes contains a mixture of upper end residential dwellings on the ridgeline and lower end units in the lower parts. Most houses on the ridgeline (above Ridge Street) are above $600k and many feature glistening city views comparable with any in Brisbane. Housing styles range from traditional Queenslanders to modern mansions. Greenslopes is dominated by the presence of the Greenslopes Hospital, the best private hospital in Queensland which makes it popular with doctors nurses and other health professionals. The terrain in Greenslopes varies with hills in the East and South sloping down to the Norman Creek floodplain and around the Westerm and Northern Suburbs.
