Cbus Property has appointed national Tier-1 contractor Probuild to deliver its landmark 443 Queen St tower under a design and construct contract.

The $375 million development includes 264 apartments and a ground level restaurant with views over the Brisbane River.

It has been designed by Richard Hassell of leading Singapore architecture practice, WOHA in collaboration with a team from Brisbane’s Architectus led by Elizabeth Watson-Brown.

The design approach for the 47-level linked twin towers emphasises sustainability and engagement with the subtropical nature of the city. On every level, extensive greening and gardens reflect the local vegetation.

The car park levels will be above ground to negate the need for mechanical ventilation, and the towers are raised on “stilts” to create a cooling void and allow for views of the river and the nearby, Heritage-listed Customs House.

It aims to be a building that “breathes,” with high levels of natural light and ventilation for each apartment. Lobbies on each floor are entirely naturally ventilated and incorporate gardens.

Overall, it is expected the building will use 60 per cent less energy than the traditional sealed-style multistorey apartment design.

In June 2017, Cbus Property announced that more than half of the apartments had already sold off-the-plan.

Preliminary site works commenced in August 2017, and 2020 is being targeted for final completion.

“This is an incredibly unique project for the City of Brisbane and Probuild is motivated and ready to bring it to life,” Probuild’s Queensland Managing Director, Jeff Wellburn, said.

“We are a leader in high-rise residential projects nationally, having both Sydney and Melbourne’s tallest residential towers on the Probuild workbook. We will be leveraging this experience to deliver at 443 Queen Street.

“Cbus Property is a repeat client for Probuild and this appointment is a testament to our teams that are delivering iconic projects together, such as the new Victoria Police Headquarters in Melbourne.”
