GREEN LIGHT FOR GOLD TOWER IN BRISBANE

A GOLD 82-storey tower is set to brighten up Brisbane's skyline after securing development approval.

Developed by Aria Property Group and designed by ROTHELOWMAN, 171 Edward Street will become one of the tallest buildings in the CBD.

The curved, gold façade was inspired by 'Bird in Space', a series of 16 sculptures created by Constantin Brancusi between 1923 and 1940.

ROTHELOWMAN principal Jeff Brown says the art collectively represents the notion of flight.

"The design intent is to reinforce the slender nature of the tower proportions through the refinement of a simple, singular and organic form that is contextually responsive," Brown says.

"Wind engineering objectives are addressed through the roughening effect of the open corners and asymmetry of the building form."

Residents of 171 Edward Street will be able to utilise more than 3000sqm of communal recreation space, the largest offering in the Brisbane CBD for one building.

A four-storey podium featuring more than 2100sqm of retail and commercial space will also open up the wider neighbourhood.

Brown says the addition of hotel-like amenities provides residents with a sense of luxury and community.

"171 Edward Street is set to become a world-class residential development that positively enhances Brisbane CBD's emerging reputation as a highly liveable civic centre," he says.

171 Edward Street will comprise a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments across 652 apartments.
