Pikos Group, a Brisbane-based residential and commercial developer, has received development approval from the Brisbane City Council to build a $200 million luxury apartment project at Kangaroo Point.
The Skye Apartments will feature 68 luxury apartments over three towers with a floating 1,000 sqm Sky Deck and an pool deck exclusive to residents. Six of these apartments will feature their own private rooftop terraces.
The building will only feature two apartments per floor catering for generous sized balconies along River Terrace. This will give residents views of local attractions such as the Botanic Gardens and the Brisbane River.
The 2330sqm site was acquired by Pikos from Singapore-based hotels group Banyan Tree who had intended to build a single-tower on the site that had originally been purchased for $16.8 million back in 2014.
Arkhefield, a Brisbane architectural firm, will be designing the project drawing inspiration from Singapore’s world-renowned Marina Bay Sands development.
The project is aimed at the booming owner-occupied market seeking an inner-city lifestyle, says Pikos.
“This is a landmark site in Brisbane, so we took a purposeful approach to create an iconic development,” says Pikos managing director Pedro Pikos.
“The Sky Lounge is the jewel in the crown of this design that will set this development apart for residents and as a Brisbane destination in its own right. We have delivered refinements that we believe creates a unique residential offering for the city by combining boutique premium apartment lifestyle with world-class amenities that you’d expect in a five-star resort,”
“Not only will each apartment provide residents superb views of the city, the design is crafted to suit today’s modern lifestyle,”
“Everything is at your fingertips if you choose, or you can remain at home to enjoy the benefits of supreme privacy, a beautiful outlook and unparalleled amenities.”
Construction is set to begin this year once further approvals are granted.
