BTR Residential Tower Proposed for Constance Street, Fortitude Valley

- Advertisement -

A development application has been submitted by Constance50 Pty Ltd for a 31-storey Build-to-Rent (BTR) development located at 50 Constance Street, Fortitude Valley.

While mostly a BTR development project, the tower also includes 1,700m2 of commercial office space, 619m2 of ground floor retail and 872m2 for indoor sport and recreation, with the indoor sport and recreation space providing 24-hour access to residents and also external customers.

Designed by BVN, the building would accommodate 327 apartments comprising 50 studio units, 128 one-bedroom units, 75 two-bedroom units, and 74 three-bedroom units. According to the development application this mix directly supports housing choice and diversity.

The project features a unique white perforated, light reflective facade which runs up the entirety of the tower.

“The curved sculptural tower form, coupled with fluted façade, bespoke window shading and subtropical landscaping creates a decorative, yet dynamic street presence, promoting natural ventilation and lighting.” – BVN

Level 04 contains a variety of residential amenities, including a gym, lounge area, ‘Work From Home’ recreation zone and the residential management office. The consolidation of these services on this level ensures residents have ease of access to services.

    Seems like a lot of parking for a building in the middle of the Valley and close to the train station. Once again there will be a dead podium of car parks rather than a podium wrapped with active uses. I expect BCC will waive that through as they always do – the car is king in Brisbane, even in the inner city.

    What a strange odd and rather ugly looking building. No thanks .

    Are the hundreds of other buildings around the CBD collapsing in wind and flooding streets with sewerage? Of course these things would be considered, it is required by law…

    It would be interesting to hear what Richards and Spence think about this podium design.

    Is the facade actually fireproof?
    Is the local sewerage system able to cope with the extra load?
    Is the design tested in high winds and cyclonic weather?
    How is the facade going to be maintained to appear white rather than dirty grey?

    Build to Rent? – So exactly like every other tower approved for a donor in the last ten years, with the quiet part said outloud.
