The planners at Urbis, state, “The proposed development accords with and promotes the intent of the District Centre Zone and Special Purpose Zone. The proposal is a compatible infill development that provides for greater economic activity to cater to the needs of the growing population within a Growth Node that is serviced by high-frequency public transport stations, being Buranda Railway and Busway Stations”.

“The proposal capitalises on the site’s location as a key public transport node by delivering a highly accessible mixed-use precinct comprising of student accommodation and apartment towers, as well as residential care facility, commercial and retail uses. Whilst a minor portion of the proposed Residential Care Facility traverses the land within the Transport Infrastructure Zone Precinct, this area is designated as ‘The Trail’ public realm sub-precinct”.

“The Trail includes a pedestrian boardwalk that incorporates subtropical design elements to buffer, screen and transition the development to the adjoining Buranda Railway Station. The proposed bulk and scale of the buildings contribute to the function and purpose of the Corridor zone precinct and Transport Infrastructure zone precinct, whilst considering the local character and values of the area”.

“The proposal achieves architectural excellence through incorporating climatic responsive design with a public accessible ground plane that promotes pedestrian movement through the site”.
