The Aria Property Group has proposed the construction of a 30-storey tower with 256 apartments in South Brisbane. The development, designed by Woods Bagot, follows the successful completion of group’s project The Standard, a nearby 31-storey tower with 264 apartments and Australia’s largest green wall.
Located at 10-14 Cordelia Street, Aria’s new tower would comprise a mix of one, two, three, and four-bedroom apartments, arranged in eight cylindrical forms bundled into a singular tower with a distinctive chandelier-like crown profile. The building’s podium facade would feature Aria’s signature green walls, while the ground floor would incorporate brick finishes that pay homage to South Brisbane’s rich character and heritage.
The proposed development continues Aria’s tradition of creating sculptural curved built forms that distinguish themselves from the area’s prevailing rectilinear urban form. It features an architecturally designed podium and streetscape interface made up of curved vertical cylinder forms and draping lush green walls at the entrance. The tower volume is articulated as a series of cylindrical forms, with a feature ‘crown’ that creates a recognisable feature on the South Brisbane skyline. The Woods Bagot building design aims to stitch the landscape, architecture, and art into a singular sculptural built form.
The development would incorporate five levels of basement car parking, a four-storey podium, 26 storeys of residential units, and an unroofed and unenclosed communal recreation area at the roof level. Communal recreation areas would also be available on the ground level. The proposed communal recreation space would span 1417sq m throughout the development, while the lobby level would feature work-from-home spaces and private offices surrounded by landscaped outdoor areas. The rooftop garden terrace would span 881sq m, featuring outdoor seating and dining options, cinema garden pods, lounge beds, and a large swimming pool.
The Cordelia Street tower project had been designed to fit in with the existing style and feel of the surrounding streetscapes, including Fish Lane, which Aria had helped revitalise and redevelop along with Brisbane City Council. The proposed development would replace two 2 to 3-storey commercial buildings on the site. Adjoining the site’s north-eastern corner is St Mary’s Catholic Church, which is listed on both the Queensland State Heritage Register and the Local Heritage Register. A filed heritage impact assessment indicates that the proposed development’s form, bulk, and proximity would not have any adverse impacts on the cultural heritage significance of St Mary’s Catholic Church State Heritage Place. Urbis town planning group have assisted with the groups application for the project.
The Aria Property Group continue to be prolific south side of the Brisbane river, with their Rivière project in Kangaroo Point nearing completion, and the launch of Canopy House in the same suburb selling quickly in their recent sales launch.
