Brisbane's ARIA Property Group have received sign off from the Brisbane City Council to build their Kangaroo Street apartment development which they now dubbed Riviera.

Aria, led by their founder and managing director Tim Forrester, bought three adjoining sites between 470 and 480 Main Street in late 2018 and submitted plans to build on the amalgamated 2581 sqm in mid-2019.

There will be 124 apartments across the 12 level development, not including the two levels of basement parking.

Entry will be through a lush landscaped garden complete with a reflection pond and butterfly walk. On the ground level will be a residential lobby where there's set to be a cinema and a residents cellar and a terrace with a barbecue.

The rooftop will feature a circular rooftop pool, a green roof covering a wine bar, a number of lawns, a meadow, wellness centre, pool deck and outdoor kitchen.

Architecture firm Bates Smart have designed the building.

They say on their website that their vision was to create a distinctive architecture that captures the uniqueness of the site’s clifftop location while maximising river and city views.

"The form draws inspiration from the dramatic natural land form of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs and its angular faceted forms.

"The design responds to the sub-tropical climate and aims to connect internal spaces to the external environment in line with the Buildings that Breathe strategy adopted by Brisbane City Council.

"Landscaping is a key component of the proposal, forming a key feature of the arrival experience and extending through all levels of the building and culminating in a generous communal rooftop."

The four timber houses that were on the combined site, as well as the two storey office area at the front, are set for demolition.

Condev Construction forecast the works will be complete by August 2022, with the main structure construction beginning in June this year.
