Brisbane-based developer Aria Property Group has plans for two new residential apartment towers in Brisbane’s burgeoning West End.
After snapping up the 2,835sq m site in July, Aria has quickly progressed with development plans for the 105-117 Jane Street site.
The development will be delivered over two stages and comprise a total of 145 residential dwellings along with food, beverage and office space.
Aria’s Brent Liddell said the project has an $85 million gross development value.
“We’re excited about this location,” Liddell told The Urban Developer.
“The vertical gardens take inspiration from a recent Singapore trip the entire Aria office undertook. This has resulted in gardens and trees stepping up the building’s facade."
The design is also Aria’s most heavily landscaped project with a 39 per cent green-plot-ratio.
“Council’s requirements are only 10 per cent. Making this the greenest building Aria has ever done,” Liddell said.
Architecture firm Rothelowman are at the design helm of the proposed 12-storey towers.
A communal landscaped rooftop will be accentuated by “living greenery”.
Liddell says the recreation rooftop area will offer resort style pools set amongst tropical gardens and a treehouse inspired playground.
The residential dwellings will comprise a mixture of 24 single, 93 two-bedroom, and 28 three-bedroom apartments, along with three levels of car parking with 210 parking spaces.
Brisbane's eclectic West End has been a hive of development activity over the past 12-18 months.
Japanese developer Sekisui House lodged development plans for the second stage of its $800 million West Village project in the suburb.
Crown Group has plans for a FJMT-designed, 400-apartment development after securing a site at 117 Victoria Street.
While, developer R&F Property has plans for a $500 million seven-building apartment project after acquiring the Hockings and Donkin street site for $82.5 million in 2015.
Aria is well known in the South Brisbane area, recently winning approval for the world’s tallest man-Made Waterfall development, a 118-metre high “water wall” which will span the entire height of the residential tower on 77 Hope Street.
The property group are also developing a Woods Bagot-designed 30-storey residential tower on Manning Street South Brisbane.
