Over nine levels, this outstanding Fortitude Valley development offers a mix of 111 apartments consisting of one bedroom, one bathroom and two bathroom apartments, many with additional study nooks. Three ground-floor apartments enjoy generous courtyards, while all upper level residences have spacious balconies or terraces.
Residents can immerse themselves in the atmosphere of live music, art, culture, fine dining, fashion, shopping and nightlife. ‘The Valley’ has long been a favourite destination for eating and drinking, taking in live music or exploring the famous markets. Now this historic area, where heritage listed buildings rub shoulders with contemporary towers, has become Brisbane’s residential hot spot. Today’s new urban dwellers revel in its mix of the elegant and the offbeat – and in its proximity to the CBD, high-end shopping and hundreds of entertainment venues.
Yet despite the energy of Brisbane’s premier entertainment district, the apartments will remain peaceful. There’s no through traffic in the street, so there’s no peak-hour congestion. What’s more, solid construction makes each apartment a quiet retreat from the bustle outside.
Architects Cottee Parker have designed the development to respond to its Fortitude Valley location. This is no anonymous box. Apartments at the upper levels are set back to create a stepped facade, with larger terraces on some levels allowing for landscaping. Extended sunhoods provide depth and shadowing for the glazing and the balconies. At ground level, the residential foyer and commercial tenancies will actively engage with the street.
