A development application has been submitted by Zagame 72 James Street Pty Ltd for a six storey commercial building located at 72-76 James St, Fortitude Valley.

Designed by Cavill Architects, the proposal seeks to retain the corner commercial character building while establishing a new building that incorporates contemporary architectural and sub-tropical design elements.

As part of ground floor activation plans, a new open space is planned to be built within an ‘outdoor city room’ as well as two large new retail spaces on the ground level.

According to the development application, the proposed development has been designed to prioritise pedestrian access with activity focused around James Street.

    The ugliest thing I’ve ever seen and so out of context next to workers’ cottages.

    Love the bricks. The columns look glorious and earthy bricks seem incapable of dating. Beautiful fusion of the contemporary, heritage, and subtropical elements that make up the beautiful city of Brisbane. This one is a winner for me
