ARIA lodge plans for South Brisbane apartment tower

ARIA, led by Tim Forrester, has had Bates Smart team up with Richards & Spence in what is expected to be the first of three towers across the amalgamated site.

The sustainably conscious apartment developer, Aria Property Group, is set for further development in the exclusive South Brisbane pocket they’ve been developing in over recent years.

They’ve lodged plans on a triple block at 33 Manning Street, on the corner of Manning and Melbourne Street. The Melbourne Street sites are currently home to the former Malouf’s Fruit Shop and the former Bond’s Sweet Factory.

ARIA, led by Tim Forrester, has had Bates Smart team up with Richards & Spence in what is expected to be the first of three towers across the amalgamated site.

The first tower will have 84 apartments across 14 levels, and extensive rooftop amenity, which, alongside their sustainability efforts, is fast becoming ARIA’s signature.


“33 Manning Street offers a variety of spacious dwellings in the central urban location of South Brisbane providing opportunity for a diverse population including families and students,” the design statement submitted to the Brisbane City Council noted.

“33 Manning Street is a simple and elegant tower which takes best advantage of the opportunities afforded by its location, climate and scale to provide a distinctive lifestyle opportunity for Brisbane.”

“Each apartment has been designed to maximise natural light and cross ventilation, taking advantage of the local climate,” the design statement noted.

“All practical considerations of living are considered including private bedrooms, generous kitchens and flexible living spaces.”

The design statement also suggested that residential wellness is a key design consideration.

There will be a commercial gym tenancy located on the first level. At the heart of the rooftop amenity is the 20 metre pool. On the north-east edge of the roof is a plunge pool, positioned to take in the city views.

There’s an amphitheater which offers seating and lounging for an evening cinema, as well as a residents dining room.

The new tower, next to South Brisbane’s famous Skyneedle, is around the corner from Trellis, one of ARIA’s most sustainable projects to date. Some 60 per cent of the tower is covered in greenery. There’s Tesla charging, solar technology, and extensive rainwater tanks.

It’s also up the road from The Standard, ARIA’s flagship development in the heart of the popular Fish Lane precinct.
