Actually this suits the skyline quite well so the design does work.

480 Queen is approved. Rumours around are saying that it could hit 86 storeys!!!

Council approves Brisbane's tallest tower - new $650M project
QBR Tuesday 27 March 2007

Property developer APH has received Brisbane City Council Development Approval for what will be the city’s tallest tower – a 70-level commercial office, 5 star hotel and luxury residences development at 480 Queen Street, Brisbane.

The $650 million development come has been approved to 250m high, but will climb much higher once the city’s height limit is removed under the new CBD Masterplan.

The tower will also contain the Brisbane CBD’s first new 5-star apartment hotel project in more than a decade.

The new development approval comprises three major components to the new mixed-use development:

• 29,500 sq m of A-grade office space;
• 168 hotel apartments; and
• 109 premium residential apartments.

APH settled the $32 million purchase of the 480 Queen Street property in July 2006, and recently acquired the adjoining 828 sqm "Dome Niteclub" site for $7 million to incorporate into the tower plans.

"This iconic development will deliver the next generation of technology and sustainable design with first class accommodation facilities for office workers, short-term visitors to Brisbane and permanent residents as well as unparalleled and uninterrupted views of the Brisbane River, the Story Bridge and greater Brisbane," says APH Managing Director John Wilson.

Water-harvesting, black-water recycling, evaporative and other sustainable and energy efficient technologies will be employed to help conserve water and minimise energy consumption.

The project architects, Brisbane’s Cottee Parker, has worked with APH on several developments, including Aurora Tower, which was completed in May 2006.

"It was important that we chose a local architect sympathetic to the challenges facing Brisbane," Wilson says.

"Cottee Parker is uniquely Brisbane and has added some fantastic buildings to the Brisbane skyline."

Demolition works at 480 Queen Street will commence in December 2007, with construction to start in March 2008. Completion of the project is forecast for November 2010.

The office component of the building will be released to the market first, followed by the hotel and residential components.

"We expect the market to welcome the office space with open arms. Current research shows there is virtually zero A-grade commercial space currently available for lease in the Brisbane CBD, and 2% vacancy across all grades," says Wilson.

I'm just hoping it hits the magic 300m to roof height after the redesign, then all my prayers are answered

New CBD Masterplan should be out before the end of the year. We will see an increase in height then!

Should be out when the City Centre Neighbourhood Plan becomes official. It is in the draft stages at the moment.
