Woolloongabba residents draw your attention to development application A003997103 (details on the councils PD-online page), 174 Logan Road, Woolloongabba. This is a very large scale, seven tower development located in the heart of Woolloongabba and will overshadow everything around it. This master plan sits on only on 18,000 square metres and backs on to a character residential neighbourhood. There has been no regard for setbacks or transitions on the eastern boundary and residents will be heavily affected throughout the Logan Road corridor. We need to get as many people signed up to prevent the Council and the developer moving forward with this development at its current size and scale. The seven towers' heights are from 14 to 21 storeys next to houses with maximum allowable height limits of only nine and a half metres, or a maximum of two storeys.

 

 

We therefore request that Council reject the development application for the proposed units at 174 Logan Road.

Brisbane is going through a boom and we support all affected community groups. We are very close to our local Councillor for The Gabba Ward. This is one of the most significant developments to hit Woolloongabba and will make or break what has up to now been a very quiet and popular place to live close to the city. We don't want the essence of the neighbourhood to be destroyed by overdevelopment. Sensible development needs to be sympathetic to its surrounds and is the key to keeping our suburbs from being overrun by over-scaled developments. Please sign the petition today and join us to protect our neighbourhood.

The Woolloongabba Community Action Group holds regular local meetings to discuss the development's impacts and also update via our Facebook page and email for urgent updates.
