From: http://brisbanedevelopment.com/grey-street-tower-arias-latest-proposal/



Aria Property Group has submitted a DA for a 18 level residential tower situated at 77 Grey Street, South Brisbane, on the corner of Fish Lane and Grey Streets.

According to the DA, the tower is known as ‘Grey Street Tower’ and sits directly opposite the newly renovated Queensland Museum.

Like Fish Lane Apartments, which is now under construction, the Grey Street Tower has also been designed to embrace Fish Lane with three new laneway tenancies facing directly onto the Laneway and one bar/lounge facing Grey Street. The retail tenancy sizes range from 30 sqm to 126 sqm for a corner cafe/restaurant.

The project features a rooftop recreation deck, complete restoration of a turn-of-the-century character commercial building that will integrate visually within the existing character streetscape to the south and an interchangeable art wall and green wall.



The site is envisaged as a catalyst for Fish Lane development and the starting point for pedestrian linkages through to South Brisbane and West End.

Fish Lane has become a key focus of the Brisbane City Council’s vibrant laneways program which sets out to transform underutilized inner city spaces and laneways into loved, vibrant places. Several years ago Archipelago was commissioned by Urban Renewal Brisbane – City Centre Masterplan Team to undertake a public realm concept design for Fish Lane in South Brisbane. The masterplan can be viewed here.

The design also seeks to provide a corner retail tenancy fronting the rail line to provide opportunities for open air venue events that may be fleshed out in any future Fish Lane concept developments.

The project has been designed by Rothe Lowman architects who also designed Aria’s 30 level Edmondstone Street proposal.

Project Facts:

Site area: 1050 sqm
18 levels (including rooftop terrace)
106 car parks
GFA 9190 sqm
84 x 1 Bedroom units (80%)
36 x 2 Bedroom units (20%)
120 units total
DA number: A003412958

Way to go ARIA! When the site went up for sale, I was worried about the corner building because it wasn't heritage listed like the two former bank buildings opposite were, but ARIA have pulled out the best possible solution for it, restoring and retaining the facades on Grey Street and Fish Lane, and adding laneway tenancies as well! The red brick portion on the right of the Grey Street frontage will be constructed from reclaimed bricks recycled from the building on site they'll be demolishing, which is another nice touch.

nice. i love integration of old and new and how the existing building is being retained in form and stripped back to red brick - kinda similar look to the stockland building that backs onto fish lane further down the Melbourne St.

Nice. What was Brisbane's obsession with painting over brickwork - was it a case of "oh there's a crack paint over it and it'll go away?"

That looks great! Right next door to my uni too! So if anything happens in the next 2 years I'll have it covered! ;) Will make the area look so much better!

ARIA seems to have a pretty good track record when it comes to its South Brisbane/West End developments. Hopefully we'll see it rising pretty soon!
Great! Really like the look of it! Any chances of something getting built across the laneway as well? Or even if they just redid the pathway out the front! Bitumen as a pathway never looks good!

^^ On the otherside of Fish Lane? It would be harder, as the building on that side (former CBA Branch) is BCC Heritage listed, while its neighbour on the corner (former NAB Branch) is state heritage listed. Maybe, as the area improves, council might go through and upgrade the footpath along there?
