New BTR Tower To Rise in Chermside

An exciting, new BTR tower, standing at an impressive 10 storeys tall, is set to grace the ever-growing Chermside community.

Developed by Melbourne-based company TAL GP Projects and submitted as DA A006394601, the tower was designed with the needs of Chermside locals in mind, particularly those who are essential workers.

Strategically located on Kelso Street, the skyscraper offers convenient access to major transportation routes, public transit, the popular Westfield Chermside, and necessary infrastructure such as the Prince Charles Hospital. The highly-coveted location brings numerous advantages to residents of Chermside.

The tower’s architectural style is modern, distinct, and sophisticated, resulting in a comfortable and engaging living area. Indoor communal areas, co-working spaces, communal gardens, and a rooftop with outdoor facilities, a pool, and recreational spaces will be available to residents.

Parking is usually an issue in Chermside, and the tower plans address this as well. There will be parking for 167 cars and 282 bicycles on two and a half basement levels, contributing to a sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle.

According to the developer, the project not only tackles Chermside’s housing shortage, it also helps to revitalise an underutilised area of the suburb.
