    Eric, KangaRoo is right and who is encouraging anyone to drive to work? You can walk.ride or catch a ferry but you will probably still have a car to go to the beach, the shops or whatever. So it stays at home during the week. And in most case a 2 bed unit will have 2 people sharing and both with cars. I lived in Lambert St for 4 years and even then the parking was almost impossible. People catch the ferry but drive and leave their cars.

    penthouse units @ 100sqm… that’s laughable.

    i feel sorry for the people who live in a building like this

    This is not an attractive piece of architecture, excessively high, with the proposal not allowing for nearly enough car parking. The streets around the area are already bursting at the seams with parking a particular problem. What are the buildings green credentials? Half the size with the same amount of parking would make it more acceptable. At the moment yet another blot on the landscape. Where are the architects with vision in Brisbane?

      I have to totally disagree with you here KangaRoo. Why do we want to encourage people to drive to work and cause traffic congestion in the first place? And size is not an issue… Why should we be building short stumpy towers?? Brisbane isn’t a small town anymore!

    Can someone explain how a building can be built without allowing at least 1 carpark per unit? 239 units with 241 carparks, of which 13 are visitor carparks? The streets are chock full of vehicles now! A unit without a carpark is useless.

    Absolutely do not want another high rise in Kangaroo Point – traffic and parking will become nightmarish. Will be writing to council to oppose this DA.
