Developer Plans Mixed-Use Tower with Sustainable Features in Brisbane

29 September 2020 | Brisbane, Australia

Hudson Investment Group has submitted plans for a mixed use development in Brisbane’s fast-growing inner north. 

Plans have been put forward for a 24-story mixed use building at 41 Brookes Street in Bowen Hills, set to comprise 13 levels of A-grade office space and a 128 room hotel at the building’s peak.

In early 2019, Hudson picked up the site for AUD$3.8 million (US$2.7 million).  The investment group has enlisted Cottee Parker to design the 21,500 square meter project across a 2,000 square meter amalgamated site at the northern edge of Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.

The proposed mixed use development, set to replace two existing two story office and industrial buildings, lies within the 100-hectare Bowen Hills priority development area—an precinct undergoing rapid change, transitioning from low-set urban grain to predominantly medium-density towers.

The development will hold a dual frontage on both Brookes Street and Exhibition Street and will feature a four story green podium and green spine.

The building will feature a rooftop terrace, pool and wellness facilities oriented to the south in order to protect neighboring amenity and promote views to the CBD.

Hudson is also implementing sustainable practices across the project, targeting a 4 Star Green Star Design Rating including 4.5-Star NABERS Office Energy rating.

To meet these goals the building will feature solar panels, waste and water management systems, as well as intelligent lighting systems throughout.

The building will offer 170 car parking spaces across one basement parking level and five additional levels within the building’s podium as well as 107 bicycle spaces and end-of-trip facilities.
