Towering 47 storey residential block 443 Queen Street boasts 264 apartments to an unrivalled Brisbane location, developed by Cbus Property in partnership with prestigious international architectural practices Singapore based WOHA and Brisbane based Architectus.

The design of the building moves away from a traditional sealed square plan to one that is open, allowing most apartments to occupy a corner position. By opening up the design in this way, the facade of each apartment is double that of a typical residential tower of this size. It also provides benefits for each apartment, including a building that is open to the air, more natural light and views of the Brisbane River.

Typically the size of each apartment is 40 to 50 per cent bigger than other residential developments in Brisbane’s CBD to appeal to a broad target market, but with the privacy and size usually only found in a luxury home. Chief Executive Officer for Cbus Property Adrian Pozzo comments “443 Queen Street is guaranteed to offer Brisbane residents an experience like no other. Until now, apartment buildings in Queensland have not been designed in this way – to take advantage of the subtropical environment, which is what makes the building and its design so unique.”

The locational quality of 443 Queen Street is another design principle that makes it stand apart from other residential buildings. 443 Queen Street is only moments away from the Howard Smith Wharves redevelopment and New Farm, making it an iconic addition to many revitalisation projects already underway in Brisbane.

“We are focused on Brisbane and investing significantly in its future with a world class, sustainable and subtropical building,” Pozzo added. “Brisbane is already experiencing a remarkable transformation and the development of 443 Queen Street will appeal to a new generation of buyers, seeking generous living spaces in a central city location.”
