Charter Hall has announced the lodgement of a Development Application with Brisbane City Council for a new iconic office building which will transform the George Street end of the Queen Street Mall.
To be known as 60 Queen Street, the $480 million development is planned to become a new benchmark for sub-tropical design. Occupant experience will be enhanced through maximising river views and daylight, while generous sky parks offer both entertainment and outdoor collaboration spaces for staff in all weather conditions.
Subject to Council approval, the proposed development will comprise 24,495sqm NLA of office accommodation over 33 levels, 2,162sqm of retail space, end of trip facilities and basement car parking for 95 cars.
Charter hall’s Regional Development Director QLD & WA, Mr Bradley Norris, said “As one of Australia’s major office developers and owners, we aim to create next generation, high quality buildings designed to support our tenant customers’ requirements for technology enabled, collaborative workplaces, that provide a healthy, productive environment for their employees.”
60 Queen Street’s proximity to Queen St Mall, Queens Wharf and the new Brisbane Metro station is expected to be a drawcard for prospective tenants.
“60 Queen Street’s design will capture the two most important gateway streets to the retail heart of Brisbane as well as becoming a counterpoint to Queens Wharf. The highly prominent ground floor retail and a lower ground supermarket will create a welcoming entrance to the Queen Street Mall” said Mr Norris.
Designed by renowned Brisbane architects BlightRayner the building’s ambition and vision is to capture the essence of Brisbane by opening up to the river’s edge outlook over Reddalcliff Place and by incorporating winter rooms and balconies which allow access to fresh air and elevated garden spaces. The design aims to achieve all 31 criteria of Brisbane City Council’s ‘Building’s that Breathe’ guidelines which support Council’s vision for new buildings to embrace Brisbane’s subtropical climate by opening up to cooling breezes, providing lush landscaping, shade and comfort.
In support of Charter Hall’s commitment to sustainable design, 60 Queen Street is targeting a 6 Star Green Star rating and 5.5 star NABERS energy rating. As part of this goal, the contemporary design has been shaped to allow sun hoods which direct both internal and external views and provide protection to the north-west solar impacts.
