Devine have submitted an application for a tower at the corner of Margaret and Albert Streets.

Application number: A002982245

Just trying to work out the specs from the hard to read plans.

Height = 129m/37st
Use = 420 Residential units (1 bed and 2 bed units only) + retail and a very small amount of office.

IMO it is very Q1esk without the spire.

I think they should have a minimum height in the inner city, 200m would be good :)

Why don't they build taller towers? we want taller towers !!!

I like it. Looks like a nice filler.

Better than a smack in the mouth. But a wasted opportunity to have a very dominating skyscraper that would be visible for miles.

Not too bad on paper, though of course will all come down to the materials used... Which, for Devine, never holds too much promise (at least for their resi projects...)

It doesn't look too bad...on the render at least.

Part of the development includes the removal of the gradient in Beatrice Lane, which is heritage listed, so I wonder if that might cause issues... They will be keeping and reinstalling the embedded Brisbane Tuff, but it is still possible it might become an issue...

^^ I kind of agree about the red stripes looking dated already. They should make them horizontal LED lighting. Would look amazing at night, like the Hard Rock hotel Macau.
