BRISBANE | 111 Mary St. + 222 Margaret St. | 297m | U/C

90-storey building planned for Vision Tower site

THE site of the failed Vision Tower in the Brisbane CBD has been earmarked for what is being touted as Brisbane's tallest building.

The new owners of the property which spans between 111 Mary Street and 222 Margaret Street, have lodged a development application with the Brisbane City Council for a 90-storey or 297 m-tall development.

It proposes two towers for the site featuring a five-star hotel, commercial and residential development. The project will be known as 111+222.


The property has sat vacant since the Vision project went into receivership. It was sold off by its liquidators for about $40 million last year in a deal negotiated by Jeff Dolan and Damian Winterburn.

Clearing work and excavation works had been finished some years ago with the seven-level hole filling with water following January's floods in Brisbane.

Developers John Kinsella's Billbergia Group and AMP Capital Investors revealed today a premium hotel was a key component of the application.

Billbergia spokesman Rick Graf said the development would consist of two towers - one 90 storeys and the other 34 storeys.

The plans lodged with council are for; a 34-storey tower at 111 Mary Street, a 380 room hotel at 222 Margaret St, with ballroom, restaurants and bars, and a public link from Mary St to Margaret St, a residential tower with a mix of 790 studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments.

The first stage of the development will be to provide eight levels of underground car parking with 980 spaces.

With the site already excavated it is hoped work will start on that stage this year and be finished by the end of next year.

The two towers have been designed by Bates Smart Architects and the project is expected to take about five years to complete.

Better than I had hoped! And I recall that a number of Brisbane forumers were skeptical that this would be an absolute tallest.

Yep, we're stoked! This is equal in height to Eureka tower in Melbourne. Oh, and Infinity Tower got a height increase on the same day!

Just perusing the local forum I get the impression that Brisbanites have very little faith that this is going to come to fruition.

They paid $40 million for the site, it's Billbergia's first development of such scale, and the demand is well and truly there - be it retail, office, residential and hotel. The likelihood of it going ahead is more chance than not.

I think this tower will eventually go ahead... the Brisbane City Council and QLD State Government are investing so much money into the capital city...

This tower will be a great addition to the city skyline and fills the low void in the middle part of the city centre - and moves away from the golden triangle too...

I think I prefer 111+222 over Vision - it looks less like a dildo for one

i still prefer Vision, this one would look a lot better had the original design never had been released... but then again it still looks amazing, Brisbane makes Adelaide look like a complete backwater

Does South Australia/Adelaide have strict height restrictions?

In all fairness - Brisbane unlike Adelaide is a big port city and has over two million people - Adelaide has 1.2 million?
