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.
