New Gabba apartments a further sign of change

Townplanners, councillors and others involved in the design of our suburbs can draw, design and contemplate as much as they like, but it takes property developers to actually make things happen. Here’s a pic today of the new Mondrian Apartments in Jurgens Street, 22 of them about to be finished and demonstrating how the neighbourhood will change over years to come.

Light industry and businesses are going to make way for more residential apartments and this is one of Woolloongabba’s first. It’s a central spot so close to the city, so we’d say it makes sense to see residents here instead of businesses. This developer’s been smart enough to get the design right with some ‘urban’ flavour to the place. The architecture is right for a location like this.
