Located less than 300 metres from the commercial hub of Chermside Shopping Centre in Brisbane, Quadrant Apartments provides 84 one and two bedroom apartments, 14 of which are provided under the National Rental Affordability Scheme.
Built on a brownfield site which was previously an old car yard featuring almost 100% hardstand cover and no vegetation, Quadrant Apartments has adapted its design to its urban setting. Vine trellises have been used to create green walls on fences, acting as an acoustic boundary, as well as drought tolerant species used within all plantings. BHC has accomplished exceptional outcomes through their holistic approach towards sustainability; from the early planning stages, through to the design outcome.
