Bellevue Queensland, the Brisbane-based, family-ran construction and development firm, have lodged plans for their next local project.

Dubbed Sofia, on a rare triple-road fronted amalgamated site at 35 Swann Road and 5 Central Avenue in the leafy TARINGA, will comprise just 20 apartments across the predominantly five-level building. One apartment is considered a sixth storey due to the sloping topography of the land.

The apartments will range from 106 sqm to 123 sqm, each with three-bedrooms and two-bathrooms.

Designed by Hayes Anderson Lynch Architects, residences follow an open plan design in the living, kitchen and dining areas, created with a focus on suiting local downsizes and families.

The building design is heavily modulated through the use and incorporation of large, cantilevered balconies, angled and curved walls, curved vertical aluminium feature screening, chamfered slab projections and full height window and door glazing.

With a light pastel palette, planter boxes on balconies with trailing greenery, stepped facades and a stepped roof form, help soften the built form and connect it to the local landscape.

A generously sized communal rooftop open space has been devised, designed with both passive and active recreational opportunities. Crowning Sofia will be a pool, barbecue facilities, a dining table and a lounge seating area. The area will be landscaped through raised planter beds located along the Swann Rd and Central Ave frontages.

Located within an urban inner-city pocket of Brisbane, the residences sit less than six-kilometres south-west of Brisbane’s CBD. Residents will be well serviced by nearby public transport, namely TARINGA Railway Station and bus stops along both Swann Road and Moggill Road. Sofia also falls within close proximity to a number of major shopping centres, urban services, parks, university and schools.

Bellevue has a number of other projects in the pipeline, with residences, Elba in West End and, Atlas in Lutwyche set to launch soon, as well as Element Residences, an exclusive collection of whole-floor apartments on one of the last remaining spaces along East Brisbane’s riverside promenade.

That will comprise just five four-bedroom apartments and one five-bedroom penthouse.
