Bidding for the future: 1 William Street, Brisbane

Client:Cbus Property
Location:Brisbane, Queensland

1 William Street in Brisbane will soon be transformed from an unused car park to a bustling civic centre.

The Queensland Government recently announced Cbus Property as the winning proponent for the development of 1 William Street.

This project will revitalise the precinct, bringing culture, community and landmark architecture to the southern edge of Brisbane’s CBD.

1 William Street will accommodate significant parts of the Queensland Public Service. The proposal combines the longstanding tradition of civic service with contemporary design, meeting the needs of government today and into the future.

The proposal also includes public art, pod cafes and landscaped gardens to create a vibrant streetscape and riverfront.

In addition to its unique contribution to the Brisbane skyline, the positive economic impact of Cbus Property’s offer will be seen across the state.

The new building is expected to save at least $60 million per year in taxpayer dollars and create approximately 1,000 jobs.
