Standing at 20 levels, with 21,000m2 of A-Grade office space, AM-60 enhances the emergence of Albert Street as Brisbane’s ‘green spine’. It achieved a 5 Green Star rating and a 4.5 star NABERS energy rating. This high rise commercial office tower in downtown Brisbane reconciles market forces with the specific urban context of its corner address. The major frontage is characterized by a slick and colourful glassy façade, which wraps around the corner into the minor street where tactile concrete and masonry elements give a contrasting character and scale, as well as more substantial solar control. A fragment of the tactility is an embellished masonry screen protecting 4 levels of glass-skinned boardrooms.
