INVOLVEMENT: DEVELOPMENT MANAGEMENT
PDS Australia is currently leading development management for Queen’s Tower, a proposed landmark development for Brisbane, encompassing a world-class design, luxury residences, premium short-term accommodation and a new shopping and dining precinct. Queen’s Tower will form part of the high rise residential precinct already established in the CBD’s north eastern corner, sitting on the 2,735m2 island site between Queen, Adelaide and Macrossan Streets. The proposed development supports the transformation of a commercial building at this site into a new residential and mixed-use precinct better aligned to current market conditions and the city’s expected growth.
Queen’s Tower’s architectural concept was selected from a field of national submissions. The winning concept, by global design and consulting firm Woods Bagot, intends to introduce sculptural architecture to create a distinctive identity and to reinvigorate and shape this precinct. A world-class design features juxtaposed semi-circle forms which create slimline, curved and variable silhouettes from the Centenary Place Park and western Queen Street and Adelaide Street perspectives. Queen’s Tower would deliver 891 luxury residences, 100 serviced apartments, approximately 2,500m2 retail and commercial podium and basement parking for 853 cars and 752 bicycles.
