"Trilogy Tower is a 70 storey multi-use tower that derives its name from the three integrated environments contained within its spectacular steel and glass facade - office space, living space and hotel space. With its gaze firmly fixed on success, Trilogy Tower will become a centrepiece for Brisbane's future workforce, short stay visitors and permanent residents.
The $650 million to come to life on the site known as the Red Cross building, has been approved to 250m high, but will climb much higher once the City’s height limit is removed under the new CBD Masterplan. The state-of-the-art ultra-highrise tower will also contain the Brisbane CBD’s first new 5-star apartment hotel project in more than a decade.
The residential apartments will offer living areas from 85 sqm through to double-storey sky-homes of up to 350 sqm. Permanent residents at the top of the building will enjoy design, finishes and amenity rarely seen before in Australia.
The 5-star hotel accommodation component of the building comprises one and two-bedroom apartments of up to 100 sq m in living area. APH has signed a heads of agreement with a soon to be announced 5-star operator after fielding inquiry from a dozen or more local and international hotel management groups.
This iconic development will deliver the next generation of technology and sustainable design with first class accommodation facilities for office workers, short-term visitors to Brisbane and permanent residents as well as unparalleled and uninterrupted views of the Brisbane River, the Story Bridge and greater Brisbane,” said APH Managing Director John Wilson.
“The residential buildings we see around the CBD now are a part of the first generation of CBD living in Brisbane,” Mr Wilson said. “This new tower will meet the standards of a market that won’t be moving in until 2011, so it has to be beyond the forefront of design innovation."
