West End Community Association is considering an offer by Aria Property International to resolve its Planning and Environment Court appeal against its 16 storey development at South Brisbane. Broadly speaking, I believe new development in the evolving South Brisbane precinct is a good thing – but I’m not convinced we need more studio apartments as promised by the Aria proposal. They’ve proven a hard product to move in the past, despite offering relatively good rental returns. What’s needed is a building mix of 1 and 2 bedrooms (both with carparks please!) and plenty of visitor parking. What do you think?!
