Investa Commercial Property Fund (ICPF) recently unveiled a major foyer upgrade of its A Grade, 16-level office building at 259 Queen Street in Brisbane’s CBD at a well-attended event.

Designed by COX Architecture, the upgraded foyer integrates the building sympathetically with the heritage façade of the adjacent General Post Office (GPO) via a glass canopy, creating a modern, light-filled entrance, said a media release. 

The foyer to the flagship building in Brisbane’s Golden Triangle now also includes direct access to a 70 seat café, a concierge and lifts.

NAB is set to relocate 650 employees to the building in August 2017. It has a 10-year lease for more than 8,000 sqm of space over two levels.

The building at 259 Queen Street comprises more than 24,780 sqm of net lettable area. It has a 5-Star NABERS Energy rating. 

Investa also plans to improve 259 Queen Street’s end-of-trip facilities for better tenant health and well-being.

The proposed new facilities will include 150 bicycle spaces, 200 lockers and upgraded change rooms. Value-add services include a towel service, bike servicing, drying room and dry cleaning.

ICPF fund manager Jason Leong said the integration with the adjacent GPO provides “vital connectivity to the retail and food outlets of the Golden Triangle and Eagle Street Pier”. 

Guests included Investa’s CEO Jonathan Callaghan, ICPF fund manager Jason Leong and other key stakeholders, including incoming anchor tenant NAB and other Federal and State Government tenants.
