Grace on Coronation

Brisbane, Australia
1 of 3

Grace on Coronation is a proposed series of high-rise apartments at a riverfront location in Brisbane, Australia designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. The design comprises three towers, two of which are 24 storeys and one at 27 storeys - making up 555 apartments in total. The 1.5 hectare development is located 4km from Brisbane's CBD in the area of Toowong. Currently the local Brisbane City Council has approved the planning application with development set to commence by the end of 2015.

Architect's Statement

"The design tapers each structure to minimise their footprint and open the riverfront to the public; creating a vibrant civic space for Toowong within a new riverside park,"

Local Protest

Local community groups protested against the development citing the mass loss of parklands in the area since the 1960s as a cause for concern - they put forward alternative proposals by a local landscape architect to restore the riverfront as a park.
