What to consider when planning multiple dwelling apartments or townhouse developments in Brisbane

Multiple dwelling means a residential use of premises involving three or more dwellings, whether attached or detached, for seperate households.
Examples include apartments, flats, units, townhouses, row housing, and triplex. Multiple dwellings (e.g. townhouses or apartments) are distinctively different to dual occupancies.

Examples of a dual occupancy include a duplex, two dwellings on a single lot (either attached or detached), two dwellings within a single community title scheme, or two dwellings within a single body corporate.

While every site has its own limitations and should be reviewed individually, below are some common issues we face when consulting with clients on multiple dwelling projects.

What is the difference between a townhouse and an apartment (unit)?


town planning
Townhouses generally appear as a small house across 2-3 storeys. They don’t have a separate apartment above or beneath them. Generally, townhouses have their own ground floor outdoor private open space which isn't shared as common property.

Apartment (unit)

town planning
An apartment or unit is a home in a larger building. People in the same building typically share car parking, hallways, foyers, garbage disposal, stairs, and recreational spaces.
