The 49 apartment units are broken down into 19 single bedroom units, 8 two-bedroom, 16 three-bedroom units and 6 four-bedroom units. A covered rooftop with a communal swimming pool, barbecue facilities and gym are also proposed. 

Designed by Gardner Vaughan Group, the podium will feature a brick arch built form to visually present the two levels as a single component whilst a large public art mural located at the Danby Lane frontage is also proposed.

The proposed podium will be two storeys high and will comprise 568sqm of office space and recreation area for the residential building. The covered area of the proposed site allocated for the podium up to the second level and the residential tower is 82.1 per cent and 62.6 per cent, respectively.

“The distinctive face brick and arches provide visual texture to the streetscape and a reference to the Nundah State School and the former telephone exchange located at 99 Buckland Road”

Urban Strategies

The pool and barbecue area will cover a total of 284sqm. A rooftop garden will also be provided that will have a combined area of 230sqm comprising covered and uncovered landscaped areas.

There will be 132 car parking spaces – 83 for residents, 36 for commercial uses and 13 for visitors – spread across five basement levels which will be provided from Danby Lane.



To facilitate the development, the existing two commercial buildings and their associated caretaker dwellings will be demolished.
