Constructions begins on the recently approved Masterplanned Community, located at 20 & 38 Ivedon Street, Banyo.
Known as ‘Summerlin‘, the Development Application Approval is for the following:
– Preliminary Approval for Material Change of Use Medium Density Residential Zone, Estate Sales Office, Display Dwelling and Home Business (in a Industrial Zone)
– Development Permit for Material Change of Use for Multiple Dwellings over various stages
Designed by RotheLowman Architects , the approval allows ninety nine (99) medium density dwellings within clusters of buildings. The site is within proximity to the Nudgee Train Station and is set for redevelopment in a variety of housing styles. The 2 buildings, with a maximum building height of six (6) storeys are positioned along the Rail Line boundary and 2 buildings of two (2) storeys (townhouses) are positioned along Ivedon Street as well as the vehicle access and pedestrian entrance. To facilitate the application the existing industrial buildings have been removed.
– Stage 1 – 26 units
– Stage 2A – 27 units
– Stage 2B – 34 units
– Stage 7 (previously labelled 6) – 12 units
The Stages of the development approval are approximately 5,933sqm of gross floor area, new inernal roads, bio retention areas, 4,500sqm of communal open space area for residents (bbq, pool, recreations space, gym) and 700sqm for a pedestrian link to co-exist with the future stages on the 31,565sqm (3.16ha) subject site.
The site is within Industrial Zone and within the Banyo Nudgee Local Plan and has been approved for a major redevelopment in the immediate area. A Structure Plan of the surrounding areas has also being prepared for the application to show how the development will fit into the area now and in the future. The Structure Plan identifies how the ‘Elliott Road North’ precinct can in the future transition from warehousing and light industry, to medium density residential in accordance with the BCC Planning Scheme – Banyo Nudgee Local Plan.[espro-slider id=6074]
According to the planners at RPS Group, “The development is designed with transitioned building heights, increasing with distance from Ivedon Street. Development fronting Ivedon Street is generally a maximum 2 storeys in height, consistent with the intents under the Banyo/Nudgee Local Plan. Three (3) storey townhouses are proposed on corners and sparingly along the length of the Ivedon St frontage. The use of three storey elements ensures articulation in the roof form and a more appealing external appearance. The three storey elements are of a small scale, being setback 7m from the Ivedon St frontage and only 5m in width. They read as ‘pop-ups’ and provide articulation and variation to the Ivedon St frontage”.
“Significant communal open space is proposed within the core of the development site, providing a focal point and being buffered from external noise impacts from the railway corridor and surrounding industrial uses. The communal open space is more than 4,500m2 in area, providing a generous space that is split into different functional zones and will provide a very high level of amenity for the development”.
