Duke Street, Kangaroo Point Soon to Be Home of New 86-Unit Apartment Development

Council has recently granted approval to a development proposal seeking to establish a new 86-unit apartment project on Duke Street at Kangaroo Point.



The Pelicano project will be built on a 1,400 sqm site located at 21 Duke Street, Kangaroo Point. To be called “Story House”, the eight-storey building will comprise 86 one and two-bedroom apartments plus a lap pool with a pool deck and spa, a yoga lawn, a lounge, a dining and barbecue area, and an outdoor gym.

The units at Levels 1 to 3 are designed to be “flexible’, in that they can be utilised as either short-term accommodation or multiple-dwelling units. This is to take advantage of the project’s location next to the planned Olympics Stadium. Meanwhile, the rest of the units on the above levels will be for multiple dwelling use only.

Each unit will be provided with a private open space area except for the accommodation units on levels 2 and 3 which will instead be provided with access to the rooftop open space area.

There will also be 73 parking spaces across two levels with onsite bicycle parking also provided within the bicycle parking room on the ground floor and on the basement levels.

“…the design includes warm, natural tones, textures and finishes to the building ‘base’, providing a more natural feel to the public realm and recollection of material tones historically in the area. The top section of the building responds to the current trends of the developing area, with a play on textured off white and grey finishes to break down the vertical layering of the building while emphasizing the sculptural articulation of the balcony form’ – DBI Architecture

Family-owned Pellicano also has several other developments underway including Perry House in Bowen Hills, Solarino House in Brunswick, Pivot House in Geelong and the Berwick House in Fortitude Valley.
