No1 ANZAC Square

AsheMorgan is proud to announce the completion of the significant transformation at the newly branded No1 ANZAC Square. The precinct was officially launched by the Queensland Treasurer and Minister for Trade and Investment, Cameron Dick, in December 2021.

AsheMorgan has transformed a Brisbane city block tying three buildings together into a connected and contiguous office precinct. 140 Creek Street, 295 Ann Street and 232 Adelaide Street, Brisbane underwent a $25 million renovation designed by Architectus and carried out by Hutchinson Builders.

At 52,500sqm spanning half-a-hectare of land, No1 ANZAC Square is the seventh largest office complex in Brisbane, with an impressive tenant list including numerous state and federal government departments. The project has transformed the precinct to reflect and honour the adjacent public space, which is Queensland’s pre-eminent war memorial.

AsheMorgan’s renovations of No1 ANZAC Square have reconnected the three buildings and embraced Brisbane’s subtropical climate. The finished project contains more than 6,000 plants including two mature trees, 180sqm of green walls, 18 large suspended hanging-planters and four water features, which complement the refurbished building lobbies, an impressive glass atrium entryway, and five-star end-of-trip facilities.

“The centrepiece of it all is the new glass atrium – a soaring five-storey-high open space that will become the new heart of the precinct” (Stephen Pratt, Architectus).

The building works were carried out by refurbishment specialists, Hutchison Builders over a 14-month period and embraced environmentally sustainable elements, “over the course of the project we have removed 540 tonnes of concrete, which has been recycled offsite, and added all-new finishes” (Russell Fryer, Hutchinson Builders).
