A development application has been submitted for a twelve storey residential-led development by Centa Property Group located at 4-12 Lambert Road and 7 Railway Avenue, Indooroopilly.
Designed by Rothelowman, the development comprises of x95 apartments, x4 ground floor retail tenancies as well as a publicly accessible ‘meeting corner’ space.
The proposed meeting corner will include a large subtropical tree which would provide shade and amenity to pedestrians.
Situated directly across from Indooroopilly station and Witton Barracks Park, the development’s vision is to provide different housing typologies that accommodate downsizing locals and families looking to live near parks, schools and amenity.
“The well-known housing affordability challenges associated with the recent intense uplift in the cost of single detached dwellings in the area have placed increased importance on these typologies to better serve the community seeking to live in the inner west.
In particular, residential projects of this nature have an ethical responsibility to positive contribute to society by enabling opportunities for locals aging in place and families seeking lifestyle, high quality education and proximity to public transport.
This project seeks to make a positive contribution to the public realm by providing a beneficial community offering of high quality retail and subtropical landscaping at street level with high visual amenity in the residential tower.” – Rothelowman
The project also aims to enhance the pedestrian connection to Indooroopilly Train Station from Lambert Road.
“The ground level has been designed to reinforce Lambert Road as a ‘high street’ and key pedestrian spine.” – Rothelowman
Rothelowman has designed a significant number of buildings that breathe subtropical design initiatives into the design scheme.
Some of these features include green ‘Juliette’ style balconies that wrap around apartments creating a garden connection to the outdoors as well as cross flow breezes.
These green planted buffers aim to be appreciated internally by future residents of the building, by affording them a more green outlook.
