Thanks to developer Sekisui House's West Village project, West End is about to become even buzzier. Built around the former Peter's Ice Cream Factory, West Village sets a benchmark for urban renewal and design.

Key to the project design is laneways between buildings and throughout the retail precinct to create an intimate village feel. x1screen-shot-2016-11-14-at-5-54-29-pm Incorporating the heritage ice cream factory buildings, West Village's seven separate apartment buildings each have their own distinct style and character, all surrounded by lush tropical gardens. Inside the apartments interior designers Hayball promise "generous living celebrating the quintessential Brisbane outdoor/indoor living environment." With the emphasis on community and outdoor leisure, residents of West Village will enjoy a podium pool as well as luxury communal rooftop with pizza oven, fridges, teppanyaki BBQ, fire pit and outdoor cinema screen.
