Plans for a Twin-Tower Residential Development in Albion Lodged

A twin-tower residential development in Albion rising up to 11 storey high has been proposed. 



The subject site at 31 Dover Street in Albion which was acquired by Opencorp for $11 million in 2016 spans 5,600 sqm and is now planned for residential development.


 
 


Designed by Hayes Anderson Lynch, the proposal will contain 218 with a mix of one, two, and three-bedroom apartments across two towers. It will be set adobe a common basement car parking and will offer extensive communal spaces on the ground level/basement and rooftop of both buildings.

If approved, the twin-tower development will be delivered in two stages with the southern apartment tower containing 110 units and the northern tower comprising 108 units.

“The built form comprises two towers that are designed to recede from the site frontage and from each of the side and rear boundaries, incorporating substantial articulation, high architectural design merit, and preserving 10% deep planting to ensure apparent building mass is well managed and an attractive streetscape and interface with development to the east is ensured,” the RPS assessment report states.

“The ‘V’ shaped floor plate design ensures that no apartments look directly into one another, and provides for substantial communal open space within the site. Accordingly, apartments in each tower are oriented at 90 degrees to each other, and the apartments look 

out over and into the communal open space.A total of 371 car parking spaces for residents, 55 for visitors, and resident bicycle storage will be provided under the proposal.”

Meanwhile, the proposed open spaces will be provided in the form of private balconies available for each unit whilst extensive communal spaces occupying 25 per cent of the site will be situated at the ground level and on each rooftop of the twin towers.
