Brisbane's Broadway Hotel in Woolloongabba will be the centrepiece of the $260 million neighbourhood mixed use redevelopment following a DA lodged with Brisbane City Council.

Majella Property Developments are set to redevelop  the 3420 sqm site, spanning 44 Balaclava Street and 85 & 93 Logan Road, Woolloongabba.

The DA proposes a multi-level apartment tower with a 262 one, two, three and four bedroom apartments as well as a three-level commercial and retail podium and 40 commercial sites.

The hotel, built in in 1890 and designed by John Hall & Son was damaged by fire in 2010.

Frank Monsour, Majella Group founder said some of the development profits from the apartment tower to restore the hotel which otherwise has been deemed to be economically unviable as a restoration project on its own due to the extensive damage suffered.

“Broadway will redefine this important precinct in Woolloongabba with heritage values central to the design," he said.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring the Broadway Hotel back to life and develop a vibrant commercial precinct with food and dining central to the experience.

"We’re pleased to be bringing innovations to the Broadway development including centralised recycling, cutting edge Bloomframe windows and the largest automated car parking system in Australia.”

The residential development will feature rooftop facilities for entertaining and meetings, pools and a spa. It is designed by Elizabeth Anderson of Hayes Anderson Lynch Architects.

Construction is expected to start late 2017 and be completed in 2019.
