Project summary

Heritage Lanes at 80 Ann is a world-class office tower, spanning 35-levels, designed for 7,000 employees and incorporates more than 60,000 square metres of premium-grade office space. It’s one of Australia’s smartest buildings, embracing leading technology and sustainability initiatives.

Through this restoration of a significant part of the former Brisbane Fruit & Produce Exchange on Turbot Street, the ground plane of 80 Ann has become a modern-day open marketplace, with retail and spaces designed to encourage workers, locals, and tourists to mingle from day through to the evenings.

Award for Commercial Architecture

The Heritage Lanes office tower has a simple and well-placed core, making for an open, flexible floorplan that accommodates large corporate tenants over interconnected floors.

Select floors have operable façades and accessible balconies to the north, with connectivity to the outside also allowing natural ventilation. The base of the building avoids a traditional podium, making for a publicly accessible two-level ground plane with an intricate cross-city block connection that liberates urban linkages to the west.

The tower’s setback allows natural light and ventilation to penetrate deep into the lower public levels and their collection of interconnected meeting, commercial, and entry spaces.

The roof is characterised by a highly visible large volume; this and a strong graphic digital display allow the tower to be recognisable across the city.

Commendation for Urban Design Architecture

Heritage Lanes makes new connections through a previously impenetrable site, opening fresh opportunities for permeability through the western fringe of the Brisbane CBD. The two publicly accessible lower levels work together to make multiple volumetric links and connections that take advantage of the natural light afforded by the tower offset above.

Heritage Lanes provides plenty of alternative forms of public engagement and amenity in a private site amongst heritage remnants, with landscape and vehicular access also cleverly integrated into the site’s public realm.
