Architects from New York, Chicago and Singapore have been shortlisted to take part in a competition for the design of Cbus Property’s second commercial office project in Brisbane’s CBD, 205 North Quay.

It plans to develop the project in conjunction with partner Nielson Properties.

HASSELL, REX (New York) and Richards & Spence; Cox Architecture, SOM (Chicago) and Rapt Studio; BVN and SHoP Architects (New York); and Architectus and WOHA (Singapore) will compete for the opportunity to produce a concept design for the circa $600 million sustainable A-grade commercial tower that capitalises on its unique waterfront location and transforms the CBD precinct.

“The calibre of expression-of-interest submissions received from architects were of the highest quality, attracting both local and international interest and making the partnership’s analysis and decision-making process difficult,” Adrian Pozzo, CEO of Cbus Property, said.

“Brisbane is a new world city and we plan to partner with the world’s best architects. The strong interest from the architects both locally and internationally has been driven by Cbus Property’s track record, the site’s significant riverfront location, and Brisbane as an emerging global city.

“The site provides an unrivalled opportunity to establish the innovative workplace of the future and create a new commercial building of inspiring architecture that will represent the new world of work.”

The commercial building is intended to add 50,000 square metres of net lettable area to Brisbane’s CBD office market.

It will form part of an exciting new precinct, the North Quarter, which is undergoing a comprehensive transformation with the delivery of new commercial and residential developments, as well as the new Roma Street Station.

The successful team of architects is expected to be appointed in September, with building construction slated for completion in 2023.
