BRISBANE | Trilogy Tower | 265m | 70 fl | On Hold

New tower in Brisbane - 255m tall to roof, fourth tallest building in Australia (to roof).

One of 3 cool new towers in Brisbane going up soon:

480 Queen Street










It will be the second tallest tower in Brisbane after Vision (283m) below:


and will be just taller than Empire Square (240m) (same architects as 480 Queen Street):


So all in all it is on like donkey kong in Brisbane!

Who is the architect?

I just wanna know why cant he come up with something new other than his usual color-tone, kinda over used style of fins and shape.

What do you mean usual Chad, it's only the second green glass tower they have done other than Empire Square, so 2 doesn't exactly make a pattern.

As for it having similar styling cues in areas, well that is true of most architects, be it Foster or Buchan in Brisbane (who did Vision and ANA on the Gold Coast).

As for the green glass, probably cos it's cheap, but then again Empire Square was going to be gold so who knows, maybe council nixs 'adventurous' glass colours.

It should be approved by the end of the second quarter next year going on DA's like Empire Square. The leases run out I think August 2007. I read they wanted to start marketing it early 2007 so I'd say it would start late 2007/early 2008 depending on if they wait for presales or get a big commerical tenant or something.

Just as well there will be Vision and ES to watch before that!

The white 'fin' on 480 queen is actually a giant lantern lighting feature as far as we know.. so it isnt 'just a fin'
