Kangaroo Point To Swell With Proposals For 26 Units Across 24 Storeys


Brisbane's Newstead Series developer JGL Properties has submitted a development application at 11 Thornton Street Kangaroo Point which the company says "will not unreasonably impact on the residential amenity of its adjoining buildings at 2 Scott Street or 301 Main Street".

A separate development application by different developers has been submitted at 98 River Terrace Kangaroo Point for a five storey multi-unit dwelling. 

JGL have proposed a 19 storey multiple dwelling with a small-scale café food and drink outlet tenancy on the ground floor. A total area of 218 sqm is provided on the site for communal open space, equating to approximately 29 per cent of the total site area.

The proposal consists of 16 full floor residential apartments with alternating layouts to create different product and architectural variation, as well as one 3 bedroom apartment as part of a restoration of a heritage building on site.
