A new 37-storey, A-grade commercial tower will soon be erected on 200 Turbot Street. The development, designed by Blight Rayner, includes a suspended campus-style building positioned adjacent to the old Brisbane Dental Hospital and College which is now considered a heritage site. Three ground-floor retail outlets are also included in this proposal as well as cross-block link interfaces with Wickham Park and King Edward Parks.
A three-dimensional tower is the design of choice for this ambitious project. With sky gardens at Podium Level 8, 19th Floor and roof, it will be both a green oasis as well as an architectural marvel to behold!
The Turbot Street streetscape is pedestrian-only, but vehicles can reach the tower through a back road. To widen this unnamed street, some low concrete walls and vegetation will be removed to make room for wider roads. The Brisbane Tuff retaining wall must also be moved on Observatory Park’s property line so that it doesn’t get in the way of construction plans.
The Brisbane Live Arena is situated just a few yards away from the planned site for our project. The arena will host swimming events at the 2032 Olympics.
Mirvac is currently developing Suncorp’s new headquarters for Queensland Government-owned property, with the opportunity of an anchor tenant before purchase. They were able to refurbish 80 Ann Street into a 39,600 sq.m. commercial building featuring ground-floor retail and laneway within a heritage setting.
