A development application for the creation of three new residential buildings on Kittyhawk Drive in Chermside has been lodged with Brisbane City Council.
The proposal, designed by Brisbane-based developer Gardener Vaughan Group, aims to create a total of 117 medium-density units that will be split into three residential towers. Each building will have a maximum height of 12 storeys over three stages, sporting a design that is consistent and in line with the rest of the residential towers in the precinct.
Comprising the building’s ground floor are two 280sqm tenancies, three building lobbies, 25 car parks, landscaping, a pedestrian plaza and accompanying pathways, and landscaping. This level will connect all three towers together.
Stage 1 will house 38 units, stage 2 will house 39 units, and stage 3 will house 40 units. With 117 units total, there will be five one-bedroom apartments, 32 two-bedroom apartments, 71 three-bedroom apartments, and nine four-bedroom apartments.
Articulated facades, open balconies and recessed walls will provide the building with natural lighting and shade. Walls will be designed in a way that incorporates splays and steps fashioned from a variety of materials — the architecture intending to complement existing developments in the area while enriching the landscape and streetscape character of Kittyhawk Drive.
All in all, the proposal will provide 279 parking spaces for automobiles in the ground floor and basement of the towers — 235 of which will be reserved for residents, 30 for visitors, and 14 for commercial use. The site will cover 15,745sqm of gross floor area, with a 1,919sqm cover of the 3,884sqm development site.
The site of the development application can be found at 75-81 Kittyhawk Drive, Chermside. Those interested in learning more about the proposed residential buildings can read about them through this council reference: A005707662
