Twin Towers Proposed for Kangaroo Point in Brisbane

Brisbane, Australia – 02 March 2017

A development application has been submitted by Kangaroo Point Brisbane Pty Ltd to develop a vacant parcel of land at 25 Ferry Street, Kangaroo Point into a twin 20-story residential development.

Designed by A+ Design Group, the development includes 102 residential apartments, three ground floor retail spaces, a resident’s pool and gym on podium level, and four penthouse apartments that include their own private rooftop pool. According to application documents, the majority of the proposed apartments are naturally ventilated – including communal spaces – with no single aspect south-facing apartments proposed.

Lat27 Architects has designed the landscape concept plan for the proposed development, which has been inspired by fig trees in the rainforests of southeast Queensland.

The project’s architectural statement says that the development represents a climate responsive design, incorporating natural ventilation and subtropical planting that enables a comfortable, passive, low-technology, high-ambience, and sustainable urban living outcome.

168 resident parking spaces are proposed for three basement levels, along with 16 visitor and three retail parking spots, plus resident and visitor bicycle storage. 2,070 square meters of area will be allocated to communal open space.
