The Gabba’s first taste of 30 storeys


Woolloongabba’s largest development project to date has been proposed for the high growth activity centre.

DA SUBMITTED: BT Hotels and Property Group have submitted a proposal to build a large development comprised of three residential towers with heights of 30, 25 and 20 storeys. The proposal is in accordance with the SEQ Regional Plan which lists Woolloongabba as a Major Activity Node. Shown below is the proposed Cross River Rail route which is going to be located directly opposite this new development, which is why this project is allowed to have greater heights.

Short term accommodation has also been proposed. The DA number for this development is: A003071741

The three towers will have a total of 502 one and two bedroom apartments.

1 Bed Units – 149
2 Bed Units – 50
Total – 234

The development has been designed by Kris Kowalski Architects, who also designed Baroque Tower, 212 Margaret St, Vue Apartments and SOHO – West End. The project has three street frontages Hubert, Reid and Stanley Streets.

    I would like to enquire about the floor plan and price of the proposed residential towers that will be built in the Woolloongabba area. We would like to buy an investment property in the future.
