A group of residents from Upper Mount Gravatt are worried that a proposal to build three residential towers at Klumpp Road could bring more traffic to the area.

The locals took to social media to express their worries about the development application for 110 Klumpp Road, Upper Mt Gravatt. According to residents, it may cause further traffic along the Westfield shopping complex and on the entry of the Pacific Motorway. 

Oakridge Property Group, developers of the residential towers, sought the removal of resident parking on the ground floor level from their original proposal, including apartments to the said level with large green terraces connecting to communal recreation amenities.

To be called “The Pavilion,” the towers would have a total of 144 units, distributed among two towers of 5 storeys and one tower of 6 storeys. The units will be a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units.

Designed by MAS- Architecture Studio, the towers will feature a swimming pool and bbq area, and recreation facilities to match the surrounding greenery.

Another concern from residents is the number of parking being sought for the residential towers, which is a total of 199 residents and 28 visitor car parking spaces.

In response to the residents’ concerns, Oakridge Property Group said the intersection upgrades, which are part of the proposal, will be undertaken to further mitigate the traffic caused by the development.

The developers added that the site has a potential for increased public and active transport use, given that it’s well located to bus services at Klumpp Rd and the Veloway bike path.

A traffic report for the application also states that “the site’s additional traffic generation, compared to the approved development, does not warrant further assessment and the Approved upgrade works at the Klumpp Road / Hibiscus Place intersection remain relevant.”
