The CFMEU has submitted a development application for the construction of an enormous 30-storey building that will be home to hundreds. The project site, which is owned by the Construction Forestry Mining & Energy Industrial Union of Employees Queensland, covers large parcels on Campbell Street and Edgar Streets in Bowen Hills. This residential tower, which has retail space located on ground level, awaits approval from the council so it can start being built!
Architect Nettleton Tribe claims that the building’s material selection aims to create a distinct identity. The use of concrete, glass, and bronze medal on the ground level is intended to create a strong base while maintaining transparency with aesthetic details. Concrete landscaping, bronze perforated sheet metal, or breezeblocks create a singular façade language along three street frontages at podium levels. The tower has vertical greenery and timber design that connects the podium to the rooftop terrace, whereas concrete balconies are used for sun protection.
For those looking for a new place to live in the city, this residential development offers 53 studio units, 195 one-bedrooms, 104 two-bedrooms, and 25 three-bedroom suites. The building covers 40% of the site area with an additional 1,713 sq.m. on the podium roof and split-level roof gardens on the ground floor.
Visitors will find many amenities available at their disposal including only one driveway crossover into Edgar Street for vehicle access as well as beautifully landscaped grounds perfect for leisurely strolls or picnics! Visitors to the green headquarters can park in one of 46 shared car spots or 53 visitor-specific parking spaces. Visitors who want a more environmentally conscious mode of transportation will be happy with 200 bike racks for their bikes and an indoor pool on both levels!
You could occasionally catch a glimpse of someone in the outdoor gym, but for those who prefer to work out with their own equipment, there is ample space inside. The gardens are also worth checking out if you want some veggies or just need an escape from the city’s hustle and bustle.
