World-class wellness and fitness centre proposed for Gasworks precinct
Gasworks could soon welcome a world-class wellness and fitness centre housing Olympic-endorsed equipment if a development application from Cavcorp is approved. The proposed four-storey building is situated at 20 and 20a Festival Place and 18 Longland Street, Newstead, and will be the third stage of its popular Long Island development.
If approved, Stage 3 of Long Island would include a three-level state-of-the-art fitness centre complete with a rooftop pool deck with spas, yoga pavilion, meditation room, bar and wellness rooms. According to the development application, the centre would also offer evidence-based complementary and allied health therapies across its 3,800-sqm of gross floor area.
At its heart, a public piazza space is proposed that will include interactive water features, garden beds, lighting, and an artistic sculptural pavilion. Long Island’s landscape plan, designed by Form Architects, celebrates Brisbane’s subtropical environment and provides a rich urban experience with landscaping sprawling from the ground plane, up the walls and onto the roof, embedding greenery into the whole site. On the second rooftop, a large landscaped green roof is proposed to house a vegetable garden, beehives and a shed. Stage 1 Long Island and Lucent has been recognised by multiple industry bodies and Brisbane City Council as a benchmark project of Architectural Excellence.
