300 George Street – Brisbane’s Largest Integrated CBD Development

External Render from Bridge

300-George

As of today, Brisbane has a new mother of a development project, and no we’re not talking about the new integrated casino precinct (yet). 300 George Street would be considered large by any international standards, so for Brisbane this project is simply off the chart.

UPDATE – Today the Brisbane City Council has given the green light for this development to proceed. Demolition of the old courthouse is proceeding.

The site which formally housed Queensland’s old Supreme Courthouse will soon accomodate three ultra modern glass towers, one rising to a peak of 82 levels or 274m AHD. The developers behind this project are a joint venture between Shayher Group and Bao Jia Development.

    Anyone know when they will start selling apartments? They seem very shy right now.

    Yeah, im not a fan of the iphone building as others have said…but …if its going to house a real 5 star hotel chain like the mandarin oriental, then ill certainly be pleased. Brisbane desperately needs a major intl 5 star hotel chain like the mandarin.

    The other building look good.

    This is the third development on this site. I wonder if anything remains of the convict hospital and the first Brisbane hospital after free settlement in 1842?????????

    Hope archeologists have a chance to look for remains.

    It’s about time Brisbane started to get some decent architecture that isn’t boring.

    Suncorp are still looking to consolidate 5 current sites into one after their Southbank venture fell through. Just maybe there are some talks going on……..for the space in the office tower. Especially as they occupy the top 13 floors of Brisbane Square at the moment.

    The design is certainly fantastic, although I completely agree with blacknganga – the building we’re currently in on Queen Street is 30 levels and more than half are vacant.

    Why build more commercial buildings when you can’t even maintain or fill the ones you already have?!

    Love the design! Wondering if the Brisbane Airport Corp will give the green light for this development to go ahead? I think this development will be great for Brisbane!!

    These designs are much more welcome than the Combine tower vibe that the early concept gave off.

    Anyone else ntoice the underground bus entry/exit on Adelaide St in the Ground plans?
