A development application has been lodged for 50 Multiple Dwellings within a residential tower development, located 169 Wellington Road, East Brisbane.

A laneway is provided on the ground floor to provide a cross-block laneway (Wellington Road to Manilla Street), which will landscaped and designed well to incourage use.

The proposal provides 113 car parking both the two basements and ground floor levels. The basement will provide 100 residential car park spaces and the ground floor provides 13 visitor spaces. Access rom the basement and ground floor car parks will be from Wellington Road. 38 bicycle parking spaces are provided across the ground floor of the residential buildings.

The planners at DTS Group Qld state, “The proposed development is for a high-quality contemporary design apartment building, which will positively contribute to the Wellington Road/Lytton Road Precinct and the Manilla Street Sub-Precinct. It will result in a highly desirable urban environment with an interesting building design that addresses the Wellington Road frontage and the laneway (“Raymond Lane”) and provides an
articulated built form that is of an appropriate residential scale sensitive to the local context. The design intent is to contribute positively to the image, quality and overall identity of East Brisbane with a resolved and expressive built form and considered street frontage.”.

“The architectural drawings have been prepared based on the unique site context and character, Brisbane’s sub-tropical climate and outcomes sought by the Brisbane City Plan 2014. The subject site is identified as a “significant corner site” under the Kangaroo Point South Neighbourhood Plan and requires the partial delivery of a laneway along the northern boundary to ultimately connect through to Manilla Street. The built form response is that of a corner building with equal hierarchy given to the laneway and Wellington Road frontages. Accordingly, the northern and western elements of the building are designed as “public” frontages with large balconies overlooking the laneway, street and park. The public façades not only respond to, and connect with the laneway and street, they also provide orientation to the north and city views to the west and north-west”.

A proposed seeks a site coverage of 1,196.44sqm (73.9%) of the overall 1,619sqm site area.
