As per recent reports in the media and mentions by forumers, this project looks like it will go ahead and is speculated to have been fully leased by the ATO, with completion scheduled for 2023. Renderings from the DA below.

The appeal against the office tower at the corner of Astor Terrace, Wharf Street and Turbot Street has been rejected.

Therefore this one is to be approved.

Commercial Confidential: Brisbane property, leasing and sales news and gossip

THERE will be plenty of public servants thinking of new digs in the future with the Australian Taxation Office’s likely new Brisbane CBD base to start construction as soon as possible.

Morris Property Group general manager Brodie Lister said it was “full steam ahead” towards the start of construction of the developer’s 27-storey office tower at 152 Wharf St, Spring Hill, after the Planning and Environment Court dismissed an appeal against the project.

Thousands of public servants on the move

It’s a bit of an open secret that the ATO will settle into the tower but Lister refused to comment other than to say the tower has been fully precommitted by an “undisclosed party” on a long-term lease.

The ATO has a number of offices in various locations including 55 Elizabeth St in the CBD and in Chermside and Upper Mount Gravatt in the suburbs. At this stage it’s not known which office will relocate to 152 Wharf St when it is built.

The Morris Group is pretty happy that they can now get on with the job of building their office tower on the edge of Spring Hill which they say will be completed by 2023.

Lister says the tower was a direct response to Brisbane City Council’s planning foresight to accommodate the growing city through initiatives such as the Spring Hill Neighbourhood Plan.

“We congratulate the Queensland Government and Brisbane City Councils planning teams for

having the foresight to promote quality large scale developments such as this,” he said.

“It has confirmed that this development will be an immediate urban renewal catalyst for the inner Brisbane City area.”

The northern side of Boundary St has many heritage homes and should not be over developed but where this tower is going in the triangle of Boundary, Turbot and Leichardt should be allowed to soar upwards.

That's exciting, no dates provided though. Sometimes I feel like a CMP goes up and work starts a week later and other times it feels like almost a year goes by, anyone know if there's any rules surrounding notice periods etc, or why this may be the case?

From the Courier Mail:

THE Morris Property Group is gearing up to start construction in February of the Australian Taxation Office’s new office in Spring Hill.

The tower will consolidate much of the ATO’s operations and we hear ATO bosses are talking to staff at their Chermside and Upper Mount Gravatt about the move.

The ATO is also at 55 Elizabeth St and 143 Turbot St and it is believed they will also move into the 27-storey office tower at 152 Wharf St, which the Morris Property Group aims to completed by the end of 2022.

Currently the group’s construction arm is completing work on the site at the corner of Turbot St in preparation for building to start.

I sound like a broken record, but shame it's not 100m taller.

Wish these 100-130m office towers could occasionally get stacked.

This one had a chance of being Queensland's version of Swanston Central. A tallie on the "other side of the road".
