Gurner secures approval for Brisbane hotel

Gurner will move ahead with plans to deliver its landmark FV project to Fortitude Valley in Brisbane, following approval of the proposal by Brisbane City Council.

The $600 million Elenberg Fraser-designed building will include 900 apartments, including a 90 room 4½ star hotel, and a ground floor retail precinct with a combined total of 3188m² of restaurant, retail and office space and a 3000m² residents-only resort-style Private Club. The site is a 5000m² island site bordered by Brunswick Street, Alfred Street and Barry Parade, with uninterrupted views to the city, river, bay and mountains.

FV will become a western gateway to the Fortitude Valley precinct and will play a key role in the rejuvenation of the west end of Brunswick Street, providing a catalyst for the transition of the area into a 24-hour activity hub, offering more diverse activity and retail engagement.

Gurner plans to launch the “Flatiron” building (stage 1) to existing VIP clients shortly and is anticipating registrations of interest to commence around September 2014, with a public launch to follow later in the year.

Gurner founder Tim Gurner said, “With the huge amount of excitement around the project so far and the very large level of enquiry we are experiencing, we expect the sales campaign to be very quick as Brisbane owner occupiers and investors seek a level of design not yet seen in Brisbane.”

Construction is anticipated to commence in early 2015 and take two years to complete.

Mr Gurner said that through the landmark project, which has been compared to New York’s iconic Flatiron building, he is committed to honouring the unique qualities of Fortitude Valley, as well as creating a piece of world-class architecture for the city to be proud of.

The residents-only area, to be known as the FV Private Club will be akin to the best six-star hotels in the world. Designed by world-leading landscape architects 360 degrees – well known for their work at Sydney’s The Ivy – it will feature a large U-shaped infinity pool with in pool bar, private VIP areas, karaoke rooms and barbeque areas, outdoor cinema, sun deck, gym, library and private formal dining rooms that can be booked by residents.
