CLIENT: Wostex
BUDGET: approx. $17,000,000 AUD
YEAR COMPLETED: DA completed 2008
DESIGN / DOCUMENTATION: DA documentation – 4 mths (not inc. council approvals)
PROJECT TYPE: Multi-Residential
LOCATION: 88 & 90 Hornibrook Esplanade, Clontarf

Our clients had acquired four adjoining properties located in the Queensland coastal resort area of Clontarf on the Redcliffe peninsular. Two of the properties front the Hornibrook Esplanade with views over Clontarf Beach and Bramble Bay, while the other two have frontages to Lane Street at the rear. The architectural commission involved amalgamating the four sites and designing a multi residential development consisting of 60 residential apartments, recreation room, gymnasium and pool and on-site parking for 106 vehicles including 2 spaces allocated for disabled parking.

The key to the project design involved creating enough onsite parking to satisfy the requirements of Redcliffe City Council whilst maintaining the existing 3.2m access easement along the full length off the eastern boundary of the site.

Architects Australia designed the building to maximize the views across Bramble Bay for the majority of apartments, whilst providing a development that exhibits luxury, exclusivity and security. A great deal of attention and detail was paid to the design and location of amenities which included; a swimming pool, generous BBQ area, a separate gymnasium and a common roof level recreation space to enhance the resort atmosphere of the project.

As a product of Architects Australia’s extensive knowledge and experience in developments of this nature, the design and approval obtained has significantly increased the value of the site for our clients.
