The eight-storey tower is crowned by an activated rooftop level, that allows residents to enjoy Brisbane’s subtropical climate and benefit from amenities including a sundeck/lounge, daybed area, and a pool.

“The proposed design has taken a sensitive approach in respecting the industrial heritage significance of the existing site.
