111 Eagle Street by Cox Rayner

Cox Rayner Architects and ARUP are the team behind this new addition to Brisbane’s urban fabric.

January 23rd, 2012

Due for completion in March 2012, 111 Eagle Street is a new 45 storey office tower in Brisbane’s CBD, adjacent to the Brisbane River.


The tower’s organic structure features column that twist and turn up, forming a tree-like canopy at the roof. The columns were designed to be exceptionally thin, maximising river views from the interior.

Designed by Cox Rayner Architects with engineers ARUP, the form allows loads to be gradually transferred diagonally down to the ground, with no need for a loading dock below.



A public thoroughfare space makes up the ground floor, with a large open pedestrian area linking the city to the main ferry terminal. The foyers of the building then make up the first level.


111 Eagle Street is expected to attain an above 6 star Green Star rating under the GBCA’s rating system.
