....now if only they could find some tenants!!

this is shaping up to be a bloodbath for GPT. it might be the best looking office tower ever built in the brisbane CBD, but i think it is also going to be the least-popular in terms of tenant commitments. does anyone know how many floors were leased in waterfront when it was completed??

Basement would likely have water in it already.

Yes and I would assume most buildings basements would have water in them. Especially when most buildings have car park driveways leading down into the basements. All those driveways are perfect for the flood waters

Actually, despite the Riparian carpark entrance being flooded, there are floodgates protecting the Riverside carpark. Despite that, water was still flowing into the 111 basement, plus sewerage from nearby restaurants. A 6-storey swimming pool down there now.

111 certainly isn't the only one. Up the road a bit, Festival Towers has a big muddy swimming pool in it's carpark by the looks of it!

It will be one of Brisbane's better ones for sure!

The flooding has probably caused the builders one hell of a headache though, you would think.

Any doubts about the bracing not being visible in the sun have gone as well.

I'd say there will be no work this week as the basements are drained and they are more than likely going to have to replace equipment and material.

This building has a bit of a Norman Foster vibe about it, probably the combo of glass and bracing.
