Plans have been lodged to build two mixed-use towers opposite Westfield Garden City in one of Brisbane's fastest-growing suburbs on the southside.
The application by Hastone Australia includes 10 and 15-storey towers with 112 residential apartments, 630sq m ground floor retail, six levels of office space and end-of-trip facilities at 2188-2196 Logan Road, Upper Mount Gravatt.
This is the first development application for the 4589sq m, L-shaped site, which currently has three houses on the road side and vacant land extending back more than 90m.
The plans by Mode architects show the majority of commercial space, including 6980sq m of office space, will be in the smaller southern tower with its four-storey podium.
The apartments will be at the back of the site in the taller and longer northern tower with a mix of one, two and three-bedroom units as well as a gym/functions room.
“The towers are thoughtfully designed and the appearance of building bulk is reduced through variations in horizontal and vertical profile,” the development application reads.
“The walkways at each of the residential levels in the northern tower are open to the east and west and serve to break up the length of the north tower, while also providing opportunities for vertical greenery.”
Hastone, led by Yingxin Han, previously received approval for a nine-storey development with 93 units at 92-96 Hornibrook Esplanade, Clontarf in 2018, which was also designed by Mode and is yet to be built.
The Brisbane residential market has been boosted by a surge in interstate migration, however, this is yet to have a major impact on the apartment prices which have only increased 1.1 per cent during the past year compared to 5.9 per cent for houses.
