Queensland-based property development company, Turrisi Properties, has unveiled a striking new boutique residential project in Brisbane’s trendy West End – The Glass Factory.
Designed by award-winning RotheLowman White Architects, the residential tower has been inspired by West End's traditional building styles, where luxury meets industrial chic.
The development offers a mix of 47 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, with prices starting from $370,000.
Located at 57 Vulture Street, the site was once home to the Decorative Glass Company – a history which is imbued in the architectural design of The Glass Factory, enabling it to retain a connection to the heritage of one of Brisbane's oldest and most vibrant suburbs.

Jeff Brown, Prinicpal of RotheLowman White Architects in Brisbane said The Glass Factory offers a unique opportunity to reinvigorate the West End precinct.
“Everything about the vibrant mixed-use development draws from its context as it seamlessly transitions to the character residential neighbourhood directly behind,” Mr Brown said.
“The design reflects the eclectic nature of traditional building forms within the West End peninsula and provides a contemporary interpretation of the varied styles found within the suburb.
“The Glass Factory's architectural expression is a singular, cohesive and respectful addition to what is a highly desired location for living, working and playing."
Sliding weathered copper screens cloak the northern face of the building’s design, while earthy bronze tones pay homage to the iconic sunset views over Mt Coot-tha.
Seamless balconies provide easy connections to the outdoors, maximising enjoyment of Brisbane's sub-tropical lifestyle and offering views to the city skyline and village rooftops, or to Mt Coot-tha.
At ground level, select mix of retail will provide convenience and café or dining options, activating the streetscape to maintain the ‘real inner city neighbourhood feel’ for which West End is renowned.
