Designed by O’Neill Architecture, the townhouses, consisting of 24 two-storey units, will be situated at 32 Stewart Rd in Albany Creek, right at the intersection of Stewart Road and Earl Street. 

Currently, the site is occupied by a large residential property with a single dwelling house at the centre. However, the plans call for the demolition of the existing structure and all associated buildings to make way for the new development.

The design of the townhouses emphasises a connection with the outdoors by incorporating spacious communal areas and living spaces that open up to private gardens adorned with greenery.

“The design of the development ensures the creation of an open space to the East of the site, with easy access to the Albany Creek. This open space provides every townhouse with the opportunity to share in the suburban lifestyle, with access to extensive private parkland,” O’Neill Architecture noted.

The developer spearheading the project believes that Riverfront Terraces will bring greater diversity to the housing market in the area, which already boasts excellent amenities. 

To optimise functionality and storage space, the design ensures compact living without sacrificing comfort. Each unit is designed to maximise livability, making the most of the available area.

Parking needs have also been taken into account, with two dedicated resident parking spaces allocated to each unit. In addition, two visitor parking spaces will be provided on-site, ensuring convenience for guests and residents alike.
