Researching Fortitude Valley Rentals and Cathedral Place Apartment Rentals
Generally, the best website for researching Fortitude Valley rentals and Cathedral Place apartment rentals are on the realestate.com.au website. Fortitude Valley covers quite a large area from Boundary Street bordering the Brisbane CBD, right down to Skyring Terrace bordering Bowen Hills and Newstead. Cathedral Place is closer to Brisbane City so it makes its location suitable for anyone working in the Brisbane CBD.
Searching the whole of Fortitude Valley can return a lot of results so it helps to know how to refine Cathedral Place rentals only. Using search terms like “41 Gotha St, Fortitude Valley”, “Cathedral Place” or even “studio apartments for rent Brisbane” does not work. The Cathedral Place address, while generally unified under 41 Gotha St, Fortitude Valley can use a secondary address depending on what street the apartment faces. For example, F block is also known as 592 Ann Street, B/C block 131 Wickham Street, etc. Confusing I know, but that’s the way things are.

Things to take into account when renting an apartment at Cathedral Place
As mentioned earlier Cathedral Place apartments are owned individually so every rental can differ. Here is a check list of things to factor when renting an apartment. You can then compare other apartments to make sure your are getting the best deal.
- How many bedrooms does the apartment have? Naturally, the more bedrooms the more expensive to rent.
- How many bathrooms does the apartment have?
- Is an allocated car space provided?
- If there is a car space provided, is it located on Basement 1 or 2? (ie B1 or B2). B1 is easier to get in and out of the complex.
- Is the apartment facing internally or externally? Generally, internal-facing apartments are quieter because you don’t get the street noise. Also, the view over the internal pool is better than facing the street. Possibly a subjective viewpoint although I think you’ll find this is the consensus.
- What is the condition of the apartment? Some apartments are old and tired, some have been renovated.
- What block is the apartment in? Some of the apartment blocks are larger than others ranging from five to nine levels. You may prefer to be in a smaller block or possibly would enjoy the view that the taller blocks provide.

Are Cathedral Place Rentals Cheap For Brisbane?
Cathedral Place apartment rentals would be considered competitive, if not slightly cheaper than other apartment complexes close to the Brisbane CBD. As you may already be aware Brisbane apartment rental vacancy rates have been rising over the years so negotiation is definitely in favour of the tenant. You can always try your luck at a cheaper rental price!
How Does Cathedral Place Compare to Other Brisbane Apartment Buildings?
Most notably in favour of Cathedral Place is the mid-rise height of the complex. Instead of a high-rise complex going straight up, it’s more spread out which allows for a large internal swimming pool and BBQ area. Quite uncommon for apartment buildings so close to Brisbane city. Having said this, there is one thing that generally can’t be escaped in inner-city living, and that’s noise. When choosing an apartment I would favour the inner facing units as they don’t get the traffic noise that the outer facing units do. Cathedral Place has three major roads on its perimeter, Gipps, Ann and Wickham streets. Gipps st would be the loudest as it carries the traffic going over Story Bridge.
