A development application has been submitted by Forme for the construction of a 5-storey residential apartment development located at 31 Doggett Street, Teneriffe.
The project has been designed by Richards and Spence, who are responsible for crafting the James Street precinct’s unique brutalist architectural identity.
“Richards and Spence has been critical to the ongoing evolution of the James Street Precinct through a series of independent projects including small infill commercial office spaces scattered throughout each sub-site and largely invisible to the casual visitor.”
“Each project shares common goals: the creation of a permeable ground plane of external spaces, enhancing the streetscape and contributing to a campus identity.” – Richards and Spence.
The proposal includes 551m2 of retail across four ground floor tenancies which is anticipated to accomodate a mix of shops, restaurants and cafes.
The adjoining Midvale Lane would be activated with the retail tenancies orientated towards the laneway.

- GFA: 4,190m2
- Height: 6 storeys + rooftop / RL 38.85m

Forme has recently consolidated the 2,600sqm proposed site over a six month period in 2020.
