The latest stage of developer Sekisui House's sprawling West Village apartment precinct in inner Brisbane has entered planning.

Earlier this week, plans for dual Plus Architecture-designed apartment towers were lodged. They are the latest proposed additions to the staged development which is permitted to add in excess of 1,200 apartments to the mixed-use precinct, located a mere 1.5 kilometres from Brisbane's CBD.

Covering 111 Boundary Street, the latest application forms Stage 2A of West Village. Expected are 163 apartments across both 15 level towers.

Apartments aside, the renewal project will ultimately also include 18,500 square metres of commercial space, retail arcades and extensive community and public realm uses.

Sekisui House and Plus Architecture have elected to discern both towers heavily by way of the apartment mix.

53 apartments are within the North Tower and 110 dwellings within the South Tower. The discrepancy in numbers can be attributed to the North Tower being positioned at the premium apartment offering; it is slated to include 14 triple and 16 quadruple bedroom apartments.

Conversely the South Tower will be skewed to smaller living spaces, including 18 single and 84 double bedroom apartments. Amenities across both towers include a cinema, dining room, pool and wine cellar.

Four sub-ground levels accommodating 221 car parking spaces will support the towers.

The conversion of the former Peters Ice Cream complex is well under way with Hutchinson Builders approaching completion of the first of West Village's stages. 

In addition to 322 apartments, a varied ground plane programme is being created. Hayball, ACME & Co and Netteltontribe banded together to create various aspects of the initial phase, which includes laneway-inspired retail tenancies and community spaces.

Earlier this year it was reported that green space within the planned precinct had expanded considerably; the green spaces will be in addition to seven residential buildings of between 8 and 22 levels and a capped apartment number of 1250.

The 2.6-hectare site first reached Brisbane City Council's planning channels during April 2015.
