A development application has been lodged by Mirvac for a new 37-storey, A-grade commercial tower located at 200 Turbot Street, Brisbane City.
Designed by Blight Rayner, the redevelopment comprises of a suspended campus style commercial tower positioned adjacent to the former Brisbane Dental Hospital and College which is a heritage building.
The proposal includes three ground floor retail outlets as well as new cross block link interfaces with Wickham and King Edward Parks.
The design of the tower has been split into three distinct zones – low rise, medium rise and high rise – which has been achieved through the provision of sky gardens at Podium Level 8, Level 19 and the roof.
As the Turbot Street streetscape is pedestrian only, vehicle access to the tower is proposed via a back unnamed road connecting to Wickham Terrace.
To facilitate widening of the unnamed road, some existing low concrete retaining walls and vegetation are proposed to be removed. The Brisbane Tuff retaining wall is proposed to be removed and reinstated on the property boundary of the Observatory Park.
The project site is situated in close proximity to the planned Brisbane Live arena which would host the Swimming at the Brisbane 2032 Olympic Games.
