I wonder if they have signed up a hotel and this would impact on the staging? It could help the tale tower get up, especially as there isn't a massive need for office space currently (this was meant to be stage 2 after the competition of the car park.

I thought they had signed up Four Seasons.

It would be the first I've heard of it. You're not thinking of what will be a Four Points by Sheraton hotel next door are you?

I hope the airport authorities accept increasing the height limit of the CBD to 350m.
It's nearly 10 months the Mayor has submitted the request to aviation authorities but no news on that yet.
When the Mayor said he had written to CASA requesting that building heights be allowed to 300-350m he mentioned that he wanted to get it in in time for when they handed down their decision in Feb 2014. (I think)

Might have been Shangri La, pretty sure someone mentioned a hotel commitment for this some time back but my memory could be faulty.

There has been no decision of the hotel operator yet unfortunately.

I think we were just trying to guess who it may of been that they were in negotiations with. I remember us talking about some operators, but I do not remember anything about contracts being signed.

I remember Four Seasons, Westin and Shangri-La were discussed as the potential calibre of what they were hoping to get, though Four Seasons is actually much nicer than the other two to be honest. I'd like an Intercontinental.

Rumour has the hotel as Conrad....
Doubt Four Seasons would open another hotel in Australia

Shangri-la already has traders operating in Roma street
Intercontinental....don't think so

Why Conrad? Why wouldn't Four Seasons open another hotel in Australia? Why does Shangri-La having traders prevent them from opening a Shangri-La? Why not Intercontinental, given they have a hotel in ADELAIDE?

I hope this doesn't get you horny because it's nothing spectacular. Seeing as we haven't been fortunate enough to get any pics posted for a long time I thought I'd share with you what I found out today from one of the concrete workers.

Two floors of the basement have been completed. The lift core,( framework can be seen just beside the crane tower from Mary Street) is up to the sixth floor. He said that there was still a bit of digging to do on the Margaret Street side (something to do with allowing water to be pumped away more easily if needed). There are only two excavators on site now compared with what he said was about eight initially (I think that might be a bit exaggerated).

They are working on the Mary Street side first so I'm not sure if the completed floors go right across the basement or not (never thought to ask until later) but if there is still some digging to be done on that side..........

There are a couple of columns can be seen over on the Margaret Street side which were not visible to me at the weekend so maybe they miraculously appeared today.

He seemed to think that they are on track to fit in with Billbergia's prediction of completion early 2014. That still means twelve months from Feb this year when they got going in earnest. Seems a long time.

It would be lovely if somebody could get us some photos. Nudge,nudge, wink,wink.

Some good news,I hope they sell the hotel very soon
Quote:
Hotel sale sees future emerge out of Vision
BILLION-DOLLAR plans for a mixed-use development on the Brisbane site that was once home to the Vision project have received a shot in the arm with the $200 million hotel component going on sale.
Joint venture partners AMP Capital and private developer Billbergia are looking to pre-sell the five-star hotel at 222 Margaret Street, with most of the interest tipped to come out of Asia.
Agents McVay Real Estate and Savills are offering the hotel, which will be inside what will become Brisbane's tallest tower.
The planned development in the city's heart will incorporate a 274m mixed-use tower, including the five-star hotel and up to 850 apartments.
A second tower, fronting Mary Street, will house up to 35,000sq m of A-grade office space. If a Queensland government lease can be tied down, that element of the project is also expected to come to market.
The 380-room hotel is being pitched as the city's first five-star in 14 years, though it will face some competition as rival developers have projects in the works.
The key attraction is the offer of a hotel with vacant possession, which could see operators that are under-represented in Queensland -- including the likes of Starwood, Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, Park Hyatt or even Mandarin Oriental -- team up with real estate investors to secure a hotel.
Selling agent Dan McVay of McVay Real Estate said that several global hotel brands had already expressed interest in operating the hotel, which demonstrated the strong demand for a new Brisbane CBD hotel.
Michael Simpson of Savills added that the tightly held Brisbane market had an acute shortage of luxury hotel accommodation.

Maybe, just maybe, those revised DA changes that are being processed do have something to do with the revised staging (in progress) of construction and for the reasons that we are hoping.

Wow, can't believe the Marriott was completed in 1999. It's such a late 80's early 90's cookie-cutter post modern design.
