This quality apartment complex in Brisbane, Australia is aimed at both investors and end users

Brisbane’s inner north is about to welcome a new $18m architecturally-designed residential development, with construction well underway on Felicity on Felix, a five-storey, 36-apartment building at Lutwyche. 

Designed by award-winning architects The Buchan Group, the complex boasts one, two and three-bedroom apartments, featuring flexible, open-plan living areas and large private balconies to take advantage of natural light and ventilation.

Due for completion before the end of the year, Felicity on Felix will also feature retail space on the building’s ground floor, to enliven the street. 

Buchan Group Director Gerry Holmes said Felicity on Felix’s open-air style design in both the indoor and outdoor living zones made the most of Queensland’s favourable climate.

“Our brief was to produce a quality apartment complex aimed at both investors and end users.  To achieve this, we’ve created a striking north-facing exterior with integrated landscaping that gives the building a contemporary yet welcoming feel, while an open atrium with an overhanging garden creates an ideal communal and social area,” he said.

“One of the most enticing elements of the building is its internal private courtyard designed to encourage interaction among occupants. This courtyard features an extensive outdoor barbeque area with an open-air roof laced with overhanging greenery. 

“Each apartment has been designed to optimise living and outdoor space. Here residents will enjoy premium finishes that highlight naturally lit spaces to deliver a tranquil ambiance and invite the outside in.”

Each apartment features carefully designed kitchens with stone benchtops, double sinks, energy efficient cooktops and European appliances, while each bathroom will boast full-height tiles and frameless mirrors. 

Located at 19 Felix Street, Lutwyche, the complex is situated a mere six km from the Brisbane CBD and is close to Lutwyche public transport, local cafés and Chermside’s shopping hub.
