French Quarter in Alice Street

From the Devine website, which shows that three towers are planned:

"Devine Limited has recently obtained control of a 7,252sqm parcel of land in the Brisbane CBD directly opposite the Botanic Gardens."

"A circa 54 storey high-rise development incorporating a 120 - 150 room 6 star boutique hotel approximately with circa 70 first class residential units ranging in size from 250 - 800sqm gross and valued at between $3 million to $15 million each. The development is located on the corner of Alice and Albert Streets opposite the Brisbane Botanical Gardens.

Projects Status:
The building is currently in the initial schematic design and we have run an international design competition which we believe will produce a visionary landmark design. Submissions have already been received from some of Europes finest architects. We have also run an international tender seeking expressions of interest from leading hotel operator-managers and have 12 responses from national and internationally renowned organisations in the field.
Some of those include:
The Park Hyatt
The Regent
Conrad Hilton
A development application will be lodged over the site once the new Brisbane City Neighbourhood plan has been adopted in 2008."
