Brisbane’s midtown is set to undergo a significant transformation after approval was given for the $750 million 101 Albert Street project by Economic Development Queensland (EDQ).
Developed by the Government-owned Queensland Investment Corporation (QIC), this project plans to breathe new life into Albert Street with a 45,000 sqm mixed-use commercial building designed by Architectus and Henning Larsen.
The proposed tower, built on top of the new Albert Street Cross River Rail Station, will appear as a subtropical vertical garden, seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor areas, paying homage to Brisbane’s unique climate while embracing innovative and sustainable design.
101 Albert Street seeks to create a permeable architectural form that connects past, present, and future. According to Architectus, an integration of cultural elements underscores a commitment to honoring the region’s rich history and heritage.

Anticipating the evolving nature of work, the development accommodates new ways of working with flexible spaces that break down traditional office boundaries. This approach blurs the lines between office buildings, public spaces, and indoor/outdoor connections, fostering a dynamic and collaborative atmosphere.
The site prioritises not only office spaces but also features best-in-class retail and dining concepts, creating a vibrant atmosphere for occupants and visitors.
Emphasising generous public and civic spaces, the project aims to foster community engagement and social interaction, with the expansive rooftop area serving as a versatile space within the development.
This development puts people at the heart of precinct planning and design that will reimagine the way Brisbane works, plays and socialises.
