BRISBANE | 111+222 | 270 m + 160 m | 90 + 37 floors

Designed by Bates Smart, this was just released this week. Reported height is exactly the same as Eureka.

90-storey building planned for Vision Tower site
by Michelle Hele
From: The Courier-Mail May 18, 2011 3:27PM

THE site of the failed Vision Tower in the Brisbane CBD has been earmarked for what is being touted as Brisbane's tallest building.

The new owners of the property which spans between 111 Mary Street and 222 Margaret Street, have lodged a development application with the Brisbane City Council for a 90-storey or 297 m-tall development.

It proposes two towers for the site featuring a five-star hotel, commercial and residential development. The project will be known as 111+222.

Not too bad looking. I presume the height is the same as Eureka Tower because of teh height limit?

This is Brisbane, not Melbourne. Unless, is there a height limit across all Australia?

Southbank in Melbourne (note: Brisbane also has a SOuthbank!) has a height limit of 300mRL - Eureka is 297.3mRL.

I dont really know about height limits in Brisbane - it's probably more constrained (as it is nationally) on plot ratios and large sites are a rare commodity in Brisbane - this proposal's site is one of the largest in the CBD AFAIK.

Melbourne has pockets of height limits, but if any design displays "design excellence" the rules can be bent - theoretically if you propose a tower on a large site near enough to current towers, you shouldn't have a problem with height, with a few exceptions like near heritage areas.

Sydney's got a fairly strict height limit - but it differs in which parts of the city you're in - 235m to roof is the highest you can there. Adelaide is very strict as aircraft fly very close to the CBD when runway 23 is in use (which is the predominant usage at the airport) - 125-135m is the max.

Perth note sure.

But all in all, there's no national height limit - except for where it directly involves aircraft, it depends on the state and city as planning is in these two realms.

I read somewhere that there have been a couple failed proposals on this site so I'm really hoping this will happen.

Whoops. Yes, Brisbane is not Melbourne. I got mixed up because I thought I saw Eureka Tower in the third rendering.

I was under the impression that CASA (Australian Aviation Authority) has introduced a 300m height limit for all Australian cities. As far as I know you can actually build higher, but you need to get their permission first.

You might be correct - but the emphasis is on the rules can be bent on a case-by-case basis.

i.e for Adelaide - as above - when Runway 23 is in operation, you're quite close to the CBD: http://www.airliners.net/photo/Qanta...838/0221959/L/

and this is reflected in the height limits:



(airport is to the west of the CBD, the further from it the higher the height limit)

Brisbane's airport is a fair way from the CBD and any plane flying under 1000m really shouldn't be there!

Developers in race to the summit

THE race to the sky is heating up in Brisbane, with local authorities last night approving the city's first 90-storey tower in defiance of a flat residential property market and already heavy high-rise unit development.

Depending on who you speak to, the proposed 274m skyscraper is either a vote of confidence in CBD living or an oversized act of folly.

The building will rise from the inner-city site that was earmarked for the failed "Vision" tower, which was supposed to be the country's third-tallest building until the 2008 global financial crisis brought it back to earth.

When Brisbane's CBD was flooded last January, the excavated basement pit filled with muddy waste water.

Its planned successor, given development approval last night by Brisbane City Council, will contain a 380-room hotel, offices, parking and no fewer than 800 apartments over 90 floors.

For now, it is known as 111+222 - unglamorously after the numbers of its corner site on downtown Mary and Margaret streets.

Brisbane council set to approve tower

If the project proceeds, it will join "High-rise" Harry Triguboff's Meriton group's newly occupied Soleil tower (234m, 74 storeys, 464 apartments) and the under-construction Infinity project (260m, 81 storeys, 546 apartments) in dominating the Brisbane skyline.

Forget the house on stilts: a unit in the sky is becoming the signature place to live in the Queensland capital.

In the CBD, the existing Aurora and Riparian Plaza buildings contain hundreds of apartments scattered over 67 and 53 levels respectively.

More than 650 high-rise units are being constructed at Waterfront Newstead, overlooked by the city towers, and the first stage of the nearby Albion Mill development will add 134 more.

Bowen Hills, two train stops from the CBD, bristles with cranes as another cluster of apartment blocks go up.

Independent property analyst Michael Matusik doubts, however, whether the proposed 111+222 tower will fare any better than its ill-fated predecessor, Vision.

He worked on that development 10 years ago, and said it was simply too big for its own good.

Mr Matusik said the developers of the new building, Billbergia Group, would probably run into the same trouble securing pre-sales and project finance.

"There is enormous risk with a building that size, but good luck to them," he said.

It doesn't help that Brisbane has been knocked off its perch as Australia's happening property market, with local home prices falling by 5.2 per cent over the past 12 months, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics -- more than any other capital.

Billbergia spokesman Rick Graf insisted the new tower might exceed its current approved height if the developers could overcome air traffic control concerns and persuade the council to allow a planned extension to 300m.

"There aren't too many projects of this stage being done around Australia at the moment but this one has more legs than most," Mr Graf said yesterday, unveiling the development plan.

"The market has to be able to absorb what you can produce, and we're confident the package we've put together here will be very marketable."

At 300m, the proposed tower would be Australia's second-tallest building, behind Q1 on the Gold Coast (322.5m). Under the existing plan, it would still come in third after Melbourne's Eureka Tower (297.3m).
Woooooooo! Approved!
