Wow, Brisbane is sprouting. Not sure about the design though, it almost looks dated already.

I too hope this tower gets built - this site has a notorious reputation so it would be fantastic for it to actually get built, and a great addition to the skyline of BrisVegas

The real important question is will this tower have an observation deck like Q1 or will they selfishly reserve such awesome views for those rich few who can afford to live there?

Vision's plan had an observation deck and if this doesn't then it is giant backwards step in my opinion.

Pity this tower proposal got shortened to 274m. Still a good height for Brisbane.

Brisbane looks likely to have reached its pinnacle after yesterday's announcement of a 90-storey building on Margaret Street that, on completion, will probably remain the city's tallest.

Unless guidelines by Airservices Australia and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority change, the 274-metre 111+222 development is the highest a building can be built in Brisbane's central business district.

The restriction is not due to fears that an aircraft would physically strike the building, but rather that tall buildings could cause radar signal reflection, an Airservices spokesman said last night.

The spokesman for Airservices Australia, the agency responsible for air traffic control, said radar signal reflections and interference with summer take-off and landing flight paths into the wind were the two main issues confronting development in the CBD.

"Anything above that height interferes with the radar signals and also could conceivably cause problems for flight paths into Brisbane Airport," he said.

"Essentially it is a safety issue and CASA being the safety authority has very strict height limits that have to be met around flight path areas."

Fantastic! I love it. What an impressive presence on the skyline. Whoever super-imposed those photos of the finished tower, into the skyline photos, did an excellent job!

This is approved at 274m currently, though developers are apparently pushing for the original 297m or possible 300m to make it the tallest building in Australia. Many city councilors have backed the project and what it will do for Brisbane, too
