Gurner has topped out at level 30 of the $600m FV project with all façade works now complete across the project’s two buildings, ‘Flatiron’ and ‘Valley House’.
Construction first commenced in April 2015 with Brookfield Multiplex (now Multiplex) awarded what was at the time considered one of Brisbane’s largest construction contracts, rumoured to be in the vicinity of $150 – $160million.
The project includes 651 apartments, 1860sqm of premium retail space and 2,000sqm of luxury communal amenity, including four pools, a moonlight cinema, VIP areas, commercial size gym among other substantial amenity.
Construction across the first two stages has generated 550 immediate jobs and a further 2,000 jobs off-site.
Gurner signed Winning Appliances as the key anchor tenant, while Mantra’s Peppers hotel has been signed as the sole management rights operator – the largest off the plan management rights deal in Australia.
Designed by Elenberg Fraser, once complete, the project is set to play a pivotal role in the urban renewal of Fortitude Valley and the three buildings will deliver over 3,600sqm of luxury retail, 4,300sqm of resident amenity within the FV Private Club and 981 residential apartments.
Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said, “Brisbane is on the edge of an exciting evolution as Australia’s New World City and we look forward to the significant boost this project will give Fortitude Valley’s daytime economy as it continues to evolve.”
Gurner founder and director Tim Gurner said topping out the first two buildings marked a significant milestone not only for the developer but Brisbane as a progressive ‘new world city’.
