Multiple Dwelling with Retention of a Pre-1946 House

Lee Morrison - Tuesday, June 18, 2019

Located in the sought after area of Greenslopes, The Planning Place were able to obtain approval at 39 Chatsworth Road, Greenslopes for this four townhouse development with sensitive integration of a retained pre-1946 house into the built form, and successfully achieving a site cover of 52.1% on a 711m2 block with a 15.94m road frontage. The developer sought to gain a marketable residential unit product for the locality with the highest possible yield. The architecturally designed townhouse apartments is a great example of generous sized residences with roof top terraces on the rear building to take advantage of City views and each with double lock-up garages. The design comprised a stepped built form with a semi-basement car park level to take account of a constrained sloping site.
Notably, the client was able to exercise existing land use rights and development opportunity under the site’s current Low-Medium Density Residential Zone before the Council’s anticipated major planning scheme amendment to the City Plan 2014 is brought into place, which seeks to down-zone numerous properties under the Neighbourhood Local Plan to Character Residential Zone. What this means is, that following the zone changes, the subsequent outcome will be reduced development potential due to a reduction in the number of dwellings that could be established on the subject land size.
