The failed Vision tower site in Brisbane’s CBD has been sold to an Australian building and civil construction company following an extensive marketing campaign. The vacant site has been bought by Billbergia Group, which specialises in building and development, design, project management and facilities management.
Originally scheduled for completion in May 2012, Vision is a landmark development of a 5,478sqm site fronting Mary and Margaret Streets in the Brisbane CBD. The original designs included basement car parking, three levels of retail, 15 levels of office space, two observation decks and 53 levels of residential apartments.
“At this stage it is unclear whether the purchaser will build the original planned development. We will endeavour to obtain details from the purchaser with regard to their future intentions for the site and will provide further details to all stakeholders as these become available,” Campbell says.
The sale was negotiated by Jeff Dolan from Colliers International and Damian Winterburn from CapLand Real Estate Advisors, who jointly managed the sale process after receiving in excess of 10 offers.
