The Midtown Centre

The Midtown Centre is set to become one of the most interesting and unique developments in Brisbane. 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 will see some unique developments in early 2020 as the Skygarden takes shape – a double-height, 360-degree open air space off a central atrium that extends to floor 26.
