New Plans for Brisbane Commercial Office Block in Mt Gravatt
Plans have just been lodged with the Brisbane City Council for a 10-storey commercial development at Upper Mount Gravatt in Brisbane.
The office tower, designed by Brisbane-firm Ellivo Architects, comprises 5,839sq m office space, childcare centre, 216sq m indoor basketball court and ground floor retail.
The 1,396sq m development site is located on the prominent corner of Sanders Street and Capalaba Road.
Owners of the property, CEL Group, submitted the application for the building, to be known as 34 Mt Gravatt.
The accounting and consultancy firm presently operate out of an existing single-storey building on the property.
The new proposal is in tune with with the company’s expanding requirements, growing out of their existing space and plans to invest in the proposed land holding.
Mount Gravatt has recently grown with a number of approved or recently constructed developments helping the employment and economic growth in Brisbane’s south-east.
CEL Group has also obtained initial lease commitments for the balance of the office lease areas, reinforcing the growing commercial lease demand in the area.
Commercial office space will be provided between levels two to 10, although level 10 will be dedicated for indoor and outdoor recreational space in addition to the offices.
The development provides a total of 117 car parking spaces across the ground floor level and four basement levels.
300sq m will be provided for high-quality end-of-trip facilities.
Matt Martoo, the architect, said that the design vision for 34 Mt Gravatt was for a striking, clean glass tower grounded by a finely-detailed, sculptural podium base.
“Along each street interface the podium is articulated by custom scalloped panels which open to reveal planters, terraces and active retail spaces,” He said.
“The fine-grain articulation and ground floor tenancies will help to develop Sanders Street as a new destination within Upper Mount Gravatt.”
Ellivo recently partnered with the Dennis Family Corporation to form a masterplan for 32 triple-storey townhouses at Nundah in Brisbane’s north-east.
In April, the architecture firm also submitted plans with Melbourne-based developer Deague Group for a 15-storey student accommodation building in inner-city Brisbane.
