January 01, 2013

We are pleased to announce Linear Apartments was a finalist at the 2012 UDIA (Qld) Boral Awards for Excellence and is now featured in the UDIA QLD Awards 2012 publication:

“The incredible efforts of Ellivo Architects, excellent cooperation of Brisbane city council and outstanding project management by aspect Property Group resulted in a totally new project being approved just three months after the devastating floods changed Brisbane’s landscape forever. The new plans for Linear were for a very different building, with an approach that perfectly suited the risk of future flooding and removed any concerns buyers might have about the location. a five-storey development with 42 units, Linear was designed and approved during a period when building in flooded areas is now firmly under the spotlight. The new design discarded the basement car parks, with all resident parking now above the newly defined flood level. It positioned all electrical transformers, switchboards, lift pits, communications switchboards and associated equipment well above this new level. finally, habitable floor levels were raised to three metres above the newly established flood levels, ensuring future floods would not destroy people’s homes in this building.” Read the full publication here
