A development application has been submitted by Capricorn Asset Management Pty Ltd for a 44-storey commercial office tower located at 33 Herschel Street, Brisbane City.

The building would accommodate 15,090m2 of commercial GFA across 39 storeys from levels 4 to 41.

Designed by Bureau Proberts, the site’s 20 metre frontage gives the tower a slender 11.5 metre width.

A large 321m2 gym is proposed on level 3 which includes bike storage, repair and lockers.

According to the development application, the tower would transform the currently underutilised site, to establish tower at the northern gateway entrance into Brisbane’s CBD, which is designed commensurate to the site’s context, and which provides a “striking design outcome” for the site.

Additionally, the size and layout of the commercial offering facilitates contemporary and boutique tenancies which are designed in response to recent market trends and demand for office spaces.

“The podium is designed to be the prominent entry statement into the building, through a combination of large floor to ceiling heights above the lobby; and a mezzanine level which provides additional offerings overlooking the streetscape and lobby. The commercial and retail spaces are designed to cater for a range of tenants to provide the CBD with a variety of businesses and professional services.” – Urbis

  • With relatively small floor plates, substantial intrusive columns and cross bracing on most floor, it will prove difficult to develop efficient tenancy layouts without significant areas of unusable floor space. Can’t see this being enticing for prospective tenants.

  • Not ideal for the residents of the Meriton that had beautiful river views and now will be looking straight out to a bunch of office workers literally metres away.

  • This will significantly be an issue for impacted metiton owners. Its blocks their views, blocks natural light, its very close distance wise – I suppose its ok for those in meriton who do serviced short stay accommodation. Eg airbnb and so forth.
    Long term tenants , well id be wary and this is always the risk of apartment buying – as cities grow there is every chance there will be something built in front that takes away your views, and there is little you can do about it (there may be but its going to be a headache).
