Hope Island, Queensland
Sited on the northern edge of the Hope Island Canal, this mixed use project contains a wide range of apartment types, home offices and a small amount of convenience retail. An existing significant street axis is reinforced in the design and terminated in the most prominent building which also acts as an entry beacon for boats approaching from the east. Seven buildings are configured to reinforce the street network and form a central public space which contributes to a larger open space system that offers cross site connectivity to the waterfront, the boardwalk and an adjoining public park to the east. 172 Apartments are provided in buildings which range in height from 3 – 9 storeys. Occupation densities and building heights are graded down from the waters edge towards the street front to minimise the impact of built form on the neighbourhood streets and achieve higher density in areas of greatest amenity.
