The Newstead Federal Boot Factory, bought by Brisbane billionaire John Van Lieshout last year, is set to go ahead with its apartment redevelopment.

Van Lieshout, the founder and former owner of the Super A-Mart furniture store chain, has however tweaked with the plans that he inherited when the 1821 sqm site at 14 Maud Street was bought.

They were designed by Joe Adsett Architects, and had planned for 52 apartments across nine levels.

New plans submitted to the Brisbane City Council see the Brisbane-based Ellivo Architects design a slightly more boutique project, with just the 41 apartments.

The plans are for a mix of two, three and four bedroom apartments, still across nine levels, with the rooftop being the focal point of the resident amenity.

Half of the roof is the huge 190 sqm penthouse with four bedrooms, a home office, and a 112 sqm wrap around balcony, while the other half has a communal outdoor dining room and kitchen and a swimming pool with day beds.

The project will be integrated with the old Federal Boot Factory on its heritage 1012 sqm lot, with the retention and adaptive reuse of the Goldsworthy and Perkins Boot Factory heritage building into ground floor retail.
