^^ Honestly even the building itself looks pretty good with the curved glass and curved concrete overhangs. The greenery is definitely great as well though.

Riverfront New Farm Site Snapped up for $23m

Brisbane-based developer Tom Dooley Developments has purchased a large riverfront development site for $23 million, with early plans for a multi-million-dollar apartment development.

“What we are proposing is 15 apartments over seven levels stepping up the riverbank with a river house on the lowest level taking full advantage of the riverfront aspect, and at the top, an exquisite penthouse offering the ultimate luxury Queensland lifestyle.”

Bernard Salt's predictions for Brisbane's future
Demographer Bernard Salt gives his predictions on Brisbane's growth in the next ten or so years.

DEMAND for four-bedroom units has prompted veteran developer Kevin Seymour to redesign a luxury riverfront development.
Brisbane-based developer Seymour Group received approval in 2018 to build four unit towers along Oxlade Dr, New Farm.

Named ‘The Oxlade,’ the project had 39 units of two and three-bedroom units.

But now a dramatic shake-up of The Oxlade will see the total number of units reduced by nine, with 10 bigger four-bedroom units added to the development.

As a consequence, the number of two-bedroom units was reduced from 17 to just three and three-bedroom units from 22 to 17.

In their development application to Brisbane City Council, Seymour Group says amendments were made “as a consequence of buyers’ requirements.”

^^Good idea, Brisbane needs larger apartments to encourage potential families to live in higher density than amongst urban sprawl.

Isn't there a height restriction to about 5/6 stories now in New Farm?

I get the impression that any new development in New Farm is just going to have to be a premium development to make up for the profits lost from lack of height.

Anthology, The Oxlade, & The Maison all seem to be following in this trend...

I'm actually very fond of Glenfalloch :). It's up there with Torbreck as one of those iconic older Brisbane apartment buildings that are always in demand from the "cool" set. Both buildings are also Brisbane's only company title buildings as opposed to strata title.

^^ That is all part of it's story - when it was built, the Brisbane River was seen more like we might see a main road or highway, than the natural feature we regard it as today. Glenfalloch is today heritage listed (BCC Register), as are local 1960s contemporaries Gleneagles (twin towers in Finn's second photo) and Roseview (cnr Brunswick Street and Oxlade Drive).

I believe Craigston up on Wickham Terrace is also a company title building.
