Architecture and Renovation, Brisbane's rental market, West End

Light and Co – Rejuvenating historic gas works site!

Pradella’s latest development in West End, Light & Co is due to complete Stage 1 in the coming months with the facade now almost finished. The four stage development will offer over 460 residential units over the four buildings as well as retail stores, restaurants and an extensive landscaped area designed by local landscape architects Lat27.

Located on Montague Road the site was once used by the South Brisbane Gas & Light Company which supplied much of Brisbane’s gas for the gas street lamps. This was one of the first industrial properties to the area and paved the way for West End’s factories to be erected. All that remains of the site today is a gas stripping tower that was moved from its original position on Montague Road in 1979 and placed in Davies Park for historic purposes.
