The prominent Queensland developer, Seymour Group, has filed plans for its Newstead Green masterplan.

There will be two stages of the development at 99 Breakfast Creek Road, each with four residential towers ranging in height from 11 levels to 16 levels. The four towers in each stage will share a level four podium.

One of the planning driver for architecture firm bureau^proberts was to create a gateway precinct that connects the airport arrivals to the CBD - an important arrival experience for future visitors for the 2032 Olympics.

Bureau^proberts said in their statement to the Brisbane City Council that the departure of the current occupier, which is AP Eagers, offers a unique opportunity to transform an important and strategic land parcel on one of Brisbane’s key gateway’s.

"Newstead North has deep history of change, from a mix of residential housing and industry on the river in the 1930’s, to a growing industrial hub in the 1970’s & 80’s," the statement read.

"As the city grows and its needs shift, the site has found itself soon to be vacant. Its current occupier, one of the last of Newstead North’s industry users, is leaving due to the site not able to meet the needs of these historic users.

"Newstead Green intends to build on the history of urban regeneration to offer a vibrant place for people to live and work close to the city, but with a focus on integrating landscaped green spaces with the fine grain urban lifestyle.

Bureau^proberts says the project aims to build on the idea of green spines connecting the Brisbane River to the character of Bowen Hill.

"This ‘River to Ridge’ approach will afford the opportunity to incorporate BCC’s Building that Breathe design strategies to provide a sustainable, approachable and vibrant place to live, work and visit.

"By creating public open spaces that open up with cross block links, the site will be a permeable and accessible precinct that will create dynamic living opportunities for a wide variety of demographics.

The location of Newstead Green at 99 Breakfast Creek Road will see it built next door to JGL Properties' Newstead Series, four completed apartment towers with 200 apartments.

There will be a carnival type atmosphere at the Evelyn Street Plaza, with an archway of greenery at Byres Lane making the entry to Newstead Green laneway, lined with shops.
