A development application has been submitted by the CFMEU for a 30 storey Build-to-Rent residential development project located at 19-25 Campbell Street, Bowen Hills.

The project site, which is owned by the Construction Forestry Mining & Energy Industrial Union of Employees Queensland is a large parcel of land that fronts Campbell, Hazelmount and Edgar Streets.

The proposed development is of a tower on podium form with residential uses within tower levels, and retail uses located on ground.

According to architect Nettleton Tribe, the building’s material selection aim to create a distinct identity.

The use of concrete, glass, and bronze metal on the ground level are intended to create a strong base while maintaining a level of transparency with aesthetic details. Concrete, landscaping, bronze perforated sheet metal, and breezeblocks create a singular banded façade language to the podium levels along the three street frontages.

The tower materials incorporates timber and greenery to vertically connect the podium to the rooftop terrace, whereas concrete balconies and edges are used to express the horizontal which also maintain sufficient sun protection to the apartments glazing. – Nettleton Tribe

    It’s good that it will take some focus off the adjacent building but otherwise it’s about average of what a building can be.

    The idea is great, but the rentals may be higher than most people can afford. It appears so many of these buildings will come up at the same time…..
