Brisbane’s legendary cricket ground, The Gabba, will be the global centrepiece of the 2032 Olympic Games and some homeowners are set to have the best seats in the house.

Silk Lane, the Woolloongabba apartment development to be developed by Southlake Group and Sarazin, is set to be built overlooking the iconic stadium.

The ground-breaking precinct, the second of three exciting stages, will boast the city’s first and only rooftop ‘Skystand’, offering an unobstructed, birds-eye view into The Gabba stadium.

The 306 one, two and three-bedroom apartments have been designed by Nettletontribe Architects and start from just $449,000.

The development will feature a rooftop infinity pool with views across Brisbane, and ground-level commercial spaces.

Located at 8-12 Trafalgar Street, Silk will be positioned just 350 metres from the future Cross River Rail station, just one stop to Albert Street.

Over the next decade, a rush of global infrastructure investment is set to transform Brisbane into a new world city.

The Gabba is the jewel in the city’s Olympic crown, with the stadium undergoing a $1 billion rebuild increasing capacity to 50,000 spectators.

It will host the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as the track and field events.

The 2032 Brisbane Olympics will not only deliver an economic boost to trade and tourism but is set to have a big impact on the local property market, according to PRD Research chief economist, Dr Diaswati Mardiasmo.

Mardiasmo predicted this month that Brisbane’s median house price could increase to $1.7 million by 2023, 2.5 times its current median of $674,738.

With major projects including Woolloongabba’s new Cross River Rail station, Brisbane Metro and Queen’s Wharf completed by 2032, it is no doubt that Silk Lane residents will reap the benefits.

Around The Gabba, a new pedestrian plaza will link the stadium to the new transport stations.

“For local sports, the promise of new and revitalised Olympic venues is a game-changer, encouraging families and junior athletes into sporting endeavours and creating potential future champions competing at a home Olympics”, the project marketing reads.

This landmark sporting and cultural hub will write a new chapter in Woolloongabba’s rich story.

Residents can surround themselves with grand panoramas of the Brisbane city skyline on your private residents' rooftop with views across the river and a front-row seat to every game at the Gabba.

The building’s architectural façade draws inspiration from the angular shapes of metal structure incorporated in the neighbouring stadium.

Silk Lane is expected to reach completion in mid-2024.
