Plans have been lodged to build two residential towers, consisting of 320 high-density units, on Jephson Street in Toowong. Called The Edge, the buildings have a projected maximum height of 25 storeys.
Also included in the plans are 12 food and drink outlets, as well as retail spaces, on the ground floor of The Edge, which will be accessible through a new pedestrian plaza. The site will also provide communal recreational facilities on the ground floor, third floor, and rooftop.
The rooftop area will feature landscaping to connect the outdoor to the indoor lounges. On the other hand, the third level facilities will have a gym, quiet room, and swimming pool. The ground floor facilities will include function rooms, media centre, and lounge areas.
Some 450 car parking spaces and 410 bicycle parking spaces across four basement floors and the lower ground floor parking areas are also projected in the plans. Access to the parking area will be provided via an internal driveway located on Jephson Street.
“[The Edge] will have a walkable urban environment from Jephson Street and through the adjoining site to provide access to services and high-frequency public transport within the nearby Toowong Village,” per developer Ethos Urban.
The residential tower is situated in a Major Centre zone of the Toowong- Auchenflower neighbourhood plan. If approved, four existing office buildings will be demolished on the site to make space for the towers.
“The proposal is consistent with the objectives of the wider “Woolworths catalyst site”, within which the site sits, and is compatible in size and scale to the surrounding centre built form intentions,” the developer stated.
The DA was filed on December 2021 and is currently under assessment. Check out the rest of the details of the development application A005894666.
