Mosaic Property Group has submitted a development application for an 8-storey residential development located at 89 Lytton Road, East Brisbane.
The development has been designed by DKO Architecture and comprises of 81 apartments across seven habitable levels.
The ground floor consists of two retail tenancies as well as a residential gym and wellness centre and community use space.
According to the development application, the building’s design has been inspired by Mowbray Park’s Moreton Bay Fig trees with sculptured columns that anchor the building and provide a unique identity to the public interface.
“The form along Lytton Road is broken up into four smaller towers through a break in the middle and 2 large slots to each end.”
“These four elements fold in the vertical and horizontal plane, creating a sense of movement in the facade. The
solid balustrades provide protection and privacy from Lytton Road.” – DKO Architecture

We would oppose this build on the grounds that traffic to and from the BCBD is already congested to breaking point . Access to the public pool and recreational park and river nearby is already compromised and dangerous . HOWEVER If public swimming and gyms were made availability to local residents then the this May make the the added inconvenience and congestion worthwhile .
