Woolloongabba will soon have a new addition, with Silk One the latest project to announce itself in the surging inner Brisbane suburb.

The new tower will also feature a design first for Brisbane, boasting the city’s only rooftop Skystand which will include tiered seating and unobstructed views over The Gabba’s stadium. The project has been designed by Nettletontribe Architects, with Sarazin and Southlake Group also backing the project.

Silk One's intended unit mix would add a further 178 apartments to Woolloongabba. These dwellings are expected to be split between 59 one bedroom, 32 two bedroom/one bathroom, 85 two bedroom/two bathroom and 2 three bedroom/two bathroom options.

Silk One forms part of a larger intended development that initially went to planning during 2016. Three separate applications cover an extended land plot encapsulating 825-847 Stanley Street and 6-24 Trafalgar Street in Woolloongabba.

Originally envisaged as a phased delivery project, the development has three towers capable of delivering approximately 520 apartments, commercial office space, a string of retail tenancies and a public thoroughfare bisecting the site. 600 plus vehicle parking spaces and 600 plus bicycle bays are included across the entire development.

The overall Silk development replaces a previous mixed-use scheme over the site which included dedicated commercial, hotel and apartment uses.

Currently, primary applicant 825 Stanley Pty Ltd has taken the Silk One tower back to planning, looking to include design enhancements across the initial tower.

Developments looking to call Woolloongabba home

With the project's website taking registrations of interest, Silk One is also the latest Woolloongabba project to enter the urban project Database, with the vast majority of these located directly south of The Gabba.

43 Regent Street and 65-67 Regent Street both relatively recent applications and are symptomatic of the scale of apartment development seeking to call Woolloongabba home. Both applications are the work of architecture firm Cottee Parker.

Woolloongabba's tallest intended tower is dubbed Broadway Apartments and is sited across 85-93 Logan Road. At 27 levels the project backed by Majella Property would see 262 apartments and just shy of 5,000 square metres of leasable commercial area included within the HAL Architects-designed tower.
