An eight-storey, multi-million-dollar mixed-use commercial tower, the final piece of the puzzle in the urban renewal of the Breakfast Creek precinct, has been given the green light.
Churchill Development Group and Into Property will develop Breakfast Creek Quarter on the 6778sq m site at 166 Breakfast Creek Road, nestled between the Mercedes Benz Flagship building and Bunnings at Newstead.
Churchill Developments executive director Jonathan Leishman said the U-shaped commercial and retail tower would maximise views of the city and surrounding areas, while contributing to the urban renewal of the former industrial precinct.
“Primarily the commercial spaces will be from levels four to eight including a serviced office offering designed to appeal to those requiring less space but still wanting a corporate office,” Leishman said.
“The lower levels have been earmarked for a childcare [centre] as well as retail and food outlets and the rooftop for a high-end function space designed for weddings and corporate events.”
Leishman said commercial space ranged from 3300sq m floor plates down to 500sq m, which he hoped would attract a diversity of tenancies.
The Arkhefield-designed building’s podium footprint will cover 82 per cent of the site.
Earlier this month the Brisbane City Council unveiled the final design for its $67-million Green Bridge to be built at Breakfast Creek.
The 80m bridge will connect to the Lores Bonney Riverwalk, providing a link to the planned Hamilton Athlete’s Village for the 2032 Olympic Games.
“We believe our development will also be a key link to infrastructure, creating a sense of place for the precinct and building on that foot traffic,” he said.
Construction was due to commence in early 2022.
