It's hard to tell since most of their work (that I can find) is only in Taiwan and one in Vietnam so the design that they use could be totally different to here. In saying that their designs don't look amazing....at all. But that's only from a very quick search!

One of there projects in Vietnam.......

Judging by their video it looks like they create very "efficient" designs...

Wow, that stuff is pretty atrocious. As you said though, it fits with what they have over there and there is obviously less architectural expectation.

They've been designed with a certain location in mind. If they have indeed gotten the Courthouse site, I'd say that they'd probably work with local (or truly international) architects on the site.

Just wish we'd get some solid info on what's happening here.

I personally could easily live with something like the pics above. I like that style and the little boxes on the roof and I think it would fit in quite nicely in that location.

Of course, it's correct that it will probably be something more fitting with Brisbane. I just hope that doesn't mean fitting in with the likes of Devine inspired architecture or other previous boxes.

You have got to be kidding?? Those buildings look like absolute rubbish and if anything like that was built on the OSC site it would be the greatest eyesore along that side of the Brisbane CBD!

Yes I agree. Post-modernism is so out of fashion it's ridiculous.

it's at the roundabout next to portside wharf.. i think it is mostly low-rise stuff so perhaps not so interesting for this forum on it's own. in the context of the supreme court site however, it's our first glimpse at what shayer might be like as a developer.

Is it a waterfront site or adjacent to the park? All I can find is that it's on Remora Rd. Didn't even know that they had any interests out that way.

According to the ULDA they had a very creative and impressive design... Hmmm... Hoping...

Here's an article with some more info from December 2011:

HAMILTON HITS A HIGH SPOT

The Shayher Group has swooped on a major mixed-use development site in the urban renewal precinct of Northshore Hamilton.

The company, which has been active in retail assets in southeast Queensland, was the successful bidder for the purchase of the Urban Land Development Authority's 1.07ha Remora Rd site.

Jones Lang LaSalle's Seb Turnbull negotiated the $12 million deal which is due to settle in late January.

The Northshore Hamilton development is the Shayher Group's first major construction project in Queensland.

The private company has proposed to build seven buildings ranging from five to 12 levels over a shared basement.

The land is configured into three sites with a sub-precinct plan approval for 19,535sq m of residential, 4070sq m of commercial and 1140sq m of retail.

The proposal includes about 300 dwellings, contemporary architectural design, green walls and community gardens.

Mr Turnbull said interest in the ULDA's Remora Rd site was strong, with eight expressions of interest submissions received.

"A key attraction was the opportunity to create a landmark entry statement at the gateway to the greater Northshore precinct," he said.

Matt Leyshon, director of urban development at the ULDA, said: "The Shayher Group submitted a strong bid including a simple deal structure and a creative and exciting design proposal which will add to the diversity of housing and the urban amenity at Northshore.

"Development by The Shayher Group will complement the activity already under way at Hamilton."

The ULDA will be providing up to $3 million into a shared equity scheme to enable people who may not otherwise be able to access this market to buy into Northshore Hamilton.

"Northshore Hamilton is the most significant waterfront redevelopment in Brisbane since Expo 88 and South Bank," Mr Leyshon said.

Wow:

Five-star hotel part of mixed-used precinct to replace courts



An artist's impression of what the logo for a new five-star hotel in Brisbane could look like.



Some of Queensland's most notorious citizens have contemplated their fate looking out at the view it offered.

Now, international tourists will have the same opportunity.

The former Brisbane Supreme and District Courts site has been sold to the Shayher Group, part of the Taiwan-based conglomerate Par Jar Group, in a deal which will see the largest single CBD development to date built on George Street.

The 7892 square metre block is to become a mixed-use precinct that will include a five-star hotel.

The design is yet to be finalised and its ultimate height is still unknown, but as a minimum requirement of the sale, Shayher Group will also be required to build a 65,000 square metre residential, serviced apartment tower, as well as a commercial office tower of about 45,000 square metres.

Public works minister Tim Mander announced the government had finalised the $63 million sale on Monday night.

"The site backs on to the Brisbane River and is close to the government precinct and council building – it is very rare that a site of this size becomes available for development. It is also close to South Bank and the Cultural Precinct including the Performing Arts Centre and Art Galleries," Mr Mander said.

"Shayher Group would commence early site works as soon as possible, giving the construction industry a much needed boost – both in job creation and investment stimulus.

"When considered with the construction of 1 William Street, the redevelopment will add further stimulus to the construction industry in the South East corner."

Tourism minister Jann Stuckey said the hotel would go some way to addressing Brisbane's hotel room shortage, estimated to cost the local economy $136 million and 87,000 visitors a year.

"Creating new hotel-style accommodation will be an important part of reversing that trend, with this project set to add 190 new rooms in a five-star hotel building," she said.

The state government has set a target of $30 billion in overnight visitor expenditure by 2020. Ms Stuckey said developments such as this would help the government achieve its goal.

The former court house, which was built in the late 1970s to replace the original 1800s building which was destroyed by fire in 1968, was placed on the market by the Bligh government after the construction of the Queen Elizabeth II court house site last year.

At the time, the money had been earmarked for the now-abandoned Cairns entertainment precinct proposal.

Expressions of interest closed in August last year. Shayher Group, which partnered on the Northshore development in Brisbane, is understood to have beaten Charter Hall Group and Mirvac Group with its tender.
