Wynnum Views is a unique townhouse project, redeveloped on a former primary school site located in the established Brisbane bayside suburb of Wynnum. The development involved reclassifying the site for low- medium density residential zoning, protecting and relocating two significant heritage buildings and providing 85 new two and three storey townhouse dwellings within the site. The unique architectural design supports a high quality townhouse product that revitalises existing pool facilities and protects and enhances significant heritage buildings. The two and three storey product maximises density while allowing the maximum retention of mature vegetation within the site boundaries. The significant heritage outcomes attained through this project provide an excellent example of what is achievable on an identified heritage site.
