Elenberg Fraser architects are set to design a massive multi-use project for Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, which will consist of multiple apartment buildings, a hotel, a retail precinct and a resort-style club.
The $600 million development, named FV, will be delivered across 5,000sqm and includes multiple towers totalling over 730 apartments, a 100 apartment 4.5 star hotel and a 3,188 square metre retail precinct.
A 3,000sqm residents-only resort-style club and landscaped area will contribute to the integrated living theme of the project and will be designed by 360 Landscape Architects.
The plan also includes playful amenity including a large U shaped infinity pool with an in-pool bar, private bars and barbeque areas, outdoor cinema, sun deck, gym, library and formal dining rooms that can be booked by residents.
In what will be their first Brisbane project, Elenberg Fraser says their plans respond to Brisbane’s climate, culminating in an integrated indoor/outdoor design.
“We have proposed an integrated urban resort for Fortitude Valley that celebrates the aspirational and lifestyle benefits of this great location,” says Callum Fraser, director of Elenberg Fraser.
“The master plan consists of three separate buildings, designed to respond to Brisbane’s beautiful climate, utilising indoor/outdoor living arrangements that are both affordable and highly desirable.”
Bordered by Brunswick Street, Alfred Street and Barry Parade in Fortitude Valley, the island site is 50 metres from the Fortitude Valley Train Station and 800 metres to the CBD.
The project is expected to bring approximately 2,400 direct jobs to the Fortitude Valley precinct.
Melbourne-based property developer, Gurner will develop the site and are pleased with their acquisition and feedback about the building.
“We’ve been looking for a site in Brisbane since early 2013 and maintain very strict criteria around acquisitions - this site ticks all the boxes and more,” says Gurner founder, Tim Gurner.
“We are thrilled to be able to deliver what we know will be one of Australia’s most important developments to help create the ‘Future Valley’ as Fortitude Valley transitions into one of Australia’s most active and popular locations to live and play.”
Construction is anticipated to commence in early 2015 and will take two years to complete.
