443 Queen Street is a truly stand-out development currently under construction in the Brisbane CBD. This luxury waterfront development consists of a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments across a 47-storey tower, all with great views. Apartments at 443 Queen Street start from $730,000 for a one-bedroom apartment, $1,175,000 for a two bedder and $2,550,000 for a three and four-bedroom apartment. 443 Queen Street is Australia’s first WOHA designed building, and it has been created with the sub-tropical climate of Queensland specifically in mind. This iconic design, coupled with the rare location and outstanding facilities mean a development of this calibre is unlikely to be repeated in Brisbane.
This project is yet to be reviewed by a PropertyMash journalist and has been listed to provide you with the broadest selection of new property available.

One of the biggest draw cards for 443 Queen Street is the environmentally-oriented design, with these off-the-plan apartments being one of the most environmentally-friendly projects currently under development in Queensland. The building has a ‘breathable facade’ which allows passive ventilation and cross-ventilation of all residences. Natural daylight and air permeates each arrival garden on every floor and helps reduce total energy consumption by up to 60%. Because of this, 443 Queen St will be Australia’s first building to achieve a Generosity Index of 80 and Green Plot Ratio of 205%. The building has been designed to mimic the feeling of a traditional ‘Queenslander’ home, with shelter and greenery a crucial part of the living space. Each apartment sits within a garden environment, with green walls extending all the way up the building.
As detailed in a recent CoreLogic report, of all the Brisbane apartments sold for between $2 million and $8 million, over 25% of these were in 443 Queen Street. Early sales were much higher than anticipated, which enabled construction on the project to start early. In August of 2018, the $6 million penthouse at 443 Queen Street was sold to a local medical professional (making it one of the largest off-the-plan sales in Brisbane’s history).
JULY 2020: Construction continues at 443 Queen Street, and the project is currently expected to finish on time.
JUNE 2019: Construction is well underway at 443 Queen Street’s riverfront building site. These new off-the-plan apartments next to the Brisbane River are due to be complete in 2020.
DECEMBER 2019: Construction on the lower and foundation levels is now progressing quite quickly.
Located right on Queen Street, this development sits in the heart of the CBD, making the apartments perfect for professionals who work in city and downsizers who want to be close to the action. 50m to the right is the heritage-listed Customs House. The restaurants and high-end bars of Eagle Street Pier are only 25m away, as well as the Riverside Ferry terminal, providing easy CityCat access. The Queen Street Mall is also very close by, at only four-minutes walk away. Queen Street and the surrounding precincts are a shopping mecca and also home to a myriad of internationally-inspired restaurants. Kangaroo Point sits directly across from 443 Queen Street, With two large parks, excellent cafes and, of course, the Story Bridge.
Only ten minutes walk from 443 Queen Street is the Howard Smith Wharves precinct. The 700m area along the riverfront features over-water bars, restaurants and parkland with live music and entertainment courtesy of popular craft brewery, Felons Brewing Co. The Howard Smith Wharves precinct also offers an underground park for 359 vehicles, which is a great facility for the 443 Queen Street residences as it provides an alternative for visitors.
443 Queen Street provides a truly outstanding array of residential facilities. The Recreation Deck is spread over an entire floor, covering 1,500m². Accompanying beautifully landscaped, tropical gardens is a 25-metre infinity pool for residents and their guests to enjoy. This floor also has two cabana lounges which overlook the pool and a separate private dining room and kitchen, offering plenty of space for entertaining. Completing the floor is indoor and outdoor yoga rooms, a gym and bathrooms and changing facilities. Each level of the building has its own light-filled arrival garden with natural ventilation to welcome you from the elevator.
Each of the two-bedroom apartments come with one secure car park underneath the building. The three bedroom and four-bedroom apartments all come with two car spaces. Some of the one-bedroom apartments do not come with a car space as standard, although this can be purchased for an additional fee. There will be 24 visitor car parks at 443 Queen Street.
