Located on a 3,287square metre site, 57 Coronation Drive project will deliver 255 premium residential apartments, a five-star serviced apartment building, premium commercial offices and podium-level shopping and dining across this two 30 and 35-storey buildings. Maple Development Group has received the green light with DA granted by a full council meeting on Tuesday 16 May 2020, following recommendation of the planning committee.
The DA approval announcement news was published by most of the local and interstate media outlets. This includes the Channel 7 coverage which was syndicated to nine different locations across Queensland.
Rothelowman Principal Jeff Brown, who led the project design, said the Queensland-inspired subtropical design closely followed Brisbane City Council’s New World City Design Guide: Buildings that Breathe.
“The project’s residential apartments will introduce a new level of luxury living to the area, with premium facilities and green spaces which make the most of river and city views, including swimming pool, gymnasium, multiple private and communal sky gardens and rooftop recreational spaces,” Mr Brown said.
The public realm will also reconnect Brisbane’s residents with one of the city’s oldest heritage buildings, Davidson’s Residence, built in 1868 and hidden for decades at the rear of the site’s existing commercial building.
Director of Planning at Urbis Ben Lyons said the project has already become an exemplar for ‘good development’.
“This project responds to its context and gives back to the City through the provision of generous public realm. Importantly, the design not only respects the heritage significance of Davidson’s Residence as a reminder of our past – it also exemplifies, at this important gateway location to the CBD, our future as a design-led City with a distinctive identity.”
The project boasts proximity to Roma Street Station, Caxton Street, Suncorp Stadium, the future Brisbane Live precinct and South Brisbane via the Go Between and William Jolly Bridges.
