Southpoint Apartments is a modern housing developed by Jackson Teece in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It is one of the largest Transit Oriented Developments in Australia and the first of its kind at Brisbane’s South Bank. The apartments were designed on a total 86,000-meter-square site across the nearby three towers.
Aside from the residential apartments developed by Teece, other towers house the most awarded boutique luxury hotel ‘Emporium’ by Anthony John Group taking up the two Northern towers, then there’s the commercial office tower to the south as the home to the new headquarters of Flight Centre.
Due to its architectural character, urban design, and sensitive master planning, the project received many high praises and awards, such as 5 Star GBCA and NABERS ratings.
The master plan integrated the Collins Place, one of the few existing Victorian style houses in South Bank. Previously, the house was neglected for years and lost its historical context over the past 70 years, but this project reused the house and turned it into a focal point of the Southpoint Apartments.
Jackson Teece dealt with the master planning, architecture, urban design, and interior services to Anthony John Group that has controlled the major project for more than a decade. As the key site in South Brisbane, the design evolution required thorough consideration regarding the urban framework of the area.
Collaborated with South Bank Corporation and State Government Agencies, Jackson Teece was able to come with an excellent architectural design that won’t disturb the public spaces in the neighborhood. In fact, through this project, pedestrian-friendly urban parkland was established to offer public spaces and active retail areas.
Southpoint Apartments is a vibrant and activated hub of commercial, residential, and cultural spaces that makes the most of its locality and connection to the surrounding areas alongside the Brisbane River.
