The Brisbane CBD will welcome a new $300 million 34-storey office tower come 2015, with the 180 Brisbane to set a new standard for office towers in the city.
Japanese developers Daisho Group launched the project in late April, with the tower incorporating eco-friendly design that will set a “new standard of sustainability”, targeting a 6 Greenstar GBCA rating.
The building will feature commercial space, extensive landscaping, a restaurant/bar, mid podium food court, onsite tenant parking with over 200 car bays, and jogger and cyclist changing rooms, showers and lockers.
180 Brisbane was reported by the Courier Mail to be the first commercial high-rise building to be built speculatively in Brisbane since the start of the global financial crisis, with Daisho Group president Katsumi Tada stating that he believes the building will be another “high quality addition to the city”.
The multimillion dollar project could also present opportunities for apprenticeships in Brisbane over the next two years of construction.
The office tower is situated in a prominent CBD location, sitting in close proximity to public transport, retail amenities and banking.
The 180 Brisbane tower is expected to be completed by mid 2015.
