Mirvac is delighted to announce that our proposed development at 50 Ashmore Street has received Development Approval from Brisbane City Council.
Mirvac, working in conjunction with the community and Council, aims to deliver a community that adds value to Everton Park and creates a lasting legacy in the local area.
We are excited to deliver a new chapter for this historic site, with high quality residences that will set a new benchmark for design in Everton Park. This will include the installation of solar plus battery systems to all terrace homes as well as an exclusive residents club that will include a pool and recreation centre all overlooking the Kedron Brook.
As part of the community, we will be delivering a 1.1 hectare eco area alongside Kedron Brook, creating new green space for the Everton Park locals to enjoy, while improving the area’s ecological health.

Delivering communities that create a lasting legacy is at the cornerstone of everything Mirvac does. Our vision for this new community is to create diverse and high quality homes for local downsizers, families and couples to join the existing Everton Park community.
Mirvac’s proposed community will feature:
- A mix of contemporary homes designed to complement the existing neighbourhood
- No apartments are proposed
- Detached homes and terrace homes to meet the changing needs of families
- All terrace homes are 2 storeys
- A 1.1 hectare eco area that will sit alongside the existing Kedron Brook bikeway and waterway
- No impact on the existing Kedron Brook bike path
- Retention and restoration of the heritage Queenslander house ‘Murphy’s Dairy Residence’. Restoration works to this house are currently underway and are anticipated to complete late this year.
- All detached homes will be controlled by Residential Design Guidelines to ensure a high level of quality is maintained throughout the community
- Double lock up garages provided for each residence
- 26 visitor car spaces which is almost double what is required in accordance with the Planning Scheme
- Additional visitor parking is available on the driveways of the house lots
The total number of residences has been reduced from 139 to 124
Three storey terrace homes have been removed. All residences are now only two-storeys in height.
All 300sqm blocks have been removed from the masterplan, with the minimum land size increased to 400sqm.
The average size of the blocks throughout the development is now 458sqm. The land lots are also deeper and have wider frontages.
Visitor carparking has now increased from 14 to 26 spaces, which is almost double what is required in accordance with the Planning Scheme.
Based on community and council feedback the bulk and scale of the terrace homes has been reduced.
The surrounding residential streets such as Ashmore Street, Barrymore Street, Venning Street and Newhaven Street are categorised as "Neighbourhood Roads", which are designed to allow parking on either side while maintaining traffic flow in each direction. If two cars park on opposite sides, through traffic will need to proceed in one direction at a time. Brisbane City Council indicates that Neighbourhood Roads can carry traffic volumes of 1,000 to 3,000 vehicles per day. Taking into consideration ongoing development on other properties and the proposed development, all surrounding residential streets in the local area are expected to carry traffic volumes within this range.
Whilst the main driveway to the site is on Ashmore Street, traffic will be able to use several neighbourhood roads to access the wider road network including Ashmore Street, Barrymore Street and Venning Street. With these routing options, traffic movements from the development will be dispersed, meaning traffic volumes on these roads will remain within the acceptable ranges nominated by Brisbane City Council.
The proposed access solution is the most suitable solution balancing both Brisbane City Council and Transport and Main Roads requirements.
