One of Queensland's landmarks and a gathering place since 1875, the Brisbane Showgrounds is a place where people have come to celebrate Queensland lifestyle, local produce, innovation and home grown talent for 140 years. This landmark will become the new heart of Brisbane as the Brisbane Showgrounds welcomes residents, retail patrons, office workers and event visitors to enjoy its spirit and warmth all year round.
Construction has started on 25 King, the world’s largest* and Queensland’s first engineered timber office building. 25 King’s innovative design and timber construction contribute an architectural statement to the fabric of King Street. Prefabricated timber floors, columns and beams complement high ceilings and striking windows, bringing the nature of the forest into your workspace. With state-of-the-art technology, 25 King will be the definition of a connected, collaborative workspace for high performance teams.
The first commercial building in the precinct, Kingsgate, is Queensland's first Six Star Green Star certified commercial building. With up to seven market leading commercial buildings to be delivered in the masterplan, situated at the heart of Brisbane Showgrounds, commercial workers and visitors will flow through the new high street, King Street, day and night with retailers offering them total convenience – what they want, right when they want it. Dining, services and shopping will be at the very core of those needs.
