A three-tower residential complex, of up to 28 storeys, is planned for a block of land on Breakfast Creek Rd, opposite Newstead Park.

Breakfast Creek Quarter will house 752 residential units, as well as office and retail space.

The residential units will be made up of 122 studio units, 233 one-bedroom and 342 two-bedroom units.

In addition to 62 three-bedroom units, there will two three-bedroom sub-penthouses and one four-bedroom penthouse.

The units will be spread across the three towers of 28, 26 and 23 storeys, respectively, which also feature 14 retail and commercial tenancies on the ground floor.

The site, which has frontages to Breakfast Creek Rd, Durong St and Ross St, is currently a commercial office building.

The new complex will have five levels of parking to accommodate 583 cars, with access from Ross St.

It will feature more than 5200 sqm of communal open space and landscaped rooftop terraces.

The development application before Brisbane City Council states the development emphasises residential amenity, providing expansive communal areas designed to maximise access to attractive views, sunlight, and ventilation through large windows and balconies.

“The towers feature extensive landscaping and screening elements that provide visual relief and create a residential atmosphere,” the application states.

“The ground level includes deep planting areas, connecting the site to the surrounding environment, particularly Newstead Park. The development is designed to activate the inner-city site, providing amenities and services that cater to both residents and the surrounding community, promoting a lively and sustainable mixed-use environment.”
