I do worry a little thought with Brisbane's 274m height limit with this tower, 300 George, Brisbane Skytower and that proposed Albert Street tower all reaching between 270-274m.... they're all going to have a plateauing effect on the BNE skyline??

ARIA gains approval for 82-storey apartment tower in Brisbane
Brisbane residential property developers ARIA have been given approval for a new 82-storey residential tower in the heart of Brisbane city.



Designed by architects Rothelowman, the tower at 171 Edward Street is set to become one of Brisbane's tallest buildings and deliver a new standard for residential development within the central business district.

ARIA managing director Tim Forrester declined to comment on the approval saying it was still at early stages. Brisbane is facing some questions around apartment oversupply, which analysts say could come as early as next quarter. Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has already warned that the city's apartment boom is coming to an end.

ARIA, an established, multi award-winning developer, prefers to stay below the radar on its developments, but is known for its transformation of the riverside suburb of South Brisbane and its apartment projects.

The new proposed CBD tower will feature a mix of one- and two-bedroom dwellings across a total 652 apartments.

"The project at 171 Edward Street is set to become a world-class residential development that positively enhances Brisbane CBD's emerging reputation as a highly livable civic centre," Rothelowman principal Jeff Brown said.

The curved, gold facade of the tower will draw heavily on the form of Constantin Brancusi's Bird in Space – a series of 16 sculptures created between 1923 to 1940 that communicate the notion of flight.

"The design intent is to reinforce the slender nature of the tower proportions through the refinement of a simple, singular and organic form that is contextually responsive," Mr Brown said.

In keeping with architect's tradition of designing interactive vertical communities, 171 Edward Street will be opened up to the wider neighbourhood through a four-storey podium featuring more than 2100 square metres of retail and commercial space.

Residents of 171 Edward Street will also be provided with more than 3000 sq m of communal residential recreation space, the largest offering in the Brisbane CBD for one building. Extensive amenity in the form of "recreation floors" on levels four, five and six will include a residents' bar, theatre, karaoke bar, dining, gym, yoga studio and residents' lounge, large landscaped roof garden, lap pool and spa.

"Wind engineering objectives are addressed through the 'roughening' effect of the open corners and asymmetry of the building form."

The "peeling" corners provide visual asymmetry and create opportunities for maximising views from corner balconies, gardens and living spaces.
