Developer Walker Corporation has lodged plans for a commercial tower in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, ditching a 433-apartment twin-tower development approval in favour of a $400 million commercial project. 

The proposed A-Grade tower at 801 Ann Street on the Austral Motors Site has been planned to have 26 storeys and will sit on a full city block bordered by Ann, McLachlan, Connor and Morgan streets. 

Walker general manager for Queensland Development Peter Saba said the tower would raise the bar for commercial property in Brisbane, with its next-generation commercial design. 

“This building will appeal to top-tier companies with its large, flexible floorplates and state-of-the- art features,” he said. 

Walker Corporation recently also submitted a development application for a 73-hectare master planned community, Breakwater, that will connect Robina, Merrimac and Gold Coast City Council’s planned Green Heart Parklands. The masterplan proposes 2,000 townhouses and apartments and is expected to house 3,700 residents.

The building, after approval and completion, would have approximately 5,000 workers, said Saba. 

“The site is sounded by cafes, restaurants and quality retail in the popular James Street precinct, so workers can make the most of the location,” he said. 

It will also have 5-Star Green Star rating. Other key features of 801 Ann St will include a light-filled lobby, site-specific artwork and winter rooms and terraces on certain floors.

Saba said 801 Ann St would significantly expand Walker’s presence in Queensland.

“We have been looking for the opportunity to deliver a significant commercial building in Brisbane and this site is the perfect location,” he said.
