BRISBANE | Projects & Construction

Welcome to a city where you are free to be whoever you want to be! Where you can escape to the natural splendour of Moreton Bay and Islands or the Scenic Rim and Country Valleys, experience world-class exhibitions at Australia’s largest Gallery of Modern Art and indulge in the country’s premier live music scene, The Valley… all in one day!

You’ll love our buzzing urban villages with live music, the coolest cafes and an eclectic array of the finest restaurants. Keep an eye on Brisbane’s events’ calendar for huge international sporting events, exciting and unique festivals as well as live performances on Queensland’s premier shopping precinct, the Queen Street Mall where you can let loose and discover world-class retailers and heritage-listed arcades with over 700 specialty stores.

Imagine being right in the heart of the city, surrounded by skyscrapers, as you experience your own river adventure – go kayaking, roller-blading or hold your breath as you abseil 20 metres down the 20 million year old Kangaroo Point Cliffs… there’s a memorable Brisbane experience for everyone.

I think 111 with it's blue glass will work nicely between Riparian and Riverside - break them up ...

Infinity is going to be an iconic tower for the northern district of downtown Brisbane as there are no tall towers down that end ...

'The Milton' - 30 levels.

Located only two kilometres from the Brisbane CBD The Milton will deliver a prime address at the heart of one of the city’s most vibrant destinations. Once completed this will be the tallest building in Brisbane outside of the city centre

King George Central Tower



Image - http://www.kinggeorgecentral.com.au/index.php

Leighton Properties and Devine Limited have teamed up to build Brisbane’s newest office tower. The tower is to be called King George Central due to its close proximity to Brisbane’s newly redeveloped King George Square. The developer of Brisbane’s 400 George St project will build the 150 meter high tower which will become Brisbane’s most healthy office building.

Apparently inner-city population density is a huge priority for the Brisbane City Council and they're building up Milton, Fortitude Valley, West End and Newstead with new residential developments ...

Another proposed complex in Fortitude Valley.

WATPAC Twin Towers

Developer WATPAC has proposed two twin residential towers situated in St Pauls Tce in the Fortitude Valley. The site is near Leighton’s now completed Green Square development.

The proposed twin towers will be a two-staged construction process. The site which was amalgamated from three individual sites will undergo a large urban renewal and rejuvenation process. A green ‘garden-like’ public square will be constructed to connect pedestrian walkways together, syncing the project in harmony with the Valley precinct.

The height of the two proposed towers is around 31 stories high, this height will allow for increased public ground space. The higher the tower, the denser it becomes. Density is the key to maintaining Brisbane’s current lifestyle, without expanding the city’s fringe outwards and reducing future demands for new road infrastructure.

Designed by Nettleton Tribe who also crafted Skyline Apartments, this development will house approximately 412 apartments.

One One One is going up fast - and when completed will block out CP1 from the riverfront.

This proposed image makes One One One look grey - the glass has changed to blue which looks better. I wish One One One was slightly taller but it's still a good addition down there.
