Cornwall Street project breaks ground

The Cornwall Street project in Woolloongabba broke ground this week. Designed for BHC and built by Stokes Wheeler, the new affordable rental housing will provide 32 apartments for youth and key workers. This development is the first to be constructed under the Queensland Government’s Partnering for Growth initiative.

Located on a small yet prominent site, the 9 storey apartment building will include a mix of studio and one bedroom apartments, designed to respond to the Brisbane City Council’s ‘Building’s that Breathe’ design guidelines.

BHC’s Rebecca Oelkers and Eloise Atkinson, were joined by the Hon. Jackie Trad MP, Deputy Premier and Treasurer, the Hon. Mick de Brenni, Minister for Housing and Public Works and Annemaree Callander from Brisbane Youth Service for the sod turning.
