Eight-Storey Mixed Use Tower Proposed for Main Street Kangaroo Point

A development application has been lodged for an eight-storey mixed-use development at 624 Main Street Kangaroo Point.

Based on the application lodged by Urban Strategies on behalf of developer Peter Yang, the multi-residential tower will feature ground floor retail tenancies and will replace the old Kangaroo Point motel currently on the site if approved.

Designed by Red Door Architecture, the tower would have 52 two-bedroom units and 16 three-bedroom units, a total of 68 apartment units in all. The design plans showed there will be 88 carparks and an 85-bicycle parking.

The building will adhere to Brisbane government’s “Buildings That Breathe” design guideline, which calls for provision of lush landscaping, shade and comfort in new buildings that will be built in the city.

It’s been a while since a major application like this was proposed in the riverside Kangaroo Point. If approved, this will likely accommodate the increasing number of people in the suburb.

Kangaroo Point is the most densely populated suburb in Brisbane, according to the 2018 report by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The latest data revealed there are 9152 people living within just 1.3 square kilometres in the suburb.

Due to the growing population in Kangaroo Point, Brisbane City Council is planning to allow developments that can go up to 20 storeys. The existing Kangaroo Point Peninsula Neighbourhood Plan limits buildings in the peninsula to 10 storeys.
