Lendlease has reached structural completion of the world’s tallest and largest engineered timber office building, 25 King, at Brisbane Showgrounds.
Designed and manufactured by Lendlease and owned by Impact Investment Group (IIG), the ground floor plus nine-storey timber commercial tower features open and flexible office space complemented by exposed timber structures to create a contemporary and creative studio environment.
Lendlease is targeting a 6 Star Green Star rating, 5 Star NABERS Energy rating and WELL Core & Shell rating for 25 King, to complement the precinct’s 6 Star Green Star – Communities rating from Green Building Council of Australia.
Global engineering firm, Aurecon, will occupy 43.5 per cent of the net lettable area, with IIG working within Lendlease to secure new tenants for the remaining office space.
25 King is on track for completion later this year.
14General Manager QLD & NT, Lendlease Building, Tony Orazio, said, “The topping out of 25 King represents another significant milestone in the completion of what will be the world’s tallest and largest engineered timber office building by gross floor area.”
Darren Brusnahan, Head of Funds Management – Real Estate, Impact Investment Group, said, “With each new milestone, we get more and more excited about this brilliant building. 25 King is the definition of a connected, collaborative workspace for high-performance teams.”
