Budget Motel makes way for apartment boom
Southeast Queensland residential developer TRK Property Group has filed plans for a twin-tower apartment development on a disused site in Indooroopilly.
The development comprises 127 residences spread over two seven-story towers and six two-story townhouses.
A budget motel will make way for the RotheLowman-designed project on the 6,169 m² site at 140 Central Avenue in Indooroopilly.
TRK Property Group plans to create a diverse range of two and three bedroom residences targeting young families and downsizers.
The six terraced houses would replace the land on which a third tower would have been built.
TRK Property Group managing director Arpan Kohli said the decision to include townhouses was aimed at improving quality of life, increasing setbacks and limiting density.
“Our vision for 140 Central Avenue is to provide an architectural outcome worthy of its prime location that meets the strong demand for high-quality apartments in the neighborhood,” Kohli said.
“We have assembled an exceptional design and project team, and we have poured our hearts into this project to bring a unique new offering to the community.”
Plans also included a swimming pool, gym, sauna, rooftop garden, informal work-from-home spaces and a children’s play area.
Rothelowman manager Duncan Betts said the design of 140 Central Avenue incorporates high levels of sustainability, landscaping, natural ventilation and resident amenity.
“This project will positively contribute to the evolution of Indooroopilly and people’s desire for the opportunity to live an environmentally responsible lifestyle that prioritizes the environment, health and well-being and a connection for people with place,” Betts said.
TRK Property Group merged all 34 condominium apartments over two years
Subject to Brisbane City Council approval, the residences are expected to hit the market in mid to late 2023.
