Manning Street Development by Kozmic

Brisbane City Council has approved two major new inner-west developments, including a 20-storey tower at Milton with an environmentally friendly "green roof".

The apartment building on Manning Street, about 200 metres from Milton station, will comprise 126 units, ranging from one to three bedrooms. The plan includes 151 car parks and 158 spaces for bicycles and may become one of the first buildings in Brisbane to house a living rooftop garden.

There were five objections lodged against the proposal, with issues including traffic, lack of contribution to local infrastructure and concerns a 20-storey tower was too big for the local area. However, developers will be asked to contribute $3.1 million in infrastructure charges, some of which will go towards a new CityCat ferry stop in the area.
