The Midtown Centre

The Midtown Centre is set to become one of the most interesting and unique developments in Brisbane. In an Australian first, this project re-purposes two existing skyscrapers to become one. This complex engineering process has enormous environmental benefits, with 90% of the existing structure being reused leading to a lower carbon footprint and less pollution.

The two existing 20 storey towers, with common 3 level podium will be re-purposed to achieve a through laneway, combined floor plate and extend to 26 stories. The completed development will deliver retail tenancies off the new laneway and up to 42,000 square metres of A-grade commercial space.

We were also thrilled to hear that The Midtown Centre has been nominated as a finalist in the Australian Engineering Excellence Awards for 2020!

Project Scope:

  • Project Value: $175M
