On Site // Arena Apartments, South Brisbane

August 14, 2014

Hutchinson Builders are doing a great job at Arena Apartments with construction currently 8 weeks ahead of contract schedule – expected to be completed only a few months away at the end of October.

All structure for both Building 1 and Building 2 are now completed and scaffolding is steadily peeling away.

The distinct personality of Arena is unveiling with olive-green crisp slab edges, contrasting with raw brick balustrades, gleaming black tile walls and wrapping façade detail.

Ideally located between the vibrant heart of West End and the South Brisbane Cultural Precinct, the newly released residential development Arena offers an exciting addition to Brisbane’s development ‘sweet spot’.

The Arena residential development has been generated as a response to the context of the site, views, orientation and ground level activation. The generous north eastern facing site has allowed the possibility of two tower and podium forms that create and define a semi-public urban courtyard. The courtyard space is the heart of the project, incorporating private residence areas, and more active public spaces to Edmondstone Street.
