Solarus, Townsville, QLD (AUS), Commercial-Others

Solarus on Palmer Street will provide a new benchmark in style and design for Townsville, responsive to the tropical location on Ross Creek. Designed by Sanjiv Malhan of PCA Architects, the architecture embodies a clean modern expression in waterfront living. Roof overhangs, pergolas and distinctive shading devices encourage passive temperature control. Vivid white exterior walls are complimented by the aqua and silver balustrades to thoughtfully express a sophisticated North Queensland sensibility. All apartments are designed for optimal cross ventilation for improved amenity and sustainability, with multiple lift cores providing the highest levels of luxury and security. Only two apartments are accessed from the lift on any residential level. The development comprises 73 luxury apartments situated on the river, close to Townsvilles city centre, over 12 storeys. A tavern and restaurant cover the ground level, with terraces offering views out towards the ocean. Basement parking is provided, along with gym and pool terrace on an elevated podium. The stepped form provides a dramatic statement when viewed from the North West. Expansive views north towards Magnetic Island and the city centre are available from every apartment, with generous north facing balconies shading the sleek contemporary interiors. Apartment designs that are spatially efficient, combined with a functional clarity will bring to Solarus an unrivalled level of sophistication. Water and energy efficient appliances have been selected to raise environmental standards in these high rise apartments. The vibrant restaurants of Palmer Street are a short stroll away. Close by is Jupiters Casino, ferry access to Magnetic Island and The Strand. Extensive marina berths are situated nearby on Ross Creek. Residents will have access to gym and pool, with parkland by the water opposite.
