    432 BTR & 46 Apartments

A Build-To-Rent (BTR) focused mixed use development, the project will deliver significant & diverse housing supply through; varied BTR rental options, affordable housing, short term accommodation as well as owner occupier apartments. The provision of such diverse housing alternatives and mixed tenure options aims to create a thriving precinct within the broader established community of this sought after Brisbane suburb.

The podium design features organic forms with hanging gardens and trees indicative of a steep river bank on the outer edge of a turn on the Brisbane River, softening and enhancing the built environment on Station Road. This harmonious blend of landscape and built form will provide a sense of tranquillity and well-being. The frontage to Station Road acts as an expansive “verandah”, reflecting the architectural style of this suburb’s numerous classic Queenslander-style homes. The integrated landscape and hanging gardens soften the existing urban character of the street.

The retail arcade will draw people into and through the site, utilising the travelator to access the plaza creating a more equitable and walkable transition along Station Road for less abled people. This connection further activates the space and provides opportunities for residents and the public to pause, and escape the summer heat.

An engaging and activated retail precinct at the ground level will provide food and beverage offerings as well as ancillary retail shops acting as an extension of the BtR community. This layered retail precinct engages with Station Road, punctuated by landscape and breezeways, publicly accessible, encouraging the public to move into and through this shaded, landscaped plaza creating a space where the BtR community and public blend together and integrate.

The development will be designed to achieve GBCA’s 5 Star Green star certification and will incorporate leading green building initiatives to reduce the impact of the development. Numerous community based environmental initiatives will be adopted and facilitated through its design.

The BTR facilities are lifestyle focused, offering a variety of recreational areas, gym and wellness spaces, large co-working and meeting facilities, recording studios and rooftop areas featuring lounge and entertainment spaces and private dining areas with views of the city.

The project’s unique blend of responsive placemaking through biophilic design principles and pedestrian-centric planning will create a vibrant and engaging community
