New 5-Stage Development Planned for Lamington Ave in Ascot

Lamington Avenue may soon have rows of low- to medium-density townhouses in neatly arranged and organised clusters, to be delivered in five project stages based on an updated development proposal.

Promoted as the “postcode-perfect address” within the blue-chip suburb, Ascot Aurora‘s 219 standard lots will be developed in five stages, to streamline both construction and occupation of the dwellings, with specific approval conditions for each stage. 

The first stage of the development, which is already underway, will include the delivery of 47 townhouses, as well as the residents’ social and recreational facilities, the public park, and car parking spaces.

More housing, both attached and detached, as well as parking spaces for cars and bikes will continue for Stages 2 to 5, with the final stage allowing for the construction of a four-storey apartment building.

“The proposed staging includes the apartment complex and 219 standard lots ranging from 76m2 –248m2 as well as the required common property being the road infrastructure, pocket parks, visitor car parks, residential facility, a community garden that form part of the approval,” the developer stated via DA A005844654

The location offers residents fluid indoor/outdoor spaces that take advantage of natural light, comforting breezes, and stunning views. Here, residents could enjoy building their connections with their neighbours. 

“Homeowners will relish the convenience and conviviality of this popular precinct, quickly realising that every whim, appetite and coffee craving can be satiated with a stroll along Racecourse Road. Hamilton Harbour and Portside Wharf precincts are also within walking distance, providing close, connected hubs to stock up on groceries and catch up with friends.”

Plans For 234 Homes In Ascot Gets Council Approval

Property development company Poly Australia has received development approval from Brisbane City Council for its major residential project, ‘Ascot Aurora.’ 

Council has given the green light for the 234-dwelling in December 2019, less than six months since the application was lodged. Poly Australia noted that they engaged the community throughout the process to ensure the application positively reflected the needs of the community.

Around 209 of these units will be two, three and four-bedroom townhouses, 10 will be freestanding, four-bedroom townhomes, and 15 are one, two and three-bedroom apartments. Vehicular access will be via Lamington Avenue whilst pedestrian access will be at Lamington Avenue and Mordant Street.

The subject site is at 104 Lamington Avenue, Eagle Farm, a 62,090-sqm vacant lot located 7 km away from Brisbane CBD and 500m from Doomben Train Station. In addition to new housing, Poly Australia will deliver a new public park and significant landscaping throughout the site.

“The development proposal for this site harnesses an opportunity to transition this site, the last remaining vacant/disused site north of the rail line on Lamington Avenue, to provide additional residential development, community assets and infrastructure in this central part of Brisbane,” Urbis said in a report on behalf of Poly Australia.

Designed by Arkhefield, the application noted that the “proposal presents a high-quality contemporary design that will contribute significantly to the desired subtropical character of this vacant brownfield site in Eagle Farm.”

The reconfiguration of the lot will be undertaken in three stages. The staging will involve the following:

  • Stage 1A – The future public park;
  • Stage 1B – the detached dwellings and multiple dwellings on the western side of the site;
  • Stage 2 – the apartment building and multiple dwellings in the northern part of the site; and
  • Stage 3 – the multiple dwellings in the south of the site

Construction of Ascot Aurora is expected to commence in mid-2020. Depending on weather and site conditions, it should be complete by mid-2022.
