Wallace Bishop with the help of developers has submitted a development application to Brisbane City Council to redevelop and revitalise their Teneriffe Headquarters.
Designed by Cottee Parker Architects, the development application comprises new retail and café/restaurant (food and drink) tenancies fronting Commercial Road, which effectively ‘sleeve’ the existing Wallace Bishop building at the rear.
Specifically, Wallace Bishop’s ‘Material Change of Use for Centre Activities’ permit application includes two retail tenancies and three food tenancies for the Teneriffe site, all of which have direct frontage to Commercial Road.
“Each food tenancy has been designed to accommodate outdoor dining, both on-site, and on the Commercial Road footpath (subject to the necessary licences), which will further assist in the activation of Commercial Road in this locality,” the proposal said.
The proposal also incorporates an architectural metal feature screen to be located on the Commercial Road / Doggett Street corner.
Wallace Bishop have also requested deep planting on the site in order to bring in a sense of greenery to the revitalisation with the help of large, sub-tropical tree species.
“The very urbane nature of the site, coupled with the creation of a highly active street frontage and deep sub-tropical planting, will result in an outcome that is consistent with good urban design objectives for an inner city, commercial, and highly pedestrian-trafficked location,” the proposal said.
