New 11-Storey Twin Towers Proposed on Dover Street, Albion

The skyline of Albion could be set for a transformation with the unveiling of OpenCorp’s plans for new 11-storey twin towers on Dover Street. If approved, the development will deliver 218 apartments constructed in two stages.




OpenCorp unveiled its plans for the transformation of its property at 31 Dover Street, acquired in 2016 for $11 million. Designed by Hayes Anderson Lynch (HAL), the proposal seeks approval for a twin tower residential development on a 5,600sqm site at 31 Dover Street, Albion.

Consisting of 218 one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, the development will be completed in two stages. The southern tower, forming the first stage, will comprise 110 apartments, followed by the northern tower with 108 apartments. The strategic V-shaped design ensures that each dwelling enjoys a view into the communal courtyard whilst maintaining privacy from the other tower.

“The ‘V’ shaped floor plate design ensures that no apartments look directly into one another, and provides for substantial communal open space within the site. Accordingly, apartments in each tower are oriented at 90 degrees to each other, and the apartments look out over and into the communal open space.” — RPS Group

At the ground floor level, between the two towers, a central pavilion will house a gym and formal dining area, available for small functions through a booking system. Surrounding this pavilion will be informal seating and gathering areas, a yoga deck, and enchanting water features.

Residents will also have access to communal rooftop areas in each tower, which boast swimming pools, BBQ facilities, and sun lounge terraces, providing panoramic views of the city and the picturesque surroundings.

All dwellings will feature private open spaces accessible from the main living areas. Ground floor terraces/courtyards will grace 11 of the dwellings, ranging in size from approximately 35.8m² to 92.1m², providing ample room for relaxation and outdoor activities.

The remaining dwellings will feature balconies ranging from around 10.7 sqm to 29.9 sqm, meticulously designed in proportion to the apartment’s size and number of bedrooms.

The development ensures ample parking for 371 residents’ cars and 55 visitor spaces across two basement levels. Additionally, provisions have been made for resident bicycle storage, promoting environmentally friendly transportation options.

Moreover, with Albion railway station a mere 550 meters away and easy access to bus routes and major roads, residents will enjoy convenient connectivity. The Albion Centre, boutique breweries, coffee outlets, and nearby Crosby Park public open space offer a vibrant and dynamic lifestyle within reach.
