A development application has been submitted by the Brisbane Racing Club for a 5 storey commercial office building located at Eagle Farm Racecourse.
The proposed development forms the next stage of the Eagle Farm redevelopment. It seeks to provide a new boutique commercial office development to the east of St Leger Grandstand.
Designed by BVN Architects, the project has been designed to attract tenants that are drawn to the trackside location, amenity of the site and area (with Racecourse Road and the Racecourse Village Shopping Centre in close proximity) and/or the proximity of the site to the Brisbane Airport.
The development includes the proposed refurbishment of the former Manager’s Hut for a new restaurant (café) purposes.
According to the development application, the proposed new office building has been designed to respect setbacks to St Leger Grandstand to the west and to maintain views to the Manager’s Hut from the south and north as well as maintaining views to the track from the St Leger Grandstand.
“It also incorporates a terraced façade and the use of face brick within the façade to reference the heritage buildings on the site and to sit comfortably next to Ascot House to the east.” – Urbis, Development Application.
The landscape architect for St Leger is Lat27.
