Brisbane Skytower is a new apartment building in the CBD of Brisbane. It’s an architecturally striking building — standing almost 300 metres tall it will be the tallest residential building in Brisbane when completed. The Brisbane Skytower is complete up to level 66 and many residents have already moved into the lower level apartments. Construction of levels 42 – 66 was completed in August 2018 and the whole 90-level building will be finished by early 2019.
Brisbane Skytower adds 1141 new apartments to the Brisbane market, spread across the 89 floors of the building. The project is valued at $376 million dollars and will have taken 160 weeks to build upon completion. It will be the tallest residential building in Brisbane and the second tallest in Queensland, only beaten out by Q1 thanks to the spire (which some say is cheating when it comes to skyscrapers).
The building is triangular, with double-glazed full height glass walls reflecting the Brisbane sky throughout the day, sunset and evening. This glass is also designed to help keep noise to a minimum. The triangular shape of the building also maximises views of the river and the Botanic Gardens.
Of the residents that have already moved in, there is a mix of owner-occupiers and investors, with the majority being investors. As well as long-term leasing options, there is also short-term hotel stays available at Brisbane Skytower which is managed through Song Properties.
SEPTEMBER 2019: Brisbane Skytower has now finished construction, with most apartments occupied by buyers. If you want to find out what buyers think about the project, check out our Buyer Insights series.
FEBRUARY 2019: Completion of Levels 68 – 81 due in March 2019. Brisbane Skytower is around 90% sold with just over 100 one, two, and three-bedroom apartments for sale in Brisbane CBD. Prices in Skyrise (L68 – 81) are from $749,000 for a one bedroom apartment, $805,000 for a two bedroom apartment, and $1,085,000 for a three-bedroom apartment.
Ideal for exploring Brisbane on foot, the Brisbane Skytower is located in the middle of the CBD. Close to the Botanical Gardens, the Brisbane River and the waterfront bars and restaurants of Eagle Street Pier, and the famous Southbank. The Treasury Casino and shopping precincts such as Wintergarden and Queen Street Mall are also nearby.
The Brisbane Skytower is ideal for people who work in and around the city because the public transport links are fantastic in this area of Brisbane. Central Train Station is a ten-minute walk (900 metres) and the Eagle Street Pier Ferry Terminal is just seven minutes on foot (550 metres).
At Brisbane Skytower, there are three recreation decks for buyers to enjoy as well as a luxury health club and spa. The contemporary design of the building extends to the indoor and outdoor pools, gym and outdoor seating areas, all styled with luxury finishes. Level 66 is excellent for functions (we hosted our last magazine launch there) with a large pool and semi-open-air space. On completion, the building will host Australia’s highest infinity pool which will be situated on Level 90. There is a private dining room with a kitchen in the Skyrise Lounge for residents to entertain guests. Brisbane Skytower residents and guests will also have access to a 24-hour five-star concierge.
Parking at Brisbane Skytower is not abundant, with most of the one-bedrooms being sold without a carpark as standard.
