A development application has been submitted for a 25-storey residential tower by Anthony John Group located at 50 McDougall Street, Milton.

Designed by bureau^proberts, the tower has been inspired by the popular Melaleuca Paper Bark tree which is found throughout the Milton area and follows an organic ovular shape floor plate as the building rises.

The irregular shape of the tower, inspired by the organic growth of a tree would also feature green pockets of landscaping throughout as well as a veil that wraps around the building to assist with providing privacy and solar shading.

“The colours of the trunk of a Melaleuca of white, tan and grey are reflected in the elemental screen of the tower and podium.” – bureau^proberts

    Two driveway entrances? Terrible for the streetscape and frontage activation. Drive-up highrises are not a good form of development, especially in Milton where there are good public and active transport links

    A stunning addition to the ever changing and growing skyline of Brisbane! Imagine driving down Coro drive or taking the city cat along the Brisbane River and seeing a forested row of sustainable, breathing highrises and skyscrapers! Projects like this are much needed to replace many of the uninspiring and outdated low-rises in that stretch of the city!

    Such a vista would certainly be impressive to behold come the 32′ Olympic Games and beyond!
