Cbus Property Proposes 30-Storey Residential Tower for Spring Hill

- Advertisement -

A development application has been submitted by Cbus Property for a 30-storey residential building comprising of 125 apartments located at 185 Wharf Street, Spring Hill.

Designed by Rothelowman, the project features a unique truss and grid architectural style.

A full floor recreation deck is proposed on level 2 as well as a large subtropical plaza area on the ground level.

The double height recreation level, known as ‘The Conservatory’ is split into a range of zones which would feature a lap pool, spa pool, sun lounge area, turfed lawn area, BBQ area, gym and dining room.

A highly pedestrianised ground level is proposed which includes a new cross-block link from Wharf Street to Carrol Lane.

According to architect Rothelowman, the building has been designed with Brisbane’s subtropical climate at the forefront, adopting the principles of a front yard and backyard as its design ethos for the internal and external living space for every apartment.

“While aspirations of subtropical design manifest in Queensland’s renown bespoke residential detached architecture, they have not typically been accessible to people seeking higher density housing models.

In a local context, it is suggested that multiple dwelling architecture could benefit from the learnings prevalent in the ‘New Queensland House’ that are founded on Queensland’s strong domestic architectural history.

This is exemplified by an approach that considers flexible living arrangements, a strong connection between inside and outside and innovative use of materials in construction. These broader objectives are explored in the project at multiple scales that encapsulate the architecture, interiors and resident recreation amenity.” – Rothelowman

    This is terrible for Spring Hill. What a boring building THAT DOESN’T suit the area. Terrible outcome if this goes ahead.
