With the latest revision of the development application for California Lane in Fortitude Valley, the developer, AMC Developments, intends to inject some Californian style to the space.

California Lane is the third laneway to be redeveloped as part of the move to rejuvenate the laneway culture in Fortitude Valley. The first one was Winn Lane, which was successfully transformed into a haven for creative artisans, fashion designers and foodies. Next on the list of Valley laneway redevelopment is Bakery Lane, which will be a mix of cafes, restaurants, office and apartments.

A fourth laneway to be redeveloped is the Warner Lane, which will feature a new restaurant and bar at 702 Ann Street. All the small laneways will be connected once the fifth laneway, called Lucky’s Lane, is developed.

Californian Treatment

AMC Developments, which also lodged the redevelopment proposal for Bakery Lane, submitted minor revisions to the California Lane development application in response to the conditional approval given by the Brisbane City Council.

The council asked the developer to reconfigure the layout of the plan and reduce the number of tenancies from 11 to seven new tenancies. Also conditional to the approval was the addition of outdoor seating and dining areas as well as retractable awning for outdoor dining

The revision submitted not only complied with the conditions by the council, but also espoused a Californian feel in its architectural style. Design renders show Phoenix palms adding a posh Californian touch to the proposed retail precinct.
