Cbus Property has been appointed by the Queensland Government as developer of 1 William Street tower, a building that represents a significant and striking addition to the Brisbane skyline from afar, while creating a rich pedestrian precinct at ground level.

The design solution through this site will provide a much needed link between the city and Brisbane River. The new commercial office tower, which will accommodate the Queensland Public Service, provides a symbol of Queensland’s strong sense of purpose, identity and confidence in its future.

The form of the tower is angled away from the Brisbane CBD so it sits sensitively within the immediate CBD context but also look outwards to the interior of Queensland sending a strong message of inclusion and an ethic of an open public service. “Our vision for 1 William Street is that it should be emblematic on the Brisbane city skyline,” says Mark Damant, Principal architect in Woods Bagot’s Brisbane studio. “As an aorganic fluid form, the tower will also be inclusive to the state and will sensitively mediate the rich environmental, architectural and social heritage of the site and the city,” says Damant.
