Landmark South Brisbane 180-apartment tower set to commence after two week sell-out

Botanica Residences, in South Brisbane, is set to be developed early this year after a sell out within two weeks of its official launch.

The development, designed by ROTHELOWMAN WHITE, developed by ARIA, is certified as a six-leaf rating by the UDIA, and is the largest of its kind to achieve this sustainability rating cementing it as a landmark for South Brisbane.

Including features in six sustainability categories, with vertical gardens facing Edmondstone Street, solar panels and a Smart Monitoring System to allow residents to track their water and energy use, it looks to help reduce bills and the environmental impact.

It is located on the corner of Edmonstone Street and Boundary Street and is in a former commercial area two kilometres from the CBD. It includes integrated security, intercom access, wi-fi and a ground level café and retail options.

Simon White from ROTHELOWMAN said that the sustainable attributes have been a key part in the demand for the residences.

Botanica and its green wall will be an authentic residential landmark for the South Brisbane,” said White.

Timber and glass are the main themes, with a recreation terrace on the building with 360 degree views. Landscaping and recreation options will also be included. A barbecue area is provided on the rooftop.

The interiors have 2.7 metre high plasterboard ceilings, with natural light being a focus, said Michael Hurley from ARIA’s residential division.

“When we found out about the UDIA’s Enviro Certification Program, we jumped at the chance to make Botanica more environmentally friendly. It was apparent that with some hard work and smart design changes, we could achieve all 6 levels of certification. We are continually working to further separate our developments from the market, and achieving the UDIA Six Leaf Enviro Certification was a very easy decision for us to make,” said Hurley.
