A development application has been lodged for Multiple Dwellings, located at 157 Leichhardt Street, Spring Hill.
Designed by Gardner Vaughan Group, the proposal seeks one hundred and twelve (112) medium density luxury residential units within a residential building that has a maximum building height of 25 storeys. The ground floor provides a landscaped arcade along the length of the western boundary, providing an entrance and residential lobby.
The podium includes three levels of car parking and internal communal space (media and gym rooms) on the third floor of the residential building, with the rooftop providing a communal swimming pool, barbeque, dining lounge, spa and landscaping.
The existing two storey commercial buildings and structures will be removed to facilitate the proposed site redevelopment, within the Principal Centre zone and Spring Hill Neighbourhood Plan.
– New 25 storey residential building
– 3 storeys of building podium
– Sixteen (16) x 1 bedroom dwellings
– Eighty four (84) x 2 bedroom dwellings
– Twelve (11) x 3 bedroom dwellings
– Ground floor landscaped arcade
– Ground floor resident lobby
– 3 basement levels of car park spaces
– 3 levels of the podium for car park scapes
– New access to Leichhardt Street.
The planners at Adam + Sparks Town Planning state, “The proposed development presents a high-quality architecturally designed high-rise development that presents a significant improvement to the streetscape in place of the current building onsite. The proposal is sympathetic to surrounding development and delivers an ideal outcome for inner-city
apartment living within the Brisbane CBD. The proposed development takes advantage of the site’s close proximity to public transport networks and delivers a use, height and density that is consistent with development anticipated to be delivered within the City Centre Precinct.
“The development contains a site responsive design that seeks communal and private open space areas with northern orientation to assist with solar impacts, restricts views of car parking areas using basement and screened podium levels, provides casual surveillance to Leichhardt Street and incorporates ample landscaping where possible to soften the overall built form. Further, the development delivers the arcade walkway that is sought by the Neighbourhood Plan Code and employs design outcomes for the arcade that will result in a positive pedestrian connection to Astor Terrace in future, whilst prioritizing the visual
amenity and safety of the arcade with key CPTED principals considered”.
The proposal seeks 1,273.36sqm (88%) in site cover across the 1,447sqm development site.
