More Affordable and Smaller Apartments

The Courier Mails reports that developers are building apartment buildings with smaller apartments, because that is what is selling today.  Does this mean that there will be a shortage of larger, family sized apartments in Brisbane in the future?

From the Courier Mail:

"Developer FKP recently withdrew a development application from Brisbane City Council for a future tower at its Gasworks development at Newstead.  It was lodged in 2009 and executive director Mark Jewell said it needed to be revised in line with the present market. The tower, known as Parkside Boulevard, will be released in the next three to five years.  Two weeks ago, the same developer released its reworked masterplan for The Mill development at Albion.  A change in market conditions early in 2010 saw it refund deposits for units already sold off the plan and designs changed. It has now launched the first tower and is waiting for sufficient pre-sales before it starts construction.

In Brisbane's CBD, Melbourne-based developer Billbergia unveiled plans to develop the failed Vision site into a 90-storey residential tower with about 800 apartments, a hotel and a 34-storey commercial tower.

Bellise at Fortitude Valley had initially been planned as a 199-unit development, but had received a new approval to reconfigure it to a 228-unit development of smaller product.

Citimark's Angus Johnson said the launch of its 200-unit Rivana development at Hamilton would wait until the market was right.

While Stockwell plans to proceed with the 150-unit stage two and 50-unit stage three of its Riverpoint development at West End, it has not yet advised a time frame.

Sunland has preliminary approval for the 47-storey Carrington in Alice St in the City. Managing director Sahba Abedian said there were conditions attached, which they were working through."
