Probuild bags $294m contract to build residential skyscraper in Australia
September 01, 2017 – Australian construction firm Probuild has been awarded an AUD370m ($294.5m) contract by the Australian property investor Cbus Property to carry out the design and construction of 443 Queen Street, a residential skyscraper in Brisbane, Australia.
The 47-floor residential development will house 264 apartments. It has been designed as connected twin tower, presenting an open fan-like structure sitting atop an elevated car park.
The project features a permeable, layered, subtropical appearance that includes extensive landscaping on the façade of the building.
The apartment tower as well as the majority of the car parking levels have elevated above a generous and open public domain.
Probuild Queensland managing director Jeff Wellburn said: “This is an incredibly unique project for the City of Brisbane and Probuild is motivated and ready to bring it to life.
“We are a leader in high-rise residential projects nationally, having both Sydney and Melbourne’s tallest residential towers on the Probuild workbook. We will be leveraging this experience to deliver at 443 Queen Street.
“Cbus Property is a repeat client for Probuild and this appointment is a testament to our teams that are delivering iconic projects together, such as the new Victoria Police Headquarters in Melbourne.”
Construction is set scheduled to start in September 2017 with completion scheduled in 2020.
