Construction has begun on a new boutique office tower in Brisbane’s Golden Triangle in Australia.
The building, designed by BVN, will comprise 12 floors from the street level plaza to an exclusive rooftop ‘Sky Terrace’, which will offer views to the Brisbane River.
The tower will offer boutique office space, with average 625m² floor plates, across 7,200m².
Dexus Chief Investment Officer Ross Du Vernet said: “The Annex is a unique new opportunity for smaller businesses to have a front door address in Brisbane’s Golden Triangle.
“This development will create an innovative multi-let product for Dexus’s Brisbane portfolio, and is in addition to plans for the broader Waterfront Precinct to transform Brisbane’s Eagle Street Pier and surrounds into a leading premium business and leisure destination.”
Set among heritage-listed Eagle Street fig trees, the building’s design ensures abundant natural light, fresh airflow and green spaces and connects the indoors to the outdoors through a gardens cascading from the Sky Terrace, together with an operable façade enabling natural air flow.
Flexible workspaces promote collaboration and movement through interconnecting stairs that link each level, creating a vertical workplace neighbourhood.
Connectivity is further enhanced through a public space connecting neighbouring buildings, laneways and streets.
At the plaza level, a forecourt will consist of three retailers, casual dining and covered alfresco seating areas. Customers will also have access to the premium end-of-trip facilities in the adjacent 12 Creek Street building.
Skyline signage will also be offered to businesses seeking to enhance their profile, providing high visibility at street level and from neighbouring buildings.
The building is targeting a minimum 4.5 star NABERS Energy rating. Construction is due for completion in late 2019.
Broad Construction, a member of the CIMIC Group, is the builder. Mark Curtain and Chris Butters at CBRE have been appointed to market the project.
Dexus had recently completed a development at 480 Queen Street in Brisbane.
