BRISBANE | Eagle Street Pier | 250m+ | 70 fl x 2 | On Hold

This is a new Riverside Development for the Brisbane CBD. The exact height of the towers are unknown, but the top of the spire for the neighbouring building seen in the renders is 250m.

Application will be lodged to the authorities in the second half of the year. Enjoy:

Below is a render that forumer Malt has done, showing what the 2 new buildings may look like on the Brisbane skyline.

The grey building's render with the vine-shaped curves on the facade to the right is another proposed scraper known as
Riverside Centre II, 47-levels @ 193m & will be an office building.

Thanks to Locke at AAS

Wow, Wow, Wow!!!!

Only way is up for Brisbane
23 August 2007 - The Australian

Developers want to build tall towers as height restrictions are abolished

DEVELOPERS are planning a multi-billion-dollar swag of super-tall projects in Brisbane as the City Council moves closer to lifting CBD height restrictions.

Five skyscrapers are proposed that will be in the same league as Austcorp's 79-storey Vision tower in Mary Street. After lengthy delays, construction is scheduled to start soon on the 259m Vision tower with its spire soaring to283m.

Two mixed-use towers that Stockland is planning on its Eagle Street Pier site are expected to be 278m and 249m, and Meriton's proposed 70-storey apartment tower on the corner of Adelaide and Boundary streets is due to top 243m.

Two towers, both of which have Brisbane City Council approval, will come in at 240m: the APH consortium's project at 480 Queen Street and developer Metacap's Empire Square on Elizabeth Street.

After the council flagged the removal of CBD height restrictions last year, the concept had now become a statutory document and was set to be approved by both the council and the state Government before the end of the year, a council spokesman said yesterday.

Releasing the plan for public comment last week, Deputy Mayor and urban planning chairman David Hinchliffe said some building heights would still be restricted.

"But for about 80 per cent of the CBD, height restrictions would be effectively lifted," Mr Hinchliffe said.

Limits would remain around malls, parks, public squares and next to heritage buildings and vistas. Protection of history was a significant part of the plan, Mr Hinchliffe said.

Currently, 125 places are listed on the heritage register, and the plan will add a further 36 buildings and 16 structures to the list.

Mr Hinchliffe said the plan focused on creating high-quality pedestrian experiences, promoting excellence in building design and providing "appropriate" high-density living.

Mirvac's Queensland chief executive, Chris Freeman, said he supported the plan because it paid attention to good design and its qualifications meant it was not a blanket approach allowing unrestricted development.

"It is a very sensible approach that allows flexibility," he said.

Brendan Gleeson, professor of urban policy and director of the Urban Research Program at Griffith University, said the plan sought to restrict the footprint of very large buildings rather than letting them spread to a wider area. "There may be all sorts of reasons why you would build tall buildings, but they are not environmental," he said.

But he said he applauded the plan for its focus on building design, and he urged the council to pay close attention to the environmental standards in the proposed new towers.

New buildings were more sustainable than others that had been built even in the recent past, Professor Gleeson said.

Mr Hinchliffe urged people to read the plan on the council's website and said they could comment until September 17.

The $500 million, 44-level Riverside II tower that GPT last week committed to build in Eagle Street is to be about 193m tall.

But none of Brisbane's new generation of towers reaches as tall as the 322m, 80-storey Q1 on the Gold Coast, or Melbourne's 92-level, 297m Eureka tower.
