Based on the application documents submitted to Brisbane City Council, the proposal is for five-storey multiple dwellings with 30 two and three-bedroom units within Stage 3A and part of Stage 3B of the Summerlin Estate at 15 Solomon St, Banyo. 

Apartments at the Stage 3A will have their own courtyards at the ground level and balconies above ground level to provide residents with a private open space. It will also feature communal open space, which has been delivered as part of earlier stages of the Summerlin Estate.

The DA also includes a total of 40 car parking spaces for residents and eight car parking spaces for visitors. Both the vehicle and pedestrian access will be via Rochat Avenue. 

Designed by Arqus Design, the buildings feature a contemporary design and assorted layouts suitable for varied households. A planning report for the DA highlighted that each unit has been designed to accommodate large internal layouts and private courtyards and balconies interfacing high quality communal open space and landscaped areas.

Aside from the DA lodged to the Brisbane City Council, developers are planning to build three more buildings (still under Council assessment) with three storeys each, in addition to townhouses currently being built. 

“The site is well serviced being in close proximity to transport, education, and community facilities, being within walking distance to Nudgee Station,” a report by Wolter Consulting Group stated.

Wolter Consulting Group has also noted that the proposal is consistent with the maximum five-storey height and provisions of the Residential Design – Medium Density Zone Under the City Plan 2000.
