Architectual rendering of updated design for 108 Lambert Street, Kangaroo Point

A development application has been submitted by Pikos Group for the reconfiguration of an existing approved three-tower development application located at 108 Lambert Street, Kangaroo Point.

The proposal is largely consistent with the existing proposal however, building heights and dwelling have increased from the previous approved proposal.

Designed by Kris Kowalski Architects, the proposed changes include x100 new apartment dwellings achieved through increases of heights from 10 storeys to 15 storeys in each highrise building.

The development would be delivered via a three staged program.

  1. These towers are too close together. Not allowing light between them. Buyers will not be interested in being squashed in without any open spaces between buildings. Street parking will be an issue. It is now. Most people have 2/3 cars per lot.

  2. Really a 50% increase in density and an expectation that this is good for the community. I’m assuming these are for overseas student units. seems a grab for money without any benefits to the local community.

  3. Absolutely ridiculous! Talk about squashing buildings in to a small space for maximum $return. There is no parking now on the streets as council would know already and no room for Large trucks to manoeuvre. Residents are sick to death of the construction in this area. Dirt dust and noise 6 days a week ! The green building still has NO ONE living in it after 8 months of completion.

  4. This is a great development, honestly they should go even taller. With the pedestrian bridge to the CBD from Kangaroo Point underway, it’ll be an attractive suburb to live in. Hopefully there will be some developments that include affordable housing, such as build-to-rent places with weekly rent under $300-400. Because to be honest, we have more than enough rich people housing in this city. Way too much, even.

  5. Very sad that that the developer has ignored the request to have the Riverwalk extension included as part of their proposal. What this effectively does is prevent the Riverwalk being extended from Kangaroo Point through to Mowbray Park along the Brisbane River. Big loss for the greater community.

  6. I agree with Chris. River walks and bicycle paths are an integral part of most new develops – look at KSD, gateway bridge duplication, new development under Indooropillli bridge etc. Seems ludicrous not to insist that this development doesn’t extend the walkway required to be built in front of Castlebar and the other unit blocks down near Mowbray Park. That pathway would be a great asset for the community. It will need to be buit eventually – seems sensible to have the developer pay for it as part of its social obligation to the community rather than the rate payer in years to come who will have to foot the bill for a more expensive river based walkway.
    It also seems inconsistent with other developments to have such a high building so close to the river as tower 1 appears to be. It should be kept at its original height and moved back in line with the other units in that stretch of the river down to Mowbray Park.

  7. I would leave a reply if I thought it would make one iota of difference. I fought against the “green block” Lambert Street which sits empty to this day after all the uproar made by owners in the area it went ahead. You can’t fight ” City Hall ” I guess it must be the number of rates notices each of these “grotescue” buildings produce. Regardless of people harnessing their best effort these unsightly edifices will go ahead too. That the Developers and their architects have had the “cheek” to push their boundaries even higher is testament to how they are received in “City Hall” Save your ire until you can go to the ballot box as it is all that is left to us who are never consulted??

  8. Sick of high rise development on lambert st. My front door is 20 meters from the existing current homes that will be demolished for this and it will be the 6th high rise within 200 meters of our home in the last 4 years. Just stop. Give the residents a chance to sleep, park and live peacefully. God knows we pay enough to live here!

  9. This is a development that maximises density with no consideration for the adverse impacts on traffic and local community. It is inconceivable that the development does not impose a contribution to the extension of the walkway from Mowbray Park to Dockside. Already the hill creates a major issue for many residents in KP and encourages car usage, not what the community wants. How can a development of this type be increased in density with poor architectural components; 400+ car spaces make any sense on an already congested narrow road? This makes a mockery of the KP development plan of which so much work for community feedback was gathered. Russell Skinner.

  10. This is a great development which will bring much needed more gentrification to the area whilst also establishing the inner city fringe as a bustling area. Like that it includes rooftop amenity to maximise the views.

  11. Extending the Riverwalk and cycling infrastructure should be prioritised by the council rather than an application for cash-grab over-sized apartment buildings. I definitely think a development of only two towers spaced out and set further back from Lambert street with a more reasonable height would win public favour.

    With the foot bridge being built between between KP and the city a more reasonable venture could still prove advantageous and adding some public green space at the front or rear of the property should be necessary for approval.

    If the developers actually ingratiate the property into the neighbourhood and make that its selling point rather than another contentious cash-grab despised by the locals.
