Overend Street, Norman Park

Project
Overend Street contains a period commercial character building in the heart of this part of Norman Park. The food and drink outlet development approval at Overend Street was achieved in a challenging approval context given the proximity of local residents and limited off street parking. The development approval success for the food and drink outlet now provides a local meeting place for residents.

Development approval was also obtained for a new dwelling house on the balance of the site.  Designed by Smith Architecture, 85 Overend Street required approval for a dwelling house on a small lot requiring careful attention to design, planning requirements and presentation to the street, as well as managing normal approval challenges associated with car parking and open space provision.

Montpelier Road, Newstead

Project
The development approval achieved a five storey commercial office and retail premises on Montpelier Road, Newstead in the heart of the Newstead/ Bowen Hills urban renewal area. The development approval for the office and retail development created a major ‘value add’ for the client’s development site. The proposal had unique site challenges including creating a building envelope to retain views for adjoining neighbours as well as site access challenges.

Brookes Street, Fortitude Valley

Project
JGPC assisted the client in acquiring development approval for the office of Bickerton Masters Architecture.  The former school building is identified as a State Heritage Place.  Development of the building required special consideration of its adaptive reuse considering the heritage value of the premises. The office approval showcases heritage architecture and an approval for offices which required additional office space, car parking and informal spaces.
