Two innovative twin towers to be built in South Brisbane, Australia

Two luxury tower blocks designed by Brisbane-based firm Ellivo Architects are to be constructed in South Brisbane, Australia. The scheme, called Arena, comprises two twin towers with 191 one, two and three bedroom apartments, as well as ‘skyhomes’, and will be developed by Sydney-based Australian and Japanese trust fund Galileo.

Located at 9 Edmonstone Street, South Brisbane, each tower will be 12 storeys high with the apartments going up for sale in March. The towers feature an innovative design of chopstick-like columns with the buildings containing a gym, barbeque pavilions, a swimming pool and retail space on the ground floor.

The semi-public urban courtyard space, created thanks to the tower and podium design, is the ‘heart of the project’ with spaces for both residents and the public .Taking advantage of sweeping views over the South Brisbane area, residents of Arenas apartments will be able to see the Queensland state library and art gallery and the Brisbane Central Business District from the towers.

The Arena project is one of two such Ellivo Architects residential schemes in South Brisbane, with the firm’s other project Edge Apartments, a boutique residential project with urban apartments, currently being developed by Sanchi Development.
