Utopia Space Sod Turning Ceremony

Sod Turning Ceremony, Utopia Space Fortitude Valley

A sod turning ceremony is a traditional ceremony that celebrates the beginning of construction for a building. On the 26 July, a sod turning ceremony was held in Fortitude Valley to mark the start of work on Utopia Space by Sandt Developments Group. Hutchinson Builders will commence construction in the coming weeks over a period of approximately 28 months.

In attendance, Sandt Developments Group Chairman Tom Sun and Project Manager Bill Wang was joined by dignitaries Jack Hutchinson of Hutchinson Builders, Councillor Vicki Howard of the Central Ward, Councillor Steven Huang of the MacGregor Ward, John Gaskin of Gaskin Construction Services.

The ceremony began with speeches from Councillor Vicki Howard who spoke of the vibrant and growing suburb of Fortitude Valley, and Chairman of Sandt Developments Group, Tom Sun, who talked about his long time dream of Utopia Space that is about to come to life.

Dignitaries were then invited to pick up a red ribbon bound shovel to partake in on the occasion which marked the start of construction; whereby the shovels were and used to turn the sod for the first time.

Following this, red lions danced playfully with dignitaries and guests to overturn the past to new and flourish beginnings. It is safe to say we will be keeping an eye out for what’s to come in the next 28 months!

Situated at 275 Wickham Street in Fortitude Valley, Utopia Space will be a place where you can create your ideal living space through shared experiences with like-minded residents, inspiring rooftop events and recreational facilities, which cater to all moods and lifestyles. Utopia’s 1, 2 and 3 bedroom residences offer a refreshingly modern twist on the Australian residential lifestyle. With ample rooftop space and skyline views, it’s high-class city living with state of the art, open air cinema, large BBQ communal area for alfresco cooking and dining.

With the Utopia Space project approved by the Brisbane City Council, Sandt Developments is now developing one of the tallest buildings in The Valley area.

With all of this in mind, it is not hard to see how a project only just starting construction has already generated so much excitement and interest in the local community, and across the globe.
