Heritage lanes
Office – High Rise (16+ Floors)

Heritage Lanes at 80 Ann Street is a 35-level office tower, incorporating more than 60,000 square metres of premium-grade office space. It’s one of Australia’s smartest buildings, embracing leading technology and sustainability initiatives.

Restoring a significant portion of the former Brisbane Fruit and Produce Exchange on Turbot Street constructed in 1906, the ground plane of 80 Ann has been conceived as a modern open marketplace, creating 1,900-square metres of connective and activated public realm.

Project leader and Woods Bagot Principal David Lee said the project’s sustainable function could be achieved through efficient services, recycling of materials, a ‘breathable’ design that maximises passive principles and capitalises on Brisbane’s subtropical climate.

Materials were also locally sourced and manufactured to reduce transportation, with 90 percent of construction waste recycled to divert from landfill. As developer Mirvac’s first large-scale net-zero office building in operation, Heritage Lanes is setting a new standard for environmentally responsible development.

Central Park North
Unbuilt – Multi-Unit Housing

Central Park North is a 25-story mixed-income residential building which incorporates a diverse offering of residence sizes with rich amenities in addition to a 14,000sf ground floor community facility. Drawing inspiration from the rich cultural heritage and architectural context of its Harlem community, the design expresses contemporary aesthetics while honoring the significant history of the area.

Principal and New York Studio Chair, Matthew Stephenson, shares, “The 110th Street Concept Design represents our team’s unique approach to the project’s incredible Central Park and Harlem location, providing site-specific views at the upper floors through angular bay windows while shifting to create a pedestrian scale at the tower podium.”
