FV No 1

The third in a tryptich of towers, FV No 1 takes its name from it’s location – Fortitude Valley in Brisbane, Australia, the city’s creative and entertainment hub.

Architects Elenberg Fraser have designed three curvilinear towers to create a residential complex that will be a western gateway to the precinct. The project has retained the heritage façades  of the buildings on the site with FV No 1 now forming a contemporary backdrop.

With 267 residential units and 70 short-term, hotel style accommodation and retail outlets on the ground floor, residents of this tower will have exclusive access to business facilities, a rooftop pool and gardens and private dining.

Inhabit provided full engineering and site inspection scope to the builder, assisting them with direct procurement. Inhabit also undertook condensation assessment to assist them with the double skin cavity and an acoustic assessment so the project complies with Fortitude Valley’s entertainment precinct requirements.

The project is under construction and is expected to be completed in mid-2019.
