Meriton on Adelaide Street

See Brisbane Times article

"...Meriton last week resubmitted plans for a new 250m building, to be constructed on the corner of Adelaide and Macrossan streets, which it describes as "tall, slim and elegant".

The tower's facade comprises grey-coloured glazed windows broken up by "continuous vertical elements" and horizontal perforated metal screens, according to Meriton's new development application.

Large expanses of clear glass on lower levels will create a colourful and active footpath space, the developer said. It plans to include street-level retail space for restaurants and cafes.

The highrise tower will combine a mixture of serviced and residential apartments, while a three-storey podium will include commercial space.

The building will also boast a 10-level basement car park that is tipped to require one of the biggest excavation efforts in the city's construction history...."
