South Brisbane is set for a new apartment tower.

The plans for the site at 9 Overend Street and 31-33 Wellington Road have been lodged to the Brisbane City Council by company's linked to the local Bitomsky family, headed by family patriarch, the Brisbane lawyer turned developer Greg Bitomsky.

They've had Rothelowman design the 18-level tower, complete with rooftop terrace and set in landscaping by ASPECT Studios.

"The landscape vision of 9 Overend St & 31-33 Wellington Rd aims to create a high quality public realm that reflects its landmark location and responds to Brisbane’s subtropical climate by providing shade and shelter, fine grain active edges and passive surveillance of the street," Rothelowman advised in their architecture plans.

There will be 181 apartments across the building, made up of 60 one-bedroom apartments, 13 of which come with a multi-purpose room, 101 two-bedroom apartments and 20 three-bedroom apartments.

The rooftop will feature an open pergola structure, a swimming pool with deck, a dining space with a barbecue and a lawned area with gardens.

"The landscape design will respond to it’s vertical village of inhabitants and add to the quality of life and well-being of the community," Rothelowman advised.

"Tapping into the existing rich urban grit of Woolloongabba’s local history, industry & local culture craftsmanship, the development will contribute to the next wave of renewal for the precinct."

The Overend project will also revitalize the streetscape. The lower mezzanine will feature work from home space, while there will be a new laneway with a collection of studios, workshops and collaboration zones, set within a landscaped setting.

ASPECT Studios, who are handling the landscaping, called the development a vertical village that responds to it’s inhabitants and the urban scale and takes advantage of the local subtropical climate.

"The palette of raw materials with a reliance on brick, granite, concrete, timber and corten will create a simple and strong ‘materiality’ for Overend & Wellington," Aspect's submission read.

"The public realm will generally focus on utilizing hard wearing materials which provide longevity in robustness and aesthetics.

"The use of brick, granite, timber and corten within the landscape will reflect the historic industrial materiality of the Woolloongabba precinct.

"In addition, the curated use of feature recycled ‘found’ artifacts and salvaged materials will contribute towards cultural ‘grit’ of the space as a place for makers."
