Brisbane developer Keylin Group has lodged plans for an art deco-style residential and hotel development fronting Brisbane's new Victoria Park Precinct in Spring Hill.

They're seeking to build the 15 level twin towers on the 3,370 sqm site at 447 Gregory Terrace, formerly the HQ of the Queensland Government's electric power distribution company Energex.

The towers, designed by architecture firm DBI design, will home 113 apartments and 120 hotel rooms, as well as residential and resort amenities.

It will be a mix of two, three and four bedroom apartments which will have views to Victoria Park, Mount Coot-tha and the Brisbane skyline.

There will be three penthouses crowning the building, each with their own private rooftop terrace. 

A communal terrace will sit on level 14 of the 15 level tower, which will feature a floating lounge, two fire pits, a kitchen and outdoor dining space.

The design with expansive vertical gardens was considered to be an extension of the 45 hectare Victoria Park, which will soon become Brisbane's largest masterplanned green space.

Keylin Senior Development Manager Ian de Kretser says the design of the twin buildings will take a contemporary approach to the historic, art deco style of Spring Hill.

“The inclusion of climbing greenery across the façades, planter boxes on balconies and a landscaped rooftop terrace will allow the buildings to live and breathe as part of their surrounding environment.

“This amenity-rich locale has provided the perfect canvas for both residential and hotel development, with each building designed to cater to specific markets.”

Mr de Kretser said they are anticipating interest from staff at the nearby Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, or families with children attending the nearby St Joseph’s College, Brisbane Grammar and Brisbane Girls’ Grammar School campuses.

Keylin are currently selling four of their projects off the plan, with the Arnica Townhomes in Brisbane's Carina their only other capital City project. Dawson, at Upper Mount Gravatt, is coming soon.

They have 44 dwellings left to sell in Park Cove at Hope Island and 39 dwellings at Palladium, also at Hope Island.

Some of their more recent developments include the Arnica Townhomes at 188 Meadowlands Road in Carina and the Tempus, project, a selection of townhouses at 28 Bonogin Road in Mudgeeraba.
