Many who work in the city would claim that the best offices are located right in the heart of all the action, with ease of access and convenience of use.
That is what Australian property developer Walker Corporation is trying to deliver, as they recently lodged plans for a landmark commercial tower at 801 Ann Street, Fortitude Valley.
The proposed commercial development, designed by Cox Architecture, is made up of a three-storey podium, plant level and 22-storey office tower.
According to the application, the building includes a large office floor plan that is designed for maximum efficiency and market demands. There is a total of 46,659 square metres of floor area, with 386 square metres allocated for retail floor space on the ground level. The upper lobby includes a 652 square metre ancillary conference facility which will be set aside for use of the building’s future tenants.
“The ground level contains a grand and striking entry lobby, tenant lobby, a café, two retail opportunities, lift access to end-of-trip facilities, building services and servicing areas,” the application said.
The lobby includes a potential art wall that creates a vibrant entry space. It features a number of significant pieces, including signature works by John Olsen, Dion Horstmans and Michael Johnson, and a creation from Aboriginal artist Tommy Watson. The lobby contains separate lift and stair access to the main building and basement car park, plus escalators to the upper lobby.
