Pellicano set for Story House, Kangaroo Point apartment development

Story House was described as “mid-century modern meets sophistication in the heart of Woolloongabba and wider area of Kangaroo Point.”

The national property developer, Pellicano, are set to bring something different to the affluent Brisbane riverside suburb, Kangaroo Point.

They’re seeking to create Story House, a development of 86 apartments, on the more affordable end of the scale than what Kangaroo Point is generally used to.

There will be a mix of studio, one, and two-bedroom apartments across the nine-level building designed by DBI Architecture, which will be crowned with an extensive rooftop amenity level.

That will home a lap pool with a pool deck and spa, a yoga lawn, a dining and barbecue area, and an outdoor gym. 85 per cent of the building’s roof top is disposed as recreation areas and gardens, landscape architect RPG Group advise on the development submission.

They described Story House as “mid-century modern meets sophistication in the heart of WOOLLOONGABBA and wider area of Kangaroo Point.”

The Pellicano team identified the area as having considerable growth potential well before the Olympics was announced for Brisbane in 2032. They bought two adjoining 708 sqm Duke Street sites for a combined 1,418 sqm block in 2019 for around $2,875,000 combined.

The site is currently vacant, with the existing character house at 21 Duke Street having been relocated, and the house at 65 Linton Street demolished.

A stone’s throw from The Gabba but in the Kangaroo Point postcode, Story House was designed by DBI who said the building and internal use is broken down to create a base form that scales to the street; a three-story expression that is typical in scale to the historical locality.

“The building offers balconies expressed to offer an overt sub- tropical, outdoor living experience,” DBI advised.

“The balconies become a vibrant & playful series of sculptural forms that humanize the suburban building to the street.

“The articulated facade allows for desired breeze flow through all habitable spaces.”
