Fortitude Valley’s Rental Market Gets a Boost with Proposed Winn Street Development

Fortitude Valley's Rental Market Gets a Boost with Proposed Winn Street Development

Two new towers named Winn Street will soon rise, facing Ann Street and McLachlan Street, adding 396 homes to the Fortitude Valley build-to-rent market.



Sungard Property Group has submitted plans for two new towers, one with 20 storeys and the other, 20 storeys tall, as part of a project that focuses on creating a wellness space with retail frontage and mezzanine studios equipped with traditional gym facilities.

The project will have a pool terrace that offers residents a distinct indoor/outdoor entertainment and leisure area. The inclusion of food and beverage options further elevates the tenant experience, reminiscent of the high-end offerings available at the nearby Calile Hotel.

Sungard’s chief executive, Adrian Bogatez, has expressed excitement about the growing popularity of the build-to-rent market in Australia. He believes Fortitude Valley is the perfect location for this project.

The Valley has experienced natural growth, starting from the James Street precinct. Bogatez envisions Winn Street as a natural progression of that vibrant atmosphere, combining the Brunswick Street area with James Street.

The residences at Winn Street have been carefully planned to engage with the natural environment. They consider aspects such as light, views, and organisation. The design palette embraces a minimalist approach, allowing tenants to personalize their living spaces with a range of high-quality, earth-toned materials.

Furthermore, the rooftops provide residents with a unique opportunity to connect with nature. These inviting outdoor spaces feature herb gardens, citrus groves, shaded eating areas, BBQ zones, and private dining pods. Tenants can socialize, host guests, and unwind whilst enjoying stunning views of the city and the river.

Despite concerns about potential noise from nearby live music venues like The Zoo, Sungard also hopes to create synergy between the residential development and the surrounding venues.



The proposal includes ground-floor retail and bars to attract visitors. Ample parking spaces for cars and bicycles, with a total of 315 spots will also be provided.
