The site of a former glass and aluminum fabrication factory in Brisbane’s West End is to become a five-storey apartment development known as The Glass Factory.

Located on Vulture Street, The Glass Factory is designed by Rothelowman White architects and draws on inspiration from West End’s traditional building styles.

Developed by Turrisi Properties, the design will feature profiled metal, cladding and perforated aluminum sliding screens.

“The glass factory captures the essence of West End,” says Turrisi Properties development manager Ben Jobber.

“Guided by the area's diverse past, located near the popular boundary street strip, the glass factory will create residences that feel right in the environment, both inside and out,” says Jobber.

The development will include 47 apartments ranging from one-, two- and three-bedroom.

One-bedroom apartments start from $370,000 and two bedrooms start from $550,000.

Two three-bedroom apartments are priced from $815,000.

Construction is due to commence in early 2014 and has an expected completion date of early 2015.

The official marketing campaign kicks off on September 7.

The median apartment price in West End is $505,000, a 78.4% change in the past five years, according to RP Data.
