A mixed-use development made up of a 30- and 35-storey building has been approved for Brisbane City’s Quay Street precinct.
Located at 57 Coronation Drive, Maple Development Group’s project will see 255 premium residential apartments, a five-star serviced apartment building, premium commercial offices and podium level shopping and dining constructed on a 3114 square metre site.
Maple Development Group Development Manager Gilbert Zhu welcomed the approval and said the project would honour Brisbane’s unique riverside lifestyle and extend this new vibrancy into the Quay Street precinct, creating a new destination for future residents, visitors and locals alike.
“Brisbane has in recent years experienced a period of evolution and significant growth, primarily focused on quality riverfront amenity and experiences, which make the most of the city’s climate and riverine landscape,” Zhu said.
“The project team led by Urbis, engaged extensively with Brisbane City Council through its DesignSMART collaborative design process to ensure the project is a positive addition to the local economy, property market, city skyline and most importantly would fit the vision for Brisbane’s future.

“As developers we are grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with Council in this way.”
One of the city’s oldest heritage buildings, Davidson’s Residence, built in 1868, is located at the rear of the site’s existing commercial building.
It will be carefully refurbished and given new function as the reception for the serviced apartments.
Rothelowman Principal Jeff Brown led the project design and said the Queensland-inspired subtropical design closely followed Brisbane City Council’s New World City Design Guide of buildings that breathe.
“The project’s residential apartments will introduce a new level of luxury living to the area, with premium facilities and green spaces which make the most of river and city views, including swimming pool, gymnasium, multiple private and communal sky gardens and rooftop recreational spaces,” Brown said.
“Brisbane City Council’s Buildings that Breathe guidelines were a fundamental driver for the design. The inclusion of multiple initiatives that embrace Brisbane’s climate through extensive vertical greening, sky gardens, passive ventilation, building shading and robust materiality ensure the project will be a strong contributor to the future of our City.
“This project represents the future of the Quay Street precinct and we hope to set a design precedent for future development in the area.”
