The Brisbane suburb of Wolloongabba will feel a little like Melbourne with the development of Trafalgar Lane, a new mixed-use residential tower costing $85 million.
The recently launched development from Pellicano
Group includes views of Brisbane city, and a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments from $345,000 at 855 Stanley Street.
Pellicano Group Queensland development manager Michael Kent said that the Trafalgar Lane design, from Melbourne laneway architect Techne Architects, is redefining the concept of inner city living.
It includes a podium at ground level, with 1,000 square metres of retail space, and a pedestrian link. This connects Stanley Street and Trafalgar Street.
“An intimate and intricately designed urban laneway – a focal point for the building and the inspiration behind the name of the new development – connects the building’s two street sides and is set to become a new destination for dining, shopping and entertainment in Brisbane,” Kent said.
“The laneway lifestyle is completely unique to Brisbane, bringing a real cosmopolitan feel to the burgeoning area of Woolloongabba.”
He noted that the area was chosen for its property fundamentals with low vacancy rates, strong median rental prices and capital growth.
DBI Design created the 20 level tower, which features 147 apartments over 15 levels and two private residence’s lifts. This will be atop a five-level podium with retail and commercial space.
“It’s been designed with the commanding views in mind, with private, noise-protected balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows. The north and west-facing apartments boast enviable views across the
Gabba to the Brisbane River and the CBD, while the southern and eastern-facing apartments offer wide open vistas towards Moreton Bay, with Norman Creek’s parklands in the foreground,” he said.
“The modern exterior is complemented by luxurious, hand-selected fittings and finishes including stone benchtops with waterfall ends, high quality tapware, joinery and integrated fridge and dishwasher, complete with crisp, clean, refined interior detailing.”
Each apartment includes a minimum of one parking space, which is flood-safe, as well as bike parking.
The development also features Trafalgar Residences’ Retreat on level six, a rooftop garden, a recreation area with pool and spa, a sauna, steam room, gym, yoga lawn, a residents’ lounge, a barbecue area and a media room.
