Thought as it now falls under a new name it should maybe have a new thread. I'm not sure of the finer details as the sign just says "The Macrossan Apartments-One Apartment Per Floor", so very similar to Domaine, not sure if height, design etcetera has changed...

Somehow said it said 'hotel' as well, is it mixed-use now?

Chatted to the real estate guy who said it was:

37 floors
32(?) units covering the entire floor units,
The same exclusive stuff as domain (cellar, wine tasting bar etc. etc.

He also said the design of the building will be released on Saturday!!

Looks like they've cut a lot of height off it, prob about 120-130 metres now. Disapointing, Domain was one of my favourits!

Ah well 160m to 130m, doesn't make that much difference, it was never one of my favs, can't say I'll lose sleep over it. Hope the design is good.

Density is fine. Its not like petrie bight can really be saved in terms of design.
:) thank-god it didn't die though.

Oh, and next time someone creates a thread on a project, please use the proper title format.

Hmmmm............Now it will just blend in with the rest of the shit there. Oh well, hopefully it's nothing like the rot that Devine managed to rustle up for that area.

Chances are that it will just dissapear with Skyline, emerald and 549(?) taking the limelight and the focus in that area. You probably wont see much over the Devine garbage there.

So is Petrie Bight the name for this area?

I happen to think The Marriot is one of if not the best looking Brisbane towers, and with Customs House just down the road I think it has great architecture. Hopefully The Macrossan will stick with the vintage look, or go ultra modern, for diversity.

Found the website for this project - www.macrossanapartments.com.au Nothing to see really, just an expression of interest form but worth keeping an eye on.

So 37 storeys with only 32 apartments - that good value for your skyscraper!! River Place has only one more storey but has almost 10 times more apartments (with 311) :)

If it isn't tall, I'm hoping it'll be a stunner to look at up close. This will be really the only vantage point you'll get of this one!

It was interesting to note on that website, that Macquarie was one of the involved parties along with Ubran Pacific. I didnt think Macquarie did this sort of development stuff?

I reckon the tower will look similar to the tower they have as the logo for the Marcrossan.

Interesting you spotted that rivercity - I also noticed and was a bit intrigued - but can't shed any more light unfortunately.

Yeh, i'll ask my brother what he can find out, as he works in the sydney office of Macquarie Bank...although its more the investment banking section...needless to say, he might be able to find something out.
